Battered
« on: April 16, 2020, 02:45:51 AM »
Hi guys,

I've just had a really nasty message from someone I used to spend a lot of time with - a message through a mutual acquaintance in fact. We all have cptsd.

While I don't particularly feel like I've lost a friend (the friendship deteriorated over the last few months before we stopped speaking anyway), I feel battered by her negativity and personal attacks.

At first, I just felt a bit numb. Then I felt angry. Then pretty sad. And now just numb about it all again. I've blocked her and said mutual acquaintance, so it's unlikely to happen again.

Just reaching out for a bit of moral support or something.

LittleBlueBird, I'm stumped for a response! It just floors me that your "friends" would act this way towards someone they know is suffering with a shared condition.

You were right to block them and focus on your own path moving forward. They can stay stuck in their dysfunction if they choose to. But it's still very sad.
