Okay, this a total rant, but something that I feel very strongly about. Some might disagree, but I truly do not feel like the word Sickler is an empowering word.

Warrior, I understand your point. The person who says infected is ignorant. We are not infected. Words matter. We must choose our words carefully. Keep up the good work.

Amen!! Who the heck came up with the term sickler anyways? I swear if those those that don't live with the disease had to feel a crisis one time they wouldn't know what to do. Warriors indeed we are!!!!

Yep...my sentiments exactly!

The "infected" ????? I am by far offended by that also; and I absolutely hate the term "sickler" also. Those are such negative and disturbing labels. We need to call it what it is stop this madness.
