It was a little over two years ago when my mother came up with her latest idea… Mesh Awareness Day. I remember that morning like so many others… her chattering away nonstop while I dove in a cup of coffee trying my best to have a slow quiet wake up. After years of this you would wonder how we live together… the secret is in a talent called “selective hearing.”
So the morning of the great revelation of “Mesh Awareness Day” started like any other when in my drone state there were words that snapped me awake… “I want to do a Mesh Awareness Day each year.” You want…. WHAT??? It was bad enough this mesh crap was the new way of life with damn near NO conversations with my mother and any other living being on the planet going anywhere without it… but now she wanted to “invent” a holiday? What the hell?
This had to be the craziest idea my mother had come up with… and yet… as she went on about it and how important it was to make others aware of the dangers of mesh surgeries… it really did make a lot of sense. Not that I believed such a thing would catch on. I mean seriously… how ridiculous is it for someone to just invent a holiday and place it on the calendar? It couldn’t be that easy… could it?
Flash forward to today… one day before my mother’s created mesh holiday… and apparently it can be just that easy. So easy in fact that even the most notorious haters of hers have “adopted” her holiday as a real world thing. Including… smurf… JANE, the “MAM” people… women in groups all over the place sharing these things as well as the Twitter twits… and I’m sure there are others I just haven’t discovered yet. I’m not sure whether to be offended or just laugh my ass off at the whole thing. Considering my mom gets the last laugh as imitation is the sincerest form of flattery I’ll go with the latter. My mom’s holiday is now famous.
For those of you new to the mesh world (sadly since no one should be here)… here’s some things you should know. Not everyone has the best intentions to help you help yourself get well. There are folks like Jane Akre who sell their souls and websites to doctors that they “recommend” and loan companies you can use to “fix” yourself for a tidy profit for everyone involved. There are narcissistic smurfs like Aaron Horton jumping up and down writing crazy shit completely unrelated to mesh and wanting you to brand your ass with her logo so she can realize the fame she never had in high school. Then there are a dozen or so mesh women who are the NCBs (Nasty Christian Bitches) who use bible quotes along with belittling anyone who opposes their love for Jane, Smurf and the entire profiteering club.
One such NCB was running a smear party the last few days. Lana Keeton. Now… I will admit my views do not inspire bad people to suddenly realize what assholes they are. The truth is these bad people will NEVER get a clue… it’s just who they are and they justify their actions in bible verses hiding behind a shield of worship for their salvation. Most religious people are good people… who don’t advertise their beliefs and lead good lives. For the NCB however… advertising one’s religion is akin to displaying a penis in public. It’s all well and good to have one but the world does not need to see how “big” yours is.
Idiot Keeton (she chose her own name forgive me it’s not creative enough) was posting all sorts of crap on her page publicly denouncing my mother and getting her groupies all worked up (to be featured in a separate post). These people don’t seem to realize one very important thing I keep saying over and over… mesh world is SMALL. Word gets around quick. Now if you have something mean to say at least make it about the truth. These liars and the lies they spread… getting old quick. A made-up holiday might be adopted as real… but you can’t make lies stick as truth anytime soon. I spent the day they did this repairing our septic system and snagging screenshots of all the nasty things they were saying. A fitting combination really… shit with shit for a shitty shit day.
For the NCBs I do know… who all like to bitch that I blog about them… you are your own worst enemy. The things you say far surpass anything I could come up with. It’s especially trashy of all of you to blame my views on my mother… who by the way has helped countless women even with all your nastiness going on in the background. So to honor just how horrible you all are… your words will be seen forever… no deleting the ugly parts of yourself and pretending it didn’t happen like on Facebook… starting with Lana’s words on my blog when she was upset about her “disaster recovery fundraiser” being seen on Mesh Avenger. It’s unfortunate that mesh women are all painted as crazy lunatics due to the actions of a few like this.
What was it that began the sadistic comments about my mom? It started with this fundraiser that I found disturbing. Women were contacting me… some didn’t even think it could be her doing it and her name might have been hijacked for the purpose of raising $11,000. No such luck. Not only was it really Idiot Lana asking for money… she was pretty pissed off about my views of it on Mesh Avenger.
You might wonder why I found this as distasteful at best. The truth is it didn’t ring altogether of truth. Problem #1… formaldehyde is not odorless. It’s colorless and has a distant odor similar to pickles. Problem #2… while formaldehyde is a gas it’s not used on building materials as a gas… it is placed in a solution of liquid instead. The smell coming from building products including flooring is actually “off-gassing” of the formaldehyde. As time goes by and you open your windows to ventilate it out the smell goes away. Formaldehyde, while having a strong smell in wood flooring products, will not “settle” or “float” off the floor to contaminate any of your belongings without direct physical contact. While humans can absorb formaldehyde through their skin in a factory utilizing it to produce building products… the odds of your belongings absorbing it from a neighbors wood flooring are slim to none.
So… throwing away all your belongings wasn’t done because of the formaldehyde from a neighbors floor off-gassing.
There are more issues with her statements… including the fact she can afford to live in a hotel but doesn’t have money for a new place. The last time I checked… a hotel was freaking expensive. A friend is staying in Los Angeles for a more severe surgery and it’s costing her $6,000 for the month… and no she didn’t whine and throw up a gofundme to pay for it.
As for the “wrecked” car… you have to ask just why the insurance company didn’t help with rental car costs. That brings up an important question… who was at fault in Lana’s car accident? Insurance companies don’t pay anything to those at fault… not even a rental. So why should anyone else pay for your mistakes if the car insurance company won’t? And once again if you had the money for a rental for a month I’m pretty sure you could afford a secondhand car somewhere. It may not be a new Rolls Royce but it would get you by until you could afford something better.
Before you post up a fundraiser to help you with things… try to remember the mesh world is full of these. We’re all sick to death of seeing them… because you don’t ask your friends and family for help… instead you focus on other mesh victims to “help” you. That is the exact reason so many groups have banned these fundraisers from being put up… because there were so many of them they basically filled up the group page with them. If you truly need help… your best course of action is to facilitate helping yourself in your local community. One woman has a grandson with a serious illness and did just that with a dinner and local businesses to come together for a benefit. Helping starts at home… and that’s local… not a gofundme with bogus illnesses and blaming your neighbors flooring.
I banned Idiot Lana from my page after she repeatedly posted insults. When I ban people their posts all “vanish” from view but are still there… and these are those posts. You can see for yourself why I didn’t have time for this bullshit on septic repair day.
