Hi folks, we were up to 995 posts, so I thought I'd better start a new thread

QueenofWhispers Thu 16-May-13 17:39:13

OMG you guys, WHAT happened? I was away for a bit because all of this talk was getting upsetting and all this MN action. What is happening?

RebeccaMumsnet England (MNHQ) Thu 16-May-13 16:24:23

Hi all,

We have re-opened this thread now and mailed those involved.

Please do keep personal disputes off of the main Talk boards.

Many thanks for the reports.

I am judging

And you aren't doing too well tbh

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 15-May-13 23:09:24

Hi again

We're going to suspend this thread now while we take a proper look at the situation. We'd be very grateful if all posters could refrain from taking this to another thread!

Thanks
MNHQ

Kormachameleon, obviously I did try that first. Judge away, but I know what the other person is really like.

LeonieDelt Wed 15-May-13 23:01:45

thank you hq xxx

LeonieDelt Wed 15-May-13 23:01:22

I have asked hq to remove my posts on this thread about this person. hopefully that will stop it all and it'll die down? sad

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 15-May-13 23:01:10

Hello

Thanks for all the reports about this thread.

As ever, we really don't think Mumsnet is the right place to play out real-life disputes between posters on the boards, and we will remove posts that seem to be doing this.

Thanks
MNHQ

There are ways of asking
For example " please stop discussing x y z, lets agree to part company and move on "

Then there are threats eg - ill make you sorry for that.
Where do you think you fall between these two statements ?

And quite frankly joining a web site to cyber stalk someone is just freaky

Get a life, move on, focus on something else

Leonie, call 101 to ask for advice. They are becoming more and more used to cyber bullying and can advise what to do - and it will make sure it's all properly documented.

LeonieDelt Wed 15-May-13 21:59:09

I have warned HQ to expect some craziness, after the threats I just got. HQ says they will help out. God bless em.

LeonieDelt Wed 15-May-13 21:50:34

crap, it wont let me, says 48 hours have to pass first? wtf?

Badvoc Wed 15-May-13 21:44:15

You need to report it to Facebook and then call 101 and ask them for advice.

LeonieDelt Wed 15-May-13 21:38:57

obviously have blocked said person, but i'm getting very, very creeped out!

LeonieDelt Wed 15-May-13 21:37:00

Okay, what do you do when you're being threatened on facebook?

LeonieDelt Wed 15-May-13 19:50:29

oooh, bright idea. i'll tell him. his phone is really good in the dark!

moosemama Wed 15-May-13 19:44:17

Can you get him to grab his mobile and video it next time it happens Leonie? My neuro actuall asked if dh could do that, as he said video really helps identify types of seizures etc.

LeonieDelt Wed 15-May-13 19:33:10

my husband described an earthquake in bed last night (and no, it wasnt sex) around 2.30am. He said i was shaking all over. He also said it wasnt the first time it has happened (!!) but he thought he imagined it the first time.

i may ask him to write it down, actually. Details. I need to know what he heard, saw, and length of time. He doesn't communicate well at the best of times :/

He said he didnt think it was grand mal / tonic clonic but that the chewing ones can generalise (he googled it on his phone as he was telling me)... which of course i know that...

and then he says that if its getting worse, the children's safety is his first concern (gee, thanks!!!!!!! and i'm chopped liver? lmao)

i guess this is my cue to take my meds. I just wanted to try and wait til after 18 June cos that's my next thyroid blood test, and i only wanted one variable at a time.. and cos topiramate is really awful stuff...

moosemama Wed 15-May-13 19:05:24

Cocodamol makes me tired, but I can work through it and keep going if I have to - Naproxen really knocks me out.

Have you any topical gels or anything Couthy? My mum has feldene gel and she says, although it doesn't get rid of the pain, it definitely eases it and makes it more bearable. She has both RA, Osteoarthritis and hypermobility.

CouthyMow Wed 15-May-13 18:51:18

I'm going to wrap myself in heat pads I think!! grin

CouthyMow Wed 15-May-13 18:50:47

Co-codamol does it too, though. I tend to get by on ibuprofen if I'm desperate during the day. At least that doesn't turn me into a space cadet.

Wish it was safe for me to sit in a nice warm bath, it would ease my joints so much.

A shower with a mixer tap shower head (SOOOOO not a proper shower...) just doesn't have the sane effect...sad

LeonieDelt Wed 15-May-13 18:46:10

Naproxen is ananti-inflam - all it does for me is eat my stomach up! Isnt it odd how we're all so different!

I am just as entitled as anyone else is, IMHO. SAHM and carer, but still performing a valuable job! x

moosemama Wed 15-May-13 18:42:37

Couthy, Naproxen does that to me as well. I only take it after trying a full dose of co-codamol even for the worst pain and then only if I can sleep it off.

Don't you let her make you think you have to be in work to be valuable and worthy of using resources. The Government clearly doesn't agree and how many British women stay at home while their dh goes out to work - regardless of having dcs? Should they not be entitled to NHS care as well? confused angry Tis just vile, UKIP style racist bile and not worth a second of your - or anyone else's attention.

By her reasoning, I shouldn't be allowed to access the NHS because I am a SAHM, despite having worked and paid in for years before I ever had children. She would make that judgement knowing nothing about my dh and how much tax he pays etc.

Come to that, I'm pretty damned sure none of my dcs have ever worked a day in their lives - yet here they are using essential services as if they were entitled to or summat! shock

Def UKIP thinking, if not just a heartbeat away from BNP. hmm
