HippieChick58 comments on Jan 21, 2018:
If I understand this correctly, if I am new and I want to discuss something and I'm told we've done that already, that I should go check out the old stuff. I think it is the nature of groups like this that topics get revisited frequently, If you've already contributed your $.02 then you can ignore. Some of us might like to see what the newer folks have to say or add things we didn't think of the first (and possibly second and third....) time around. I think that is the nature of conversations. I wouldn't want newer folks to feel like there are hurdles and insider conversations going on.

HippieChick58 comments on Jan 21, 2018:
I believe that the government needs to look out for the common good of all people, especially those that are more vulnerable: elderly, young, and/or differently-abled. It is both intellectual and emotional. The government needs to set standards because private business isn't. Look at big pharma and medicine. People should be put before profit. No company should have the CEO making 1000 times what his employees make. The hoarding of wealth is one of the major ills of our society.

I drink coffee on an as needed basis only. At home I add cream (real heavy cream) and a sweetener (maple syrup or honey). And if I need to drink it , it is going to be strong. I rarely drink coffee after noon because it will keep me awake and that is so NOT good. If I go into my office on the weekend I will have a frou frou Starbucks coffee, usually with something for breakfast. I don't "Like" coffee, but enough cream, sweetener, and the desire for caffeine can usually persuade me to choke it down.

I think the law needs to err on the side of caution. Dead is not reversible. If you take someone's life and it turns out the evidence was wrong then there are no do overs. As a parent/grandparent Yes, I would want the murderer killed. As a rational human being I want to be 100% sure we have the right person.

HippieChick58 comments on Jan 21, 2018:
My kids know better than to give anything like that. If I got a book it would go to the library or used book store. My stance is to accept, say the right thing which is usually "thank you," and then go on as I would be going on. What I do with the gift is not their business, but then I don't have relatives to keep happy and friends that would give gifts are fellow Humanists or Atheists.

HippieChick58 comments on Jan 21, 2018:
We were an active church going family when the kids were growing up. My kids pretty much figured out on their own that it was BS, going off to college helped. We were a military family, so away from biological family and the church was our family and social life. I led several groups, did bible studies, the kids went to VBS, sunday school, church, choir and church camp. Their dad got more and more uninvolved with them as he got more involved with his religious website. Post divorce I tried to find a church, but the truth is churches are not welcoming of middle aged single women. Then I was introduced to Zeitgeist, and did some additional reading and it was like an awakening. My kids attitude was "what took you so long."

I don't care what I look like, I've never thought I was pretty or cared about it. I want to be accepted for who I am. If that makes me more attractive to someone I guess that is good. Beauty if in the eye of the beholder. I'd rather be a good person with great character, a smart, caring, loyal person than be a beautiful person who has no character, smarts, compassion, or empathy. The only thing I really care about looks wise is I don't want to scare small children.

HippieChick58 comments on Jan 20, 2018:
I worked awfully damned hard to get lucky. My kids are amazing now, but I worked with them and was there for them, and I was a "mean" mom that held them accountable and kept them from doing stupid stuff and gave them enough room to do stupid stuff with some safety. My less than humble opinion is in parenting, you don't get lucky. You do the work. Dog trainers will tell you a person gets the dog they deserve. I put time and effort into training my dog too, he was awesome. Same as my kids. There are some things I couldn't change. The youngest takes the easy way out and is very laid back, too laid back, kinda flaky. But there is only so much you can do. She's not horrible. Nature vs Nurture.

My kids would be fine with it. I need someone I can talk to about everything. Someone who is conservative or religious is just going to piss me off. I am amicable with my ex and we are together for kids birthdays, holidays, and now grand babies. We get along fine until he starts talking politics or religion, or quite a few other things. We have a few things we can discuss. I leave those extended family occasions thinking how glad I am that I (1) didn't kill him, and (2) am no longer married to him. Miss the money, not the man.

Natural Selection, or Universal Healthcare?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 20, 2018:
What is the price of human life? What is the price to society of neglecting health? The Tide pod issue is not a healthcare issue, it is a marketing and social media issue. When heathcare is rationed the health of the population suffers and it costs more in the long run. ERs are used for primary care which wastes their resources. If every citizen has access to health care and can take care of their basic health, medical costs will drop. For example, if diabetes is treated properly it will avoid endless complications. ERs frequently end up treating and admitting poor diabetic individuals who end up with emergency amputations and other complications. That is NOT a good use of resources. The US is so far behind the rest of the world in this aspect it is shameful.

HippieChick58 comments on Jan 20, 2018:
Through my work I deal with some religious organizations. I hear or read "have a blessed day" or similar comments frequently. I just let them roll on past. Don't get your garters in a knot for something trivial. I don't make it a habit to discuss my religion or lack thereof at work, or much of anyplace else. I know you're in a conservative area, I used to live in the KC area. My policy is to share on a "need to know" basis. Do they need this information, or do I need to put it out there? Usually not. Just like if I had a medical condition, ie: Would it affect someone negatively to know I had Herpes? Not that I do. Also, consider the intention, they're wishing you well.

And how to survive on what I was able to earn, and how I didn't really want to deprive my kids of anything. I tried for a very long time, the kids tell me it was too long.

If they want to a casket and funeral, or if they want to let the state handle it. I am not going to be there, I don't really care. It won't be me anymore. I do like the idea of a tree growing out of my remains though. I'm not the party type. I have a friend who wants pregnant nuns at his funeral. Several of his lady friend are to obtain habits and strap on a pillow. I think a post-menopausal pregnant nun would be hysterical.

I don't think it is a one size fits all situation. In my work day I frequently have to contact HR departments for additional information. Once in a while they respond in seconds, and I always try to thank them and let them know how amazing I think that is. It is tax time and HR departments and my company are swamped, so turn around time of many days is more the norm. I try to say something good as soon as there is something good to say. The other side of that is something I got from Lord Mountbatten many years ago. "Never complain, never explain." The never explain I usually don't get to skip, but only complain if it is truly constructive.

Have you ever awakened & wondered how you got there?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 20, 2018:
Now that I think about it, 1979 in Okinawa, no booze, booty, or anything. Woke up and could not figure out where I was or why I was there. Weirdest feeling ever! I worked rotating shifts, so I was sleeping during the daytime. It was like I had total amnesia for a few minutes. Then I saw something I'd had for a long time and all the memories fell back into place. Sort of like seeing your whole life flash in front of your eyes. I've never experienced that again, but I remember that feeling of disorientation, kind of out of body or who am I experience.

Now another daughter is having a baby. I don't think I want to go anyplace for a year where I can't take the babies. Well, the parents too cuz I'm done with full time baby stuff. But I want to be nearby to see the babies grow up.

What are your experiences of mental health?
HippieChick58 comments on Jan 20, 2018:
I've dealt with anxiety/depression for many years. I remember first realizing I was depressed at 23ish, single, in the Army. I was not a good fit for the Army. But it passed, life goes on. When I was married 15+ years later I was dealing with depression more frequently. I told my ex once that I was depressed and on medications and he told me he didn't want to hear about it because it made him depressed. Towards the end of the marriage anxiety kicked in because the future was so uncertain. I have seen counselors several times. Getting a divorce at 50ish with limited marketable skills was tough. I still deal with anxiety/depression. My job is very stressful. My stress levels cause my heart rate to kick up, and then I can't sleep, which doesn't help me do my job and causes more stress. And here's the irony. I work in disability claims. We get lots of mental health claims. I see so may claims where the family doc said take some time off to rest and exercise and see me in a month. That is NOT sufficient treatment most of the time to allow me to approve your disability benefits. For me I know I need more exercise, more sunshine, and to eat better. My current plan is to hang on until I can retire, and most of the time I'm doing OK. Not great but OK.

Welcome to the site.
With this site now open, do you consider Facebook to be redundant now?

I have a crib quilt I am making for a baby due in May. My second grandchild. If I didn't have to work it would get done so much faster.
