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.

Thanks for asking, Steph! I had a grumpy week because of sciatica, but the pain and the grump are lessening now.

Thanks for checking in folks. Get better Ian. It's nice to hear about your family time, Mindy.

Joan, I had no idea that an amino acid could upset the stomach like that. Web MD says it's supposed to protect the digestive system. I have a delicate stomach, so I relate. Stay strong, Dear.

Joan, thanks for the information!! I'm glad you are feeling better!
Ian, I hope you feel better soon!
Steph, I love the pic! That is often how I have to read! Just tonight in fact! Lol
My niece, age 13, is spending the night tonight (from Green Bay), and she and my daughter are downstairs with my sisters ridiculously cute puppy. The girls are doing artwork. I'm so glad they are having cousin-bonding time! Also it is helping my daughter with her depression I think!
Goodnight friends! Mindy

Napoleon, Love your Cat Diaries!

Steph, am I correct, the photo of book reader with cat is Ruth?

Ian, Hope your tooth repair gets strong, quickly, and you can get back to normal eating and activity soon.

I've been doing a little experimenting with my Rx's and find the culprit on my "bad days" appears to be glutamine. I have tried it with water, juice, yogurt, and my stomach just goes crazy right after I take it, and it lasts for 24 hours. Anyone else had that problem? I will talk to the dietitian on Monday.

Personally, Steph, recovering. Had to have the root-tip filling on a tooth re-done on Friday. Not too much discomfort now as I slapped an ice pack on soon after. No exercise or solids for a few days though.

Went to the cinema yesterday evening and saw Ken Loach's "The Angels' Share", which I do heartily recommend. You just have to feel good afterwards.

Joan, I hope you're feeling better. You could polish your head and use it to dazzle people who annoy you. :-D

Joan I hope you are feeling better. My thoughts are with you.

Carl thanks for the video.

How is everyone doing?
