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.

I discovered a brilliant new way to avoid  having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two…Continue

Congrats Patricia!

Thanks Paula! Glad to hear your mother is a survivor too. Yearly mammogram found mine as well because it was deep down close to my chest wall, & it doesn't run in my family at all. I had two types of cancer, one within a tumor, & a second one outside the tumor. I had chemo & then five years on Femara after the complete mastectomy & removal of twelve lymph nodes.

Steph, I love the cat pics you post...this one definitely gave me a laugh. Any dog people here? lol

Congratulations, Patricia! Seven years is great! I hope you have many, many more ahead of you :)

My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1984 and had a radical mastectomy, but never had chemo or radiation. I'm happy to say that she is still alive today and the cancer never returned. It runs in my family...which reminds me - time to make my mammogram appointment.
