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

Ruth, sympathy and hugs to you. I've been through all that too so I know how it feels, physically and emotionally. It's yet another proof of a lack of intelligent design. Hope it gets sorted out soon.

No apology necessary, Ruth.  Besides, if you feel the need to "take it out" on us, that's perfectly fine.  That's why we're all here under the label:  friends.  I hope you can finally get some relief from your pain.

toothache is horrible, Ruth, not trivial at all! I hope the problem will be solved tomorrow!

I don't think you've been taking it out on us Ruth!  And just because other people have other health/pain issues, this is YOUR issue, and you have a right to be upset about it!!  You don't need to apologize to us!  I can't believe they've let you go this long without taking care of it!  I'm sorry you've had to go through this, and I hope it gets resolved soon!  Hugs to you!

We use metric in Canada too Chris. Over 30* here too & it gets more & more unbearable as we get older. I hate heat & always have, so will be very glad when it goes.
