I Must Have Struck A Nerve

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

I wrote an article about OCD and my experience with it. I had 74,000+ hits in one day and most of the comments were nothing but bashing me. So glad I don't care a whole lot about what people think of me because they flat out told me I was crazy.
I'm ok with being who I am though. I'm not a psycho, controlling, abusive wacko like they say and I know it. I'm used to people not really liking me for my opinions anyways and those kinds of people don't need to be in my life as far as I'm concerned. emoticon

    I think it's a great article! Unfortunately, I think a lot of the negative comments are from people who don't feel very good about themselves, and they think that putting someone else down will make them feel better. Being on the internet, they can also remain anonymous, and I think that gives them a sense a power. It's not an excuse for their behavior, but sadly, that is the world we live in.

I'm glad you are not letting it get to you.

    I hate to say this but yahoo is the worst place to put anything because they are the meanest people that comment on there. I stopped reading articles comments because of them

    I agree. I think it takes a real sick person to bash someone else for mental health issues in order to make themselves feel better about the person they are!

    I've come to the conclusion that the only way people can feel better about themselves without actually doing anything to better themselves is to make someone else out to be the bad guy!

    I told my son last night when I was reading the comments that all I wanted to do was send out a big picture of me with my hands on my head (kinda like bullwinkle and his horns), stick my tongue out and a video clip of me saying "na na ne boo boo" lol I hope I'm not the only now who understood what I was trying to say there. MY son just looked at me and asked me if I knew how childish I looked doing that. I said "YUP!" He laughed.

Thank you for the comments on the article. If all those people are right, I think I'd rather be crazy than be like any of them! lol

    Good for you. The older I get, the more I realize I do not need to care what mean-spirited people think of me. Hang in there and know that you are worth respecting and loving. It amazes me how many people on the internet are so abusive. I've read horrifyingly abusive comments from people on many sites. It's really best to just ignore them and move on. There are those who really are looking to pick a fight, then there are those who do not know how to express themselves in a constructive manner. In either case, try to let it go. I'm glad you don't let it bother you. Your time is worth too much to spend on meanies.

Very good article, by the way. emoticon
