Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Thanks, Joan, for your wonderful attitude even when you tell bad news - you make me so glad!

I was very diligent about having the mammos done which is why it was caught early. Now of course since the cancer, I have to have the diagnostic mammos every year without fail & I make sure it's done every May, with no delays.

Patricia, I am so glad you found yours early! That makes all the difference in the world. My doctor and I had a discussion of what would have been the outcome for my mother's generation and my grandmothers'. He said it would not have been detected until a lump had formed and it would be much more difficult to conquer.

Steph, the procedure used to hurt like the devil. Cruelty and torture. Now, with new technology, it is virtually painless. Not even uncomfortable. The biopsy was painless too; it hurt less than my diabetes pricks that I do routinely on my fingers. 

You go girl!

Ruth, we started out as a group of women who shared a common feeling the church abandoned us and we felt a need for ritual and spirituality. Starting with two of us, it quickly grew to a dozen. Since we meet in our homes, a dozen was just too big, so we split, and we grew, and split again, and repeated and repeated until we had little groups of six all over the city. The group I am in was much more interested in economics and politics than ritual, so we became an activist group and eventually became some form of atheists.

Yes Patricia I plan on calling and making an appointment soon. I really need to get a check up.

Your Wise Women group sounds great, Joan. I'm not familiar with this. It sounds Pagan.

Comment by Patricia on March 18, 2013 at 11:08pm

Never put it off Steph! None of us like going.

Mammo found mine as it never would have been felt until far too late, if at all. I had 2 very aggressive cancers, down deep next to my chest wall, but at least they were still stage one.

Joan you have a wonderful positive attitude. I am behind on getting my yearly checkup - planning on going soon. I have been putting it off. I just hate going.
