When I did HBO for my foot, I made the mistake of becoming friends with one of the other patients. He is not someone I would have normally had as a friend, but I was going thru a very bad period at the time and concerned that I was going to lose my leg. I had quit my job, moved away from where I had lived for almost 20 years and moved in with my mother while I applied for disability. I went from having a job with a lot of responsibility and working long hours to sitting around and not having much to do. I was desperate for anyone to talk to and made some poor choices as friends. I can’t really explain why I did not cut contact with him sooner other than I felt sorry for him.
The weekend of the Super Bowl, he started sending me a bunch of annoying emails. I was not in the mood for his crap, so I told him to stop and that he was getting on my nerves. He continued to send emails so I blocked his emails from getting thru. Then he started phoning me and he called about 5 times in a half hour period so I blocked his phone number.
Now he started harassing me thru my blog. I have my comments set up that you need approval before they get posted so they are not getting approved and his comments will never be approved. He sent two messages using one of the doctor’s names that was at the wound center we went to. He entered the actual web address of the hospital but misspelled the doctor’s name. He subscribed to my blog and unfortunately, I am not able to block his subscription without blocking everyone. Today I have received three messages thru the contact Kelly field. Apparently, he does not realize that in order to leave a comment or contact me, WordPress collects the IP address and sends that information to me.
Last week, my sister suggested filing a police report and I was reluctant to do that. At this point, I know that the only way that he will leave me alone is for me to file a police report against him. I contacted AOL and their terms of service violations department and provided the emails I received from WordPress with the IP address and his comments. I should have filed a police report this morning but had started moving stuff around in my living room so did not want to have a police officer coming in at that point. I am ready to file the police report now and they can handle the problem from here.
