Obsessing over verbal attack on here

#CheckInWithMe #Intolerance #Ableism #Unknown so I had to abort trying to fall asleep in order to email my therapist about scary memories that were triggered by this great book on how messed up society's perspective on grief and loss is. While I was doing that, I got a notification from this app that I had new responses to stuff I'd posted. The very last response it mentioned (and of course, it only gives you so much of the comment, not necessarily all of it) seemed to be pretty nasty. Accusing me of always going off on a rant and never liking anyone's stuff or having anything good to say, and of having "bad humor". Then part of a sentence. When I logged on to see what this person's problem was, so I could figure out how to respond, my tablet wouldn't load the post, no matter what I did, much less the comment. I went to my laptop. It briefly loaded the comment before erasing it. I read enough to see this person was being ignorant and intolerant (again. As I've seen them do on at least one other person's posts), but not enough to tell whether they actually had anything meaningful to say, or whether they were just being narrow minded and arrogant in their belief that essentially 'the world is flat', to use a metaphor.

Nothing I do brings the comment back, and sometimex the post says the response doesn't exist. I'm hoping the moderators caught it, or someone else reported it before I was able to, but I don't know that. And knowing there was an attack against me (I'm pretty sure that's what it was now, though at first I didn't have enough information to make a determination), but not knowing what it said, is driving me a little batty! Even knowing they were being rude and woefully inaccurate (the number of positive responses from other people proves that, to start. Never mind the majority of my posts lately have been about good things in my life!), I still find myself obsessing a little. 🙄.

Anyways, thought I'd post about it, and see if I could get confirmation (or otherwise) about whether it was deleted as inappropriate or something gefore I got to it, or if others can see it and I can't because of some technical glitch. (Computers certainly have enough of those! 😂)


Is it self harm to eat things that will make you sick or is it just being stubborn that you can no longer eat the foods you used to enjoy? #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS #Intolerance ? #Depression

I’m finding myself bing eating or trying to reward myself for getting out of bed from depressive episodes with foods I love or crave. These food sometimes give me horrible GI issues which has made my doctors and myself wonder if I am lactose intolerant and/or gluten intolerant. I can’t go to Burgerville and get the milkshake and cheeseburger meals that I crave when I am down in depression because after I stress eat or bing eat I have big GI issues/ consequences later
