Been on ADs for months now, I think they only keep my OCD at bay, somewhat. But I go through episodes fairly often and over what some others consider (friends/relatives) VERY trivial issues. Here's an example of my latest episodes which is lasting 2 days now:

I was blocked on Facebook by someone I don't know very well (to those of you who are not familliar with FB, when you block someone it means, they pretty much NEVER want to speak to you again. It is a big deal. I have a fairly good idea why she blocked me because one of our last interaction included my admission that

Hey,

I think she was probably mortally embarrassed to have this bankrupcy known, maybe she didn't realize fully that the info was out there for anyone to see. I think blocking you from FB might have been a knee jerk reaction.

I think when we have had depression , even basic things that don't worry non depressives can send us back down again. I don't feel it is particularly because we have issues.

Just my thoughts

Promise

i blocked someone around 2 months ago. my reason was her profile was of 2 naked men and then some. i have an adult daughter and my 10 year old grandson. i didn't want them to see this stuff, that was my reason. if her profile had not been this picture i would not have done it.

Thank you for your response. I think your perspective just could be accurate (that we with depressive tendencies are prone to reacting in the way I did by getting depressed over something that could be perceived as trivial to others). However, it doesn't excuses my wrong doing by not having proper etiquette with thewoman who decided to sever ties with me over my indiscretion.

I have sent her an email earlier today apologizing for my actions but my intuition tells me that I shouldn't expect to heear back from her. Deep down I KNOW that's how inappropropriate my behavior was.

If anyone cares to comment on the tone of the said email, it basically says in vert few paragraphs that I am sorry for my indiscretion and I probably was under the influence of wine if that serves as any reason. Also, that I never meant for her to feel uncomfortable. I really wanted to add that I am not some stalker but I didn't want to sound as I was protesting too much.

Well, Sunset. I just have one other question, were you absolutely sincere when you said that you wouldn't lose sleep over my situation (assuming you were me) or was this a way to make me feel better? I'm still struggling with processing what I've done even if most people I've talked to about this assure me that it's " not that big of a deal" and that I am merely guilty of committing social faux pas.

I really would like to know what would be the well adjusted person's response/reaction if they did what I did.
