This thread is meant to be for RANTS and RANTING. Then Rant again. We need a place to simply get rid of the anger. Write it here. Unleash it all. Get it out. This isn't meant for the Stupid comments(great thread). This is for the gut wrenching, tell them off anger.

IMPORTANT: When done ranting don't necessarily stick around. Toxic. Drop the rant and find a better thread.

Only rules: Please, follow them as the Mods will shut it down in a heartbeat( waving Mods)

1. Be careful to not mention docs, nurses, hospitals by name. Defamation and all that tedious legal stuff

2. If it's caused by someone on BCO, just don't mention their name. I think the exception will be if someone is stalking you, blow their anonymity wide open. A stalker doesn't deserve politeness.

3. If you think the rant is about you, let it go, they're no names. Don't take it personal. This is the steam room.

4. If they're is a fight, don't expect the Mods to moderate, it was your choice to come here.

5. After writing a rant, do nothing more, re-read at a future time. Decide if it's important enough for you to cut and paste the rant to whomever caused you the anger. It's a choice. Sometimes it needs to be done, but remember they're can be fall out.

6. ######## pound those keys, SCREAM(caps), J*&R$WSDF&(swear)

7. Religion and politics discussion should go to those topical threads. IF their is something that impacts cancer, it belongs here.

I will revise topic box as needed-sassy

For puking and the color works pukeewogh

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "holy crap....what a ride".

lita, is it the 880 one that was on the news? Nasty accident 1 exit from mine (mowry).

I agree. It's easy to forget that we are luckier than some, like those 2 kids who were killed☹

Lita,

Saw reports on the local news this evening . 880 in Fremont, right ? I've driven that way hundreds of times. Horrendous and a sad waste of life. It is always all the more heart wrenching when children are involved. Glad your dd's friend is alright.

Swess honey, I’m sorry you feel trapped. I felt trapped in a bad marriage years ago, with two small children, so I can relate a little. Of course, I wasn’t stage 4, which probably changes everything. I don’t know where you are or what your situation is, but if you really want a divorce, there may be resources to help you. I know there was free legal advice and help when I started looking. There was a lawyer who helped me fill out the paperwork to get the ball rolling. Being stage 4, perhaps you could go on disability? That would be some financial stability. Again, I don’t know your whole situation, but I feel for you.

he'll never leave this house as in you won't get the house? Coexisting in a marriage isn't right. And you shouldn't feel bad for blasting him. That's how you feel.

Apply for social security disability. There's a thread in the financial employment forum here that gives the best link to a forum on ssdi. Stage 4 are fast tracked through. I'd apply now. Gl

Swess, I'm in a coexisting situation myself. I left DH for three years just before my dx. I was 62. That really woke him up. I moved back into the house we own and we do ok. He does all the housework, shopping, cooking, dishes, cleaning, laundry, everything. I also have MS so him doing it all is required. Recently, we got a dog and it is the first time we have something in common we really care about. That is helping. We don't do anything together except watch TV at night. I don't have any advice really. Just know that you are not alone in this mess. I bet it is pretty common. I have had SSDI since I was 52. Now, I'm 69. When you turn 65, SSDI turns into retirement SS. Amount doesn't change. Unless you made a very good salary, it is not enough to live on. Not even close.

PM me anytime.

First post under the steam room but i've read practically all of yours. After a glorious six weeks, on the roller coaster again. Went to the doctor yesterday and he sent me for another round of herception/perjeta. In the process of making all the doctor appointments, the new biopsy appointment, you know how it goes. My mind is going a million miles an hour. The chemo nurse says to me, you need radiation. That will be what helps you. Get radiation.

Okay, thank you but I didn't ask you.

Then she's going over some medical history and out of nowhere she starts grilling me about why I didn't have both ovaries removed. (I had one ovary removed that had a large cyst. This was planned with my doctor over several months) I don't need her opinion on my ovary.

Okay, at that point I stopped explaining.

I used to be so nice and before would have said something like okay, I'm looking into it or working on that with the doctor but I'm over it.
