To All You Freaks And Weirdo's...

I received a disturbing email this morning from a CHEESE reader, informing me there was some kind of bizarre coup circling around the INNERDNETS about me...OK, maybe not a *coup d'etat* because that would imply some level of importance! More like strange and bold lies by a person or persons (no identities were provided, lest I would NOT have to address this publicly on a blog and could simply contact the culprits directly!) regarding who and what they "think" I am.

First, let me preface this post with my belief: "The Internet is an unusually bizarre and complicated social network system."

There. I said it. And I fully believe it. The Internet and modern technology has replaced the most simple of human connections...direct contact...being able to look into the eyes of another...to touch their hand, see their facial expressions, and hear the intonations of their words. There is a VAST communication void that has been established on the Internet in our age of blogging, email, and *Instant Messaging*...it may be *instant* to type to places across the globe, but we lose some of the basic fundamentals of connecting with another. This is why our court system here in the States continues to allow face to face contact with one's accuser and with a jury of our peers! When THAT fundamental is lost in our courts, I think we might as well ALL pack our bags for prison...

So, back to addressing *freaks and weirdo's*...

The CHEESE reader who emailed me was concerned that someone (who I will refer to as *freaks and weirdo's*, since I don't KNOW who they are or if there is more than one!) had informed them I was presenting a false identity on one of the Social Network Pages (which shall remain nameless to protect the identity of my "informant"...really getting into deep cyber espionage here! LOL) and I was "calling for" people with MS to join me in something, which is not clear what that "something" is/was. WOOT?

OK...I'm only going to say this once to the *freaks and weirdo's* in question:

GET A FRICKIN' LIFE SO YOU HAVE LESS TIME TO SPREAD YOUR ANONYMOUS AND ILL INFORMED CRAP AROUND.

What you see is what you get here on CHEESE (and any OTHER website/social page/in person contact)...do I SHARE my full, real name with you here? NO. Because I am keenly aware there are already too many *FREAKS AND WEIRDO'S* out there in the world who have way too much time on their hands to GOOGLE me (but it still fascinates me you would even care)! Just accept it...unless suffering from a rare form of dementia and inhibition issues causing unknowing self-disclosure, you will NEVER be privy to my full name, address, date of birth, social security number, etc., or any other direct, identifying information...because I enjoy what few ounces of privacy still exist in my life and my government. So, since you (*freaks and weirdo's*) seem to think I am using a FALSE identity on another drab social page, I'm curious who/what you think my REAL/CURRENT identity IS...since you don't actually KNOW it after all? Unless, of course, you are a direct contact friend who reads CHEESE (and I emphasize the word *friend* there), who wouldn't bother emailing an Internet friend of mine with blatant lies anyway...seriously, what's WRONG with you?

Ooo! Ooo! Let me address that last question I pose...because I think it's important and, since I DO work in psychiatry (no, you don't exactly KNOW my educational background, direct employer, or the functions of my job...I've never disclosed those minute details of my life to you!), I feel qualified to address that question directly.

What I am extrapolating (in my humble, yet educated opinion) from this information about you (*freaks and weirdo's*) is this:
You have many fears. You are most likely a person or persons who try to project themselves into the world as sophisticated, well-grounded, secure, and knowing, but this is a facade...deep inside, you feel inadequate in many areas of your life, thus resorting to attempts at casting doubt on others via malicious gossip (why yes, in fact I DO know a bit about behavioral profiling!). Given the fact you presumably have MS yourself (otherwise I can assume you would NEVER have read this poorly written and blathering blog), most likely sets you up to feel vulnerable, both physically and mental. You therefore, attempt to compensate for this vulnerability via unhealthy means to ease your own fears. Why do I think THAT? Because only a fearful person responds in this manner...whether it is fear of not being good enough, not being important, not being the center of attention, etc. THESE are the reasons someone...anyone...even *freaks and weirdo's*...participate in malicious gossip. It is an attempt to decrease their OWN fear(s) by casting doubt or dismantling another, thereby temporarily feeling a sense of importance or dominance.

I am highly intrigued ANYONE would choose such a low life as myself to stir malicious gossip around! Frankly, this only serves to inflate my already enormous ego. LOL The fact anyone (*freaks and weirdo's*) feels a need to dismantle or cast doubt about me in ANY way, whether in person or on the Internet, causes raucous laughter to erupt in my belly. None of us in this life are really THAT important...BRAINCHEESE included. And the notion I would be "calling for" people with MS to join me in ANYTHING (I'm still curious what this "anything" might be? World domination?!?) makes me laugh until I want to wet my pants!!! This is a blog on the Internet...I write about MS, my life WITH the disease, and an assortment of my own opinions/experiences...
PUT YOUR HAND ON THE MOUSE AND CLICK TO ANOTHER PAGE NOW IF YOU ARE BECOMING TOO MESMERIZED TO HAVE YOUR OWN LIFE OR OPINION SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU ARE READING THIS BLOG...DO IT! Seriously...do it...go away.

If you are familiar with the psychological term, "triangulation", you will fully understand WHY I find your behaviors so dysfunctional, dear *freaks and weirdo's*. My email address is right there on the left-hand side of this blog...if you have questions/comments/concerns about me (and really WANT answers rather than a simple desire to make yourself feel better temporarily via malicious gossip), the door is open right there to email me directly. No, I won't disclose intimate details to you about my life or identity...but it's still OK to HAVE THE BRASS GONADS TO ASK ME DIRECTLY...and leave my friends and other contacts out of your silly mind play. Anyone who has ever emailed me knows I WILL always respond...eventually...and hopefully with enough integrity and insight to leave you feeling comfortable to email me again if you choose to. So please, have the maturity to pose your questions directly rather than triangulating dysfunctionally between an unsuspecting friend and I. It's the *right* thing to do...and since blogging an entire post about YOU is the only way I have to reach out and TOUCH you, I hope you (*freaks and weirdo's*) will heed my advice so we may all lay this issue to rest.

Whatever the alleged "issue" was in the first place! I'm STILL trying to figure THAT one out...

I was going to comment, but I can't seem to stop shaking my head in utter amazement, teetering between utter absurdity and concern .

LISA EMRICH said...

At first reading, I wondered if this was a case of the brief story which is passed around through 20 people and comes out greatly different in the end. A misunderstanding perhaps?

Then on second reading, I really did catch the triangulation reference, a term which I became familiar with when trying to dismantle some seriously dysfunctional relationships.

Well, whatever the case is, I hope that you are doing better on the health front.

Bald Ben said...

Wait....You mean to tell me your real name isn't Braincheese? Wow, I’m not sure how a bald guy moves on from that. And I thought I knew you.

I have a brother who is exactly your "Freak and Weirdos" profile. He can be so very very infuriating. Still, for what it is worth, "Freaks and Wierdos", despite how mind numbingly self-centered, egotistical, and down right ridiculous they are, need something to do with their time. It’s an interesting paradox that "Freak and Weirdos" can create. They will say or act as if you are beneath them, that you are hardly worth the time, but the time they take inserting themselves in your life could have been used far more productively by reading Ovid or putting their head in an oven or something. You see, they have picked you. You Braincheese, and I am sure that you are able to see this, but it means you are some sort of threat to whatever world they have constructed in their over inflated head. It's really like a compliment.

MS. ME said...

We ALL will be joining you when enough of us write in BRAINCHEESE for President of the Freakin' Universe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can I start that internet gossip - I will start the petition now for declaring you WORLD DOMINATRIX!!! (I knew president wouldn't interest you but I'm hoping dominatrix does!!!)

Spaz Attack said...

I like that title for ya Cheese It - World Dominatrix. Hope Global warming doesn't melt your brain cheese so it's just a pile of SPLAT on the sidewalk. Weirdo's and freaks wouldn't know WHAT ta DO or Think if you were just a piece of SPLAT.

In the meantime, keep up your good BLOGGING and flogging (did I say that? Ohhh. hit me some more, please)

Blindbeard said...

I enjoyed this post so much I am going to have to blog about it because I have too much to say to comment here. Don't want to write a novel and bog down your comments, because I'm nice like that... okay, not really, but I thought I could try and sound nice for a change, even though in reality I LOVE long comments.

Sara said...

I know what the problem is, the *freaks and weirdos* are jealous, that's all, sad but true! you probbaly have more facebook friends, more blogspot followers, more myspace mates etc etc

have myelin said...

OMG, you're not talking about my EX are you?

I did think your name was Brainy Cheese One. I am so disappointed.

Cathy said...

I wish I had retained some of my privacy when writing my blog. There are alot of weirdo's and freaks out there. Don't listen to them. I agree they are probably just jealous. You have one of the best blogs out there. And some of us appreciate you telling it like it is.

Miss Chris said...

Interesting that some people have so much time on their hands to get involved in such things... :P I hate "game-players".

Denver Refashionista said...

One of the things I love best about you is your honesty. Keep rockin' it!

Joan said...

OMG! You mean to tell me that all that stuff was NOT true?? Wow, I'm disappointed...
