Hi everyone! That was a fast week wasn't it?
First of all thank you so much for all of your support and well wishes! My treatment is going strong but as many of you warned me, the Herxheimer reaction is a tough battle. I am optimistic though -- I keep putting one foot in front of the other. Yesterday, I visited my best friend Ellie. She is battling ALS and starring death straight in the eye which really puts things in perspective, doesn't it?
When I watched today's episode, I had a very hard time relating. It makes me sad to see such turmoil and disrespect in my new group of friends, especially knowing they are all coming from a place of hurt and they are having difficulty communicating. I am really hoping that one day they are ready to start living in the moment and move on from all these past issues.
Please know that my observations come from a place of love and kindness. My goal is to give constructive criticism and hopefully not seem judgmental. So here it goes. . .
Paul is understandably upset and should defend his wife, but under no circumstance is it acceptable for a man to use such strong language with the intent of intimidating a woman. Brandi should have never said what she said because, even if it is the truth, it's a family matter that should have been respected. We have all agreed that Brandi should pause before speaking -- she even admits that herself. But, like I said last week, you will see in the upcoming episodes that she does try and make numerous attempts to apologize.
