Or in other words, a place to let off steam.

OK people, we all know that life is frequently unfair, although whoever said life was supposed to be fair?

I have done some major moaning here in the last couple of days, probably because I had nowhere else and no-one else to talk to about things.

Without wanting this thread to become a totally miserable \"why me\" thread, how about using this thread for those times when you feel fed up to the back teeth with something, or you've stubbed your toe yet again, or dropped and broken yet another plate, and then say how you managed to cope with whatever it was?

And if you just can't cope, this might be a nice place to come and have a moan and groan and ask for a cyber hug or three.

What say you all?

It's just so easy to say \"scroll on by\" when something diabolical is said, but it isn't so easy to do it, is it.

I'm trying to defend my religion on one board, and trying to defend my country on another one [both boards being part of a major group of public messageboards].

Trying to defend my religious dietary restrictions when people don't understand or want to know why these restrictions are there, and why I keep to them.

Sitting on my hands when people attack my religion and my Country.

And absolutely no way I can say what I really want to say.

This isn't a rant, it's just how things are getting me down, hence I've posted it on this thread.

Even if no-one reads it, at least I know I can say how I feel without being shat upon from a great height.

Tony, when you are at the receiving end, and you thought you had gotten away from the anti-Semitism when leaving the UK, it isn't so easy to just sit on your hands while others curse your religion.

And, of course, curse my Country.

Sorry - I know I should keep away from those boards but if I am not there to try to defend myself, my religion and my Country,

who else is there to do so?

Gandra...If I see someone being attacked or abused in the street..I will always asist without hesitation.
If these bigots go onto the streets of any civilised nation and spout their garbage...they would be arrested because civilised people wont put up with it..
The problem with ill educated bigots is they firmly believe what they are spouting is fact....When in govenment it gets serious...as with Hitler....Sadam Hussein....both dead and deservedly so.....
Without an audiance they whither and die......You and your religion and Country will never need to defend yourselves against civilised people xxxx ;)

It's strange. I joke here on the various word threads, and yet I am Orthodox and would never do so in Real Life.

Maybe this is a way of letting out my inner self?

Who knows.

But I am fiercely proud of my religion and of my Country, and I have a large flag flying proud outside my home all the time.

Why? Well, the custom is to put out a flag just after Pesah [Passover] ends, and keep it out until Shavuot [The Feast of Weeks]. Because in the middle there are - ach, this is not the place to explain what we do and why, is it.

Only when the last war started for some unknown reason I got out my flag - it's a fairly large one on a broom handle, and I tied it to one of the scaffolding poles that hold up my solar boiler.

And it will stay up until it is in shreds, and then I will replace it with a new one.

Why?

Because I want to.

And because I can.

brief change of picture - full leg calipers [up to and around my waist] and propped up by the bride and groom.

Irèn was my first student on the Moshav, and Eyal is a gorgeous guy.

There were over 2,000 guests at the wedding celebration!

I don't think this is important enough to post in the Rant Room, because it's just another of my moans and groans.

I am classified as severely disabled. So blu88y what. But because of that I am \"supposed\" to have what they call a \"Home Doctor\".

Only I don't.

The only doctor who will come out is one that I pay for via my private emergency service - the one I have a button for that I press in case of emergencies?

My GP, who is a darling, knows full well that because of my agoraphobia, going to the clinic is very difficult for me, because even though it is only a few minutes away via my electric wheelchair or scooter, I cannot see my home from there, so I just can't go.

Now I have been given a scribbled note, handed to the little Filipinit carer of someone who lives two doors away, and who collects my monthly chronic meds each month.

I am supposed to get to the clinic at 7.30am on 10 August for blood and urine tests, and they know perfectly well that [a] I cannot get there, and would mean me setting the alarm clock to get me up at 6am in order to get dressed, let the dogs out etc.

GPs do not make house calls. My non-working non-social worker had ignored me for years until during the last war, when she was told by the IDF that my home wasn't safe.

I'm not going - I can't go - for the blood/urine tests. They know it and it would only take the nurse two minutes to drive to my home, take blood, take the filled urine cup, and go.

No, they expect me to go there when they know I just cannot?

I can't go. They know I can't go. And yet they send these scribbled noted saying I need to go for this or that test at the clinic, and/or this or that test at the hospital.

They know I'm agorapbobic. They know I suffer from major PTSD and that I don't take any meds for it because I can not get to see my doctor.

So they send garbled scribbled notes which they know I can't read, and expect me to rush and go wherever they say. Knowing that I can't go.

But I am entitled by law to a Home Doctor - someone from the Health Fund who will visit me instead of demanding that I go out because I am classified as 100% physically disabled. Even ignoring the agoraphobia.

So now I'm frightened that if I refuse to go for the blood and urine tests, they will deny me the life-saving meds I take for my BP and congestive heart failure.

Why is it that major physical disabilities are accepted once all tests and examinations have been done - OK so it took years in my case and I'm far from the only one.

But something like PTSD which is a recognised problem, especially where I live, and agoraphobia which in my case was caused by the PTSD, is just sort of \"oh pull yourself together woman\"?

This isn't a rant. It's just a \"why the heck can't such things be accepted\"?

I mean that if I were to give in and take all the cocktail of meds that they wanted me to take during the war, then they would accept that I have problems, but because I finally agreed to take just one, and had a major allergic attack to it within a couple of days, then it's

\"oh well, you won't/can't take such and such, therefore you can't be suffering from such and such.\"

It's like the pain-killers they keep wanting me to take and which I won't. One lot gave me gastric ulcers that just won't heal, and they didn't help the pain in any case.

So that rules out all NSAIDs, and being severely allergic to morphine and all morphine based drugs, I can't take those either.

So it comes down to \"oh well, if you don't need such and such, you can't really be in such pain\".

They know what's wrong with me and they know which meds cause major angioedema allergic attacks, but because I refuse to take meds that I know will cause me life-threatening problems, I'm considered to be a nuisance who will not take prescribed medication.

Oh heck, here I am, having yet another moan. Nothing to do with this board but yet another idiot coming onto the Religion board on which I post, telling us that we Jews are evil.

Another \"newbie\" who is, I am 99% certain is a previously banned poster who has re-registered under a new name.

Yes, scroll on by Gandra, ignore him. Let him post and say that my Religion is just a load of carp and stuff. Let him post and tell me and my fellow Jews that we are evil, disgusting, wicked and child abusers because we circumcise our sons at the eighth day after birth.

But how can I just sit back and let someone come onto a board which is a board where Judaism is discussed, only for people like that to come on to it and tell us how evil and wicked we are?

I can't.

I try so hard to sit on my hands, but if I am don't try to explain our way of life, who is there who will?

Too many people have left that board because of the hatred that is spewed by such people as this one.

But I won't go. I am very proud of my Religion and I will not just sit back and let someone curse us like that.

Sorry, end of...
