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.

Joan, can you use anything like an aloe vera gel for your skin?

CHEESY! ;)

AWESOME Joan!  Not about the weariness and tissues hurting, obviously, but SO glad you are done and free!!!!

Symphony of Science - Secret of the Stars

Cold, windy, clear skies, a beautiful autumn day! No chemo, no radiation, I'm free! Feel great although weary. My tissues hurt like blazes, literally, and I am healing. Ruth, you and I can just sit back, take our leisure, and heal; without feeling guilty!

Cool Ruth!  I have never heard of computer controlled anesthesia!  You are having to do exactly what my son had to do 3 weeks ago, when he had 3 impacted Wisdom teeth out.  He was put totally under.  His 4th Wisdom tooth never grew.

Ruth, time for all those wonderful fall soups and chowders for the next two weeks.  Glad everything went well. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 29, 2013 at 4:25pm

Thanks, everyone for your concern. Tthe surgery was far easier than I'd feared. After the topical anesthesia, the surgeon used computer controlled anesthesia. The computer makes sure the anesthesia flow is slow and steady. Later the traditional injections, but not all at once. *sigh of relief* It was as pain free as one could imagine. (Horray!)

Now I'm on ice packs every half hour, no gym, antibiotics four times a day, Naproxen sodium, yucky mouth washes, no hot food or beverages. I'm also on totally soft food for two weeks. The antibiotic-caused diarrhea is already starting to kick in.  :(  Oh well. The tooth will be worth it.

Nice flowers, Joan.

Will we get to see your new hairdo, Chris?

Funny drawings, Patricia.

Glad you are alright Chris!  I hope we hear from Ian soon.  Ruth,  I know dental surgery is no fun.  I will be thinking of you and I hope it goes smoothly and you heal fast!  Funny billboard Patricia. :)  My husband and I are going to a lawyer today to have a will made.  We are stupid in that we have never had one!  Even when our children were minors!  We are usually SO responsible, and this is one area we failed.  It will be very simple now. 

Have a good day friends!~ Mindy

Thank you, Carl and Joan, how kind you always are! I'm all right. Got a lot of fresh air and a new hairdo. The streets are full of leaves, torn off branches and dead umbrellas, but the cleaning has started and life goes on as if nothing happened. The storm made wonderful pictures and happy cats - and victims, yes.

And here comes Luna: she supports the "Freeze all work until cat decides to move" so that gives me a good excuse to sit at the pc and NOT start household chores.

Best wishes for your surgery, Ruth!

Rest and renewal with autumn colors. Hope all goes well.
