I too have a problem with people who persist in triggering behaviour after I have asked them to stop. I either try to ignore them or end up arguing with them...but I end up feeling hurt when I resort to arguing....don't know how to deal with them effectively.

Hi Desiree, sorry to hear how you are feeling. I too have this problem.

The advice I have been given, in the past, is too be assertive. It is just not the easy when my brain is so much slower than the people who throw abuse at you.

Would be great if we could all try and put some sentences together, see if any of them will work.

I will try one to start..... I find it helpful when people speak to me in a kinder and loving way.

Iím glad speaking up has helped you feel better. Most of the abusers in my life simply ignore me and continue with the abusive behaviour if I speak up

I think thatís the mark of an abuser. They continue despite a clear request to stop. . I wish Iíd known that years ago, I might not be so ****ed up and wishing I was dead sorry about the triggering post. Itís been a horrible day.

I have some off the bus talk---------5 days ago I lowered my celexa from 5mg to 2.5mg..at the same time I started taking magnesium every day...so far I am feeling better...there will probably come a time when I get real scared....but I am going to try
to deal with it without going back to my usual 5 mg...
