Well as you all know I wrote my blog this morning from bed. Feeling crappy as all get out, I decided to go back to sleep. I woke up and looked at my FB page MS with Ms. Alex. I had also posted my blog on some of my MS support groups. I’ve had a rather positive response in the different groups. After all who doesn’t like reading positive/funny things when things look bleak?
Well low and behold I had someone respond to my blog with “Really? has faith cured your MS?” I responded with “nope, it hasn’t at all. But then I never claimed it did.” I went on to say this was my way of coping with MS. Had this woman read my blog in it’s entirety she would have seen where I was going with it, But no she spouted off making herself look silly.
My question is why would someone heckle another persons coping technique or belief system? I at no time said this is what you HAVE to do to get through MS. If anything I’ve always been the no politics, no religion kind of gal. I respect everyones religion and beliefs. I was merely stating what Ive done to get through MY rough times with MS. On the other side of that coin, I also would never dare to heckle someone else’s way of doing or their beliefs. It’s rude and disrespectful. This woman was not legit asking me if I had been cured. She was being snarky, it was NOT appreciated.
NOT cool, I stay in my lane and expect everyone else to stay in theirs. If someone doesn’t like something written then you can click and get out of the blog and keep it moving. While it really chapped my ass, I held off and refrained from getting down to her level. If anything that would make me look as ignorant as she appeared. So with that being said, I hope I didn’t offend anyone. I am in no way shape or form apologizing for my beliefs. They are after all MY beliefs and I stick to them. I do want to say if there is anything anyone doesn’t agree with feel free to unfollow.
I love my blog as it is therapeutic and brings me a lot of laughs. It also as I’ve said before is a diary of sorts. So I’m keeping my diary and thats that. I do have to give my friend Lesley props for coming to my defense with that woman. I appreciated her words more than I can say.
Now on to other silly business, I got up after going back to sleep was able to shower, and my son took me for ice cream. I was kind of in a funk and I suppose he picked up on it. We went to my fave ice cream joint Cold Stone Creamery. YUM!!!!! Its one of my guilty pleasures. I was telling my girlfriend that he took me and told her “my, my how the roles have changed It was like he was the parent and I was the kid”. It made me chuckle. I’m lucky to have those boys and my sweet hubby.
Speaking of my hubby, he was at work the other day and called me asking me who Ashley was at the dentist office? I told him I think she was the hygienist. A nice girl who did a bang up job on my cleaning. He goes on to say she called him while he was at work looking for me.He said he was very terse with her. I told him I was’t sure why she would call him since I only left his number as my emergency contact. So I called and asked the receptionist if everything was ok? She said yes and Ashley was with a patient, but she’d check. She comes back to the phone and says ” she was calling to let you know the new Oral B toothbrushes are in. I said really? she thought that was emergency enough to call my emergency contact to tell me that? Don’t get me wrong I’ve done sales, I get it, but there are certain things you just don’t do. I told the receptionist to “please let Ashley know the only time she needs to call my emergency contact is if I’m dead in their chair”. She chuckled and agreed and said she would talk to her about it.
So now that I’ve cleared up the whole religion debacle, I hope you all continue to enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy writing it. Still smiling my cheesy smile. Good bad or otherwise I still feel every day is a gift.
