People are constantly trying to discourage me from my mission to do some good in this world in the worst subject areas. I don’t really know what motivates the haters to want things to be so horrible. I don’t know why they can’t be fine with seeing someone try to help people and stand up for what is actually right instead of popular, self-serving, or the multitude of other reasons people justify their actions. I can’t be discouraged for more than a day. I’m just going to go ahead and let you know that now so you can save some time and energy. Use that time and energy to look around my site and see if you can find a reason to be a better person. I know you won’t, but I can always try.

I’ve been through more than a dozen emergency surgeries, so many broken bones I lost count, and endless painful, or at the very least, unpleasant procedures and treatments. I’ve lost people I thought I couldn’t survive without, both by choice and to death. I’ve battled my body to keep my children alive, and have had two 8-inch incisions that cut through every muscle and nerve in my stomach to give birth to them. I’ve wished for death because the pain was unbearable, both physical and emotional.

The point?

There is nothing you can say to me that will make me budge on this subject. I WILL help make this world better, even if it’s in the smallest ways. Find something better to do with your time. If you must rant, here you go- this is your page to do so.
