“Never have a battle of wit with and unarmed person” This is one of my favorite quotes. Sadly I’ve been doing just that. No more as these witless people are not worth my time.

My MS is progressing more rapidly than I would like it to. And to me this is more important and my attention is needed in this area more than worrying about someone who just likes to start and keep fights going. This kind of toxic person is not needed in my life. I got rid of the toxic when I became ill and have no clue why I am allowing it back in.

My sister is in the for the fight of her life right now. She beat it once and now it has come back. This is what is important.  

Cheeky is dealing with serious health issues... this is what is important.

My Ruby girl is fighting daily to keep moving...this is what is important.

Our Yana is also in the fight of her life... this is what is important.

Mary’s husband Phillip is quite ill... this is what is important.

I hope I am not forgetting anyone, as you are all important to me.

People throw the racism comment out there when they have nothing intelligent to say. You want prejudice, try being in a wheelchair and see how you are treated. I’m not a racist, Annie is not a racist, Mary is not a racist, and the list could go on.

Calling someone a racist is racist. So, who has the problem.

Our World is in turmoil and instead of trying to fight to find the answers, people feel the need to keep bringing up the same thing over and over just for their own twisted fun.

Again, everyone, we need to pretend the couple of threads here are invisible as we are only being baited into keep the toxicity going.

So, let’s get back to what fab is about, our wonderful friendship and ignore the trolls. They are truly not worth our time or trouble!

Peace out! heart

    • Excellent post my beautiful brave friend (or bff for short).

      I am guilty at jumping into the fray on this nonsense....but I think I had enough sense to stop at one comment and I was heavily medicated...something about me and drugs makes my fingers get antsy and so then I get to typing away as if I’m actually having a conversation, kinda like I am doing right now...shhhhh...(that shhhh was for me)

      So anyway we should really practice more of the reflecting on the vitriolic barrage of hostility these individuals like to throw in the pot and simply put a lid on it, turn the flame down, let the shit stew cool and then toss it. heart

    • Totally agree Tracy! This is exactly what I felt yesterday and I do today.  These two are not worth our time and energy.  My energy is very low..and I know yours is too.  These people are so toxic and hate filled that there is no helping them...only God can do that and they themselves will have to WANT TO CHANGE.  

      I’m totally in agreement...let’s cast these two aside and move on with upbeat and positive subjects and even if they are not...at least we all know how to discuss without calling each other names.

      Thanks for your blog and your comments.  Now...everyone have a good day and let’s focus on what is really important...ourselves and our families...and our health.
      Love you all...heart

    • It is so easy and at times too tempting to want to jump in especially when our friends start getting attacked...but I think we can all agree that these two don’t deserve another minute of our time. Happy Thursday to all. heart

      Mary how is your husband? Cris how are you getting along?

    • Mz T very eloquent and heartfelt and why we have some folk who want to rain on the parade I have no idea .......
      I have been very busy and just been popping on and just now I’m sat with tears flowing at the kindness of the wonderful fabbers taking time out to see that Brianna is doing well etc
      this is the true essence of Fab40 not some troll and we should always remember this and not be distracted by the trolls

    • Well said.

      When people come here with ill intent and find it fun to just make trouble we can ignore them and elect not to post on their thread. As positive activity continues along its merry way, their post will be continuously pushed down further away from the front page and they will just go off into oblivion. estatic
