So, I like to post answers up on Quora, trying to explain that there is far more to mental health than medications and chemical imbalances.
As you might expect, not everyone likes to hear this stuff, and I sometimes get some pretty scathing comments to some of my answers. That's par for the course, and it comes with the territory.
But occasionally, the person commenting is just so vituperative and emotionally abusive that it literally takes my breath away. People usually launch into hyper-critical personal attacks when they haven't got anything much else to argue about, but still don't want to admit that *gasp*, they might be wrong about something.
You can take a look at a prime example of emotional abuse in action HERE in the comments section, and God willing, next week I'm going to stick up a post or two about how to spot and deal with online bullies, because whatever the subject being discussed, they always follow the same basic pattern of avoiding the facts and launching straight into abusive personal attacks to try and scare you into submission.
(If you can really say such a thing about this stuff...)
