  •  Oh, I was just having a bit of fun (3+ / 0-)

    because both sides of the roxxers/suxxors war have accused the other of bullying. This was a nice arena for us to all come together to help out a community member.

    Besides, it really did feel like bullying. Last night, in the heat of everything, I sent BB a kosmail calling her an asshole and yelling at her at the top of my lungs. (Well, you know what I mean. :P) Of course, I apologized for it this morning, but I did that because I felt like I needed to do that to get her attention.

    I also saw lots of other folks yelling at her (typing in caps), probably for the same reason.

    If I turn into another, dig me up from under what is covering the better part of me. -- Incubus

    •  It did feel like bullying last night (7+ / 0-)

      And I'd be a liar if I said I wasn't angry about the whole ordeal. My mom hollered at me this morning for being mean to my gf about it.

      I apologized to gf this morning, and she said, and I quote, "I didn't give a fuck! Be mad all you want, I'm still going to take care of your stubborn ass!"

      Of course, the fact that I was getting angry was another red flag to her. It's just not my style to roll like that. It's really, really hard to make me angry most days, and I would never say something mean to her, especially.

      I still haven't looked at the texts from last night, though. I don't know what I said to her. I'm still kind of sick over the comments I "typed." I don't think I want to see what I texted.

      It wasn't bullying, but yes, if I'm being honest, I felt really ganged up on last night. Probably not a good way for an extremely stubborn person in a crisis situation to feel, but today I'm endlessly thankful for all of you bullies.

      P.S. I am not a crackpot.

      •  I'm sure it had to have been (4+ / 0-)

        terrifying for you. The lengths you went to to not receive help were a huge red flag to me, yes, which is why I yelled, and I'm sure that was the reason other people yelled as well.

        It was so out of character for you. You were just not yourself.

        Please don't look at the comments right now if they're just going to make you upset or make you feel bad.

        I am sorry we had to bully you, hon, and I'm sorry you felt ganged up on. Thing is, it was all done out of love and I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I felt like I needed to.

        I'm just glad you're doing OK today, and anxious to hear how the follow-ups with your docs go.

        Please keep us posted!

        •  No hard feelings at all (3+ / 0-)

          Quite the opposite, actually. That's just how I felt last night.

          There was no other way for you all to react, now that I'm looking at it with clear eyes. If it was you or any other number of people here doing the same thing, I would have been screaming at the top my lungs. Or typing in all caps. :)

          •  It might not hurt to just delete those texts (3+ / 0-)

            instead of agonizing over them.  The outcome is what's important in my view.

            •  I've exchanged enough texts with both gf and TF (3+ / 0-)

              that they won't be on my screen when I pull up either exchange.

              Gf said she will think they're hilarious in a few months and I might too. I'll take her word for it. I know I said something mean to her last night but I don't want to know what it was. I know it was enough to piss off my mother, who gave me a huge what-for this morning after making sure I was okay.

              But, yeah, I don't think I'll read them. Morbid curiosity makes me want to but I know myself well enough to know that when THAT is what's pulling me to something, I'll be haunted if I give in.

              P.S. I am not a crackpot.
