Animal lover, of course. It's my passion. But I also have a love for music. If I don't hear music, I am sad. Love to help people in need. Assertive and studious. Love to research on the computer. Laughter is my favorite thing to do. Love to act crazy and make people laugh. It seems to work. Just ask me, I'll tell ya the truth.

  • Why is it when you ask a question, people want to share their opinion?

    When someone asks a legitimate question like about finding a website where you can pay to check someone's background, please don't give your opinion. That's opinion and everybody's got one.

  • True or False - Everett, MA residents?

    A friend of mind lived in a house that, I am told, was built in the 70's on a veteran cemetery. Is it possible that the state of Massachusetts relocated the headstones and not the bodies for the sake of housing development? I mean, it happened in the movie Poltergeist. Does anyone know the facts? If so, please let me know. The house my friend lived in was haunted and violent activities took place there during their residence for four years!

  • Does anyone in South Carolina know about Sister Care?

    When you are in an abusive situation and consider how much it is affecting your child, the first thing you want to do is pack your bag and "get the heck out of dodge". I have left a couple of times only to face even more difficulty due to my health problems. It was hard lugging around my crap in and out again of people's homes, and only being able to stay a couple of days at a time. When you have no one to turn to, you scratch your head and say "bump this, I'm staying in my own home"! At least there, I can come and go and do as I please because it's mine.

    Can anyone tell me from experience if they ever lived at a shelter through Sister Care? Is there any such thing as privacy? Do you have a curfew? I need all the info I can get. I am sick with cancer and my abuser don't care. He doesn't want to care. It's gotten to the point that I will die if I stay or may have a chance if I leave. Of course, that depends too on whether the chemotherapy kills my cancer.

  • What was chemotherapy like the first time, ladies?

    If anyone who has been through chemo, can tell me about their experience, I would love to hear. I am really interested in knowing how long it took for the first treatment. Then, I would also like to know about your hair loss. Was it all at once, the first week, later on?

    Mine starts tomorrow and I am very nervous. Thanks for any input.

  • New drug to help you quit smoking?

    I saw a commercial on tv for a pill you take for smoking cessation. It said that you take the medication, continue to smoke and that the urge to smoke subsides, making it easier to quit.

    Does anyone know the name of that drug? If so, please let me know as soon as possible. I have lung surgery coming up in the next week or two. I want to start taking it prior to that.

  • Even with cancer threatening my life, he's still cold as ice.?

    My husband has always been like this throughout the past 10 years with me. He is self-employed, doesn't follow IRS regulations, drinks and drives, keeps a private bank account and a private P.O. Box for "other" mail. I have fought him on all these issues til I'm blue in the face. Each month I try to make it work with less than $900 to live on. He pays all the bills, buys the food, household items, pet supplies, etc. I pay my own bills. He pays his own bills. I run out of money about 2 weeks into the month and that's when I have to turn to him. When I ask him to support me by making funds available in my bank account, the answer is (95% of the time), "I ain't got it ti' I get this check or that one, but I'll put some money in your account". But, he never does. With my overdraft protection "line of credit", I use my debit card when I'm out of money because I have to survive (gas, daughter needs, whatever). I now discover I have cancer for the second time. This time I am getting ready for surgery and chemo. Since then, he drinks his *** off and still refuses me the money with every excuse he can create each day. I get charged $23.00 every time I use my card. By the end of the month, I owe the bank more than $300 in the negative. So what is wrong with this picture? I am getting screwed - that's what! Mornings are normal "honey, I love you" and "good-bye, have a good day". The evenings he walks in already high as a kite and the hateful, belligerent, harsh verbal abuse begins. Either I get it or my daughter does.

    So, this is my hell. With no outside support I am going under fast. He has pretty much "locked out" any of my family to keep me in a little box called "torture chamber". It's a control thing.

    What the hell are choices for me. I am drowning in debt, begging for mercy, doing his paperwork, taxes at the end of the year (which he refuses to pay THROUGHOUT the year! I already had one nervous breakdown because of him. Never again.

    Should I quit while I'm ahead? Should I let go of life and let my daughter (age 12) fend for herself? I don't see any choices, frankly. It sure does suck being me.

  • Aging Parents - their death?

    Now that mom is 84 years old and having illnesses and so much pain from hip replacement, shoulder replacement, injured joints, etc. one of us six girls in the family had to take the responsibility of caregiver. So here I am! Since mom is getting worse with short-term memory loss and not Alzheimer's it is very difficult caring for 24 hours a day and demands almost every moment of my day. I have become very depressed, have heart trouble, constant pain. My 4 sisters in my state don't want any involvement with our mother as far as spending one weekend or day each month with her. Because of my health, they suggest a nursing home but her mind is not "gone" and she doesn't even qualify for their services because she only has huge medical problems and the short-term memory loss. If you felt like it was killing you (literally), but refused to take her to her death by dumping her at a nursing home, what would you do? It would break my dear mother's heart.

    Just wanted input from other people. Any words of wisdom? Please -- only loving people respond to my question. I get enough negative from my sisters. Thanks.

  • The who: abusive husband; What: has control of the house, money, and bills.?

    With my small disability check I can barely pay my own personal bills (i.e. credit cards and cell phone). It has been difficult to accept by my husband. So, over time he started treating me like crap and also started drinking everyday. I also caught him cheating on the phone and also my best friend told me about things he did when he hung out like talking about my experience when I had a nervous breakdown and had to go to a mental health facility (that he calls the "nut house").

    About 5 months ago, we were forced to take my 84-year old mother in our home to take care of her because my sister kicked her out. Now husband is abusive more than ever and drinking like a baby drinks a milk bottle. We're at the end of our ropes and I want a divorce because of the drinking, he wants to cheat because my mother's here and blames me.

    What should I do?

  • Wife of alcoholic husband seeking practical solutions!?

    When you're feeling despair and hopelessness it's hard to find the right support. You're looking for emergency help so that you, your kids, and maybe your very old mother who can barely walk, can get the heck out! All I see under the word "support" is talking in a group, sharing your feelings, blah, blah, blah. How can that help when you need to run away from a jerk? Support - what a joke!

  • Question for a Nurse (URGENT)! Bone infection?

    I had a bone scan resulting from lung cancer in 2005. The scan reported the following: READING -- "Focal hot spot in the anterior right side of the maxilla likely related to dental disease". This is unusual because I don't have upper teeth. I have a denture. I did, however, have maxillary sinus surgery in the same year as my cancer. Could this be a culprit?
