I’ve had my share of trolls. I am a very raw and honest person, so this tends to attract people who wish to cause trouble, Not everyone likes to hear the truth.
I’ve been called lots of things, had accusations thrown at me, in my time on social media. I’m so used to it.
But, there are some accusations made, that really make me think, wow – this person is really unwell and needs help.
Today, I have been accused of being someone who is ‘deliberately trying to get people dependent on medications and make money out of people.’
I am the least pushy and the least judgmental person I know about meds.
My motto is, if you need them – that is okay and don’t feel ashamed of that. If you don’t want to take them, that is okay too. But, don’t tell people either way what they should do, or shame people for needing them.
This person is anti-medications. So believes strongly anyone who takes them, is wrong. And the fact that I take them and talk about and I’m an admin of a page, means I am deliberately trying to make everyone else dependent on them.
Which is bizarre thinking.
As for making money – I do everything I do for free. I get no money for doing what I do every day.
She also claimed that because we don’t ‘have a bond’ – that this automatically makes me a fraud in her mind. Interestingly, I have many regulars who have known me for a lot longer, who see me and what I do, completely differently.
These types of accusations and thoughts, are from a very unwell mind, with either considerable paranoia, or in a delusional, psychotic type state.
I also had threats after that, of reporting me to lots of people and putting me ‘high alert’. Definitely paranoia.
The other community members reactions to this were to confirm how totally bizarre this all is. It is bizarre, because it is not a ‘reality’ state of mind this comes from.
It’s very sad. I hope this person gets help.
I haven’t taken it personally, because it is so clear the person, is very unwell.
