when it spills from offline to online
How the hell do you handle your family reading your site? More and more not only is my family (more specifically my mother and twin sister) “stalking” me online aka creating accounts at twitter/flickr/facebook/myspace/etc and tracking me or publicly complaining about me on those sites, stalking OSN etc, calling me or withholding information from me if I don’t write a “nice” entry about them (my sister just recently did not tell me Danny’s father emailed her asking for MY home address to mail Daniel clothing, I only found out because he txt’d me to confirm my address except… it was her address… yep she tried to take my 7yr old’s clothes and hide them not to mention it’s the first contact from his father since I picked him up in March).
I know I am rambling I’m just upset. I have my mother creating all sorts of fraudulent ebay accounts (even just created one with my sisters personal information, my sisters response? “but… I told her no…. oh well” and using MY life as a dramatic way to not get into trouble. Apparently my son and I are hospitalized for near death experiences, I have had multiple miscarriages or stillbirths, etc. I found this out simply by googling her name, there are message boards threads about her.
Sorry for rambling, I just don’t know of anyone else really who is punished by “IRL” folk for their online presence, it’s why I get scared of really writing anything. If I even tweet that I cried (I’m 6months pregnant, I cry at EVERYTHING) my mother is convinced my boyfriend is physically beating me. Where she gets this impression? I have no idea. I am aware my sister has created a lot of fictional stories to tell my parents about me. They all feed into each other.
Anyway, any advice would be great at this point!
ETA In the small time this entry has been up, my sister has txt’d and emailed me numerous times full of cussing and put downs because I dare not share the information with her. My mother in the past day and a half has created 10 usernames (which I have declined), sent numerous emails, left voicemails, on how she simply deserves and MUST read my private entries. I don’t get it. I really don’t.
