I have been a way for a long time Melissa and just came back in the last couple of weeks. Glad you decided to stay. Many of us are here for you and ignore the ones that aren't. Be here for yourself and use it as a tool for taking good care of yourself.

I would like to add my concern to Mays'. There are many of us here who care about you, Melissa, and want to see you develop a good and happy life for yourself. When people make unkind comments and judgements, it usually comes from their own pain. That doesn't excuse any of us, but it does help us sometimes better accept each other.

Another option to the discussions would be to start an email group here with those of us whom you feel are supportive. You initiate it, you choose who participates, and no one will accuse you of seeking the limelight.

Frankly, though you said it in anger, I think you have a really good point when you asked why people read your postings if they are just going to be offended. Why indeed? Perhaps, it meets a need of their own that they should perhaps be looking at in more depth instead of putting the responsibility back on you.

I, too, hope you stay. You are in pain and this should be a good and safe place to be. I have taken myself away from the site this morning and spent quite a bit of time thinking about what I want from it. In sheer disappointment at the recent mud slinging, I too was considering leaving.

Pain isn't nice and polite. It hurts.. Helping the hurting is what support is all about. Being there for each other when we are needed and when we are in pain, is when we are most needed and needy.

Glad to hear you are sticking around. If you are running into issues, feel free to let us know. We all need to respect each other here and a lot of us vent, knowing that we will not be judged. Concern does show it's face in different ways and sometimes tough love is what is needed. So hang in there. The beginning can be bumpy. It will get better.

Door331 has a great point. Just ignore the ones that push your buttons. Don't fuel that fire and you will be glad for it. You can always flag a reply if it is inappropriate.

Glad to hear you are sticking around Melissa. Sometimes there are just people that really get on my nerves here and I find it best to try to ignore them. As I mentioned before if you ever have any questions and want to talk feel free to send me a msg.

Regards,

You're welcome. Oh and for some reason I also do not know how to delete accounts. I know I have seen people ask it before but I looked and it was not in the help section or account settings. Heh.

Maybe it is a little hidden, so we have to really think about it first.

Not a bad thing, because we need to know what we are doing and make a rational choice.

Melissa1987,
Don't let one person or a few negative comments dictate your life.
When you became a member of this family, you did so to learn more about diabetes, to get help, and to help others deal with diabetes.

By leaving you will be making that someone happy, but think of those that need your help, those that yo can help and those that can help you.
I had a lot of things said about me and my postings when I first came here, I was ridiculed, attacked and shunned by many but I kept being myself, posting discussions, videos, product reviews and commenting on the discussions of others.
My desire to help others helped me to ignore what others had to say, and I made friends along the way!

So why not reconsider and accept my offer of friendship?
You have my attention as a diabetic connect family member, and that's what counts!

Welcome to the family, stick around!

Yup i am sure… I know there is a lot of good people on this site but for someone to say I'm looking for attention . I don't need those stupid comments

Apparently, you don't need, or excuse me listen to the smart comments either. Trying to catch up on discussions and saw your posts and then couldn't believe what was going on. All I can do is just shake my head.

Would you consider reconsidering deleting your account?
You are a member of a very large, caring family!
