I post messages on a public message board. I sometimes have a hard time expressing my words in the best possible way, and because of that, some people think that I'm heartless and cruel. I'm not heartless and cruel but do admit that I don't always say things in the best way. I try to explain and reason with them, but instead of accepting me as who I am, they bash me and call me names. They want me to not respond to them or on threads that they've started. I've tried to tell them it's a public board and I should be able to respond to any post I wish. They won't filter me. Instead, they come back at me with nasty words and name calling. I keep trying to reason with them, but sometimes I get fed up and come back with a more assertive post. Not being nasty toward them, but being more assertive and let them know that I'm fed up with the nasty things they say about me. They call me passive/aggressive in my posts. I do have a problem with telling them that I'm done responding to thier nastiness and then a few posts later, there I am responding to them again. Then they call me a liar. I've looked up the symptoms of this disorder and the only thing I see is that I prosrastinate a lot. Otherwise the other symptoms I don't think pertain to me. I do have clinical depression for which I'm on medication for and I also sometimes have some slight memory loss. I don't hold grudges toward people, but they sure do, with me. Even when I've tried to explain that my words don't always come out right, that I didn't mean to hurt them on purpose, they still can't seem to forget and forgive and move on. Every single time I respond to them, they call me names and say that I'm passive/aggressive in my posts. Can you please tell me if this is a sign of passive/aggressive disorder? Thank you.
It's impossible to diagnose a psychiatric disorder without actally meeting with a doctor. The obvious question here is: Why do you want to return to a circle of people who have made it clear you are not welcome?
