Re: [IP] A Long Vent On Frustrating Pump Misconceptions

People can be very , very silly and it their own ignorance that is showing.
My epileptic cousin died in the bath about three years ago, and when we
called my dad's other brother to tell him about beth, he said..."Oh, is that
the one who was...y'know....different?"....


As re; the pump everybody says "oooh, you got it BAD, huh? that you need a
pump?" Again, GGGGRRRRRR!!!!!!
   For the most part though, my dad and BF all contributed to the old pump
when I had no ins...so they know. They see how much better off I am with it.
   Unfortunately some people are really blind, and others are selectively
