AOL took it upon themselves to put advertising at the top of all AOL journals without permission. If I had wanted to advertise, I would have written in a Blog that pays for advertising space in a journal.
I was insulted when I saw the adds flashing above my words about Peggy and they feel intrusive.
It made me think of Alzheimer's disease and the way it intruded it's self into Peggy's life.
She didn't ask for Alzheimer's to come into her mind, it just came and took over.
She wouldn't have wanted it to cover her brain with it's on agenda but it did.
Peggy is now a walking billboard for Alzheimer's disease, an advertisement for what it can do to a mind.
I am angry about this intrusive move into my space by AOL. I pay money to AOL every month for the privilege of using my journal space as I see fit.
This journal was written to express my questions, my grief, my pain and my sense of loss.
It is written to explain how a young vibrant woman could end up in a nursing home, not knowing who she is and remembering her life.
This journal was not meant to be a flashing advertising bill board for AOL.
I need to be angry at someone for the intrusion of Alzheimer's disease into my sister's life, into my life. I need to be angry that AOL has intruded my journal with it's agenda into my journal space.
So, AOL will get my stored up anger!
I'm sure that a giant like AOL is shaking in their corporate boots at the thought that I am angry about being used in this manner.
How dare they use my sister and my journey to advertise!
I had permission to start this journal about Watching My Sister..Disappear
AOL did not ask for my permission to place these adds at the top of my journal.
Peggy cannot voice her opinion about anything any longer and I have been trying to be her voice.
AOL...Hear this.....At this point in my journal writing, you have become the definition of intrusion.
INTRUSION n. interruption, forced entrance, trespass, intervention, meddling, encroachment, invasion, overstepping, transgression, nose-in, horn-in, muscle-in; see also INTERFERENCE.
You, AOL crept into my space and wrote your agenda above my words.
Just like Alzheimer's disease crept into Peggy's mind, took her free will away with it's intrusion into her life.
Hey Peggy, we still have our spunk!
I Love You Today, Peggy!
