Yesterday and last night was my time for the critic's corner, I guess. I just had to answer a couple of questions from those joyfully deleted harrangues.
To one poster; No, I have never adopted a child, never want to and won't play one on TV. Why? Well, Gee, it's because I have seen the wreckage and pain among the mothers and their children who were used by this arrogant institution (including me and mine) and I would NEVER contribute to that kind of pain. That was a really weird question. I assume you think that the fact that I have never experienced being an adopter means I don't have any right to object to adoption? I don't think so.......
To Another; Why should it bother you that my reunited children refer to me and think of me as their Mother? They also call their adopters the same thing. They have enough love to go around. Doesn't your adoption-acquired child have the same capacity or has adoption stunted his/her emotional growth? You are obviously very insecure. Get over it.
To The Person Who Objected To My Piece on My Hospital Visit; At no time did I ever say that I was not grateful for the trained people and the technology that was able to give me, FOR A CHANGE, a positive diagnosis. But that did not negate the fact that I should have been on the right medication to begin with (we could have an entire discussion about HMO's and drug coverage on this one) and that I felt 10 times worse after going into the hospital than I did when I went in. I will go to the ends of the earth to avoid another chemical stress test and you can take that baby to the bank. As a person who has numerous medical conditions and is on disability and is damn sick and tired of being sick and tired, I figure I can gripe about whatever I want to. It hurt and it felt terrible and I have the right to complain. This will have to be YOUR problem, honey-bunch.
OK..questions and comments answered for today.
