Thank you so much for taking the time to put a post out for me.
I totally understand what you mean, i definitely feel sensitive and over react to certain things, and get paranoid and worry about upsetting or offending anyone.
However, i truly dont think i have over reacted about the person that i feel has let me down on here. This person is not bipolar themselves but has a family member who is and is someone i have offered a lot of support and advice to. Then i said something i feel they didnt like, and since then they have ignored any responses i have posted to them offering support, which i just think is very rude.I have met some fantastic people on here,who have offered me a lot of support, and i, in turn, like to offer to support to whoever i can on this board. Sometimes it is hard to muster up the motivation to do this, particularly when you feel very low yourself. But i always try my best, and this person was no exception. I actually poured my heart out to them and gave them a lot of reassurance about their situation, from a bipolar person's point of view. A lot of that was very painful for me, and now i feel like thats been thrown back in my face. I actually thought about leaving the board over this, that may sound silly but i was that upset.
I decided not to leave as i know i have met some wonderful, genuine people on here, yourself included. And i like to come on here and check on how everyone is doing. I can honestly say that is the only reason i come on here now, as i have lost a lot of faith in this board recently. Like i said in my other post, there seems to be more people slating family members of theirs with bipolar on here than anyone actually trying to gain insight and understanding or offer support. And surely thats what this board should actually be about.
I think you're a wonderfully strong and caring person. And i can honestly say that i have never read anything that you have written that has been even mildly offensive, so i really dont think you have ever upset anyone on here. But like you said, its easy to feel very sensitive and worry.
Thank you for being there Kiehn
