Kim she is the WORST. If you ever want a giggle read GOMI (get off my internets) about her. A real piece of work, that one.
I disagree that Facebook is insensitive, BTW. I have seen tons of kindness and empathy and beauty on facebook. Its a network of friends, after all, isn't it? After I broke my hip I had to hide some running sights/groups that I "like" ~ when I could not even walk it was painful to me to see posts about running, which was a passion of mine. That wasn't because facebook or running fans were insensitive or unkind, it was simply because I was hurting and trying to come to terms with a great loss and great pain in my personal life. So I protected myself. However, I still head up our local chapter of "Moms run this town" and provide people with running and race info, I support my friends who are running races, and I celebrate their victories with them. I love hearing about their running on facebook. And if a friend who wasn't a runner posted a "Just signed up for a marathon!" prank I wouldn't call them insensitive because I had lost the ability to run. They were just making a joke. Just because I can't run or lost one of my true passions in life doesn't mean that their joke was intended to be hurtful, of course they weren't thinking of me and my loss when they posted ~ they were just trying to be funny.
I visited her blog. You have to pay to read her posts. Super classy.

Or let our friends know what is up and that we can't handle seeing or hearing certain things. The world will not protect us. We have to do that ourselves.
I personally think the use of a stillborn image is horrible and defeats the point.
I often 'hide' images and posts on facebook. I have one friend in particular who posts pictures of half naked pics of women to 'inspire' her in her weight lifting challenge. I hate those pics, but wouldnt expect her to stop posting them just for me. I know thats not the same thing, but that hide post option is very handy for these situations.
Pay to read her blog? Whatever. I'm not paying to read your thoughts lady.
