Ah hell, I'm gonna have to get this off my chest sooner or later, I might as well do it now.
I was very disappointed by the thread I made a week or two ago, the one with the incoherent OP. I was disappointed by people individually, I was disappointed by MS as a group. I'll keep personal criticism where it's supposed to be, personal messaging, if I would feel the need to. I'm not trying to scrutinize people individually. I want to address the larger picture.
Because it saddens me, thinking about all the work we need to do. So much convincing that needs to be done before the world is as conscious about the pervasiveness of child abuse as it needs to be. So much open-mindedness we're asking from people. And so much more pain that has to be endured because of disbelief.
Yet, when I come and join a group of people who understand this absurd struggle better than anyone else, and I tell them I have experienced important therapeutic effects from administering certain drugs, I get rejected. I do not get the benefit of the doubt, I do not get critically questioned. I get treated like a lying drug addict, period. That I would not be here fighting at your side without these experiences, simply gets ignored, multiple times. Instead I must be masterminding a ploy to get everyone at MS shooting smack in their eyeballs.
I understand how sensitive of a topic this is. I understand about everyone here fights a fight to remain free from addictive behaviors. And if there are a few people who need to believe firmly that every drug is the absolute evil, then fine, throw a bible at my head. If it helps you in your personal struggle to keep your life together, then I'm willing to take a blow for that.
But if all I get is blows, mixed with painful silence, I get very pessimistic. If the message that not all drugs are devastating to all people all the time is too absurd for survivors to even consider, then the truth about child abuse will remain far, far too absurd to non-survivors for a long, long time to come.
Just my opinion. You should be the last people on the face of the planet to hurt other people with unconditional disbelief.
