Well, not so much a vent as an expression of disappointment.
Six weeks or so ago, I reached out and befriended someone who came to me asking advice about anxiety. I thought she was a good person, and welcomed her into my life accordingly. But in the past two weeks she’s shown her true colours. She picked at everything I said to her, and it became clear that she is only interested in having someone to put down, to make herself feel better. So I cut her loose. Now I have my second head case stalker in six months. A flood of private messages through another forum. Email stacked up in my junk mail folder. Love Entourage’s junk mail handling, by the way. A flood of abusive and insulting SMS. Attempts at prank phone calls. Thank heavens she only has one cell phone number, not my home or work numbers, so I can switch off to that as well.
Not entirely faithful in humanity right now. This is what I got for caring. All I can say is, I am so glad I didn’t get romantically involved. I’d probably have rabbits’ heads on pickets outside my bedroom window by now if I had.
