Abuse - Article 1

This article is the beginning of a series of articles written to raise awareness of the effects ABUSE: verbal, written, physical can have on an individual.

I was faced with some serious negativity and communication abuse which was meant to demean and hurt.
The person succeeded and they managed to break me down after I'd just picked myself up.  This person knows me, they know that I suffer from depression and social isolation yet they still felt the need to use Social Media to abuse me and create negativity around me.  
 
This person states "they support people who may be feeling islolated."

Knowing that the person verbally and intentionally used Social Media to attack and abuse another person let me ask you.....
... Are they really the kind of support you want for your family and vulnerable relative or friend?
