First time I've done this but I would love positive vibe or prayers or white light sent to my mother

She suffered a stoke today. She can recognize me but cannot speak. The said it would be a long haul in rehab - at least 90 days.

I'm so afraid she will lose the ability to play cards and bridge and Mah Jong. These thing kept her moving. I am afraid fof what she will be able to do now. My mother stays alive by keeping busy.

The weird thing is I have be meaning to get her checked because her mother had a series of strokes and and I think that is what eventually killed her.

I can think of nothing else but her. I depend on her. I am devastated.

I thought I had heard it all. Then I was watching Lockup tonight and there was this

young woman who was arrested for drug possession or something and she has her head shaved about 3-4 inches behind the front hairline.

They asked her what happened and she said it was some sort of "process" that went bad while the beautician was trying to bleach her hair. Then she was asked again because it fell out in such a straight line and she said something about "that was where the curlers were" and that is when I realized that she indeed did this to herself.

Why? Because the drugs that she was trying to get at the pharmacy were for cancer patients, (I don't know the names. I assume they are powerful pain killers), and the officers said that she was probably putting her hair in a bandana to look like she was having chemotherapy.

So that is new to me. Just thought I'd share.

I am not sure of your new voting requirements but let me tell you if you have to get

a copy of your birth certificate you are screwed in Georgia!

I am helping a friend who is trying to get her teeth fixed here in Florida and only has a photo copy of her license which is expired. They will not take that. So I got on the site today to order a copy of her birth certificate and after I am done, (putting in my credit card into and everything) I am sent to a page that tells me to print it and guess how much it costs?

U.S. Vital records or Vital certificates $52.87 PLUS
VCN Georgia Vital records $54.00 for UPS Delivery or $34.00 for Regular Mail, (after ID requirements are met)

So they charge you $34 just to send the copies through the mail??????

This total is $86.87 for a copy of a birth certificate. She does not have a credit card and I don't know if there was an option for a debit card.

This is just one big fat rip off and I bet it was set up in place to screw people from being able to vote.

I wanted to put this in Georgia in case anyone doesn't know how much they are charging for this.

So there is this town in Columbia where all the young men have sex with donkeys



This video mostly talks to the people and the women think is it OK and the young boys talk about it like it is nothing, (one kid said he had over 100 donkeys).

But toward the end it kind of shows one man doing it with blurred out parts. Just to warn you.

I just never thought that this type of behavior is celebrated as normal!

So I accidentally stuck myself with an epi-pen today and called 911

and they came and I was alone and my heart was racing and one of them said they would rather take me to the hospital than leave me alone because of that. I think they called them PVC's that I was having.

I felt like an idiot.

So how did I accidently stick myself you ask? Well they give you 2 of them and one is to train with. I found it today and thought it was the training one. It wasn't.

Epi-pins, (sp) are used if you have a severe allergy to something that could be life threatening is you don't have immediate treatment. It is to stop alaphalactic shock and death.

I have heard this statement many times in my life: "Only you. This could only happen to you"

How much does a person know who isn't on the internet?

I have a relative who is very smart and very educated - from many years ago when the computer was in the computer room and you wrote computer language on those long yellow type pieces of paper.

And she thinks that martial law is coming to this country very soon - unless of course the magnetic poles shift and most people die from starvation.

Should I tell her?

Just to make sure. Bernie Sanders voted for the vets bill right? Because

one of my "new" ' "friends" says NO and also that he is a socialist and I think that this person is probably a fox news freak.

But I want to check here first because I don't want to give the wrong information.

Teeth pulled out of a baby's brain during surgery. GRAPHIC!!!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/27/baby-brain-tumor-teeth_n_4866624.html?utm_hp_ref=mostpopular



A 4-month-old infant in Maryland may be the first person to have had teeth form in his brain as a result of a specific type of rare brain tumor, according to a new report of the case.

The boy is doing well now that his tumor has been removed, and doctors say the case sheds light on how these rare tumors develop.

Doctors first suspected something might be wrong when the child's head appeared to be growing faster than is typical for children his age. A brain scan revealed a tumor containing structures that looked very similar to teeth normally found in the lower jaw.

The child underwent brain surgery to have the tumor removed, during which doctors found that the tumor contained several fully formed teeth, according to the report.

After an analysis of tumor tissue, doctors determined the child had a craniopharyngioma, a rare brain tumor that can grow to be larger than a golf ball, but does not spread.

Please don't say anything negative. I just bought 3 discount cards at Costco

for $80 for $100 worth of food at Nutra-system. For a month it is over $300 and the woman on the phone said I can use 3 of them for the month. (I tried to call tonight but rang them too late and they are closed)

I say please don't say anything negative because I just want to concentrate on the positive as losing weight has most often been a hard thing for me to do.

I lost taking phentermine about a year ago but recently put back about 20 pounds and I really do not feel good. And with back problems is really sucks because I don't want to be active because it puts me in pain. But I've done it before - mostly I exercised by walking.

I got a script for the new drug Qysemia or whatever it is called. It is a combination of Phentermine and Topimax, both of which I have taken before. But it is not covered by me insurance and at $150/month I don't think so................

Any one here have luck with Nutri-System? I was talking to my cousin the other day and we both came to the conclusion that any system will work as long as you do it. I bought some over the counter Hydroxycut which mostly just uses caffeine but I think some of the herbs help. Actually I know they do because when I bought the stuff without the caffeine I lost weight, when I followed a diet.

Stories from women going to abortion clinics. The first one is great.

http://www.cosmopolitan.com/celebrity/news/abortion-clinic-protesters?click=smart&kw=ist&src=smart&mag=COS&link=http://www.cosmopolitan.com/celebrity/news/abortion-clinic-protesters-SMT-COS



I was 21 when a routine physical showed that I was pregnant. I fainted when I found out. I was on the Depo-Provera shot and in a committed relationship. I was also going to college, working full time and decided to end the pregnancy. I wasn’t ready physically, emotionally or financially to be a parent. I spoke to a woman at the clinic who asked if I needed an escort from my car on the day of my appointment. My aunt and best friend were accompanying me, so I said no. But then she told me to call if I was having trouble. I asked, “Why?” She paused and said, “Just please call if you are having any issues.”

I was the first appointment that day and noticed a few men, all in their 50s or 60s, milling around the parking lot when we pulled in. Once we got out of the car, one made a beeline for us with a fistful of pamphlets. My aunt said, “Thanks, but no thanks,” and he got irate, screaming, “How can you do this? You’re killing your baby to continue on your whore lifestyle, you jezebel!’ Suddenly we were surrounded by five other men — that’s when the baby-doll parts starting hitting us.

They had a box filled with torn apart baby dolls covered with red paint. All three of us were hit — in the head, chest, torso. As they were pelting us, they yelled, “This is what you’re doing to your baby! Look at the street! It’s strewn with the blood of your baby. That’s your baby scattered across the street!” It was surreal and terrifying at once. And we still had to cross a wide street to enter the clinic. Then they shouted at my aunt, “Grandma, why are you letting her do this? Tell her to give her baby up for adoption!” My aunt responded, “First of all, I’m not old enough to be a grandma. Second, come talk to me when you have a uterus and a vagina.”

<snip>


But there was one good thing the protesters did that morning: They convinced me I was making the right decision. I bet every single woman inside that waiting room felt the same way, even though none of us spoke. We’d all just been through the most heinous experience, but there was a feeling of quiet satisfaction among this group of women amidst the horror. I thought, “If I can make it through that, I can make it through the rest of this day.”
