    I know it's nice to be thought of as a "valued and respected" member of a forum, but in the grand scheme of things - not all that important. I've fallen off that perch myself from time to time. But as long as I feel I'm doing the right thing - I don't think it matters too much whether others support what I write or attack it. And if I feel I've stuffed up - I'm happy to say so. The main thing is not to respond to attacks that are over the top or plain abusive. It takes two to have a fight. Don't be the second person.

    I won't. I will just report the abuse and continue with my day. I have never intended to suck up, must just be my dopey personality!

    But in all seriousness, you are right. I will not involve myself, and allow the Admin to take care of it. Thanks

    much better.

    Actually I am quite pleased that you pick and choose from the advice I (we) have offered. I'm not always right. I found it a little bit frustrating to see you responding today - because that just "feeds the troll" - and I don't mean you. Not that AF qualifies as an internet troll either but I hope you get what I'm trying to say.

    I only post when I think it is appropriate. I try to ignore the most vicious stuff, but occasionally I am going to say leave it to PM.
    Because she has disabled PM and such I really don't appreciate this on the forums. It's her choice whether to PM me or not, but I am giving her an 'out' so to speak. If she keeps it to PM's then she's not disrupting the rest of the boards. As I learned the hard way, things get nasty quickly if we air our dirty laundry in public.
    That being said, we will no longer discuss this publicly. I just needed some comfort and now that I have it, we can respect Floyd's privacy by moving on.

    Thanks Hyacinth

    Hi DGP

    I suspect she doesn't see any point in PM'ing you for reasons you've mentioned previously.

    I'd still ignore the name calling posts, I don't see any point in trying to deflect or defend yourself against those, and ignoring them will help discourage them, but it's your choice.

    I am a bit bewildered as to what her problem is, but what you've said makes sense. I'll go the good old keep your mouth shut road.

    I feel for Floyd's sake and the forums sake (we do not need more arguments) we should finish this conversation now.

    Hey guys Just read through the last page and I hope your feeling much better Dis

    I had a bit of a fight with my mum too. She is peed off at me because I am underweight and I hate eating food. I know I am un-healthy and I know I am too skinny for my age, especially with my sudden growth-spurts, but I cant help that food tastes icky and bitter...

    Grr. Anyway thats my rant LOL

    Hi Demi

    Have you seen any of the "eataholics" shows on the ABC (2) digital I think but sometimes on ABC1. Most of them get stuck on one food and won't eat healthy either.

    The only way round it seems to be to keep trying to eat the other stuff and force yourself. And a little bit of therapy seems to go in the mix. A few of them have had some sort of trauma that set them on the path of gagging on spinach and other veg etc.

    I love food - well not all food but most food. Icky and bitter? How can you say that about chocolate. Well actually I like the bitter chocolate best. And potatos aren't bitter? What about cheese? There's all sorts there.

    Some foods are an "acquired taste" and you just have to try a little bit every day until you get used to it and "acquire" the taste.

    Thats why mum got up me LOL, she saw a documentry on a woman who survived on cheese and pizza :/ I survive on... chocolate and vegemite.. lol

    I guess I should have said "Most foods" or better "Healthy foods" taste bitter and yuck.
    I buy myself chocolate and that is my main source of energy.
    Mum is kicking in a 'health-food' thing. I get chocolate only *1* time a week.
    When I eat healthy food, I feel drained, feel cold and dizzy...

    I swear my taste-buds hate me > lol.

    Night, Hyacinth!
