      I dunno, meyati. @Carool is for being wrapped in govt but I am not so sure I am. I only recently discovered that I have few rights and that my freedom expectations were way over the top.

      The idea was to let the States decide but the State governments have become to unweildy and partisan just like POTUS/SCOTUS/COTUS. Im not really sure is Congress is called COTUS but, lol, it sounds enough like coitus to ring my bell on a day like this.

      Why is Trump killing civilians in Iraq and Syria?

      @ andreacha, I am glad you answered that call. How can our frustrations at times not effect those around us, especially our caregivers. My lingering side effect has been “ chemo brain “. I carry a small composition tablet in my purse to jot down what I need to remember for the short term and long term . What was a very cathartic lesson for me was writing down my story, starting from when I first knew something wasn’t right until the day I finished treatment. I was in a room with several other survivors all writing down their experiences, all different from mine. By the time we finished the stories,the tears were flowing and we were reaching for Kleenex. None of us had really accepted how deeply our cancer journeys had effected us.

      I could relate to almost 100% of her thoughts & complaints. I’m not angry, but I’m new on this journey (only 6 months post frontline). I’m a believer and place my trust in Christ so I have the shield of faith.
      My pets were my daily companions on those long, lonely days while hubby worked. He was a wonderful, loving, nagging caregiver. They each played a part in helping me through those trying days.
      I often thought how would I get through any of this if I didn’t have the love & support of family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Along the way it increased my love. I pray that I can continue with a loving heart no matter how the journey goes.
      God bless.
