Got into a silly argument on another thread, and got far too upset about it. I can only blame myself, because words on a screen should not upset someone as much, so I'm going to go before I go mad...

Just want to say...
MUMSNET, THANK YOU.

For your support when I MCd less than a month ago. You helped me feel I wasn't alone.
For the MNers on the diet thread who said I was edging towards anorexia and that I needed to sort myself out. I did!
For MNHQ for replying to Katie Hopkins as they did. grin
And to all the kind and supportive MNers who can disagree without it turning into a slanging match.

I don't know what thread you are on about, and perhaps you could do with a break, but please don't feel you should leave if you have been lambasted by the rude and vocal minority.

It sounds as if mumsnet has been really helpful to you, it would be agreat shame indeed if an avenue of support has been cut off to you.

I am sorry you are upset - perhaps have a break and come back in a day or so. Words on a screen maybe, but they can hurt.

Thanks GetOrf , I know in my heart I am being far too sensitive so I'm going to go. I'll come back when if I feel a gaping hole. smile

Have a mini-break. Delete the thread you got into an argument on. Then come back and join in on the daft threads. x

Nothing wrong with a name change and lurking for a while till you feel ready to join in again...

I've had this a few times I just hide the thread and back off.

I've seen you on lots of threads recently, why don't you lurk and come back with a name change? Some mn'ers love a fight and wade in because they have rhino skin and nothing better to do. If you've been getting good advice stick with it, just don't post.

I've lurked for years and have only posted more recently, but have still had to defend myself robustly on f/ wr threads as I've not agreed with some political point. Try not to take it personally, then hide the thread (alternately a little book of the names and a pin dolly could help!)

Hope you're back smile

Sorry you feel like this but I understand where you're coming from. Some posters will just not let go with rtheir pick, pick, pickiness and it can get under your skin.
