Offering Hope and Help to the Victims of ARD Worldwide
Bev's opinions on
the "happenings" in the world of ARD !
I am a believer that around every "gray cloud" that enters our lives, a “silver lining” can be found, if we just look for it!
I found one in the issues of some ARD support groups have elected to treat each other via their Internet dealings with one another, for a couple of them, and it was not condusive to the cause of ARD in a positive way. Non the less, it caused me to look at how we, the victims of ARD, relate to one another as we walk this new pathway since finding one another after so many years of walking that path alone. I will share my opinions and thoughts on what I see happening in some relationships between ARD sufferers themselves, as sharing this is a therapeutic way for me to get rid of things that I am saddened by. This is for me, and if anyone else elects to read my thoughts and opinions, so be it, but again I reinterate, that these are my thoughts and opinions reflected in all that I share in this web site and not ever do I expect anyone to share my views on life as I see it.
web sites to be linked here. Though they were not sites within the USA, they are important and equal, as are any
other ARD support site or any web sites that helps spread mutual awareness of these medical issues. THIS site is
an informational ARD site specifically, and it is our intention to link with as many ARD site that supports the few
pathways that offer support, education, awareness and assistance to one of the most suffering groups of people in
the world today, the victims of ARD and Endo, among other associated disorders! Must all ARD support sites be
under one code of “rules” to be affective or “acceptable? Is there no room for variety of opinions and material?
This sites support of links to others sites does not portray that those sites are in any way aligned with our agenda, no more then we are aligned with the agenda's expressed in those sites
of supporting other ARD sites is simple, the one "common" agenda of offering
the victims of ARD the
It would be an
injustice to the victims of ARD if all supporting web sites and groups
were the same, as to be different
When we see support groups take "sides" and not wiling to overcome issues to allow themslevs to participate in mutual support for one cause, the cuase they state they support! This behavior only serves to put a wedge in what could be a time when we, the victims of ARD, are trying to rise above behaviors we have been exposed to for many years and that contributed to our suffering! For years many within the medical arena were secretive, insulting, manipulating, and controlling and in far too many cases, deliberately withholding the truth of ARD as being the reasons for our suffering. These actions not only compounded our suffering of physical wounds, they bashed our very essence of being so that we were not able to cope with ARD issues let alone do anything to effectively help ourselves. To add insult to injury, they successfully kept us apart and alone in all that suffering. It cuts me deep when I think of my days of suffering that way, so sad and so alone.
It is for these memories that I have the drive to reach out and touch the lives of other victims of ARD, to right wrongs, to seek justice for injustices done to us and to change what I can change and by me pursuing these avenues, I heal myself from things the things I cannot change that happened to me. I will never stop my quest to do everything in my power that my heart tells me must to be done so that my fellow ARD sufferers might be spared from suffering the same indignities and trauma my walk with ARD was for me!
There is good news as well, as we did discover that there were in fact, MANY, within the medical/research community who had been and continue to, work to find resolutions for this most insidious affliction, the sad news was that they were not and still do not work in cooperation with one another, thus bottle-necking progress and possible cures! Lots of boats in the water, but to many rowing in different directions with some rowing with only one paddle while others make considerable progress, only to be caught up in a whirlpool called "government!"
We, the victims of ARD, have our work cut out for us if we intend to institute changes and secure ways in which to help ourselves. Now that we are aware that these issues exist and how they directly impact our lives each and every day, how can we not do something about it? In my opinion, there is only one answer to that questions...
WHO leads and WHO follows?
ALL victims of ARD
ALL victims of ARD must work together if we are to the goals within
ALL victims of ARD must be listened to; ALL victims of ARD must be heard,
I will be honest and steadfast to my quest to change what I can for the
cause of ARD, no matter the consequences to myself!
Who am I to shirk the commitment I made to serve my Lord
when before me walked one who paid the ultimate
sacrifice in his service to his Lord!
"One man scorned and covered with scars, with his last ounce of
courage and breath, continued to serve his Lord!"
