I don't know where I stand on this whole Pepe/Gina issue. A huge part of me wants to believe she is who she says she is. I want to think that someone would not fraud a world like this and claim they are as sick as she is. I admit, when I first started keeping track of her blog I was suspicious. Things just didn't "feel" right. But I kept my thoughts to myself or to a very few close friends. Then she recieved her transplant and I was hopeful she was real, it felt real to me. But now I am back to where I was previously...do I believe or do I not? We have chatted with her in chat and Q (Paul) also. I donated money to her Wii fund. Was it worth it? I hope I didn't send money to someone who did not need it. I hope that she is truly Gina and has CF and has had a double lung tx. Not because I want someone to go through all this suffering but because I don't want to believe there are people out there that would do such an unimaginable thing. Pepe is the reason many CFers were kicked off of cf.com. They stood up for her and were banned (the way they stood up got them banned). I hope with all my heart that these people were not banned for absolutely no reason. Many of us followed suit because of the way things were handled, I dont't regret leaving. However, I will regret some of the things I thought about some people on that site because of things that they had said. Perhaps they were right in their thinking and we were all wrong? Will I loose some friends from this blog? Perhaps, but if so then oh well. I have read many many blogs written about this, others opinions, what others have found. I am still up in the air.
I do not know whether to believe Pepe and ignore the other posts/blogs or whether to believe the other blogs and not her. I need proof to believe Pepe, the other blogs have given proof she may be a fake. Please Pepe, show us proof that you are REAL.
read for yourself if you want:
Pepe's blog is no longer active and neither is Paul's. Both blogs have to invite their readers to view it. Because of this I have deleted their blogs from my blogs list. Gina has also deleted her facebook profile. I was friend's with her, now it is gone. To me that makes it seem like she is at fault.
I don't think that Q has anything really to do with this. He may have been getting bad info from Gina, who knows. I stand behind Q still until I am told that he is in on the scam if there is one.
I hope this all comes to a head eventually and soon. The CF world has so many issues already, why add any more to it. We suffer enough there is no reason for us to suffer because we have be decieved.
