Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 849
Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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.

Hi everyone.  Came home from the hospital today.  Thanks for all the well wishes.  I'm feeling well and, as I mentioned earlier, medication should prevent further strokes.  It turns out this was kidney related and not due to heart or blood clotting issues.  That's a big relief for me.  As far as the kidney transplant, lots and lots and lots of tests are being performed on me with more to come.  It looks fairly certain that one of my sisters will be a donor.  It's looking more like February or March now for that surgery.  Everything is on track.  It's just a slow and very deliberate process.  I'm getting great health care.

Carl:  All I want to do is {{{{{HUG}}}}} you!  Would a fat black (very soft) kitty help?

Ian: The phrase that used to make me grit my teeth is/was "top doctors say..." or "top experts..."   I always think of a pyramid of people with some doofus balancing on the apex.

WHO decides who should be listened to , anyway?  I mean, if the Nobel committee fell for the "Mother Teresa" myth, and gave the selfish old bitch a Peace Prize....(for WHAT?  Founding convents?) ...and they DID!
