Blocked, But Why?

June 2015 I wrote this post. I no longer notice when or if I’m blocked or unfriended on social media. Perhaps I no longer inundate others with content (perhaps I still do, it’s subjective). As I’m not as active online and as my focus is not just on my self, I’ve gained some new readers and lost others.

Yesterday I found that someone blocked me on Twitter, and I didn’t know why. It hurt and reminded me of someone else blocking me on Twitter and of yet another person who unfriended me on Facebook and actually informed me that she had done so (why, I have no idea, she didn’t say). The bottom line is: My feelings are hurt. I wonder what I did wrong. I wonder if I did something to injure the other person. I know I post A LOT. Profuse posting can overwhelm others, burying them under a barrage of tweets, posts, and links to follow. I am bipolar after all, so my hypomanic activity is partly symptomatic. I’m passionate, as well, and feel compelled to share great content over social media. In addition, I realize that medication and psychotherapy has helped me, so that someone medication-resistant may not find me a helpful support. Still, it hurts.

  1. Thanks. But, I bet that’s not actually the reason. I may have offended someone with my liberal views or may have just posted too much and overwhelmed them with content. You never know.

  2. You know kitt, these people who’ve blocked you, don’t have much intellect and you are probs a threat to them. Take inspiration from the genius bipolars before you who had few friends due to misunderstanding .

  3. Thank you for reblogging, Deb!

  4. Sounds like enough to me! I spend WAY too much time on social media and not enough time writing.

  5. Best to let go.

  6. Reblogged this on Shared Reality.

  7. Thanks for the tip, I’ve gone those routes, but think I’ll just stick to my WP as I have two blogs that I write for now. Take care. Deb 🙂

  8. Sorry it happened to you too, cherished79. I have wondered if it was due to my bipolar, but it’s just so hard to know. In the end I don’t think it was a healthy friendship anyway, so…

  9. I believe this happens with everyone. For those of us with bipolar disorder, we wonder if it was due to our behavior or to our illness. Sometimes, perhaps it does. Sometimes, it does not. Not all friendships live on.

  10. I read your post and that brought back memories with a friend also. She just stopped all contact with me; did I piss her off? Was I too much of a burden when I was ill? I don’t know what I did. But then I remembered, while we were friends, she did that to another friend of hers; just cut her off, so perhaps I didn’t do anything, it was her with the problem. That was two years ago and have never talked to her since.

    Sorry you had to go through that with your friends, it still hurts.

  11. As long as you know what you have written and what you intended to express is really the main purpose. Someone on my blog blasted me for not knowing enough info on a subject and shouldn’t post unless I was more informed, however, I was simply just posting an article not written by me. If the person had read it carefully he would have known that it was not written by me, and the purpose of my blog is to educate which would include outside articles.

    Too quick to judge, yet not important enough to have me stew over it.

  12. I’m new to Twitter and unsure if it’s a plus for my blog or a waste of time? How do you find it? I started my blog 8 years ago without ‘reader’, ‘likes’, ‘twitter’, and had more viewers than I have now. Mind you, there were a lot less bloggers. Makes you wonder?

  13. I’ve experienced the same thing on Twitter where I tweeted someone else’s post and the title was the opposite of the message (and that was the whole point), but someone responded angrily without reading the post. Both the author and I had to reassure the person responding that we completely agreed with her and that that was what the post said.

    As writers, though, not everyone is going to like or agree with what we write. As humans, not everyone is going to like us. Still, yes, it hurts. Thank you.

  14. I know how you feel, I received hurtful comments on a twitter post. Perhaps the title of my post on WP could have used better wording, the comments were nasty, appears they didn’t even look at my blog and just passed judgement. I actually googled “when someone criticizes your writing”,and most of the replies were: “Not everyone is going to like what you post or write and there’s not much you can do about it, and that was a comment from an author who was recognized in the New York Times. Some said his book was ‘complete trash, and how did he ever become a published author”, another said his book was only worth .99 cents.

    Still it’s hard to be blocked and unfollowed. Great post.

  15. Yes. Without a doubt. Letting go is an important skill, an exercise in self love.

  16. I also think letting go is the best thing to do whenever being unfriended. It hurts but after all, maybe you should not care too much about people who don’t wish to stay your friend.

  17. Yeah it hurts but after that, I typical realize it’s for the better.. If they can’t handle it that’s on them not you and ultimately it’s their choice. Regardless of the hurt..I say you’re better off. 🙂

  18. sensitive to rejection? i’ve heard about people like that. that must be though.

    (btw, it’s a family tradition to take a trait that i have, make it sound like other people surely must struggle with that trait, and also imply that i surely don’t struggle with that trait.)

  19. Exactly. Honestly, it may have been something they needed to do. It doesn’t really bother me that much now. But, I did feel a twinge at the time. Sensitive to rejection. Reminds me of a closed door or two in real life. Friends lost.

  20. kitt,

    it always suck wen someone “leaves” you. who said it your fault? there is a saying in recovery, something that someone says or does is nor a reflection on what you say or did, but a reflection on where they are.

    nice words that i even remember to apply sometimes.

  21. Thank you. Your family member is blessed to have you, blessed to have a relative caring enough to learn more about bipolar disorder. offers wonderful support and information for family members of those with mental illness. i highly recommend the organization and their website. They have local affiliates across the US.

  22. I have a close family member with a recent bipolar diagnosis; and, I appreciate the helpful information you have shared. While some may have a problem, there are people like me, the uninformed, who benefit from what you post. Thank you.

  23. Don’t worry about grammar or verb conjugation. I understood.

  24. I can’t even imagine why anyone would unfriend or unfollow you, Indah. Your photography is absolutely breathtaking.

  25. Sorry about my English on “I was unfriend and unfollow in some social media.” – I meant I had similar situation when certain people were unfriend and unfollow me…

  26. I am sorry to hear this Kitt. It is indeed hurts when someone block or unfriend or unfollow us. That’s the downside of social media, I guess. The rejections become too transparent. I was unfriend and unfollow in some social media. Don’t be sad, you still have many who care about you 🙂

  27. Good that you are able to put it into perspective, realize that it is not you, and not take it personally. You are an inspiration.

  28. For those of us using rather than, we cannot add outside plug-ins.

  29. Thank you, Diane. So sorry that the unfriending by your niece hurt you. You are a very loving individual. God bless you.

  30. I agree with you wholeheartedly. Thanks!

  31. I agree with you, Ann. We should stand together in mutual support and solidarity.

  32. That’s what I use Twitter for, too. Some people use Twitter to chat. I don’t so much.

  33. Look forward to the UCLA doctors on your radio program.

  34. Yes. Personally, I do not consider sharing links spam. That’s what the share buttons are for.

  35. No worries!! I am unfortunately use to people cutting me out of their lives due to other peoples behavior. If it my behavior I understand but if it is other peoples behaviors then it deeply hurts because we have no control over other people.

  36. joelsax47 Avatar

    I’ve done more research. There are several programs that let you ban unwanted traffic to your site. The most highly rated appears to be WP-Ban. Add it as a plug-in.

  37. My niece actually is an adult and we were always close. We still are to a degree but not so much as we were. I never asked her why she unfriended me, because I didn’t want to start something… but it definitely hurt…
    I think it strange that your friend felt the need to tell you, but not the reason… not too nice! If people find it too much information they should just adjust what they want and don’t want or unfriend you but no need to make you feel bad… That’s just rude and unkind.
    I can understand why you like to have a lot of contacts though,… Diane

  38. Unfortunately, people are using social media as a way to hurt others by unfriending and blocking. I personally leave it alone unless it’s for business. Kitt, if we are to support each other in this so-called recovery movement, social justice advocates then I don’t understand the language of ‘your too much’. People say that to me all the time. If you are a mental health advocate and a person in recovery you are the last person that should be telling another in the same boat ‘your too much’.

    Wow. I have learned so much reading these comments starting with learning not to take it personally when I get unfollowed. (Easier said than done). I also didn’t realized that posting links I believe contain useful knowledge could be construed as spam! I see far spammier behavior occurring everyday and it would never occur to me to unfollow and/or mute someone as that takes far too much energy. I also happen to believe the advocacy community is small, and while we don’t all have to agree with each other; each voice is important and we can all teach each other. It’s important to stand together and use our collective voices in support and solidarity.

  40. On Twitter most of what I share is links to things I find interesting, people don’t seem to see it as spam. I hope.

  41. Thanks for the RT!

  42. Thank you Kitt for your very kind words – I am planning to have a special section to discuss live topics related Bipolar and disorder topics. There is 2 doctors from UCLA have volunteered to do so. May God Bless you and let your live shine.

    I am sure you will have live interview on our network.. Cheers!

  43. I wish you and Akriti Mattu the best with your new venture. I am not ready to participate in an Internet radio program. I’m quite busy trying to sort out my son’s chronic health problems and maintain my own mental health. Thank you, though, for keeping me in mind.

    Wow. I’ve learned so much by reading these comments. Im going to stop taking my own unfollowing so personally for starters. And I had no idea that sharing links which I considered to be useful or helpful information is a form of spam. There is a lot more spammy behavior I see going on personally and I would never unfollow or mute over – life is too short to get that riled up! Honestly, the advocacy community is small and I think there is room for all our differing viewpoints, we can help each other grow and learn as individuals; and most importantly we should support each other. Peace! Xoxo

  45. My pleasure – FYI – I am finally in the last stages to launch my Radio Internet. Let me know how you can have a role and discuss more live about the topics. Here is the article:

    I very much appreciate when you comment as well. Thank you!

  46. Great post, Jim. Retweeted it.

  47. I have drastically reduced what I look at on Twitter these days, and you’re literally at the top of my follow list (in my fuzzbrain mind). For real. Lucy adds, “Fur real! Ruff ruff!”

  48. I will go check it out. Thanks, Jim.

  49. Yes. Mutual respect is important. I’ve noticed that some bloggers do not respond to comments. Thank you, Mihran, for your continued support.

  50. Thank you, Dy! Love you!

  51. This post, and the comments prompted me to finish a blog post I started last month, about being blocked in real life by a long time friend. Th post is at:

  52. Yes. You are right. Plus, I have blocked people as well, generally men who have made romantic overtures or porn (no thanks).

  53. I am disappointed and hurt – I participate, respect, comment and sometimes No one will even reply to me. I also found out in shock that one of the articles that was written by member of WP is linger exists and was deleted. It is not fair and right not to receive the respect to each other.

  54. First of all, I cannot believe that your niece unfriended you. Although, many young people post possibly embarrassing content intended for their peers and not their elders (you can imagine). So, I agree with you to not take it personally.

    As for notification of being blocked, FB & Twitter do not notify you. The woman who was a FB friend notified me (and Dyane) herself without giving us a reason she was unfriending us. I do not know why, but support people in doing what they think is best for their own wellbeing, even if that means unfriending me. On Twitter, I tried following someone only to find that I was blocked.

    I am fairly aggressive in seeking Twitter followers, quite frankly. If I’m ever to become a “published” author (and I’m still not sure that I care to do so, for there are so many memoirs out there already), having many followers is important.

    In the meantime, whether or not I ever publish anything beyond this blog, I do want to reach out with the many links I share. I like to believe that I’m doing a service, but not everyone else experiences my barrage of links on my FB page and on Twitter as helpful.

  55. I so agree with you about no cyber chatting with unknown men. In addition to it being outside the bounds of my commitment to Tom, it’s unbelievably dangerous.
    I’ve watched the growth of your presence on social media and have admiration for your commitment to furthering the knowledge about mental health and fighting stigma.
    Keep up the great work.

  56. I know that I’m “too much” for many people. You are not alone. We are not alone. Thank you.

  57. Yes, celebrate joy and triumph. Do not focus on rejection. So important in the work you do in sales. The wisdom does carry over into all areas of life.

  58. Yep. There is the numbers game going on.

  59. Joel, WordPress Reader won’t let me add your blog. How can I subscribe to updates?

  60. I just quickly scan your posts and it’s easy for me to do, even with my med side effects of being groggy; others may not have this ability. I never thought even once that your tweets could be considered spam. It’s good & healthy that you take into account what some of the possibilties could be. You are giving me a great gift by sharing an array of helpful content and you’re saving me a lot of work/time, and I’m one of many you help every day. There will always be a couple people who won’t benefit or can’t benefit from your service.

  61. Annie’s situation is extreme. If you could help her that would be great, Joel. Thanks.

  62. Annie, I am so sorry. How terrible. I would report this person to WordPress at

  63. Thank you, Joel. You are right. I don’t hold it against them. I wonder if I did something injurious. But, you are right, just as in real life, people pare back their relationships. In real life, too, though, I’ve felt that ache when someone once dear to me pared me away.

  64. I am so sorry that social media blocking or unfriending has injured you so deeply. I send you cyberhugs.

  65. Narcissistic parenting no doubt can make one particularly sensitive to rejection. Luckily, my skin is a bit thicker. Part of me says, “I don’t care. I’m me. This is who I am and what I do.” Another part hurts a little, but just a little. I isolate, too, though. So… there’s that. In my case, I isolate because… actually, I’m not quite sure. I fear hypomanic triggering, I suppose. Then there’s overcoming inertia. Socializing takes energy. I must get up off the couch and move.

  66. Thank you, Sheri. It is everyone’s right to block or unfriend others, and they need not explain themselves. Still, it hurts. If I ever inadvertently injured someone in some way, I would like to know how so that I could apologize. I regularly block men who direct message me in Facebook, for I’m a married woman and consider cyber-chatting with men improper. My conversations with men I want to be public on my Timeline. If a man makes romantic overtures, he’s blocked.

    Thank you for your continued support. I have nothing but respect for you and the work you’ve done and continue to do.

  67. Thank you, Dy! I do realize though, that on social media I post perhaps too much for some people. Some people consider my type of link posting spam. I consider it sharing great content. But, whatever. To each his or her own. Then again, perhaps that is not why I was blocked at all. Perhaps I truly offended or hurt someone without knowing how or why. Obviously, that is far from my intent.

  68. It sucks because it’s rejection, but I think usually, it’s more of a “it’s not you, it’s me” type of deal. I think blockers are generally the type of social media users who want a more intimate group of “friends” or “followers” or whatever.

    Whatever the reason, I don’t let it mess with your head too much! Unimportant stuff like that can get people like us all worked up over something we can’t control. So keep your head up and keep doing what you do. It’s their loss anyway.

  69. It does hurt when someone unfriends us etc. My niece did, and it really hurt me… but I didn’t get notified by FB.. I didn’t think they did that…. Just realize that some people just cut down on the number of people they follow, for various reasons… But try not to think about it too much… and don’t take inward. Diane

  70. This is beyond acceptable – see what Joel says (I trust him!) and go from there….personally I’d complain to WordPress! good luck with this!!!

  71. you know Kitt, I have been unfriended by many on Facebook. My ‘used to be’ best friend, whom I’ve known since school unfriended me saying I was ‘too much for her’. I say, if they can’t handle me and my conditions, they are not worth knowing. Let it go, you are much more than that, and them, and I know it hurts, but try not to let it. Turn the pain into something positive. They don’t know what they’re doing.

  72. Fill your life with the substance of being busy and enjoying and making progress with what you do. As for rejection, it may not be that though it appears so. It very well may be rejection. I am in sales so experience this all the time, smiles, I also experience the joys of what is so very beautiful…..Applause!!!!!!!! Applause is like being a performer and I am inundated with it all the time!!!!!! I give thanks.

  73. I like the ones who say thanks for following and un follow the next day lol.

    That is truly odd and disturbing, Annie, I have had my share of online stalkers, but nothing like this.

    I have not been able to locate any plugin for you that will block such activity, I am able to do it because I own my site and can block people in the OS, But if you are interested, I will look a little more to see what can be done.

  75. yes I do this too. You can always read and comment.
    Maybe one problem is that WordPress is set up better in some ways. Although once in a while I would like to stop someone from reblogging my posts. Actually just one person. Can I do that? This person is practically stalking me. They have a blog that is supposed to be mental health awareness and disabilities awareness.
    They write nothing of their own.

    They have been reblogging every single one of my posts, with few exceptions. There was a recent 48 hour period where they reblogged about 15 of my posts.

    This included posts that had nothing to do with mental health at all. They were just personal posts like, I am sick with the flu and I baked a cake with my daughter today.

    Also all poetry from my poetry blog. And posts from my Domestic Abuse blog Videos and memes too that they receive the like on because there is no need to View Original. The same goes for the poetry.

    Why would they want to reblog my personal posts that were meant for my readers. They are not appropriate on someone else’s mental health awareness blog??

    I am sorry to vent but I am almost afraid of what I write now because I know this person will reblog it. Alsl much of the time, they reblog within minutes of my posting it.I feel like I am being watched by a stalker as I eat dinner at a restaurant and then receive a call “Annie, I thought you did not like that restaurant”

    Because I have been stalked it is triggering. But isnt there something wrong with someone reblogging everything you post ? And is there any recourse? I tres removing the reblog button for a few hours but they found a way to reblog them anyway….so creepy


  76. Kitt, people block, mute, and unfriend all the time. I do it myself when there is strong reason to do so. (I mute adbots, for example, and trolls. In fact, I have used mute more than block these days.) And while sometimes there is an ache when they do it back, I take a deep breath and don’t hold it against them.

    Some people are flighty. Some are just paring their friends’ list of people who are marginal relationships. I wouldn’t take it to heart. It is just a better documented example of what happens in relationships than in most areas of our life.

    You’re all right by me.

  77. These days, people can be pretty flippant about unfriending or blocking people. But like you, even if it isn’t meant to hurt my feelings, it always does. I can obsess on it for months, and I have been sent into periods of horrific depression from something this simple. I know I shouldn’t let it be that serious a thing, but I am who I am, and it hurts.

  78. Kitt, I’m so sorry that happened to you. I think one reason I mostly avoid social media is that I have a very low tolerance for rejection. No, let’s rephrase that: rejection of any type triggers me to the point of hurt-rage and obsession on the rejection for weeks, months even, and in some cases, years. It’s one reason I practice isolation as a major form of self preservation. So my heart goes out to you. Be good to yourself now…what about that bath 🙂

  79. Kitt – Amazing what some people will do without thinking how others will be affected. You have an amazing presence on social media and I applaud your effort.

  80. Good! I watched the “stress” TED talk this morning and it was excellent; she rocked it. And her message is so powerful. We’re going to be stressed by little things and big things and it’s the way we react to that stress that matters. Remember how awesome you truly are.

    You help so many people – you are a bright light of inspiration and true caring. The brightest lights sometimes attract a little darkness. Your beautiful, compassionate light outshines any shadows that come your way!

  81. That is terrible. I’m so very sorry.

  82. I will continue my work and won’t take it personally. We never really know the reasons why people block or unfriend us.

  83. I suppose it doesn’t, but I believe feeling rejected is normal. I know that I cannot please everyone, nor should I.

  84. I’ve stopped actively following most blogs because I simply so not have the time to keep up. But I still technically follow them. I use lists on WordPress to focus on a subset of blogs.

  85. So sorry you experienced this type of rejection in your life. So painful. Terrible that that volunteer offered you a narcotic. Illegal, irresponsible, reprehensible really. Our health requires that we take good care of ourselves.

  86. Yes, on the flip side there are many fake followers. Followers who share no interests with me, but are trying to sell something.

  87. Yes. It does make sense. Thank you for sharing your experience with me.

  88. Thank you so much, Ellen. I really am thankful to have friends like you.

  89. It was because of that behavior of that one person, I got blocked from other peoples Facebook accounts.

  90. Blocking you is beyond f*cked-up – you know how I feel about this issue…I’m going to write a bit about it – hope you don’t mind!

    During May I was blocked by someone we both “know” online, Kitt, and the only reason I found out about that was because I tweeted the blocker to thank her for retweeting something that mentioned me!!!!

    (Make sense???)

    So I was totally baffled and very upset.

    We had a mutual friend (someone you know as well) so I emailed her to ask if she knew what was up. She very kindly got in touch with the blocker right away. The blocker claimed she had no idea why she blocked me. Hmmm.

    Then she unblocked me.

    But my heart was closed to the blocker from that point on, as I didn’t really buy her story. To block someone takes a bit of effort – it’s not easily done. I don’t wish to associate with negative energy channels.

    As far as the Facebook unfriendings that I had are concerned, well, those acts turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I needed to get off Facebook for a while and those two gals inspired the hell out of me to do just that.

    On much brighter note, you are so insightful, so please try to look at this upsetting incident in a different way. Maybe the person who blocked you did get things mixed up & didn’t mean to block you. you never know. All I can say is that it’s the person’s loss.

    I get SO SO SO SO SO SO SO much value out of your tweets & posts.
    Don’t let this bullshit get to you too much. Easy to say, I know. It took me at least few days for my upset feelings to diminish.

    I love you!!!!!!!!

    p.s. Re: the Facebook unfriending you mentioned, well, she unfriended me too, I believe, and messaged me to let me know she unfriended me and blocked me on Twitter. Her strange behavior had nothing to do with us. We were wonderful, encouraging and supportive to her for months on end. She is very mentally ill. That’s why she did what she did, and it made no sense. She needs excellent professional help.

  91. Not sure why, you feel it matters? Cheers Jamie

  92. You have so many other people that support and follow you, so I wouldn’t worry about it that much.

    I have to admit that there are a few on WordPress that I stopped following due to the sheer amount of posting (mainly re-posting) that they did. I was just inundated with too much and I couldn’t follow all those posts AND everyone else’s. It wasn’t personal, just something I had to do.

    So hopefully you will be able to move on quickly and focus on what is important.

  93. Rejection is my middle name. It started when I was young. I lived in a rural area and was separated from other kids and activities. One time this girl promised that her Mother would pick me up and take me to a “Young Life” Christian meeting and she didnt’ show up or call afterwards and when I ran into her in the halls of the high school, she’d pretend not to see me. This “No show no call” business is my Achilles heel, and I try not to inflict this behavior on other people.

    Cases in point: I attend a local “drop in” arts centered behavioral health center. For five years I volunteered for them, developed well attended support groups that are still running today and then I developed Tardive Dyskinesia from Geodon (atypical antipsychotic) I had to greatly reduce the amount of this type of medication to avoid the Parkinon’s like thrashing and shaking. So maybe I’m more fragile than before, more mood swings? More sensitive? Anyway, they don’t think I’m healthy enough to volunteer. “Not stable enough” is how they put it. In the meantime, a volunteer ran into me in the parking lot (he’s an older, lecherous, lonely guy) and he handed me a 100 ct bottle of narcotic painkillers hidden by a Wall Street journal. He’s a ‘volunteer.’ Then he calls me up and tells me the CIA is hunting him down and bugging his phones. Stable? I did not turn him in. Another ‘volunteer’ was supposed to do computer work for me and I had one appointment with her, but she did not show up or call for appointment two or three. She’s stable enough to volunteer, and it’s supposed to be OK with me that she didn’t show up or call for professional work. She didn’t show up to facilitate her “bipolar support” meeting either, but they let that fly. But me, they won’t allow to rejoin the ranks. Some people just don’t ‘get’ me and don’t want anything to do with me.

  94. Don’t fret. I just deleted my original twitter page. I had fake followers and so many. It got annoying, so I decide to restart.

  95. It really was strange. But I wanted to share this with you just to show that it certainly isn’t you my dear or anything you said, etc. To be honest, at first when it happened to me I thought, what did I say? Well I only shared this photo which I do on twitter (I think this person is a travel writer if I am not mistaken). But the actions of this person spoke louder than his words (or blocking me) if that makes sense?

  96. Oh, Kitt, with all your activity on so many networks, you’re bound to get something like this even if every post and tweet were perfect. Lots of people out there have lots of issues. I know it hurts– had an issue myself with someone. One of the hazards of the job. We love you. Try to forget about it.

  97. It is strange when someone informs you that they are unfriending you but doesn’t say why.

  98. Gertie, you’ve been far worse than blocked. You’ve been out and out abused on Facebook. My heart goes out to you. What happened to you was an ongoing assault.

  99. Strange. That sounds like a lovely photo. Who knows?

  100. On Twitter, directly. I was adding followers on #FF, and I was blocked by one of the tweeters.

  101. Thank you, Jim. I appreciate it. I’m in good company.

  102. I had someone block me on FB a few years back, and she informed me that she was doing it but didn’t give me a reason. We were not close friends but I couldn’t imagine how I could’ve offended her. Maybe I didn’t. I’ll never know. It pissed me off though. I’ve been over it for a long time, but I think she at least owed me an excellent explanation.

  103. I understand about being blocked. I haven’t been blocked on twitter than I am aware of but have been blocked from people on Facebook. I was blocked because of someone else’s behavior and it sucks.

  104. Kitt, I know how you feel. I think people do many things that we can never understand, and here’s an example. I sent someone on twitter (a couple of months ago) one of my post photos of a sunrise that I had taken that day. I said something like, “Great sunrise this a.m. on Lake Michigan”. Not only did the person not reply, but they blocked me! Keep being YOU my dear and try to ignore those that we will never understand. Big hugs, Cher xo

  105. Did you get this report by email, or on twitter? Suspect anything coming by email.

    Got one yesterday too which claimed that my account may be in danger of “being recycled” unless I logged in today. Knew this was spam only because my account lay dormant for about 4 years before I started using it again very recently.

    That account is actually a account which tweets about staying safe on twitter, with 2.47million followers – so unlikely that they would take the time to block anyone.

    It does hurt, doesn’t it? As if unfollowing is not enough.

    It happened to me last week and I don’t know why. I still post the same mix of mental health and progressive posts as always.

    I guess I’m just letting you know you’re not alone and that I don’t get it either.
