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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

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

Those are beautiful flowers Patricia. Early detection is best - I agree.
Flying Atheist - I'm taking an Environmental Science class this summer. It's something I'm very interested in.

We do tend to stick with each other when nature decides to give us this invader to fight. Willingly or not, we are in a sort of club. Early detection is key, so let's go gals, you know what ya gotta do!

Steph, in summer school are you going to be the student or the teacher?  What classes will you be involved with?

Comment by booklover on May 22, 2013 at 1:52pm

Joan, that is so nice of you to include the woman with no support-system!!!!  I'm glad it's going okay.

Steph, adorable cat pic. :)  I know you'll do great in your classes! ~ Melinda/Mindy/Booklover, lol

The Breast Cancer Site

I'm all hooked up, first drip will take 1 1/2 hours. Five hours till finished. I feel fine, not a bit of pain; staff at Cancer Care Northwest have so many skills, patients getting chemo all have positive attitudes, there are twelve  of us getting chemo with no  vacant chemo-recliner.  My little support team spreads their good cheer wherever they are. There are many volunteers that tend to our every needs, making sure patients have blankets, nuts and beverages.  

Laura and Laura sit with me, they provide great conversation for me and a woman next to me who doesn't have a good support system and needs one very badly. I think we have a new team member.

You always have a great perspective Joan!

Thanks Steph, my daughter started her hardest class, math, yesterday. The other 2 have different start-dates.

Melinda that's so nice of your mom to support your daughter in her decision to focus on her classes. Did she already start summer school?
Joan we are here to support you and you are in our thoughts.
Happy hump day to you too Melinda!

With that last blast to you on Atheist Nexus, I go to chemo therapy and will be there about five hours as they drain a little bit of poison at a time into my body. I welcome it with gratitude and appreciation for the researchers who look for the best treatment and diet, the doctors and technicians who administer it, my family who  will hold my hand as I puke into whatever receptacle I can find and my support system that exists here at Atheist Nexus. Do not pray for me, get your exams regularly, and go to the best doctors you can find. Do not rely on voodoo herbalists who make claims that they cannot support with research. For those who do the research properly, separate those out from the witch doctors and think for yourself!
