I joined this site to connect with people who are going through the same as I and to learn about steps I can follow to improve my health. I have been harassed and am tired of it. It is effecting my health and I have to stop it. I have enjoyed most everyone here and was starting to get to know some of you. If I am sitting around crying from sheer frustration then it isn't good for me. For those who have been so kind to me, I appreciate you and for others I pray for you.

I am moving on. Life is too precious and too short to harbor negativity. My focus is on doing all I can to improve my life and the lives of my family. Not everyone is going to agree on everything. That is what makes life diverse. I wish love, laughter, and well being for everyone.

Hi BreC I am so very sorry this is happening to you! I can not believe there would be people on here harassing anyone else, at least I hope not because I also just joined. You recently became my friend on here and I hope you stay on here because I am not a mean spirited person and I know there are many others on here who are the same. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater try to ignore those who have been harassing you and keep us good ones on your friend list. We are supposed to support, lift up, encourage, enlighten, each other on here while enjoying each other and what each of us can bring to the table concerning diabetes. So lets all remember this, be nice, be kind, be thoughtful and be loving!

Like everywhere there are some folks that are not very tolerant. Most of us know this is not a trip we wanted to take or a road we wanted to travel. No one here has walked in your shoes or my shoes. This site, to me, is not just about diabetes and how we deal with it, but about life, family, work, kids and everything else that effects (or is it affects) our lives.

I hope I didn't say anything to offend you or anyone else for that matter…sad face..I know that sometimes, because we are not talking, but instead writing, it is hard to convey sometimes the true intentions and meanings of what is being said sometimes…I have been hurt by several post (not on this site) over the years..just to find out that it wasn't the intention of the poster to make me feel bad…THAT BEING SAID..we need to be very careful with our words..and how we address other people here..we all have enough to deal with without worrying about being attacked by others…I hope that it was a misunderstanding..I hope that whoever made you feel harassed did NOT have that intention…But even if they did…nasty people exist in the world…they just do..it is a sad fact of life..PLEASE do not let anything negative anyone says here or anywhere else upset you…I have learned in my years on this earth to pity..and even pray for nasty rude people…because people who are nasty are generally not happy people..Happy people do not insult others or waste the energy God has gifted them with on negativity…God Bless..take a deep cleansing breath and PLEASE try to have a happy New Year..

I totally agree with you Jibber Jabber, we do need to be careful how we put things not everyone is eloquent with speaking nor writing so we all do need to try and be Kind in each writing. With this said and the New Year here Lets make this the beginning of the best year of our lives! xoxo

Bre, Until yesterday I wasn't sure what you meant about being harassed, but in the last 24 hours I have received 2 different posts that I considered rude, condescending, and accusatory. I felt attacked! Not like being backed into a corner, I did reply to them, hopefully to set the record straight. I do not plan on leaving DC because of a few inconsiderate members. There is too much good that goes on here for me to give it up. I hope that you, too, will decide to stay.

who was rude..to you?? I know it might be inappropriate to answer in an open forum..but you could inbox me..I wanted to ask BreC , but she seems very upset and I didn't want to reopen the can of worms in case she was feeling better today..

Bre, I hope you decide to stay. There are a lot of very good people on this site who are so kind and supportive. Please don't let one person run you off. There have been a couple of times that I have felt belittled by one person but I have learned to just ignore. It's just the way some people are.

I am truly sorry you feel that way. For the most part, i have gotten positive interaction with all on this site. I just ignore the "bad" ones and move on. They aren't worth my time and energy.

Happy New Year! Wishing u all the best

I have sent messages to a couple of the administrators and am going to try to let things settle before I make a decision to leave. I appreciate the support from you all. Hoping for a better outcome.

Bre, Hi my name is Betty, I joined this site 9/14, so I am new. I have not be on alot due to family loss and not feeling so good. For weeks I never got a single response to my posts asking question. So I searched the site, as I began to involve myself A few really kind, caring great people began to help me through, and so a few good friends are all you need. I got some uglies too! At first I let it cause me to consider dropping from this site, but then I thought of the valuable help I did recieve from some great folks, and if I them run me away, then they win, and I lose a wonderful resource. Some really good people with the best intent tell you like it is for your benefit. There heart is in the right place…but there are indeed a few who are obnoxiously rude, snide, hurtful or think they know everything, but I decided thats there issue and I was not going to allow their issues to control the good I get from the forum and the good people in it.. Wish you the best, hope you stick around

I'm new here and don't get on this site very much. I'm not sure what you mean by harassed, but I'm sorry to hear it. I hope you have a New Year full of Good Health, Peace and Happiness. I'm looking forward to the new year of NOT being sick since 2014 was a real trial for me. Once again I'm sorry that you have had a bad experience with something that is suppose to help people like us.

Hi there I'm new to the group but would like to be here to be supportive and positive. If someone is harassing you they don't belong here.
Sending you positive sunshine from California, Beckie

I do not know why people get so much joy out of making other people feel bad but I can tell you that they do not belong here. If ever I can be of assistance please do not hesitate to contact me, together we should be able to come up with a solution.

GabbyPA 2014-12-29 19:17:07 -0600 Report

Tears like that are never a goal here. I am sorry that you have felt this. You know you can report harassment by flagging posts or reporting the member from their profile page.
