Throwing the stupid broad who answers the phone at my PCP’s office on the bonfire. The broad tried to give me the run around about getting the insurance required referral so I can see my cardiologist next month. The appointment with my cardiologist has been scheduled since last year! Tired of having to set the people at my PCP’s office straight all the time! They think people having nothing better to do than to be in a doctor’s office all the time! They are worse than my dentist!

Throwing this stupid plastic bag tax for my state on the bonfire. As of Aug. 1 we in Connecticut have to pay $.10 a bag unless we bring reusable ones everywhere. I always was responsible with the plastic bags and saved them for when I cleanout the litter box for my cats. Just another way for my state to tax us to death.

Mommy, Dallas did that for a while too, since repealed. I hated it! Self check outs had no bags. If I grabbed one item more on a quick trip in than I could carry it became a big deal. For a big grocery shopping expeditin I would need a trunk-ful of bags, which I invariably forgot and left in the car. I too reused bags for lunches, litter, etc., and I use garbage bags, so it wasn’t mine blowing in the trees. I hate virtue signaling crap like this! Turns out reusable bags are a health hazard too

Wouldn’t be suprised to see it go nationwide. Up until Sept. 1 paper bags are free at one local grocery store after that they are subject to the stupid tax.

Hi Iris...yes its me again...finally crawled out of the woodwork...I have done acupuncture..love it..always worked for me no matter where they stuck the needles...back, neck, knee..etc.

I know your all there for me...Nikki had the biopsy yesterday they did the vacuum biopsy and got 4 or 5 tissue samples...all they said was..we are praying for a good result.....she will get her result tomorrow, Wednesday...she has a dog who takes seizures so company is kept to a minimum..even me...so I won’t be with her when she gets the call, but her son and daughter are home on winter break from college...they will be there...I am pissed..love the dog, but imagine competing with a dog to be with your daughter, but I understand..I just feel bad not to be with her...she said to me..Mom I will be ok, good news or bad...so I will let my “best friends” know as soon s I hear something...I am hoping if it is something she will go to the hospital where Mariana Weiss the head of BCO is on staff.....there is a very good Breast surgeon there who made Top Doc‘s in our area..which is thee Philly suburbs...but again..she will do what she wants...

Thanks for all your prayers and concern...you all are the very best...hugs

Proud it is an abbreviation for some long words......now they said no surgery even for the PASH...in a conference an Onc, Dr., and the Radiologist who did the biopsy said there is so little of the small tumor left cause she took so many tissue samples it is not necessary to remove the tiny bit left, if there is even any there....MRI in another 6 months ..my point is...isnt even the smallest spot that they plan to leave is not cancer, ‘and will never be cancer..goi’ng to show up in any films they do from here on in....and a big and...will the be able to know for sure if it does show up...that it is still this same lefover PASH, or another suspicious area.....but they are going with no surgery...so who knows....

Ducky, interesting new approach. Me, my original diagnosis was dcis, took 3 lumpies till it was considered clear for radiation.

8 years later and i am dealing with mbc, wish in my case that i had done a mastectomy and then continued the meds for 10 years not 5

Chemo stinks
