I Want You

Living with ALS is tough sometimes.  I just completed a clean-up of Facebook friends.  I am so tired of voicing an opinion to the opinionated and being called a hater or terrible person.  This is a common occurrence among family members.  The typical spewers of sarcastic wit can’t take it being thrown back at them.  It seems they can’t even recognize when you are not being sarcastic and just trying to help.

The phrase I hate the most is “I’m sorry you have ALS and I wish you the best, but I just can’t stand you and don’t ever want to talk to you again.  Bye.”  Okay, that is not an exact quote, but you get the idea.

So here I am searching for understanding and living with a fatal disease.  Can you love someone who wants to be your friend but voted for the other guy?  I guess time will tell.

    That’s terrible. There is just a lot of anger going around these days it seems. You are a wonderful person and I love your wit and your opinions which you also are allowed to have! Love you! 💗

    I know what you mean. I’ve lost a lot of respect for friends and family members over indefensible views and statements. I haven’t removed anyone as a friend because I still want access to their family pictures, but I stopped following many of them.
