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

LOL Carl!  She LOVES cats!  She can clean too! ;)  I'm glad to hear your niece and her boyfriend are doing the same thing and succeeding!  It gives me hope!

I'm a child of the 60s, Carl ... far out is FAR OUT ... groovy ... and totally tubular ... or something like that!  [grin!]

I wonder about a lot of these diseases......when I was doing my chemo in 2005/06, the chemo nurses said that cancer should have been cured a long time ago but it makes too much money!!! I'm sick of money ruling life as well as everything else.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on June 27, 2013 at 3:06pm

You just answered my question, Loren.  lol

Comment by The Flying Atheist on June 27, 2013 at 3:05pm

Loren, I just want to confirm what you meant by your phrase, "very far out."  Did you mean very far out as time in the future or as in "Very far out, Man, that's cool."?

I know the article states that this vaccine is in the very early stages.

Comment by Loren Miller on June 27, 2013 at 2:58pm

If they can do that with diabetes, how about OTHER auto-immune diseases?  Calling this "exciting" understates the matter ... BADLY!

Comment by Loren Miller on June 27, 2013 at 2:53pm

Carl, to put it succinctly, that is VERY FAR OUT!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on June 27, 2013 at 2:49pm

Mindy, I just saw this on my news feed and immediately thought of your son.

Type 1 diabetes vaccine hailed as 'significant step'

Who knows what advances in science we will see in the coming years?  I find our progress in all medical fields to be exciting and encouraging for mankind.
