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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Joan, my neuropathy isn't linked to diabetes, and it's not really a solid diagnosis, that's just what my doctor thinks it is.  I had the Nissen surgery almost 5 years ago.  I have had horrible acid-reflux, and an esophageal hernia (the surgery took care of that) for years.  I've always had stomach problems.  These things are all really old news for me.  I live just fine on my meds, it's just my body is getting too used to them, so they had to up the dosage.  Thanks for looking-up all that info!  It's not new to me, but I think it's awesome that you like to learn about things all the time!  That's a great way to be!  Thanks for all the support!  I'd say I feel really good about 85% of the time, and that's okay with me!  There are some things I can't do (like drink alcohol, except a very occasional beer if I have had a 'good' stomach day), but it's no big deal.  I wish I had a definite diagnosis with it being A and the cure is B, but it is a combination of things.  Others have worse, and I don't complain toooo much, lol.

You guys are awesome! ~ Melinda

Diet After Nissen Fundoplication Surgery

I'm sure you have all this information, and probably a lot more. I had a friend with GERD and this is the information source he used. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 18, 2012 at 9:36pm

Melina, is neuropathy of the digestive-system like neuropathy caused by diabetes? I read just a little via my medical newsletters. Here is one that is brief, but may offer information. If you want more, I will gladly pull out some of my old materials. 

Diabetic neuropathy
I am so sorry to learn of your difficulty and relieved that you have a physician who recognizes the symptoms and has given you some relief. 

Now, the next trick, how to flourish, given you have a health problem. It sounds like your family gives you good emotional support. 

Please keep us posted on how you are doing, anything new you learn, and even turn to us to rant.
