Hang With Friends

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.

Sk8eycat, it doesn't sound like you have Alzheimer's.  I'm 49 and do the exact same sh*t you do.....forgetting words, forgetting what I went into a different room to do, etc.  Twice in recent years I've started the washing machine only to discover at the end of the wash cycle that I forget to put the clothes in.

How stressed are you Sk8eycat? Stress could cause all that - as I experienced...

Comment by sk8eycat on December 9, 2013 at 12:54pm

I meant to comment on "memory problems" last night, and forgot to do it. I forget words that I know I've known for years...usually in the middle of a conversation, or when I'm trying to write something.  It's maddening, and frightening.

Or sometimes I'll go into another room (usually the kitchen) and forget what I went there for. 

Is it age?  I'm terrified of developing Alzheimer's even though nobody on either side of my family has ever had anything like it. 

I try to do as many crossword puzzles as I have time for...especially the "cryptic" (British-style) ones.  That's supposed to keep the brain/memory tuned up, but I still forget names and technical words, and have to stop and try to dig them up.

Frustrating.

sk8eycat, Oh yes! great song by Eric Idle and documentary by Brian Cox. 

"Earth is significant to those of us who live here, and we need to take care of it, but thinking we are the center of all creation is totally beyond ignorant and arrogant."

~ sk8eycat

Is it not strange so many people foul our planet and give no thought of consequences. One person, alone, can make little difference. Many people with a common concern can bring about change.

ROFL, booklover. That FSM argument is great. Sorry about not knowing where you live. I forget a lot these days.

Someone asked about my mother's maiden name and I had to stop and think a while.
