Missy Elliott: Graves' disease didn't slow me down
If you haven’t seen Missy Elliott out and about over the past three years, it’s because you didn’t know where to look.
The hip-hop artist has released a statement clarifying that while she does suffer from the autoimmune disorder Graves' disease, it didn’t cause her to press pause on her career.
Elliott reveled earlier that she was diagnosed with the disease, which affects the thyroid, in 2008, and saw it impact her motor skills and lead to hair loss, bulging eyes, a rapid heart rate and dizzy spells.
And yet even with those symptoms, the 39-year-old says she worked through it.
“There have been some inaccuracies reported in regards to my diagnosis with Grave’s Disease, so I wanted to clear things up,” she says in a statement. “I was diagnosed with Grave’s Disease about three years ago but it really hasn’t slowed me down at all.”
The “Work It” artist goes on to check off all the things she’s been up to: “I rocked my performance on VH1 Hip Hop Honors’ tribute to Timbaland last year. I’ve written and produced a bunch of Grammy-nominated, #1 hits for artists like Keyshia Cole, Monica and Jasmine Sullivan. I toured the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.”
All of that, and she says she’s been working on her new album.
“I feel great,” she assures fans. “Under my doctor’s supervision, I’ve been off medication for about a year and I’m completely managing the condition [through] diet and exercise.”

About this blog
Our daily cheat-sheet for breaking celebrity news, Hollywood buzz and your pop-culture obsessions.
I thought this article would have comments about missy elliot and her graves disease, which i also have and i think she is an inspiration because i almost gave up... but instead i find a thread of comments that are completely unrelated and bickering back and forth.. i dont know any of you, but you all sound like children... if you arent discussing the topic, find an open forum to chat or make a blog page to post useless crap about how you study whatever, your going shopping or other useless facts about your life that i didnt need to know...
@Trelle, don't know if you would be back on this blog, but you have a great summer too and good luck with school.
That's good. Now you go and behave yourself young man. We do not anymore misbehaving from you because when panties get in a bunch, its hard to get them untangled and then they don't fit right. Have a great summer yourself.
Guys you did help me to calm down and focus on the positive things in life so thanks.I'm a pretty decent percussionist, I write songs,I'm good in most sports I excel in baseball and swimming.As I said my family and love helping other people.I'm starting school in August were I'm majoring in culinary arts at a school on the east coast,I'm getting excited about it.Well I've got to bounce again thanks guys everybody enjoy summer.
Eh, no big. Most of us are adults here, even though some of us, including me, tend not to act like it occasionally. Best to let it roll off our backs like water off a ducks. Still, sometimes a little tension gets the blood boiling and the creative juices flowing. Just gotta try not to get too personal, if you can manage. I failed on that a time or three.
@dave- I tried to be nice as much as I could once I started feelin' bad. Should have held back more. @fernace-hope you're not angry. All yall (Peace, BV, Mad, mr ed, fern,dave,snagglepuss) have a good a.m and great day! Sorry for the problems on here, but oh so glad to entertain!
@charlie crack: i started to bounce on terrell, too, but i thought that showing a little kindness instead of my usual slams might make a difference. Did it work? I dunno. But i figured i would try.
I do want to point out one sad fact of life. There are a lot of people out there who see celebrities as role models by which to live their own lives. Not the smartest thing, granted. That being said, this article about missy may be just the thing for some sufferers of the disease to see that a mostly normal life is possible. I do agree that the ordinary everyday people who do everyday things while dealing with this disease are the real heroes, but there are those who see celebs above ordinary people, and if they can deal, anybody can. Weird, but true.
@ SallyMae, did you read the article?It specifically stated thatMissy was only speaking up because of misconceptions of her conition.. She just wanted to clarify, not make herself a posterchild. She has alsocarried on with life & work, without acting the martyr, as is evident in the fact that she was diagnosed in 08' & we're just hearing this now! I admire Missy because she very no nonsense, & not egod out like some people with no talent,who take xrays of their butts for entertainment! Shout out to dave nelson ,on that 1! Anyway, back to the previously scheduled program, the charlie crack, dave nelson,Terell T Show! Y'all are funny,cute&...... entertaining!!
@Amanda you clill out missy. We all had a very bad weekend on marquee missy elliott blog. temper flared and everyone panties were in a bunch so you just don't start your s*!t because we got it all straighten out and I just got out of a coma so we don't wany anymore trouble. You hear that girl? good so be off with you and go and get a laugh someplace else..this site is closed
Oh wow there is so much going on on here I thought it was about Missy Elliott's illness a lot of people are very full of them selves wow! I need to find something funny d"?n I miss that WEINER.
@BV- concentrate on class....feel better girl. Alls well....no worries
@Charlie, sorry to hear about your grandfather. My dad is in the early stages and its hard. Makes me want to cry when I think of it. Anyway, just got to class and this blog is giving me a headache with all the drama. Glad you and Terlle are cool now. @Mr. Ed, yes I'm in a mellow mood today. Fighting with my bf and don't want to deal with it on here. Have a great night all.
Oops. 2nd one is correcto.

@TerellT- you're all good with me cuz. No hard feelin's. We all gota survive brotha. No matter. I take care of my 87yr old grandfather w/ dementia in my house on my dollar. Take him to the veterans hospital frequently. Go to school, and deal with a tempermental redhead at home (she's my rock, deserves much credit for helping me with school. I don't have my mom. Her mom is like mine). You do what you can too and we do the best we can. Hey but for real....don't put comments up about suicide, that's real...%100. If you feel that way see somebody....on the cool! Take it light partna'
Oh @peace that's nice to know, the biting thing. Just don't bite too hard. I like more a little nibble kind of bite..lol. I myself are a bit lazy myself today like vixen so i have not much to say and even typing hurts..lmao
@Charlie-dude i have ur back but i told you was to ignore this guy. I hope you have some mob wives on dvd to go home to watch..lol. You need to rub one out from all the stress marquee caused you lately..lol. @vixen-mellow today luv. You didn't put up much of a fight. The weather made you a lazy kitty today I'm guessing..lol. Peace all
It kills me when celebrities come out and say that they have some "serious" health issues and that's why they have or have not done certain things in the past few months or years. I too was diagnosed with Graves Disease. I didn't put my life on hold, I didn't hide anywhere and I sure as hell didn't make it sound like it was the end of the world or my life. If anyone looks up the definition of Graves disease, it doesn't say "you may die from it"
Actually, due to the high levels of hormone in my system, before diagnosis, I have some permanent heart valve damage and will probably one day die from it. I spent many days with a resting pulse of 190 while urgent care shook it's head and fed me valium. Finally my pulse peaked at 246 and I was greeted in the ER with an IV that stopped my heart completely. One shock and it bounced back to normal rate. Beta blockers were administered in large doses as soon as the lab results confirmed Grave's. I was strongly advised by my ER doctors and my endocrinologist that YES, in fact, you can die from complications of Grave's. I have the cardiac damage to prove it.
Grave's affects every patient differently. Some are barely affected, while others, like myself, almost code in the lobby and then get to wonder if the next palpitation will be "the one". I have been in and out of remission from Grave's for 4 years now. I'm through. I plan on breaking my moral oath and drinking the radioactive Iodine "cool aid" in 2 weeks. In my mind, the cancer risk isn't great enough anymore to live like this. I just want it to be over. From the crazy pulse, to the heat intolerance, to the muscle atrophy, this is an easy disease to hate. Strong willed or not, it can destroy your life for a period of time, as all autoimmune diseases do.
I'm a mid 30's guy. Before this I thought it was a "chicks only" disease, it's not. Guys if your heart races for no reason, all the time, and a little summer heat feels like being under a broiler, get a T3, T4, TSH test. It can save your life.
I've read very few comments here that are actually about the article. That's sad. I hope my story can help someone, as Missy Elliot's doesn't seem to be taken too seriously here.
CharlieCrack Sorry I came off as f*#*ed from the start my mom's always told us there's no excuse for being rude.She's right as usual lol.You said your brother is an Army Airborne Ranger I see we have something in common,my grandfather was an Airborne JumpMaster out of Fort Bragg N.C.at the end of WW2 and Korea thirty years of service.So we have something in common. Thanks for your support after I was being a pain you to Dave.
@Charlie, no problem. I was ignoring him because I can't be bothered with this nut case. Just ignore him and let him say whatever he wants. He is the one that's looking like an azz and he is not worth spiting on. @Peace, yes shopping was fun 🙂 . Catch up with you guys during the week.
Leave Terlle alone. He can't help it that he fell and hit his head when he was a kid. He has to wear a helmet now at all times because he just sits there and bangs is enormous head against a brick wall. He tries to be good, he really tries but his brain is all smushy from all the banging and he also was big at sniffing paint, glue and whatever else he can find in his dad's basement. Please be kind to him. He is a very sick person and I'm afraid they will come and take him away soon.
Thank you @BV. Thought I was alone with this kid bumpin' his gums again....
Lmao!! Sad to be you. You come on here and jump down people throats and you tell us to get a life..lol. You are on marquee blog doing the same thing we are doing, just you are spreading your hate which mean you should get a life yourself you bipolar piece of $h!t. @Charlie and the others, ignore this dumb a$z, he means sh!t. He is just a dumb fool that bullies people behind a computer but I sure he won't have the b@ll$ to say it to the person's face. Thanks for the laugh jackazz. Go play in traffic.
I think you sound very smart, handsome, and moral. Bet your taken, the good guys always are!
And @ @fakecharliecrack uhhhh...I'm at a 4yr school that has a single programs that give over $3mill in scholarships a year to help people that want to better themselves and help the COMMUNITY...But sorry, no community college here braniac...but somone is not under qualified if they get the proper training from trade/community school so go away with your kite and try to fly it "Drrrrrr ddddduh".
There are thousands of individuals who are diagnosed with thyroid-related disease every year. My problem is that here it is presented as some heroic effort by this celebrity to overcome it. These diseases really impact daily living with symptoms described in the article, but all the afflicted students, parents, working adults etc., have to adjust to the illness and carry on with their lives still working, going to school, raising children and having relationships in spite of the disease. So she has Graves disease...she has done what the other thousands and thousands have done and come out on the other end. My hero is the mother, student or working professional who can overcome the illness and continue doing what they were doing before...not the hip hop artist, celebrity, sports star etc.
Ummm@ @fake charlie crack. Uh....um....why are you so scared of my grades dude??? I would expect anyone to say they are smart. I don't want anyone to say they're stupid...self depreciation is unhealthy bro...I have a life, a good one. And I will continue to go to bat for @BV, and did you not read that @dave nelson and I mended fences?? Anyone that is good people and can have humor and be light on here I cut for....you not so much...eat a bowl of cereal in your whitie tighties while your mom makes your bed....deuces!
LoLoLoL.... Ya'll are funny. Thanks for the laughs! 🙂
You sound upset. Still angry you got diseases? Maybe some anti-biotics would help.
Grave's Disease is really not that bad, even though it can be. I've "suffered" from it for two years. You take a radioactive iodine pill or have surgery and you're "cured", although you'll more then likely have to take thyroid replacement hormones for the rest of your life. It sucks, but there are worse things in the world. Must we have information on every little health quirk that millions of people deal with everyday? Get OVER it and move on!
@Terell T- Hey dude... really.. stop the hate...your family is great for what they do,like the person above stated. Have fun on here bro.. no hard feelings. Yeah, I go to school and do my thing. You do yours. Nobody is downing you our trying to make you feel insignificant. I'm glad you can bench whatever, but like I said "Get your weight up". I'm a 225 pound 6 foot 3 inch cornfed country boy so that's not much to me but atleast you think you're healthy. @dave nelson gave you some good tips, also try depreciation and max out then decrease all the way until you can't even lift the bar...then go eat good and do it again. Get your cardio in too though... and the martial arts is always good, been doin it since I was a 3yrs and I'm a second degree blackbelt. I was turned onto it by my brother who is a Navy SEAL and has been an Army Airborne Ranger since he was 19yrs. So needless to say, while I am not impressed by your stats you do try....I'm just on another level homie....
She a bug eyed doookie eating fool.
How is she still so fat? When I was diagnosed with Graves I weighed 123lbs at 5'7
Like you know anything. STFU !
Michelle Bachmann puts her dirty buttplugs in the dishwasher.
So do I.
Dude, lighten up. So cool what your family and you do! Take a chill pill, we all like a good laugh from trolls, but c'mon man. We all can get along, you know? Let us start fresh, ok? Have fun on Marquee blogs!look forward to you making me laugh!
I bet yo mama pulled down the little po boys pants and b play wif day weiners.
Who are you b;*#:es to talk about hate you don't know you think you're the only m***+r f*?#;rs that care about anything my family has always helped people my mom goes to poor areas every day all summer to feed kids breakfast and lunch,my brothers and I help out twice a week.It's most of the kids don't thank us most of the mothers don't even thank us that's alright.
Last night I feed yo mama some of my doookie.
Terlla i don't understand why so much hate for some people on a blog
Sorry Charlie Crack. I told you I was his sister. I'm sorry about that! You were amazing, though! Thanks! Today I smile!
Look fool get your lame azz to that dumb class that you seem to think so much of and that broad wasn't any cousin and you didn't bang my sister because I don't have one, you was banging your inflatable Barbi you were probably so f****ng high off weed and Patron that thought you were banging ho.
I was bangin yo mamas fatazz.
Yo mama hole b drippin maggut shyt.
Yo daddy like it up hib skinny butt.
@ the truth: i am no expert on this subject, but if i were to guess, i would say the flow they talk about is the steady rhythmic flow of words in the composition. I may be wrong about that, so dont hold me to it. @ terrell: i am surprised you cannot bench more than that. How long have you been lifting weights? I have fifteen pounds on you, and i bench over 400 regularly. Then again, i have been lifting weights for over twenty years. Keep it up, but remember it is not all about bulk. Slow steady reps of smaller amounts build strength. Build hand and wrist strength by using the squeeze and hold method on a racquetball. Do everyday chores with weights on ankles and wrists to improve speed. You probably already know all this, but it may help someone who doesnt. Martial arts is also an excellent way to improve strength, dexterity, breathing technique, focus, and discipline. Relinquishing soapbox now. Lol
@TerellToughGuy....i'd throw you chump! I told you relax, said all was good...but you know what b!tch,you keep talkin'. Well while you were playin' with your cousin in the basement I was bangin' your sister while watching Mary J Blige on the awards show....I do study scaliwag...I study how stupid you are....get your weight up, study some jiu jitsu or somethin before you go runnin' your mouth like that and someone whoop you one day.
I see somebody was busy this morning daaang they made me say that I was a messed up azz that's alright it was kinda funny,creative to say the least except the thing about (fatboy)I'm 6'2 235lbs. I can bench press about 290lbs.easy.You read that Charlie Crack.The reason I didn't keep f*/(*ng with you last night I had a little honey that came over to check out my grandmothers' basement,I showed her the basement all night long.What did you do study oh that's right you don't have to do you Mr.4.O.
Good am all! BV, how was your shopping spree? Glad to see you & Dave are on the mend. Lol ! I have to say, I agree w/Mrs. Saliano's comment! I hope we see more of her, too! Check back later. Good day to ya!
I hate to say this, at least this sickness caused some annoying music to be postponed. I will never understand how talking is considered a flow. That's all she ever does on a track. I hope Missy gets better but please keep writing music but do not touch any microphones.
@Dave Nelson, sure no problem. I'm sorry myself. I'm no saint myself and I can be a bit hot temper when ready..lol. I hope you get out of your bad mood soon. I hate it when I get in those moods. Horns, claws and fangs comes out on me..lol. Have a great day. Have a great week everyone ~ xoxo
@ bv ya know what? I have been in an ill mood for over a week and i took some of that out on you. I apologize and ask that we try to start over, if you are up for it. I will try to be more anec when i say things so there are less misunderstandings. As for most of the rest, i was pretty busy all day and was not able to get your messages. Hope you get this. You all have a great week too. @ terrell it doesnt matter what kind of personality you have, or what issues you have, we will do our jobs as professionals. If you ever need help, and i am around, i will do my level best to make sure you pull through with little or no damage, if i can. Take care, terrell.
Nobody knows the trouble the see, no body knows my sorrows. No body knows how unhappy i am when i look in the mirror. i'm big an fat and i have no friends. I bark at moving cars bc no body would hang out with me. I smell and i pass really bad gas and not even my dog can stand me.
My mother is a ho that's why my daddy left us and I am so distrubed and unhappy. I'm sorry but I can't help that I am so mean. I know I should kill myself but I haven't decided as yet how to do it.
I'm not a regular but I do have to say that I am quite entertained by some of these blogs. It's nice to see bloggers connecting with each other. Some comments are not great but I always like to know who is doing what. Today I kept coming back to this blog to get an update on what you bloggers were up to. I thought it was nice to see people who became friends just from these things, coming together to chat, maybe because it was a slow, lazy sunday. Anyway, what do I know. I'm up there in age so this is like a soap opera to me and it can be more entertaining than TV itself. It's nice to have friends on the internet, even if you will never get to meet that person face to face. God bless.
Terell you are one sad person. I honestly feel bad for you to hate on people you don't even know. Sad world you live in to judge people you don't even know. Once can only wonder what you say about people you know and one has to wonder what a sad and lonely world you live in. Good night all and have a great week, even you terell.
Charliecrack you ain't nothing go hang yourself by the balls with your stethoscope you p*##?

@BV- you too dear...be good!
Mastermind, Mr. Ed, Charlie, Peace, Ben, Mad ...have a good night and a great week
You are a judgmental fck. These are blogs. These ppl live in different states. For you to make a comment like that, about ppl you don't even know, makes you a jelaous and bitter idiot that doesn't know to relax and have fun. You are an azz and it's not the first time you came on here and attacked these ppl. You are one sick and demented azzh0le. You are the reason the world it is today. Go shoot up your drugs and die from it you piece of sh!t
Feel sorry for me? That's rich coming from you geniuses you're just o bunch of loose freaks.
@mad- you too, stay cool bro! Be good....
Aww I feel sorry for you. It must be sad to be you. Good night everyone!
That's a good one but I think they've already done tha nasty many times, that's why they think every one that comments about them wants them.I don't want any of those hoes.
Woo wee terell is all mad. Maybe he is mad because he had to sniff his mother's butt all day. Poor terelli has no friends, no wonder he is bitter 🙁 sooo sooo sad not to have friends
Well said, and Mastermind what are you anyway a Transformer 3 reject I'll bet your thirteen.

@mr.ed- i'm sorry. 🙁 I should'nt. I'll stop...you are totally right. I feel bad for the troll.
Oh Mr.Ed, be careful, I bite back! LOL C-ya all tomorrow!
Terell gave me lyme disease with her flea infested crotch.
@Charlie my man, why are you letting this troll upset you? I have never seen you like this before. I like the raid comment. Oh oh..RAID! I almost went to type Mr. Raid for my name..lol. So Vixen...hmm hmm gf, you want to take me outside and show me Jesus 🙂 . You can show me Jesus anytime darling. I'm sure I would love a beating from you. @Peace-since Vixen is giving me a hard time, how about you taking a business trip to NYC and show Mr. Ed some loving? Write it off as a business expense. I promise I won't bite unles you want me to..lol. Mr. Ed is out for the night. Have a enjoyable evening/night everyone.
She put that thing down flipped it and reversed it!
Props to our wonderful Missy E!
Poof*** I just sprayed Raid on you...now go under the cabinet or play on the freeway...quit buggin' me. I've got work to do.
I'm not in your face though bro...know why? If I was your new name would be "Terell Teeth Be Missin". So, your relevant where?
Hey terell tiny nuts...i'm still here boo boo!
Hey BV, I've been working out of town, NEVER again, way too much stress! I'm back on normal schedules again, woo-hoo! TTYL
@Terell T: I don't see any of these people doing anything wrong. You came on here and it seems that it p!$sed you off that people are able to make friends on blogs and you might have a problem doing so, making any kind of friends in general. You should mind our own business and learn how to have fun. You come off as the pot/crack smoking idiot because your true colors showed. Get a life and learn how to mingle and have fun.
@Billy the kid- that's funny, just like he's a lil baby.
@Terell you need to take Gas X to rid of yourself your gas pains. Gas pains can make you grumpy and mean.
Hey@charlie azz crack
get out my face you nerd okay you and your buddies are different people ooooh you're so cool. I've been to school got a job to big fluppin' deal. Who gives a rats tail.
Hey Charlie crack pipe up his a*# sthu you are a different person from your little playmates, who cares you are a bunch of spoiled brats that think that you matter.
Terell is just mad because she is having problems taking a poo. Lets be nice to her and don't make her upset.
@peace-thanks for the motivation! @BV- 🙁 sorry, I should be a good boy. To all yall though (@peace,BV,mad,fernace,mr ed) seriously....I apologize for my outburst. I shouldn't let an internet thug make me that mad. Bigger fish to fry and cold ones to drink. Have a good rest of your weekend yall...back to homework.
@Mr. Ed, don't make me have to take outside and show you who Jesus is ..lol. @Charlie Crack..lol you are on a role weekend. @Peace, glad to see you are well. How come you are so busy here lately?
Wow! Gone another week & look at all the fun I missed! BV & Charlie, keep up the good work at school, I for one am proud of you! Mad, Mr.Ed, Ted, hope w/e was good! Fernace, you seem ok. Dave, still trying to figure you out, but, you have made me lol. Good day!
Hey @Terell Tea Bag On His Nose....I think you're a idiot. I am only charlie crack biiiotch! No reason to hide my name you're just ashamed to be stupid....
CharlieCrack I think that you and (all of your friends) are the same weirdo with multiple personalities,I wonder if anyone else agrees with me.
People this is not facebook
Correct, if it were then Uncle Creepyberg would be selling our info to corporations in the name of "openness"
Vixen is a fallen angel..lol. I'll have to take out my big shaft and show her the way back to heaven. I'm sure she will hear heavenly angels singing when it happens and cool off that hot little temper of hers..lol. Just joking w/you girl.
I like my grandmothers'basement it's tight, she even let's me play my drums down there.
Yeah. Ok. You don't like jokes? Arrogant? How about you stop being mad at us and move out of grandma's basement and do something with yourself. Loser. We could leave you laying in the street like a warzone, but we are good human beings.
Pot for recreation and medicinal use is illegal in most states isn't it? Don't worry about me save your damned selves you arrogant sons of b/?...s.
Don't hate on @dave nelson. Sometimes rambling is good, generates thoughts/interaction with what's going on in our minds at a faster pace. As for the jokes, laugh a little bro!
(Sorry for unfinished post, typing from my phone)
You talk too much. Nobody is impressed by your rambling. Your jokes sucks, so please refrain from attempting to do so in the future. I however, will use them to help me fall asleep at night which I thank you for. Good day all!
@terell t- you could only be so lucky to have one of @dave nelson's THREE girls @dave as a first responder or myself help you (I'd bet you all three are knockout beautiful). Even if you are angry at life, we would still do our job. I read a quote once "If a college student is smoking pot and still has straight A's get them quick". Not that I do, but shows the power of mind over matter. Scientific fact . But, anyway when you're hurt or need us we will be there. I'll let @dave nelsons girls tend to you while I cover the legal aspect and translate your chart to the doctors/attorneys so the hospital doesn't "use you for parts" and hopefully save your life. Be happy dude, don't fling judgement.

I am a cw. moooooooooo.
@dave nelson- you were misunderstood completely. I still commend you on your volunteer work. True man. Don't be angry with us or think that someone's attacking you. I apologize again for my post, you are a good person. Those that talk before thinking should duck, I sometimes am in that boat. Have a good day/weekend.
Missy Elliott I love you so much you have inspired me for many years. Because of your inspiration and my mom who is a strong intelligent woman like you I will be attending a "real" University in the fall Howard.
Thank you Mia
kinda figured that last one would be denied. i pointed out specific names used for different races and said they should be removed from all languages. the moderator rejected it. i can understand the reluctance to post that. i do not undertand how the other person got theirs posted, though.
I really wish people would stop using derogatory words when referring to other races. I do not care what race you are, that kind of thing is wrong. Including the ones i have heard flung at whites. Do not call someone a race based insulting name unless you like being called by such names yourself. I highly doubt anyone likes that. We are the human race above all else.
I don't want any of you pot smoking idiots for my nurse no matter what your gpa is,I'm not impressed in the least by any of you "friends".
I can tell you're young, and hope that with time you'll see that what people do on their own time typically doesn't affect them in the short-term. With that said, thank the young stoner who nurses you and be scared of the 40 year old standing over when you need their help.
Allow me to clear up one more thing. There are those of you who think i am an a~hole. To be perfectly honest, i am. I have no problem with people who think that way of me. I would hope that people notice that i only go after those who speak before thinking. The ones who think before speaking are not subject to my criticism. Mad would be one of those, as mad has shown quite a bit of intelligence in his posts. I ask that anyone who misunderstands anything i post ask me what i meant rather than criticize me for the wrong thing. If i make my meaning clear, and you still attack me, i will declare open season and retaliate heavily, as you have seen. And people do suck sometimes. I suck sometimes, because i am not perfect.
@charlie. Thank you for getting that it was a joke. However, i would be very wrong if i did not clear up one thing. In some states, EMT and first responder are the same thing. while i am fully trained and certified in first aid, cpr, and a few other rescue techniques, i am by no means an EMT. Those wonderful people are better trained and far more qualified in life saving than i could ever hope to be. What i did was more or less that of a somewhat skilled good samaritan. A volunteer that was on call to get to accidents in heavy traffic or gridlock until the real heroes could get there. I worked the 405 on the way to and from work, along with several others. Just one of many who tried to help a little.
Oh yeah. . .we also love you. YOU are also ok ! We hope your weekend and everyones will be the greatest ever! Thank you for posting here! All of you are TOO GREAT!
Dave you should not say bad things about people we love. We dont care what color their skin or what the look like. Peace, BV, SunsineGirl are angels and we love them. Dobt matter what they post or what you post. They are awesome and we are luck to even get to read things they post.
For the comment on how black people stink, I guess you were born smelling like Calgon soap. And your Sh!t smells like cherry pie a la mode. You ignorant fool! There is not a race,creed or color in the human species that azz doesn't stink if they don't wash it. Now, I could say how some of you smell like wet dogs when you come in from the rain. But I'm not gonna say that, you didn't hear it from me. Peace, I'm out!!!
@BV- have fun shopping! Get somethin' to make you happy....have a good one yall!
@Charlie: You, Mad, Mr. Ed and a few other bloggers on here are all ok in my book. Going shopping now 🙂
Well it's good to hear she didn't just fall off the face of the planet. Looking forward to her next hit.
get to that http://www.SUPERSONIC.US.COM
You are commended for your work/efforts as EMT @dave nelson! Here, here! Once again, I apologize. Not only that, the girls through nursing shows you're a true man.
@dave nelson- Sorry to make you feel bad, you were joking. I apologize.
Some of you need to go back to school and learn about things like citing examples and using perspective. As for the comment i made about people sucking, it was because there was not a single comment on this article, while the one about kim ks butt had over five hundred. And charlie, i put three women through nursing school, an honorable and often thankless profession. I used to be a first responder in california. The state i live in now does not recognize first responders as a valid or even legal deal. I miss doing that.
@mr ed- be good bro! Have a good weekend! You're the man....@mad- you have a good one too....you also are awesome
@Dave- i read the comment that beautiful vixen is referring to. That was the same blog you were on fighting with kevin and bragging about being 250 lbs of muscles. Your comment on that blog made it sound like you hate white people, after all it was white people that came and took the land from the indians. You are an native american indian, one can see why you hate us so but we never did anything to you. @Vixen-have a great weekend girl. You as well Charlie the man.
Damn, wondered where she went, shame she's sick but good that she's keeping it stabilized and able to handle it in a positive way.
You're good in my book @BV! Have a good weekend. Be good!
@Charlie Crack, It seems that I p!s$ed someone off..lol. All that ranting from someone that came on here and said people suck, trying to make himself better than everyone else. I guess he included himself when he said that because he doesn't know how to turn the other cheek..lol. Have a great weekend Charlie 🙂
According to People, the disease first began affecting her motor skills, and then led to symptoms such as dizziness, mood swings, increased heart rate, bulging eyes, hair loss and lumps in her throat. Elliot has been undergoing radiation and medication, which has helped her to regain her strength and control http://bit.ly/iyEvni
And while you get up and talk sh!t all day on blogs, others of us have to go to school and finish up degrees with 4.0gpa's and go to work...therefore, WE actually have the brains to have your fake procedure. But, while studying Legal Nursing I have never heard of it.
And that's why your pathetic self is on Marquee Blogs defending a person named "Beautiful Vixen?" Who here really needs a life? If dave nelson needs a life, then you need professional help and then a life when you're done with that. Getting a 4.0 gpa is nothing if you're graduating from a community college.
@dave nelson- look dude..anyone who posts over and over one after the other ranting all the time has to find a life....go to mommy's bookshelf and read something or take a nap after your snack...brat! No reason to get so serious then type like you are talking to an audience. Shut your trap, leave beautiful vixen alone and find your cabinet to crawl under. Idiot!
@beautiful vixen- I know I slept yesterday afternoon so was up even though work early today. They gave us the last 2 fridays of summer class off. I'm really glad to hear you are kickin' @$$ in classes..let's get it done girlie! Whatever music you like, you are my bud! Just like the others....but pardon me for a second, I don't like how this @ dave nelson character "yelled" at ya'....
And yes. I personally came up with the name for that procedure. I figured so many people needed it that it should have a medically oriented name. Now if i could just find a qualified surgeon that will offer free services to the government...
Sorry for yelling folks, but that woman is in dire need of a cranialcolonectomy. Not familiar with that? It happens to be the procedure where you have your head surgically removed from your butt.
@beautiful vixen: you are one clueless individual. I hate repeating myself, but apparently your dunce cap covered your eyes last time. I NEVER SAID I HATE WHITE PEOPLE. I SAID THE WHITES BACK THEN DID THINGS THAT MADE WHITES THE MOST HATED RACE ON THE PLANET TODAY. IT IS A SHAME THAT A SELECT FEW WERE ABLE TO RUIN THE IMAGE OF THEIR WHOLE RACE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THOSE AROUND NOW HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ACTIONS OF THE ONES IN THE PAST. Was that nice and clear for you? Granted, there are those even today that still do bad things, and agree with the ideas of those from back then, but, they are now just a sad minority. White people, like all races, are essentially good people. They just have a bad rap in this day and age. Ok?
ive been wondering where missy went off to, im glad to hear shes been keeping busy. cant wait to hear your new music too!!..
And yes Charlie, I do like some of Missy's music even though I'm a heavy metal/rock chick. Godsmack is my fav :). Enjoy your weekend...off to bed for me.
Hi there Charlie Crack 🙂 what are you doing up so late..lol.? How is school? I have to say I'm doing great so far and I'm kicking a$z!
God bless you Missy! "beep beep who's got the keys to my jeep...vroom".
More power to Missy "misdemeanor" Elliot. I've been a fan since SupaDupa Fly, when it was her,Timbaland & Magoo . Aaliyah & Damon Dash was in that crew, too, all young & up & coming! Now she's a household name & I'm glad she's doing well in spite of this illness. Looking forward to another badass Missy joint, soon! You Go, Gurrll!!!
@Dave, Yeah..this is coming from someone who hates white people. Have a nice weekend.
My butt is bigger than hers.
How about a x-ray to prove it....LOL!!!!
Now, here is a good article about a celebrity who has a genulne illness and has managed to stay positive and work through it. Yet not one other soul has made a comment. People suck. My hat goes off to this lady for setting such a good example.
