I AM MAAAAAAAAD, LIVID, and whatever else goes along with it!!

In Michael's blog today he wrote about a person writing to him in the Q & A section of his blog. If you go there you will see this statement:

                 You sure do complain about having AIDS a lot. The bible says you reap what you sow.

Yes he talks about having AIDS. HE HAS AIDS. It is a reality for him. A hard one to be exact. In ONE day, he will take 29 pills. On Wednesdays he takes FIVE, yes 5, of azithromicin. He FINALLY got to start his antiretrovirals. Now he has GOOD days.

Do you know what a GOOD day consists of?

Let's see.

For beginners, not puking you guts up for hours.

Not running to the potty with the runs for hours.

Being able to walk from the bed to the front door or the bathroom without being totally wiped out.

Actually weighing more than 120 at 6'2".

Being able to actually make a sandwich AND eat it.

Sitting through a 30 minute sitcom with out going to sleep.

Walking even though EVERY MUSCLE in your body hurts so bad you want to cry.

He can't even take the sheets off his bed without being so tired he has to sit down or lay down.

HE HAS NO RESERVE ENERGY. ALL THE ENERGY HE HAS HE USES EVERY MINUTE/SECOND OF THE DAY. THERE IS NOTHING TO FALL BACK ON.

Having AIDS is not something you would wish on your worst enemy, much less someone you love.

And for this stranger to make that comment to MY SON makes me want to open a BIG can of TEXAS WHOOP ASS all over them. 

HOW DARE YOU SIT IN THAT HOLIER THAN THOU CLOSED BOX AND JUDGE MY SON.

WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. EVERY ONE OF US. IT COULD BE ANY ONE OF US THAT GETS AIDS.

Transfusions, sex, yes, drugs. It can come to us innocently or not so innocently.

IF WHAT THAT PERSON SAYS IS TRUE, THEY WILL HAVE MUCH REAPING THEMSELVES.

Not kacklin so much tonight. I'm steamin for sure.

Michael, I love you.

KaLynn,

You open that can of whoop ass and get another one ready for me! I'm so sickin' tired of sinners judging. Jesus says LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED YOU...that asshole needs to step off his cow dung pedestal and look in the mirror...because you and I will be behind him/her armed and dangerous!!!

MC is blessed to have you and your family support. I pray for your continued strength, patience, and faith. Hope to meet you someday,
~L

I can't believe someone would be so cold-hearted and say something like that!
I'm pretty sure if they were stuck in the same situation, they would bitch and moan too.
Working in a hospital, I see first hand what people deal with on the drugs they have to take and I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.
Stupidity is a disease and I'm sorry someone would say that to Michael.
That gets me steamin' too.

those people who say things like that are so f*cking clueless about reality and what people have to go through that's it's amazing they've ever lived anywhere besided a cardboard box with random bullshit being fed to them every waking moment. pitying them is the right thing to do. because those people are worthless and the truely worthless will never realize how worthless they are, and that's sad. those poor poor stupid people. they have no concept of life. and if they don't see it's pain, they can probably never see it's joy.

No wonder you're mad, and so would I be. There's always one... if I could get my hands on the perpetrator I would teach a well deserved lesson. There but for the grace of God go I.... folk should remember that. I visited a blog just now, the blogger has been in hospital for a couple of days because of an infection from a cut on the foot and, guess what, some idiot blogger suggested she was there for solvent abuse. What is WRONG with some holier-than-thou people? Oooo I'm spitting feathers....

You know KaLynn, there are a LOT of ignorant people in this world. And sadly, they feel the need to speak their mind. I feel a true Christian loves EVERYONE, and that God loves EVERYONE and welcomes EVERYONE into his kingdom.

Tell Michael just to delete the comment and chalk it up to stupid people.

Don't waste any more energy on this. There are a lot of people who support you. :)

I would be VERY MAD too!! I am so sick of people acting so "holY" and judging others!! It could be any one of us!!!

Unbelievable, sad and pathetic that someone could be so ignorant. The world would be a millions times better place if even 1/10th of the world were as honest and open as Rabbit is. In solidarity with a hug. - G

KaLynn said...

I love you guys! You make my world go round! Thank you so much! Love and hugs to each of you!

You have a fine son with a good heart. I am sure you are proud.

KaLynn, there are so many who love and support you, it's not worth wasting your energy on someone so small minded. Bright blessings and all our positive thoughts and prayers to you and yours.
