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".

Swess, what state do you live in? You could seek legal advice. Sounds like you are entitled to 50% of all assets.

If I rant on the ranting thread about censorship, will I be censored by the censors that did the censoring?

Isn't that an interesting question?

I created this space to be a no holds bard talk space.. You asked that it wouldn't be a political space. I gave way to that.

Just want others to know...........what the line is........cross a line they don't like..... and you get deleted

That's my rant

No anger, just a bitchy, whiny post about how it looks like I'm about to lose my hair again from my latest chemo. Losing it isn't the problem. The problem is that I'm an intensely private person (even my family isn't 100% privy to everything) and people take hair-loss as an open invitation to "share and care" and offer advice. I am really adept at frosting strangers out, but it honks me off that I have to! I'm generally a nice, friendly person, but I turn feral when my privacy is invaded, even if by well-meaning strangers! Yes, I have a wig, but my Gulf Coast home is one of the hottest and steamiest places on earth...I'd rather have the freedom to go about au natural without being stared at or embraced. I *envy* people with other terminal diseases that don't advertise their presence like a neon sign!

Thank goodness that my friends and family know not ask about something, that I will bring it up if I need them to know. My Rules of Order. Happy

I do freely use humor and/or feigned clueless-ness to deflect comments, sometimes it works. Sigh.

Thanks for letting me get that off my chest!

First diagnosed borderline Stage 2 IDC, left breast in 2003. No problems until a surprise (!) Stage IV recurrence in 2015! In addition to treatments listed below, I started monthly injections of Xgeva for bone support in July 2016.

I feel your pain. But sometimes a "don't ask me or I'll kill you" attitude helps. I saw a lady at the cancer center on Monday who was rocking the bald look. And I wouldn't have dreamed of saying anything.
