        I don't think you are disliked. I think you come off as arrogant sometimes to others. There are very positive people here who live on their own, own their own companies, married terrific people and balance their life and challenges very well. Some could say that you haven't experienced the real world since you still live at home and do have that wonderful support that you are so blessed to have. You also do not have as extreme of a challenge from your disability as others have. It's rarely an apples to apples comparison of what each of us encounter in our lives. It's not about whether or not you are liked. It's about what you have to contribute to the site or learn from the site. It is sometimes precieved that you are judgemental rather than a contributor or a learner.

          Wow, disliked and hated?? No way, but I do think you doth protest too much, i.e. you always are trying to convince others how well you have it.

          Imo, either you don't have it so well and are trying to compensate, or you do have it very well, but don't seem to have much empathy for those higher level injuries whose life is about 1000 times more difficult than yours - and not much empathy for people whose family treat them like shit. You think those people like reading all the time about how good you have it, and how well your family treats you?

          It's hard to be a beaming ray of sunshine when you can't move anything and are sitting in a pile of shit and piss, and have a crappy aide who didn't show up, so there you sit until god knows when...

          Just try to be more circumspect, please. You don't have to listen to me, I'm just another booby, but my words should ring true to you.

              wait a minute, did you just start a post about everybody being negative and mistreated, and end up saying you feel everyone hates you?

              K now I think dear bobby is on to something. you dont have it as good as you say. your self esteem is injured.

                ...I honestly never gave it much thought, if you were liked or not. I don't keep track of that stuff. But truly, it's nigh impossible to tell what a person's life is like from these blue-hued posts. I see a lot of good comments and don't consider the not-so-good to be negative, just real. But that's just me, and I'm a glass half full kind of person.

                    I echo the above: I don't hate, nor dislike you. I don't know why I should.

                    If you truly do feel that your family treats you very well, then you have every right to say so. And that's where it should stop -- unless someone asks for your opinion on their specific situation, in which case nobody will look at you funny for giving them that opinion.

                    In this particular thread, though, you go from noticing that some people here have stories to tell that are very different from yours, to concluding that those people must simply like complaining. I think that's an unfair assumption. I also think that unfair assumption is what made some of us react the way we did -- not merely the fact that it came from you.

                    The bottom line is, as Jody and Bob have both already said: we all need a pressure valve now and then. There are people in this community whose only available pressure valve is on the internet. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. Do you?

                        You are not the only one who 'has it good', many people are fortunate. However there are many people in the world who are not as fortunate, I would think this would be obvious without the need for a thread about it, but you're free to start one, i suppose... I think the point some are making here is, it is not necessary to gloat about it. Be grateful for what you have and have empathy for those who may not have the support of friends and family and not as fortunate as you.

                          i can't say how great my family has been. with out them i don't know what i would have done. i used to come home around 4 am almost every night drunk as hell. i can't tell you how many times i have fell out of bed drunk. but that when i was in my 20s. now those days are behind me. my friends i couldn't have ask for any better since day one they never treated me any different soon as i got out of rehab they came and picked me up and we went to the beach like every other year.

                              when you read things people say back, do you perceive we are yelling at you or upset at you in some way?

                              I dont take your having it good as bragging at all, but maybe you are too sensitive to read some posts. can you avoid the ones that bring you down for now?
