Have you ever had "foot in mouth" disease? I've got a huge case of it.

I have commented on some things that I didn't have all the facts of, and I don't know where to start apologizing. I have sent 3 pm's and am just publicly apologizing for ALL my words. I haven't had the time to spend on here to research "it" all out as I normally do, and I was totally wrong in this case. I jumped to conclusions and became defensive in a situation that didn't include me. My comments on the "hostile birth mom" question were erroneous. Thank you ladies for your patience with me. I think I need to be "quick to listen & slow to speak" for a while. Thanks for understanding.

  • you rockGood for you. As least you are Woman enuff to admit that you were wrong and you said sorry. Then you go a step farther to ensure you won't do it again.

  • I'm sure everyone still loves you. We all say things that aren't the best thing ever now and again.

  • LOL! I thought at first that you were saying you had hand, foot, and mouth disease. I was feeling sorry for you! My kids both had that - very miserable. I didn't see the comments you are talking about, but I can assure you that you are still very loved by many. I'm sure that hasn't changed! ;-)

  • I think it is great that U can do this. It takes a lot of guts. I applaud your efforts. I can. Have the same problem. Over time I have acquired a "mute" button and a "tact" button. But I can still put my foot in my mouth with the best of them!

  • I don't think you said anything all that out of line pesonally. You made an easy mistake considering the situation and have said you are sorry. I find what you write to be pretty balanced and sensitive. Don't beat yourself up over one mistake
