Did I Join The Wrong Site For Support? The First Page I Saw Was A Member Calling Another Member Rude!

Did I Join The Wrong Site For Support? The First Page I Saw Was A Member Calling Another Member Rude!

After being away for a few days, my first notification takes me to a page where a member was calling another member rude for her comment. The question referred to what 'we the members don't like to hear'. The member answered what she doesn't like to hear others say to her....the following comments are calling that member rude for saying that in her comment. To be called out in a public forum and called by name to be rude is not what I joined this site to see. Remove the comment or better… read more

I am "THAT" woman, and you are misjudging me just as I misjudged the woman I called rude. I was reading the comments & had forgotten the "question" which I think was "What Advice do You Wish People Would Stop Giving You"? A lady had written that her cousin who has MS had turned the holiday dinner into a MS vs FIBRO competition, which she soon dropped out of. Her cousin then commenced to playfully hit her arms & legs all afternoon & she was so sore when she got home.

The next commenter wrote: Stop Whining. This too shall pass. I hear it all the time.

The lady w the MS cousin had replied: Is this about me? I'm sorry, I didn't mean to whine etc etc

Which is when I came in w my comments because like YOU, I thought it was a support group. But also, I am used to people thinking nothing is wrong with me because I look fine. I felt TERRIBLE when I realized she was just quoting comments she received all the time. Like us, she hurts.
I am not THAT woman! I am a woman who has Fibro & Chronic Fatigue, who is new to this site. I mistakenly thought someone was being belittled and stood up for them. Even so I could have been nicer about it.
Sincerely
Dannette
