#5 of 9 statements from my 2008 pretend drive for a house seat.
- -“Any and every Medical Doctor who cares, diagnoses, cures and/or helps his/her patients be comfortable when no cure is found is worth more then any, executive, professional athlete, investor, lawyer, accountant, and rock/movie star.”-
I have the utmost respect for all caring Doctors who do good work.
It is very unfortunate that a couple of weeks ago I sent a Twitter message that was meant to be a compliment backfired. The Doctor took it as an insult.
She Tweeted that she was a “Practice Baby”. A term that I was not familiar before reading her Tweet, but well explained in her tweet. “Dr. Sandra Steingraber”
I instinctively wrote back “Practice makes Perfect“. Meaning from my point of view that regardless of her rough or different beginning she had achieved, in my mind, she reached the top position anyone on this planet could reach.
It was meant as a compliment. She quickly snapped back;
“Fuck you Gerald“
I was hurt by that comment. I had re-Tweeted a reply/explanation but by then she had already cut me off from reaching her.
Two others “liked” her reply. “Sandra O’Brian”, and “Courtney”. Both not knowing why I wrote those words.
If people are adopted, it is not their fault. It is not only the mother/parents fault but in my opinion their loss. Adoptees should not see this as a stigma. At only a few days old these newborns were already helping would be mothers.
If an adoptee had good adoptive parents then there should be no shame whatsoever.
It is what we are today and tomorrow that counts, not our past.
