after reading my sister's post this morning, i was ready to go out to cali and dropkick her boss back to his home country. how can people be so stupid? bean is the best person at that place and to even say anything that makes her feel bad about her seizures when you don't know anything about them just makes me mad. not to mention that it's not really legal or ethical for him to talk about it anyway. that's what the ada is for. i know not everyone has a mom and a sister with neurological disorders, so some people don't think about what they are saying and how it can affect someone...but everyone should have common sense or manners. especially adults that are in a supervisor position in a business. just because she doesn't have grand mal seizures doesn't mean she can do her job when she's having seizures. most people would not be able to deal if they had to have epilepsy or ms. they don't understand them, they're ignorant about them, and a lot of times they say really stupid things as a result. good gosh, get off of facebook, your game, or away from the tv for 10 minutes and google something worth learning about. ok, i'll quit ranting now. most of the people who read my blog are more intelligent than the people that make these mistakes. most of you actually know my mom and my sister and know what both of them deal with in their brains. you probably know that i rarely discuss my sister's epilepsy or my mom's ms, too. but when someone is that insensitive to my little sister, i get mad. and since i'm here, and she's way out there...there's not much i can do.
i'm a Christian, wife, mom to the most awesome kid...ever, daughter, sister, texan, teacher, survivor of my grandparents :), niece, cousin, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law, individual that was probably born in the wrong time. i live in a too-big for me house with my husband and our son and some people think i'm spoiled because my mom cleans our house. but, actually, i was spoiled way before that! i teach 4th grade ela and texas history...yes, that means the dreaded staar test! i like being just a little too weird for people around here, taking pictures, modpodging everything, shopping, and music!
