I am not bothered if you want my sympathy or not, but I felt the need to stress such, so it didn’t look like I was making out that you don’t get vitriol aimed at you.
Well, it clearly is such, because you are dismissing what is criticism of Brexit as hating the UK. This is no different to Labour Party supporters saying Tories are nasty, which you complain about, and is the same uncharitable nonsense which leads to people giving short shrift to you on here. Not like that excuses jibes about your mental health, but you can’t complain about a general tone of dislike when you say stuff like that.
The way I see it is that you don’t allow any criticism of Brexit and dismiss all views of it being a net negative as such. The fact is that Brexit has led to increased bureaucracy and stalled trade and fish problems, among other things. You blame it on the EU, but the problem is there and it must be allowed for people to disagree. Yet you are arguing that those of us with an opposite view have to be hating the UK. This shows an inability to accept other opinions and such broad brush characterising is going to anger others and lead to the infighting on here.
Personally, if I didn’t care about the UK I wouldn’t criticise, I would have no complaints about the concerns I have, so there would be no need to call out what I see as issues. And it’s not like I am blind to faults in the EU. It’s not the whole story, but the EU have screwed up on vaccines compared to us, that is one aspect the UK has succeeded on, and I am glad we have. It doesn’t stop my concerns regarding effects of trade, the economy and other things from Brexit though, and I don’t see why I should justify how being against Brexit makes me some UK hater. That’s the rhetoric of the intolerant.
