I’ll only mention 1 “name” in the following story…
so G comes home one day and says, “i got a call from person and a good point was brought up, i suppose…maybe u shouldn’t go on the boatride since we aren’t all going…suppose something were to happen on the boat…getting u off may be a problem…” now, i never gave this any thought, but it is a valid point…i don’t put myself in situations that i know i (or my friends) may not be able to handle, but something like this? no….never thought that IF something were to happen on the boat….then she said, “it’s ur call – whatever u decide to do is fine. I asked person why they called me and not u, but there was no real reason, anyway u’ll get a call tonite” i said to myself, “self…what are the odds of something happening on the boat; it’s a valid point….hmmm” we continued talking and laughed at a few things and moved on…i continued looking for tickets.
Now…i cyah tell a lie…my reaction surprised me – i’m not usually one to get pissed off at alot of things, but i really was pissed that day. I think it was the “we” in the text message that did it because i was thinking “what the???!!!???” I’M the one who’s sick not anyone else, so why not discuss with me – i didn’t care who the “WE” was. I also got pissed because I have MS and i can’t help it nor can i do a whole lot about it so again – discuss with ME not WE 0 i felt like decisions were being made for me!!! Well i didn’t call the person until about 2 days later – after i’d cooled down, we talked about it and they tried to justify it, but quite frankly, i wasn’t interested. we have moved on from the incident and i hope that i don’t ever have to be in a situation like that again because it really wasn’t a good feeling – at least not for me.
this is not to make anyone feel bad or anything like that, the person already knows how i felt and as usual i’m just telling my MS story.
