I've posted previous threads in the forms of poems to express my illness and how it affects me, recently I got a reply to one such poem when I was at a low ebb and badly affected, the person said " good story " I cannot express how angry and upset I was by this reply ??
I am not doing this as fiction okay!!
This is the truth about my illness and my constant battle not to be destroyed by it,
So to mister " good story" hope you never suffer as I do ???

some people can be so ignorant and insensitive. however sometimes people react to posts in an inappropriate way, due to their illness. try not to take it too hard.

I don't know which thread you're referring to. But,.. could it be a possibility that this person did actually think that it was a fictional story/poem and were actually paying you a compliment ? :unsure:

Just a thought.

Define ....

I think you may have taken the staitment wrongly...
.. this is the first defiition I found for the word .....

Story
a narrative, either true or fictitious, in prose or verse, designed to interest, amuse, or instruct the hearer or reader; tale.


A story can be a description of true events ..

.. I have many story's .. all true ... but I cannot help what people "choose" to belive .. none of us can ...

I dont know what post you are refering to .. but I would say to try and give that person the benifit of the dowt ..

Take care ... boB ... :flowers:
