One of my friends posted a story on FB that I found terribly disturbing. This woman died when she was wrapping presents for people, yet no one noticed that she just disappeared? Were those people really people she should have been wrapping presents for? The feature that is on the page doesn’t really make sense to me – it seems like they were just telling their impressions of the documentary, and maybe I’m just used to the way American documentaries are shot, but if they don’t have even one interview with a family member…and then again, who wants to admit that they didn’t check in on their family member for 3 years? It is frightening. Who is really looking out for you? There’s something about our culture that makes sharing lots of things on social media encouraged, yet being extremely lonely is completely acceptable. It’s a way of life.
I’m still kinda upset with what happened on Monday (I removed that post) the thing that concerns me is that I don’t feel terribly sorry, I’m just really angry. Anger does not serve me in this case. More than likely, people wont learn anything about MS unless they feel compelled to. I know this, but it’s been 10 years, and I think I’m just tired of my family’s ignorance. I don’t feel like winking at it right now, I’m sure I’ll get over it. I have to.
I think it is time to break out the aromatherapy.
