I didn't want to cause any unrest on the forum, I just wanted to check if it was me being sensitive. But it certainly feels like favouritism to me. Oh well. xxxx

I suppose we are our own worst enemies really, the understanding we long for is absent as it is sought from others who suffer our afflictions as well.

Like setting up a paranoia convention, and no one would show due to, you guessed it paranoia.

I don't know. I'm just feeling really rough at the moment. Contemplating giving up Art for English Language too. Maybe it's just the way I'm feeling. I don't know. I certainly don't want to cause an argument. xxxx

I agree. That line is trotted out knee jerk fashion any time someone brings up the issue of relative paucity of responses compared to others and it gets a bit dismissive and offensive after a while.

I said I couldn't think of anything useful to say, not that I couldn't think of anything at all. I often.choose not to reply with the *hugs* as people are looking for something more substantial and I can't offer it and am worried that by me posting *hugs* other members may see this as dismissive. If people don't get any replies and all I can think of is hugs, I will post it if it looks like no one else is going to reply.
But you're right, I choose not to reply to certain members as I feel I will be condemned for doing so. If certain members choose to alienate others, they can't then complain that they get few replies from those members..... In my opinion.

If you're talking about me condemning people for replying, then you're completely wrong. And if you are talking about me, I don't alienate people. I replied to your post the other day and got completely ignored.

I wasn't responding to you sorry, I know its your thread and sorry it looks like I was responding to your comments I access this site by my mobile and can't use the quote function.
I read the responses on threads I make from everyone and do appreciate all of them. I'm sorry you felt ignored.

I also apologise, I didn't mean for that to come off as harsh as it did. Plus I forgot to put my usual 'xxxx's on it :?

I'm under a fair bit of stress at the moment and taking everything personally. Like today it felt like EVERYONE was staring at me on my way home from college. It made me so paranoid.

Is paranoia a usual thing for you or is this new?

It hasn't been a usual thing for a while, well, not as severe as it was/is today, I've had it permanently just on a lesser degree recently so it's not been as noticeable. But today it was awful. xxxx
