When I wrote my 100 Things post, I got a comment from some douche who said that it was the most self-centered thing he'd ever read. The comment is long gone since it was back on Blogspot, but I always thought that was hilarious; isn't the whole point of a 100 Things post to talk about yourself? I thought that was the dumbest comment anyone could leave on someone's blog.
Boy, today that one got topped.
Poor Sally is tired of reading about my miscarriage. Since she pays good money to come here and read quality content, I'd better change my blog to make it more what she wants to read. Oh no, wait, she pays jack squat to read this site, so maybe she doesn't get a say in it.
But apparently I need to consider you guys, my readers. You don't want to hear about dead babies and heartache; you come here to find political commentary that you can find hundreds of other places. I should've spent my time researching current events and writing about that instead of sitting on the toilet bleeding for a week. Gosh, how rude I've been in not thinking of you, my readers and what you want me to say.
Because lord knows you couldn't find commentary on Obama and McCain anywhere else for the past week. How boorish of me to be wrapped up in my dead baby and all. A thousand apologies.
I mean, seriously, are you kidding me with this, Sally? If you don't like my blog content, click fucking elsewhere. Don't leave a snide-ass comment about how you don't like what I have to say.
You're the one who needs to get over yourself, lady.
And learn to spell basic words, like "a lot."
I wish you had been honest and told her what you reeely, reely thought! ;D
Sometimes I wish we could put those peoples faces on so everyone would know who they are.

I just dropped by and found out about your loss. I'm so sorry. I don't know if it helps you to know or not, but a strange woman you don't know and will probably never meet is crying over her keyboard again feeling brokenhearted for you. Don't let idiots like Sally get to you. Some people are incapable of compassion. There's obviously something shockingly wrong with her, something missing in her psyche, that allows her to make such horrid, selfish comments.Sally is a pathetic excuse for a human being. You have good reason to be outraged by her comments, but try and remember she not a friend or even an acquaintance. She's just an anonymous, pathetic twit.

Poor Sally...she's had such a perfect, blessed life that she can't comprehend others' suffering and loss.
Either that, or she has issues she can't face in herself. Either way, I offer her my prayers.
And Sarah, you definitely have my prayers. You are a wonderful person to share what you have gone through to help others understand. And understand, too, that you are not alone. For each person who can't 'get it', there are others who do, far too well. God bless.

I have to say, this pisses me off! I have been reading your blog for quite a while now, and my favorite part of your work is how incredibly genuine you are. But, in reality, it doesn't matter what my favorite part of your blog is, nor does it matter what Sally desires to read. Although I am a new blogger myself, I already get this freeing kind of feeling when I post. I can write about anything I want! And so can you Sarah... F that B : )
PS. I was praying for you every step of the way with the baby. I too cried when I saw that you had miscarried. I am still praying : )

What a bitch. And this is a blog for you. it's your outlet. She can go fuck herself for such an idiotic thing to say.

It is obvious from your writing that you are a steely strong, compassionate, passionate, amazing person. And, as someone else has mentioned, your authenticity and fearless truth-telling is what brings people back here (it's why I kept poking my head in!).
My mother would have had some things to say to Sally accompanied by her favorite hand gesture.
Keep being real--whether it's about politics, the military, marriage, or this tremendous blow you've been dealt. Sally is one tiny voice in the crowd.

Sally sucks. Write on, Sarah!

Aside from the fact that this is YOUR blog and that you don't have to consider ANYBODY else when you post here if you don't want to...why is she speaking for your friends? What kind of friend tells you to get over a miserable, emotional experience, and go back to entertaining THEM?
I'd hate to see what she says to her family if that's the way she treats her 'friends'

She does have a lot of fucking nerve. Screw Sally.
