DEAR DEIDRE: AN ex-friend of mine is shaming me on TikTok using a fake account.
While we were close mates, I realised she was always falling out with other people but I stupidly thought our friendship was different.
I’m 28, she’s 26. We met at my old workplace a few years ago.
She was funny and seemed generous too, always buying me drinks and little gifts.
I noticed she could be bitchy about other friends but there was always a good reason – something bad they’d done, or so I thought.
Then we had a massive argument because I called her out on being racist online. She blocked me on social media and refused to answer my texts.
Next thing I knew, there was this fake account in my name, with hideous pictures she’d taken and kept.
She’s also been telling lies about me, saying I sleep around and I have a sexually transmitted infection.

I feel so hurt.
How can I get over this?

DEIDRE SAYS: What’s happened is horrible and painful but you are better off without her in your life.
She sounds toxic and other people will see that. Those who know you won’t believe her lies.
