i have a wonderful family too, and on the outside aside from the MS, everything is great, BUT we’re all human and sometimes just want someone to listen to us when we sound off. not comment, judge, or guide but just listen (or read, to be more accurately).
to the people who are quizzing you regarding the cognitive dissonance of commenting that you want to be left alone, please remember that no one is the arbiter of anyone elses feelings/ thoughts/ statements etc. unless they cause offence. if they do cause offence, we have administrators who are present to moderate such comments and anyone is welcome to report such posts to them. However someone posting that they ‘want to be left alone’ is not an offensive thing to say. the bottom line is pops, that we are all here to state how we feel, support each other, make each other think, etc. SO anyone who is so easily offended by your understandable statement had best stay away as to not be offended in the future.
basically- if they don’t like it, they can lump it*. you carry on and state how you feel mate as there are many more people who want to listen and help if they can
take care, fluffyollie
*i want to use stronger terms here but they WILL offend hehe!
