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.

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

Morning all. I'm on my way to my last day of jury duty. Free at last, free at last, thank the FSM, I'm free at last.

Always happy to have new faces around these parts (as they used to say in the old western movies). Welcome Larry and Bertold.

And as for your news, Mindy, I couldn't be happier! What a relief.

Good Friday and weekend to all!

I'm so glad you got good news, Mindy!

Good to know! Thanks! :)
Comment by Patricia yesterday

Yeah, there's enough info on the site that you don't even have to buy anything to get a good idea of what's what. I did purchase the book & got the download of the free digital copy, before knowing I didn't really have to. Oh well.

Patricia, I will see if it helps my reflux. That would be great. If it could stop all nausea, I would never stray from the diet even once. I can even handle pain better than the kind of nausea I used to have.
Comment by Patricia yesterday

I am gradually getting into that way of eating because I've had the reflux under good control for so many years, & I don't want to drastically change anything. It's the colitis I want to go after, but the way I've been eating for years has settled the reflux/hiatal hernia, etc., almost into non-existence. I still believe the chemo is what started the colitis, & the dr. said it was very possible.

Comment by Nick Bottom yesterday

Larry—There are a few book clubs on this site. Not much recent activity, but I just joined and would enjoy discussing books and whatnot with anyone who is interested. I read all types of fiction (except romance trash) as well as nonfiction and poetry. 

I am no good with Skype, though, since I am deaf and it is pretty hard to read other people's lips over Skype. Meditation is something I do every day at yoga class—not spiritual stuff of course, but it is a great way to relieve physical and mental stress.

Comment by booklover yesterday
I haven't, Joan, but I'm not ruling it out.
Patricia, I am going to try your diet that you suggested. Thank you!
