"She/he still has a lot of anger issues and she/he is manifesting it with breast/prostate/stomach... CANCER"... or whatever dz. That line of "thinking" really pains me. A. With most diseases, there's zero evidence. B. It's another superstitious blame game C. Where's the compassion?
WHAT DO YOU THINK? HOW DO YOU RESPOND? Thankyou

....yeah and when THEY get hit by a car.....
This is a variation of "I'm not responsible for your health care, amongst people who don't understand that medicare is govt run!

Blame the victim, anything but the truth, like wishing yourself riches a la Oprah W!
oh yes, Gwen! the car accident typically "is the higher self creating a spiritual lesson"... "they needed to slow down, and now that they are a quadraplegic, the universe is forcing them to align with their spiritual purpose." excuse me --- i need to puke my guts out on that one....
Anne Marie,
As I read your response I feel a little bit confused and misunderstood. I think what you're saying is that my entry came accross to you as arrogant and callous and that you do believe there is always a mind body connection. I think you value compassion and you didn't receive that in what I wrote. One possible confusion may be that you thought maybe I'm blaming the person for their illness or disease? I didn't intend to convey that. I meant to convey the opposite. Thank you for letting me know how what I wrote affected you. sherry
ohh, i see.. I see that we agree on both points... the "blaming the patient w/ supernatural "explanations" in the one situation while at the same time there is a mind body connection in the second. I get your humor now, thanks! I'm glad you followed up on this as I was wondering if I needed to be a lot more careful when I wrote stuff, and now I think I can let my occassional posts be unhibited. Thanks again, sherry
