* Rant warning! Read no further if you think I don't get angry. As much as I try to stay positive - IT gets the better of me- I have to get & let it out.
From time to time I am compelled to draw the same cartoon with a twist. WHY?
Because it is the same bullshit - different day. I have drawn this one far too many times.
I thank GOD when people say "Storm looks great! "
Yes he does!! ***BEAMING***
He eats healthy - and he is the one that has his dad and I also eating better.
He drinks very little alcohol - perhaps a beer from time to time.
He works out at he gym. He is determined NOT to let his bone disease get the better of him. This however does not mean he is not in pain. He is never really out
With his medicine
- he able to control it where it is NOT controlling him.
I don't know if you get that. I don't care.
He works hard to look good and keep his body as healthy as he can.
It does not mean his bone disease in not progressing. It is. We know it. He knows it.
and we don't give a f*ck if you know it or not.. (oops control)
LOOK around you.
If you were able to match all the numbers with the people in the cartoon above, then I am afraid one of us has failed. Me as the cartoonist or you as a person?
I'll leave that for you to judge...
When I drew the above cartoon I thought of each person with love. I did not have in my mind that anyone of them did/was anything. Just people.
Because, quite frankly - I have no f*cking clue who does what, and neither do you!
Hello!? A murderer? If we knew what they looked like...
I'm pretty sure there would be fewer murderers!!!
So please stop.
Think - AM I Judging this person with out really understanding??
I AM far from perfect... I tell this ^ to my own mind all the time and I believe it is working. I will not give up.
AT the end of the day I have to judge myself.
You do not know what someone is dealing with by looking at them, think about it.
Then again - with the expection of some seriously ill. They look like they are dying. So thank you GOD my son looks great! I want to shout it to the world! And you know why! Plant and prayer;-) IMO.
On top of everything else do you think people who are sick, living with a serious condition, NEED you to say - "Well you don't look sick!?" `WTF?
YES there are fakers. They will be judged soon enough. We can't stop them or prevent them. Then there are people like my son, who wishes every single day, more than anything they were not in the situtation that they are but they try to rise above it -every day!
We have always told Storm you will grow up to be what ever you want!
You have to believe!
So... every time some thoughtless F%$! says- "you dont' look sick" with a 'snarky smirk' on their face - I want to smack them. *Sigh*
I apologize. Please forgive my momentary loss of control.
I AM a MOTHER - I LOVE my SON.
We know what he has lived with and continues to deal with daily. Be thankful you do not. You or your children.
WHO are you to make the ASSumtion my son is fine because 'he doesn't look sick'?
Or anyone for that matter? Have you walked in their shoes? Have you experienced what they experience?
WHO are you to tell us, as a family what we can or can not use to heal his pain and make our all lives happier?
WHO ARE YOU?!
