23. I hope you will reconsider...
how you would treat a loved one who might be sick or dying..I can say that because I am there! My family is not treating me with "kid gloves" and if they were, I would tell them that they were being disrespectful.
I thoroughly enjoy a robust argument, and my family is noted for some of the best of these. I would be so depressed if I was treated differently due to my illness and I actually thrive on discussions that allow me to state my position no matter who gets pissed off.

I have not changed just because some illness is fucking with me, and if you just want to be a hypocrite by being kind to me, then you are truly not my friend. I am not being critical with you....just honest!
