I found out yesterday that a person I know who had been emailing ME with her problems told people I know that I was a lunatic and she wished I would quit emailing her. Here is the deal. I seperated from my ex a few years ago, the farm went up for sale. One of the women leasing a horse from me started dating my ex. He wound up buying me out my half of the farm and this friend ( I considered her a friend) moved in with her 3 kids. She instantly started having the same problems I did, his temper, mood swings, etc.. and starts emailing me for advice. I moved to Arkansas, found a new love, and really didn't mind telling her I really had no advice on how to handle the temper etc.. but wished her luck. I acted like a friend. She tells all these people at the barn I am a lunatic who is unhappy and is still in love with my ex and wants him back. It hurts. Why do people act like this?
