Day 25

Describe a time someone treated you poorly 

Sadly when you run a support group sometimes you will come across people who like you and then suddenly don’t.

That’s ok as we all have the right to like or dislike anyone. 
I don’t understand nor will I ever understand how someone can just go off on someone that not only started the support group, but also has done as much as humanly possible to make people feel welcome. 

But it happened to me 3 x in the course of 2 years.
At first I was kind of devastated and I was was very sad over it. 

I will always defend myself

And I will always protect my group members from also having to go through that. 
When you see people lying about you and saying hateful things you learn to defend yourself and then you ask them to stop or you will remove them from the group. 

And they get shocked and pissed off when you remove them as if they have no clue why. 
We all know living with chronic pain is no fun and many times we need to vent which is fine. 

But to bully someone and disrespect another also suffering is unacceptable period. 

It just seems that even though people have pain  they sure can become a little short or irritated , so that’s always overlooked. 

It’s when people actually become hateful and so disruptive that you just cannot overlook it, or when they create multiple accounts with various names and  look to nit pic with others   

That’s when I have to put a hold on things and think about how I want to handle it. 

It’s never easy removing a member but it’s also not fair to others or myself to tolerate daily ridicule and hateful words. 

Especially when I have had group rules in place for 2 years.

I’ve learned now not to get to upset about it. 

As you can’t please everyone all the time.
