My friend/coworker is a friendly, outgoing person, but doesn't use proper english (i.e., she do, he do) when she speaks or emails in the office.  We work in a corporate environment, so I have tried…Continue

"You brought up a real issue about the amount of time she spends away from the family and she called you a devil.  Wow.  You're in a very tough situation which, to me, might make our differences irreconcilable.  I just hope she…"

Sentient Biped commented on Kim D's blog post Update to Losing a Friend to Religion
"It's really sad.  It does sound like drugs and nothing to do with religion.  Except for the facial blisters, it could be a cult.  I suppose there are other explanations for the blisters - maybe she has a disease.  But that…"

Update to Losing a Friend to Religion

Well, it may be worse than just losing a friend to religion.  We may have lost her to drugs.  It all adds up now.  Why she would sell everything in her house that wasn't nailed down, why she has isolated herself from her friends and family, why she won't allow her family into her house after they flew from California to check on her, why she hasn't been at work and why she has blisters on her face.  I guess the annointed one blessed her with a drug habit.  It's not proven yet, but all the…See More

"Yes that's type 2.  In Type 1 the body attacks its own insulin-producing cells and kills them so the person HAS to use insulin in order to live.  This is a permanent condition unless they find a cure.  People like your co-worker…"

"I appreciate the info.  I know that she takes the pills instead of insulin and she says that if she lost some weight, she could eventually get off the pills, so it does sound like Type 2.  I think she checks her sugar level regularly…"

My husband wants my child to say grace.

My husband, son and I went out to eat dinner on Friday night and when the food arrived, my husband wanted my son to say grace and he wanted me to bow my head and along with it.  I want to teach my son to be grateful for things, but somehow I don't feel right teaching him to thank a nonexistent supernatural being for food that his daddy and I worked hard for.  My husband knows that I am an atheist and he's okay with it, but he holds on to his faith and wants to raise my son that way.  We don't… Continue

I Lost a Close Friend to Religion

Posted on July 7, 2011 at 9:46am 0 Comments

I have a girlfriend at work who no longer eats lunch with or take breaks with us (her friends for the last 4 years), she won't accept anything from anybody who is not a Jehovah's Witness, and she barely parts her lips when she sees us in the hallway.  It's a complete turnaround considering how close we've been for the last 4 years.  A lady she met at their annual JW Convention who claims to be one of the…

I'm no expert, but I think forums are like discussions which involve the whole population at AN. Isn't a blog written by an individual blogger? Blogs are like personal opinions, I guess. One person has the talk baton. In forums the talk baton passes around to anyone who posts. *shrug*

Hi,----

 

Glad to see another DFW local. I just signed up a couple of weeks ago and live in Arlington.  Nice to see another 'neighbor' on the site.
