When you’re eleven and constantly in the hospital, you become depressed.
When you’re twelve and realize that the reason that you hate the hospital is that you can’t bear to listen to the faltering beep of another person’s heartbeat in the next room, you develop a specific form of sympathy.
When you’re twelve and you already know what’s eventually going to kill you, you’ve experienced one of the hardest things you will ever have to in your life.  
When you’re thirteen just hoping to live to forty, your life seems just a little more valuable.  When you’re fourteen and realize that it’s too late to change anything, your life loses its value really fast.
Watching family members and friends with a disease you have and realizing that you will one day be them, or worse, is something I’d never wish on anyone.  I’d rather just let what happens happen, without dreading the future.  But i know too much now for that to be possible.  This is not a vanity post, but a morose, truthful one that took me three years to finally post.  Outwardly we’ll look fine, but inside we’re screaming from the pain.  Too many of my friends and my family have been limited by different forms of the same disease.  But I guarantee that no matter how hopeless the world seems, we’ll be the best fighters this generation has.

So I have this friend (boy) and he’s gay. He’s also one of the most amazing people I know. Such a positive person, always helping others…
So today, he was so excited because he was going to a party etc… But now (it’s 1am here) he posted this on his Facebook wall :
(I tried to translate this…

one kid said he wanted to line up all the gay kids and shoot them.

I hate it when people make surprise visits to my home. I absolutely hate it.

My home is where I allow myself to become as socially unacceptable as possible. Okay. It is where I will wear the oldest, rattiest t-shirt I have in my closet with a pair of leggings or shorts. It is the place where my hair is always kept in a huge bun right smack in the middle of my head. Okay. It is where I let my eyebrows go wild on the weeks/months that I don’t have school. It is where I will walk around looking like a goddamn mess. This is my home. And so help me God, I will castrate you right at the front door for showing up unannounced. For you, sir, are disturbing the peace. My peace.

YES this. THIS.  HA and when the people smile at how you look like crap.  where did manners go.
