<div> I should have realized sooner that it wasn't safe. VOX groups just aren't safe as support groups.
First I found that all of my posts were making it to Google searches. I have no desire to air my dirty laundry to the world at large.
Then I found some self-proclaimed "health expert" bombing every health-related group perceivable with a post, and some "amateur bodybuilder personal trainer" smack-talking in it about the obesity "epidemic" as if the only problem there was that people were too gluttonous about food. The expert defends that asshole, so… yeah, I did tear both of them new assholes. Sheer gall, because the expert also started ranting about America overmedicating and how we needed to do alternative stuff instead… goddamn, what a prick… how can anyone logically imply we should ditch our proper treatment because "experts" imply that pharmaceutical companies are now The Man, oppressing us into medicated oblivion? Gimme a fucking break.
Hey, free speech is one thing, but to muscle into a group with no shred of evidence that one is trained in mental health matters and then start preaching, they have no right to censure me when I say it's offensive.
They can squat on a pike if they don't like it. Only problem is– now I have to ignore their retort, because as tempting as a flame war would be… just not worth my time. Sure, I dug my grave, now I have to lie in it… yeah yeah yeah, but I'm not that sorry.
