I have to take my hat off to Hadon and admit something.
First read Hadon's comment...
Comment from: hadonfield78
"Hadon is here (Sneeking in the door, with head hung down low) "Well, I certainly got my lumps on that one didnt I ?"
I didnt know that the comment upset you so. I wish you would have told me. I do apologize if it made you upset. The reason why I said what I said, was because you were talking in defeat when you said "I will still be a lump". I needed you to muster up the anger to fight, fight, fight. If I pissed you off enough to think about fighting, then I acheived what I had hoped to.
What makes me think that I can pass out mental medicine to someone in your situation ?? I have RA as well. I was diagnosed 5 years ago. And it takes all the energy I have to get out of bed every morning. I also have bulged discs in my neck which are tapping against my spinal cord, which causes me to lose feeling in my arms and legs. Which also provides for some killer migranes. But I dont give up. Why ?? Because I am 45, and I want another 55 years. Im going to live to be 100. Thats my goal. And Im not gonna let this stupid desease take me out of the game. But thats just how I feel about me.
I again apologize if I upset you. I hope that you will forgive me."
Not only are you forgiven...I truly hope you forgive me!
I did not know that you had RA. AND, I fully admit that it would have COMPLETELY changed how I took your comments!
I assumed (ok, there it is...ass u me, I know) that you were making your comments as a healthy guy who didn't have a clue.
You do have a clue and not only that you have RA! Well, knock me over with a feather!!!
If you had included a little post script that mentioned that, the whole tone with which I read your comment would have been completely different and I would have read the "get up and fight" you were intending for me to hear!
Thank you, forbeing gracious to a fault, as I used you as an example of what a HEALTHY person should not say! LOL
However, you may kick me in the butt and yell at me to get up and fight any day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You are a great guy!!!! And hopefully, they will find a cure for auto-immune disease and we will all live happily and healthily (is that a word?) into our 100's!!!
We can stand next to Willard on the Today Show! Of course, he will be a stuffed taxidermied Willard, but that is okay!
