Ya damn skippy.
First I need to say this. If you know me via FB, twitter, my blog, the "real" world you know......
I am THE most honest person. Period.
I tell it like it is. Always
I am first and foremost, a friend. Supportive, non judging and ready to be that shoulder some need to lean on.
My blog can be...well sad. It can be depressing. It can be like wow this girls life is jacked up.
And it can also be happy, a source of laughter and smiles.
Whichever it is its always "same same". Its always real, honest and here to let everyone know they're not alone in this journey.
I have met many different people, all who who handle D differently. Not just bg management but in their approach in regards to emotions.
And I LOVE that.
Sometimes I need to curse D out with my friend, and sometimes I need to realize how while D sucks, my baby is here and we are living this life.
BUT what I do not need is those who choose the more postive approach belittling or degrading me and others for our choice to vent, cry, bitch, whatever.
Please understand what I am about to say. Just because YOU may be on the more "postive" or in this case "glittery" side of things does not mean I fault you, or am angry with you. Shit I need you to help me get there sometimes!
What I do fault, or get angry with are those who because they feel differently, feel the need to put myself and others down.
I had Dmoms delete me on FB because I wasn't "glittery and happy" enough.
How is that supportive?
THAT is what I don't like.
That is why I make comments like "suck a unicorn horn, and get high in your pile of glitter".
To address those who have hurt me and my friends with their words.
I was actually told a month back "Well I'm a parent to my child NOT an advocate. Maybe that's your problem. I live our life to the fullest, so that's what we are happy".
How is this above statement ok?
Why am I put down for being a parent AND an advocate for this disease?
So I post funny pics of glitter and unicorns.
I create witty shirts explaining our kids bleed from their fingers not shoot out glitter.
I crack jokes.
Why? To show how senseless this arguing is.
I support both sides of the approach.
BUT I also have a different life than you may.
I have other struggles that complicate the ones D already creates.
So I vent.
I get angry.
And if you don't that's ok.
I respect that. Honestly.
But don't make less of my life because my approach isn't like yours.
And this word glitter patrol?
Just because your positive doesn't mean I'm talking about you. I need to stress that because I don't want any of my Dmama friends I love to ever feel anything other than love from me.
If you have ever degraded, belittled, invalidates, insulted, or anything of that nature, myself or other Dmoms for OUR approach, then yes I'm talking about you.
This post is kinda jumbled because I'm actually upset now.
I feel that our words are being twisted.
And our community divided.
Its not ok with me.
And it shouldn't be ok with you.
