I AM A HEART BULLY: LET ME IN, MOTHERFUCKER, I’M JUST TRYING TO LOVE YOU

Hi,

So, I fucked up. This blog was supposed to end with me writing to you about my best friend and how geniously talented and revolutionary they are, but I was really tired and confused and disheartened at the end of my project. I also realized I could have gone to Seattle to see my best friend perform with Pedestrian Deposit–whose performances multiple people I really trust were really blown away by last year–instead of wasting so much of our time, money, and energy seeing this shitty band everyone refuses to acknowledge aren’t very interesting!

My house is currently full of secret messages my best friend wrote me hidden deep inside of post-it pads when they visited that I have uncovered since.

The cool thing is that as soon as I am able to afford a proper blog domain, which will be addressed COMEAWAYWITHEMD.COM, and not be shot through with disgusting ads that make you wanna die, run away, or disappear, I am going to finally write about my best friend and their incredible life. (It’s going to be part of my practice for my book, to have my first interview be with someone I already know better than probably anyone else. They are trying to conduct interviews, too, so we are practicing on each other.)

BUT FOR THE TIME BEING, SOMETHING YOU CAN DO, AND I REALLY ENTHUSIASTICALLY ENCOURAGE THIS, IS READ MY BEST FRIEND IN THEIR OWN WORDS! RIGHT FUCKING NOW!

I am very happy to have been identified here as a heart bully, my partner of the last 3.5 years concurs, and it is also really hard for my best friend to communicate how much they struggle, so I am extremely proud of them for articulating all of the compounded challenges that make their particular battle with Lyme so completely fucking awful. They also do a great job of showing how our medical system consistently fails the most marginalized among us. Please give it your full attention.

Love,

EMD

This is the most beautiful and supportive and inspiring person I know.
