    Why do people come here to be insulting?

    I have PTSD from my mother, yet everytime I mention this in one way or another I get called mean or or told I am lying.  I am not lying and whats mean is giving your child PTSD.  Has anyone else expereinced this?
    I am thinking of deleting some hubs becuase of this

    Don't get down on yourself. Set your hub comments so that you have to approve them then deny mean comments.

      Thank you and I did delete the comments, it's just that I talk about this stuff to give others courage to speak out and when stuff like this keeps opening up old wounds it makes me question what I'm doing

    Internet commenters are notoriously mean.  For the most part I'd say that hubpages is a fairly nice community in a relative sense.  I've seen some really messed up youtube comments.  Anyway, along the lines of what Cobrafan said, just remember there will always be someone who finds it funny to come on to the internet under an anonymous name and say things they wouldn't normally say.  Don't take it seriously, and remember that there is a much larger supportive community out there.

    You have to learn to have a thick skin on the internet. It's unfortunate that people are immature and act this way but they aren't going to stop.

    Don't unpublish your hubs just because of some rude people on the internet. There are likely people who appreciate those hubs and enjoy them. Focus on pleasing those people, those who actually want to read your work.

    Just delete the comments of those who are rude or hurtful. Don't delete the comments just because they disagree with you.

    It's hard to answer this question because I have no idea what you mean when you say your mom gave you PTSD. I know PTSD stands for Post tramatic stress disorder... but how did she give it to you? I don't know why some people are insulting. Some people are cruel. There are those who only think of themselves. Don't delete your hubs over a few idiots. Keep writing what you feel like writing. It may actually help someone else. Good Luck.

      PTSD can be a result of many kinds of trauma; kids can develop PTSD from witnessing a loved one in a dangerous or life threatening situation. Or, if a parent has PTSD, a child can get the symptoms without ever having experienced a direct trauma.

    I've been fairly fortunate with my hubs. The comments have been fairly positive. The only time I've had issues was with the religious forums, where I end up getting shot at from both sides. But I now chose to stay away from those forums, because they really are a waste of time.

    But don't let a small percentage of negative people bring you down. Be true to yourself, and I hope you don't cave into the pressure and delete those hubs. Personally I find your personal experience to be inspiring and I feel your candor in discussing difficult & personal subject to be really courageous. I'm sure there are many that benefit from your hubs. So don't let the bastards grind you down.

    i haven't read your hubs because i'm not one who cares about mental illness but i do know that some people take others opinions when they differ as being mean. i don't know if this is the case in your hubs but maybe it's more then that. i have to ask though, how did your mother give you PTSD?

      I don't want to discuss how I got PTSD and I do understand people can disagree but there is a way of doing it that's not mean

      see my comment above to answer your question (in general terms)

    There are several classes of insulting hubbers.

    The first is "I am right and you are wrong and do not argue with me about it."

    The second is, "Do you have any idea what you are talking about."

    The third is, "I see your point but you are incorrect in your assumption that the world is actually round (or some other ridiculous comment to change the subject).

    Discussion of the 2nd Amendment, religion, and politics will bring out the really mean people--unless you happen to agree with them, Then you will get the not so mean people who will say that you just do not understand what you are talking about."
