Hi everyone. Trolls and real people.
I don't know where else to share, knowing I can't share with family and friends but here I go.
I found a lump two Mondays ago. Money dictates I had to wait until today to get it checked out.
The doctor didn't find one lump. He found three. With my family history, he ordered mammograms plus ultrasounds immediately. I told him I don't have any money like that (the price for one breast without US was 257) for two weeks (WITHOUT EATING), and even that was not the complete exam I needed.
3 out of 4 women (mom and aunts) had breast cancer.
I am scared.
I am scared that the tests that I have to get finance for will not be good (Odin be willing, I will get approved for moneys.)
I am scared that I cannot afford to survive this.
Thanks to religious initiatives, I can't even get any help with mammos, cancer testing or any other further treatment that I may need thanks to Dean Heller's assault on womens' healthcare.
I told my doctor I had to wait two weeks to even test one breast. He told me, that's too long to wait.
I am sad. I am enraged. I have worked in the medical industry for 16 years and not only am I not provided benefits, I certainly can't afford them. And based on this history, family and familiar, I can't even share this information, lest I pull on the heart strings of friends and family unduly financially or emotionally compromising others. That is not even worth it to me.
I can only "pray" READ hope that if my kitty outlives me, he will be spoiled and pampered.
I'm so sorry Hagen.
I've always adored/admired you from afar.....
May 'good' news be in your future.
Let's Hope!

<quoted text>Yeah, I get you. I've been atheist for 25 years now, and I had begun to suspect I didn't believe long before that, and told myself and others that "I don't think any of the religions are on point, and if there is a god, it's nothing like what we think we know".
Then one day it all clicked, and I went from being agnostic to atheist in the almost literal span of one second. Seriously. In retrospect, I realized I'd been atheist for longer than I knew, it was just hard to admit to myself that there was nothing in the deity department to believe, since I'd been believing there was for so long, and everyone I knew at that point also believed.
But that's me. I don't want all people to "become atheist", or, to "stamp out theism" etc... I've not raised my son as an atheist, but, I've not taught him to be theist, either. It's something that really just isn't an issue 'round here, in this place(home).
hahaa.. Regardless of how I may seem here on topix or other forums and such, I don't have "ATHEIST CENTRAL" blasted into the rock ridge above my house.
I think each parent should raise their child as they see fit.
<quoted text> I do, I have 5-6 friends, some of those - my siblings - that are atheist. Every other person in my family, friends or acquaintances are theists.
I'll add that many of those "theists" lean towards agnostic in many respects. They fully admit they don't think they can know, but "believe" anyway. Agnostic theists.
<quoted text>
Well, to be somewhat blunt, the bible - OT/NT - provides justification for just about any stance a believer might assume, and it seems they(not all) often skip the parts that seems most important if you're a believer.
<quoted text> mmhhmm... The FOX news link where 8,000+ death or similarly oriented comments/threats were leveled at an atheist/atheists.
Thanks for the nap.

Will Pat let Jimbo get away?
Everything we've heard him say
Indicates that Jim must pay,
(And it just might hurt a bit) Just a bit!
But keep that money rollin' in,
'Cause Pat and naughty Jimbo
Can't get enough of it (let's dance!)
Perhaps it's their idea
Of an Affirmative Action Plan
To give White Trash a 'special break';
Well, they took those Jeezo-bucks and ran
To the bank! To the bank! To the bank! To the bank!
And every night we can hear them thank
Their Buddy, up above
For sending down his love
(While you all smell the glove)
Jim and Pat should take a pole
(Right up each saintly glory-hole),
With tar and feathers too --
Just like they'd love to do to you

Of Micro-publicans, raised on hate,

Imagine if you will,
A multi-millionaire TV Evangelist,
Saved from Korean Combat duty by his father, a U.S. Senator
Studied law --
But is not qualified to practice it
Father of a "love child"
Who, in adulthood, hosts the remnants
Of papa's religious propaganda program
Claims not to be a "Faith Healer,"
But has, in the past,
Dealt sternly with everything from hemorrhoids to hurricanes
Involved with funding for an 'undeclared war' in Central America
Claiming Ronald Reagan and Oliver North as close friends
Involved in suspicous 'tax-avoidance schemes',
(Under investigation for 16 months by the I.R.S.)
Claims to be a MAN OF GOD;
Currently seeking the United States Presidency,
Hoping we will all follow him into --
The Twilight Zone
But, hey! What if Pat gets in the White House,
(No fuckin' way, Ike,

The rights of 'certain people' disappear

Really?

I'd thought it was here. I put it on my calendar.

Not that it matters much - I regard Judaism, Christianity and Islam as minor subsets (subsects?) of the same delusion.

It began with the Sumerians 6000 years ago. It's been dividing and reinventing itself ever since.

It is an evolutionary tale. <smile>

2. I've never heard of not eating anything for two weeks.
3. You prayed, "Odin be willing"---is that a deity who actually has the power to heal you?
4. Now it's Dean Heller's fault? And who is Dean Heller?
1. My husband? LOL I think you have be confused with someone else.
2. I could afford the tests if I stopped eating. Among other things, stop paying rent, stop paying bills, etc... I'm sure you'll catch on.
3. Odin has just as much power as any other god. None.
4. Dean Heller is a Nevada Senator. He has made an all out assault on Planned Parenthood, even though Planned Parenthood in Reno does not provide abortion services.
