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

PoppyK...I well know about the eyes rolling. My two so-called girlfriends. We went out to dinner one night and as I was telling my experience I saw one of their eyes roll, and they started to kick each other under the table. And I PAID FOR THEIR DINNER. That spoke volumes to me and needless to say, we are not as close as we once were. I guess my disease was inconvenient for them too. But I wish I had the guts to call them on it. Oh well, better off without them.

Hoping I get some relief for my spinal stenosis tomorrow.

I would like to rant about the nonsupport I got from my husband. I guess I have a high pain threshold or something but I had no pain after the MX, but because I had lymph nodes removed I wasn't supposed to do any heavy lifting etc. for awhile. About a week after the surgery I asked him to vacuum because I couldn't stand it anymore. He said, "Why? It looks fine." Until I told him I would do it using the opposite arm, he wasn't going to, but relented and vacuumed.....once.

I also am so sick of people that say, "Well, now you're done with treatment so you're cured". The only person that truly knows how it feels to have Cancer hanging over your head is a friend who has anal/colon cancer. Whenever we write each other we sign it:

Stay cured!! (like we have the ability to control that) and yeah...right here I'm including my own eye-roll.

My rant for the day, going to a forum and seeing women being mean spirited and posting bashing comments to each other. I see this happen particularly on forums where somebody has an inflammation on their breast, or is worried because they are young, and then "experts" come in and minimize the persons fear. wtf is that about? Anybody who is scared should be able to come here and voice their fear, and not be patronized by another member just because they have no diagnosis yet. If I had read some of the posts I have seen when I first came here, I would never have come back to this forum.

What is it with mean spirited people? If you can't say something nice, just don't post

I had my steam and rant monument this morning with the Specialty Pharmacy of my health insurance. I had to call to approve the charge for the Botox inj. For my migraines.

The lady started this run around that first they would have to review my benefits, but that probably wouldn't happen until next week. I' ve been on this for 9 months, can't see why this would need to be done this time....bla blah, have to make sure about your deductible and copayment etc. I told her I had met all. Have chemo Jan.2! Had met my out of pocket.,put me on hold 3 times.....I asked for the supervisor...got my husband on the other phone...he is the company owner...nothing has changed.,lady came back on the line. I told her I had Stage 4 metastatic cancer and she's had just wasted 37 minutes of my Life!

Guess what, she talked to Supervisor and all taken care of. I was so pissed.

Italy, I agree with the mean spirited comments. You can give a different point of view without bashing anyone. Everyone and their cancer is so different, there isn't one correct path to follow.

Beatmom. GRRR! I hate when insurance cos play that game. I found out that my insurance company has a division who only deal with cancer patients and our treatments. It's made things so much easier, but wouldn't have helped in your situation.

I'm pretty pissed. Before my diagnosis, I had a knee injury. This injury was put on the back burner to deal with the BC. Now I'm back working on the knee injury. The orthopedist wanted to put me on a particular anti-inflammatory; the insurance rejected it and wants a different med. Finally my ortho put me on the other med, plus Prilosec because the other med can cause digestive issues. Well, I had extremely painful gi symptoms for 5 days. I landed in the urgent care, where they ran all sorts of tests and scans to rule out kidney stones, appendicitis, aneurisms, and so on. All of these tests were much more expensive than the original darn med.... Not to mention that I was in so much pain I was curled up in a ball unable to speak! Why are insurance cos over ruling doctors????

PoppyK - so sorry you are going through this crapola. I'm seeing ortho because I fell and broke my wrist and endocrinologist because my bone density scans came back wonky. Prilosec has saved me this last year, but now endo ordering me off it because evidence it contributes to bone loss. Great! Another quality of life issue! My insurance co. Called last week because my spending shot up with adding two new specialists. Like I really want this? Had to convince them I was being a good little cancer patient when I really wanted to tell them to shove it! I feel like I have to kiss up because they have my life in their hands. They take advantage of us when we are at our most vulnerable. Hope you are feeling better. Linda

My rant for today is family members (like my mother) who downplay my symptoms or side effects, unless she hears the same thing from some acquaintance, then and only then do i get any validation from her! Sigh

Also, she won't accept that my osteoarthritis is so debilitating and that i cant possibly feel as bad as she does! I told her try being only 48 and feeling like 85.

Isnt that where we all were at some point in our lives to get us to diagnosis. Im not saying that there isnt crazy people out there but even those people deserve help. Wtf? Having cancer doesnt give you a bitch excuse pass!! My point is very very simple if upsets those certain people than they shouldnt respond to these people asking and begging for help.... I dont claim to know anything I just started this journey about a year ago but hey a im sorry you are feeling this way or good luck goes a long way than treating people like they are idiots.

Right! we all have/had cancer whether we are stage 0 or stage 4. Everyone of us needs support not mean people commenting on our posts. Remember how traumatized you were at diagnosis looking for any support and reason to hope things will be alright. Testing to determine if you have BC is also a distressing time. I try to give comfort to others and remember how much I needed help and support.

It is sad what some women can say in this forum. One thread I particularly liked was 'Women 40 - 60"...since I'm 56. Arrrggghhhhhh! Rules, rules, rules. There is ONE woman that literally dictates what can and cannot be said in that thread. For example, you DO NOT mention the weather. Scoldy, scoldy, scoldy...that's what she says. I bailed.

I've seen it too, on the not diagnosed but worried pages. It's really upsetting to see how bitch 2 in particular can be. I had a run in with one of them on a thread I started a while back about feeling envious of women with breasts. She made me feel like a fool for posting about it and almost ran me off.

I don't get it either, but you can block people you don't like so that may help.
