And it's not just me that those Commercials annoy the Hell out of. The Man and Kiddos HATE those Commercials too because none of us looks or acts like that in the Reality of actually Living it. The Man says he Wishes he WAS that eternally determined Smiling TBI Guy or Disabled Veteran, but he's NOT. He Hates that Civilian Sponsors are being Solicited for the Proud Heroic Disabled Veterans like they're some 3rd World Child in Need because their Government isn't Honoring Earned Benefits they should be receiving to take care of them and their Families without relying upon Charity!
You see, nobody is being Represented accurately or in Truth, those they're Caring for in the Commercials are portrayed as Cheerful, Grateful and not at all difficult, uncooperative or unlovely in their Suffering or Torment. I have trouble Believing that picture represented, nobody is seeing the Keeping It Real parts of their Lives and Challenges on those Commercials... it's very Cleaned Up and Sanitized! Maybe they'd get more Donations if they showed the hard parts and people Keeping it 100% Real about what having to be Cared for and Caregiving is REALLY like? Maybe that would just be too much of a scary dose of Reality for the General Public, I dunno? Maybe it would be a, "Shit that could be ME one day!?!", wake-up Call to Joe Citizen. Hey, nobody in their right Mind wants to Believe that one day that COULD be them... either Dependent or in involuntary Caregiving Role out of necessity... or the very real fear the Loved One's ability to find Placement, or appropriate level of Care elsewhere would be questionable, impossible or far beyond one's means!
