Okay, so you don't want to "let it go". You can't come across in a way that will make you look desperate to clear your name, though, because that could feed into the idea that you're "psychotic". Honestly, I think the best way to retaliate is to show people you're not what your ex-roommate says you are. Keep living your life. Be happy. Enjoy what you have, despite the hardships you've had to face. If you're given the opportunity to hang out with friends, and your ex-roommate comes up, then you could quickly make some comment about how she thrives on drama, she's a train wreck, she needs to put other people down in order to feel better about herself, etc. Then MOVE ON. It's not about "letting it go"... it's about not dwelling on the past, because honestly, that's a sign that someone doesn't have enough going on for them now. "Healthy" people don't waste their time on one person and what they've done... they focus on the things that DO bring fulfillment, and find ways to combat the rumors that allows them to put the past to rest and move forward.
