I came home from work tonight, tired and so sick of MEAN people only to find my inbox full and comments on other sites about how rude I am and yet it was totally misunderstood.
I commented on a persons blog about how I didn't understand how they didn't qualify for a specific medicaid waiver. Their son is on a trach. This waiver is for technology (trach) dependant kids.
I was not in any way saying that I felt this mother had LIED to others about their dire need to make ends meet with a medically fragile child. I was in no way ASKING or DEMANDING that she "prove" to me or any one else. I was HONESTLY shocked that they didn't qualify. The state only requires that the child have no assets. As a three year old, he definitely doesn't have a porshe.
The comment was taken that I was being rude. I was not being rude. When I was attacked about my comment ( 23 comments later) I defended myself. I was also told I left "rude anonymous " comments on another women's blog. I did leave a comment on a blog AFTER she made fun of short buses and I spent the night in tears over it and I told her I thought it was rude. That was over 2 months ago. 2 months.
Yet she still bashed me on this other women's site.
I received 57 emails total of women telling me I was rude, I purposely hurt my child, didn't have enough faith to "cure" him of his ailments.
I was told I didn't understand how this family could possibly have medical debt.
I was told I was uncompassionate and a horrible person.
I am NOT a mean person. I am not a rude person. I have learned to stand up for myself and fight for my child.
I try so hard to help as many people as I can.
I would NEVER ever purposely hurt Tyler. EVER. I did not cause the blunt trauma to his shunt to cause it to break. I did not WANT to have a sick child. I didn't do anything to try and have a child with a disability so that people would feel sorry for me. I do not hurt him. I LOVE him and only want what is best for him.
I don't care if you don't like me. But PLEASE don't' ever think that I would HONESTLY think a mother isn't doing all she can to help her child. If you really think that, then you don't know me.
Please don't talk about me to other people if you are not willing to privately email me and tell me your concerns even after I have emailed and apologized to you.
