Have you ever been actually disturbed by a question that has been asked here?

In the few years I have been on this site, I have never been disturbed by something I have read here until today. It really worries me if you know what I am talking about. Seems like an odd downhill progression. How about you? Any other serious posts disturb you here ever? Don't know what category this applies to BTW.

  • Yes, absolutely. It reminds me of a truly disturbed person I worked with in the past who had absolutely no business being a parent. CM is my refuge from the real world. So, even though I no longer work in that field, the last thing I want is to deal with that stuff here. Especially when I'm not getting paid.

  • Yes, today is one example, but a few years ago, a young mom posted some questions that told about a very abusive situation she was in, with a newborn baby. A lot of moms on here...including me, were very worried. I contacted cafemom. I also tried posting places in the area where she seemed to be where she could get some help. Other moms were also obviously disturbed. I never did hear what happened with her, I hope she got help and got out with her baby.

  • just one odd question will not disturb me- this is the internet afterall
    when a series of questions that are very disturbing and with questions in between that are very innocent- makes it very bizarre

  • yes, once in a very great while, I remember once a couple of weeks ago there was a question about someone wanting to commit suicide, it was poofed almost as soon as it came up.
    today I am disturbed again.

  • Yes and I also reported them.

  • anon, just curious, why would you report them? sounds nutty yes, but I am not sure if reporting them will do any good, and may backfire if indeed the situation is real, I have a sad feeling it might be.

  • It doesn't fit a poofed profile, and is almost too raw to be fake, and even if it is fake they still have problems almost bigger than the ones described.

  • not any one question that I can think of really...but a combination of them today has made me wonder if the person posting is really getting the help she needs

  • I looked at her profile and I PMed her to see where abouts Utah does she live. She has her name and her husbands name so that doesnt really narrow down anything. I hope I can get more info from her
