We wanted to make sure to take our time with the third and final podcast~blogcast of the day.
The finale to the, "Really Good or... R-e-a-l-l-y Bad."
We both caught wind this afternoon with screenshots sent to us regarding immediate members of distant family not only enjoying the OG-Original Blog located on the Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign website:
But as well now having a blast enjoying this podcast~blogcast of, "Our Crazy Little Life" on a daily basis. Even so much so as taking the time to screenshot a picture of Eric dressed in one of many characters running from his many problems or just running in general...we're not sure which yet... now up for your viewing pleasure on distant family members public social media accounts. Poor Eric and far too long bang extensions is still just too darn funny! Hahahahahaha! Not only did distant family members screenshot a picture of Eric... someone they really don't even know since only speaking to him maybe 20 words over the past several years. But as well staking personal claim of characters that all us folks know... are just characters... that don't have names.
"But is this Good or Bad? That really is the question to many watching the circus come back into town time and time again... so to speak in slang. But in all actuality... the answer is very clear and should had been clear all along."
When distant family enjoy reading and watching honestly some of the most silly, goofy, outrageous and downright hilarious skits-videos and then screenshot photo clips of parts of the skits and in turn share them across social media and on the world wide web staking claims of the characters as if some type of ownership?.. characters that have no names. Consider that a GREAT thing because that great thing has reached out to many that know how to Google search by a photo and have now brought them as well to daily podcast~blogcast episodes filled with hours of laughter and plenty of smiles!
Who are we to stop any distant family from sharing the love and the laughter~
I guess distant family isn't so distance after all... especially when they're actually helping a website that will soon be assisting financial costs with continued medical treatments, outstanding medical bills... along with surgery.
Even after speaking to my mother... in which... we hardly have much of a relationship due to what we may both realized is a son-in-law of hers causing more problems by posting really hateful and in poor taste... inaccurate information as was told by a very unhappy paying client whom sent myself and Eric screenshots of the comments and of course Eric looking absolutely hilarious dressed in skit attire. Inaccurate comments that doesn't help any mother and daughter's strained relationship to even begin healing with such comments... slanderous comments... regarding those who are on government assistance. Or in my case... permanent disability which I have paid into since the very first hour I gained employment... up until the very last day I could no longer work. In which... let us all educate this son-in-law with the facts.
Permanent disability is not something to be taken lightly nor is it given freely by any means.
Permanent disability means that your treating physician or team of specialists have determined to the best of their medical ability per medical records of treating you over the years that it is not in your best interest... nor is it physically in your best interest to work or continue working on a long-term basis. A panel representing the government... Social Security, medical experts, Judiciary judge and attorneys hold a special court hearing to finalize their decision per deeming you are permanently disabled to the point of resulting in death.
Social Security and the medical experts take their time in obtaining every single medical record since the day you were born... in which... those thousands of records, over 10 boxes of medical records played a very important part in determining I had suffered from an autoimmune disorder since the day of birth. That piece of critical information most recently helped my current team of specialists figure out the final missing puzzle piece which was found due to records of myself as an infant taken to an emergency room setting and admitted with kidney complications that should have resulted in death.
The son-in-law's comments were not only slanderous to those who need and seek government assistance... disability... but as well it was a social media mockery and upmost foolery to both mother and father-in-law whom cared for that sick infant that worsened as a very sick adolescent and now progressed as an adult with health complications that has spiraled for decades... me.
After a very close and careful review by all social security experts and medical experts... they are able to determine by prior and existing medical records and ongoing medical problems... in my case that started from birth... if you are deemed as permanently disabled. If they find that the medical ailments will only get worse and progress over time ending and resulting in death... it is then that they deem you as permanently disabled.
For everyone who has sent us the screenshots... we are here to inform you that we did reach out to my parents today and let's just say making such a statement regarding their adult child that they began taking care of as a sick infant and then progressed into their child's adolescent years and beyond will not be taken lightly.
To those whom have reached out very concerned and most definitely disturbed reading such a comment about those on disability... government assistance... those who create videos which help in our case... to bide our time happily instead of sadly or frustrated due to continued progression of my health. To those who also are on temporary or permanent disability or are caring for a loved one on temporary or permanent disability or our clients of businesses that may have children that need special attention. (Although the son-in-law may have quickly taken down the comments off of public social media or hid them... the screenshots remain as we appreciate those whom took the time to send them to us.) We would like to apologize on behalf of my parents son-in-law whom made the comments and any other distant family members who took part in poking fun of those whom are disabled and need government assistance whether that be temporary or permanent disability.
What most do not know behind the scenes.. but those close to me do is that next week marks the start of many changes for myself and my spouse... Our Little Family.
I will bravely be getting myself ready to the best of my ability for emergency surgery in order to carefully reposition organs that have collapsed due to complications with my current health. I have also successfully turned over a prior denied temporary work permit through Social Security and currently working with a vocational expert which will help enable me and Eric to turn a podcast into a way to help with ongoing medical expenses that are in the tens of thousands of dollars and growing. Sure, I may have only gained a temporary work permit, but it's a start... a good start.
At the end of the day everything that you experience in life... Good and Bad... is a lesson.
Every Dark Cloud has a silver lining.
And every human being who doesn't act like their self is probably not acting like themselves so it's important to just smile and hand them over a Snickers.
Here's to the fire reignited Within~
To the deputy ... whom could relate to distant immediate family making a mockery of myself and my spouse while compassionately telling us the story regarding his own brother's brave battle with cancer... how he would create videos as a way to keep smiling and laughing even when others would turn the videos into a social media mockery. What an admirable thing doing your best to protect your brother so he could continue doing what he loved through out the remainder of his journey.
Thank you for sharing your story.
God bless you and your family.
