I just recently read this topic and was sad to see that you felt so put upon as to want to leave. I am glad to see you are staying. I also approve of the name change and encourage you to revel in the goddess inside. As far as i can tell this site is for us diabetics to be able to share. Not everyone wants to share the same things. For those who dont appreciate your topics, dont read them the rest of us will. I dont always respond to the topics here but yours are always a source of interest, and serve to make me think. I appreciate that. Keep on doing what you do someone is in need of what you do, besides you cant please everyone, no one can.

Exactly highland. I am not hiding behind anonymous to say cruel things I do it for personal reasons that most of you know. If you cannot say anything nice on a post, just do not say anything or do not read it at all. Everyone on this site should feel free to start a discussion. If they get no response that is fine but do not post just to be cruel. and as far as points. sounds like the other anonymous is jealous of how many points Goddess may or may not have. start a discussion, write a recipe, review a product, do not post just to be mean. #1

They evidently have no life and try to make ours more irritated. But it doesn't work. We know the drill. So, just shut up and get a life already. Am I right?

Yes you are so right and if the only reason this person posts anything at all is to be cruel I think they should be the one to leave maybe we should all start flagging the mean posts they make as inappropriate, I for one enjoy this site it is very informative and friendly. People come here hurting and scared looking for help and answers not mean and cruel remarks. This person could drive people away and that would not be good for our site so it is up to us who have been offended to say something

Most or your posts are a waste of my time. It's obvious you are starting all of these worthless posts to gain points. Smart move on your part, however, people who need TRUE help and not points need good information, not to help you stay ahead in the points race.

Please stay I need what you say. I need your friendship. You see for the last 3 years I have been too sick to leave the house. It has been so nice to belong to this group and get many friends. In the real world people stop coming to visit when your sick and in a wheelchair. I have been so lonely for someone to talk to. I have my wonderful husband, but I needed to talk to more than him. So please stay my dear new friend.

Diane,
I'm guessing that "Your troubles" are related to all the discussions you start. And I will gladly admit that there are a lot that I do not read and comment on. But so what? There are a lot of discussions by others that I do not read or comment on either…LOL
That is the great thing about this site, they are always improving things for us. If we come accros a discussion that is of no interest to us, then we simply choose not to track it. Not a big deal. So I'm not quite sure what the real issue is.
Obviously from the replies I've read above, most enjoy you and your discussions. So for anyone who does not find anything of interest in Your comments, well, they can just delete the tracking of those discussions and be done with it.
So, do whatever feels right in your heart.
((((HUGS)))) John

There are two of them that posted here for me to stay. Now they can't stand me for some reason. I don't know why they picked so close to Thanksgiving to do it. The only reason I can figure out is they are hurting and the only way they know how to deal with is to hurt someone else. I have overcome many things in my life. I will this to because I am a survivor. Thank you John((((HUGS))))Diane

In my opinion, this discussion never should have begun. It is childish and silly and only creates negativity on a site that is meant (I thought) to be uplifting and encouraging - a source of information and ideas. This silly drama and stroking of egos needs to stop.

When topics like this arise, those of us who feel this way should just not respond at all. Responding only makes it worse. The parties actually involved may want to "duke it out", but they don't need to bring the entire group into it and start a big hubub.

I didn't feel we judged, but now, I feel like something has been aimed directly at me. lol; look here; I have asked and asked if I had done something wrong. If I did, I tried to make a wrong right, but I still feel I am the butt of this discussion and have never had any of my personal emails responded to. I am sorry if I did something wrong like possibly, accidentally made a similar post. But IJDK

I Think this site should come to an end. Everyone has shown there support for you. Close this before you cause trouble, why are people feeling guilty. Just ignore this discussion and go on from here to the next discussion. Move on everyone.

Hello Misery, may I call you Diane? Pretty please? You have had a little misery in your life but I sense that you are strong and you will shake this off and get back to making your wonderful contributions to this community. I haven't been here very long but I know you are one of my favorites. Thanks for sticking with us. If you changed your username to "Happy Girl" or "Tinkerbell", would that help? Lol! I am looking forward to your next threads. Now I am going to go look to see if you are among my friends here. I certainly want you to be. OK???

Diane,

I too got very depressed and stressed out. I took upon myself and took a 2 week break from the site. I got on in the evenings to read the discussions, but did not perticipate in any. I had to get my composure back. I still kepted up with my friend invites and a few friends contacted me through the send messages personally. There are many days I can't cope with myself let alone anyone else. After the 2 weeks I returned with the attitude to keep my stress levels under control and when things were bad I had to deal with them myself before biting someone elses head off.
You have started some great discussions with many, many points and veiws form everyone. But you have also started discussions that were sad, which I didn't care to read cause they were so depressing. Relax, take a deep breath and get you composture back together, You are a good friend and we would rather see you happy. I know I for one would like to see you happy. I was home bound for the past year. I think I drove everyone crazy and didn't realized I did. I now with help too, go to the library once a month, go to the movies, once a month, I do all these things I don't even want to do but I have to for my sanity. You are a good person and friend. Everyone likes you here, so get yourself back together and don't be so negitive. I myself am the Queen of Negitivity. If I want to think of everything as negitive thats how I'll come across to other people. I been there and done that. I was so hard for me to change, and I'm still not completely there, but I'm trying. My brother said to me a one point in my life, "How do you want anyone to like you when you don't like yourself". Guess what he was right. I didn't like myself. Its over a year now and I'm trying and I know you can too.

I got a letter from a committee member about my posts in the recipe section. it was told to me there were too many with the same words as comments and that I was hurting not helping.This is the second time something like this has happened and I get chewed out. Yes I did make posts with the same words. The people who where in on the first time of me getting called down don't have the balls to admit it. I'm already in trouble so I'm saying what is right and I will end up getting kicked out for it. There is this little stuck up group who if they don't like you your out. If they want the site back to themselves close the damned thing because all your group is going to do is hurt people more than I did. At least I have the balls to ad mit out in the open they don't.

Well now we know. I am sorry for your problem. I have had problems on here too. But I am still here. That group is not running this site, Amy and JOhn are. Have they asked you to leave? Probably not, because I have noticed that they put up with alot on this site and it sounds to me that it was just a matter of wording, we are all quilty of being too wordy. Sometimes we just have to sit back and let things work themselves out. I hope you have read how much people want you to stay and that you will. And really try and ask if you can change your name,from lilmarm52 post, I like Mystery. Please try and have a good evening.

2008-11-23 06:46:27 -0600 Report

Well, you know the saying "freedom of speech" you were right to let us know about this problem. If you want to visit as many new and old friends as you can and say "hi" or just let them know you have been there,it is definitely hard to change your words and replies to each; whether recipe or not, you have the right to use as little, or as many words as you want as long as you aren't being viscious or something. Which I have NEVER seen you do, behind you kid; there for you too. :->)lilmarm

I am begining to think that we all have these days. Sometimes we are feeling depressed or we are experincing a high in our sugars. There are alot of people on here and at one time or another people are going to rub you the wrong way. Just like in your own family. I am guilty of this also. I want to let everyone know that I enjoy your posts very much and you start alot of them on here. Most of them are positive but some are very depressing and negative. I do hope later today you will feel better and realize that you are an important part of this forum. This time of year is very hard on some people. Is there a club or social community in your town you could join. We are just on the computer. I really think you need some social interaction with other people. At my hospital, they have a once of month diabetic meeting where they talk about recipes and socializa in a safe, friendly atmosphere. It breaks my heart when I read these posts from you. Your sign on name is also a statement on how you feel, I wish you could change it. So please try and feel better and do something for yourself today. Burn a candle, read a good book, watch a funny movie, take a nice bubble bath if you can. We are all here for you. I do hope you know that. Have you taken all your meds you are supposed to today.? Please let us know later tonight how you are feeling. We will all be concerned.

2008-11-22 14:54:37 -0600 Report

Yes, Please, and to add to that, you mentioned a while ago that you thought you might want to change your name, and you know what. Every day when you sign on, you see that name; It is almost like you have labeled yourself. Maybe you should be labeled differently; something like: Mystery, It is appropriate yet a little less depressive. Or completely turn it around, like Happimis, or just something that is more uplifting to start your day with. We really will help any way we can to get you to stay. Name it and we will try to help you with it.?

I find this a very odd post. Did someone tell you that they wished you would leave, or are you just in need of some reassurance? I haven't been on this site long, but it seems I see your posts and input on every page as I browse around. In some of your posts you're encouraging others and seem upbeat, but others seem to say that you are having some real issues right now. As I said in an earlier note, you might want to get some counseling, if you are not already receiving it. Our attitude and thoughts are very important to our overall health. Thinking positively helps a lot. Recognizing and appreciating your blessings in life is extremely important to good physical and emotional health. Looks to me like all that have replied wish you to stay. I hope you do.
