Catching Up


I wanted to say sorry to the few readers that I have for the down time recently. We had a bit of tragedy in our lives. My partner, Jeff, had an accident and severely broke his leg. He had to spend 4 days in the hospital, and it was not a good stay. First of all, he had to have reconstructive surgery on his leg, complete with steel rods, screws and plates. As if that wasn't bad enough, we had to deal with a heaping dose of homophobia, while in the hospital. These backwoods rednecks acted as if a gay couple had never been in this hospital before. We spent our 17th anniversary in there, and a shitty doctor had the audacity to tell me that I "wasn't Jeff's family", therefore I wasn't privy to any information about his condition. For those of you who know me, you must know how this pissed me off. I have told several friends that mine and Jeff's world is small, and filled with only awesome people. I haven't had to deal with this mentality in a long time, when it happens, it is like a slap in the face, and I damned sure didn't like it. Jeff's surgeon even make comments about us being "democrats", like we are fucking idiots and don't know what he was alluding to. Well, we are back at home now, and Jeff is slowly making some progress, so hopefully I can continue to update Vitamin Burger more frequently. Don't think that we will take this lying down, we already have some calls into some lawyers, and some Gay Rights groups, hopefully justice will be served.

  1. That just makes me so fucking angry. I am so sorry you had to deal with all that bullshit on top of the injury itself. You want me to come down there and straighten them out? If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy...

  3. Oh, this is horrible news all around! I hope your mancub gets better soon and that you two kick some redneck ass. This makes me sad beyond words. These kinds of things should never happen. Best of luck with you and your man.
