Dear friends,

I'm starting to pull back slightly from Care2 as much of what's happening in my life seems to be reflected upon what's going on here.

1, I'm about to have minor surgery which we hope should kill the pain in my ear since the last 7 going on 8 years. We're also hoping that the surgery will have fall over effect on my headaches as that's the only thing wrong they've fond on me. I have a membrane in my nose that's 4 times larger than normal. It creates pressure & constant pain in my right ear. I'm tired of always having that pain. So for the next few weeks to a month, I will not be here all that much. I also in the mist of this need to take care of our taxes for 2006.

2, I get a lot of petitions to sign, invites to join groups, asked to contribute to animals in need etc etc.

Petitions I'll sign. But I really dislike getting one e-mail with 10 - 15 petitions to sign at once. As much as I realize it's easier. It takes a lot of time to get them all done. But, if done with easy http addresses - OK. Please eliminate extras to read. With my headaches - I just delete at this point I simply do not have the strength to deal with it.

Invites to join groups. NO - I've joined one "the Migraine group" of late. I will not join more. As a matter of fact I'd really like to delete all the ones I seem to be a part of & most of them I can't. I will not be active in any other than the Migraine group at this time. There I may be able to support others as well as get some support.

Contributions to charitable causes. I do most of our contributions in October each year. There are times I do more. I get many where I just look at the information & get sick from looking at the pictures alone. 1, my headaches get worse - please have some consideration for a women who had CHRONIC DAILY HEADACHES, I don't need the added stress. 2, every time I don't donate I feel guilty for not helping. 3, There are times we have to be strong and let a pet/animal go. There are times when being humane means to let them "rest" in peace. I will  not contribute if I feel an animal is better off in another place. You may not agree - but I do believe there are times WE have to be strong for them.

Horse slaughter. I'm totally against horse slaughter. I was recently ATTACKED here on Care2 because of my views on horse meat in Sweden. I want to put it to you all like this. I did not ever see horse meat in a grocery store in Sweden until I went home in 2005 for my mother's 70th birthday. I was home for about 16 days & went to many grocery stores in that time. I only saw horse meat once in a store. I was appalled. The article compared it to higher sales than mutton. I have to tell you, mutton is NOT a normal meat served in Sweden & Swedish cuisine. Nor does the average Swede eat horse meat. It's very interesting that the article did NOT include MOOSE, DEER, ELK & BOAR in the discussion. Since the MAD COW DISEASE scare in Europe, many countries have had to add new meats to their diet. In Sweden you can today far easier locate MOOSE, DEER, ELK & BOAR in the meat departments. I never saw that when I was back home before. This is all in direct result/response from the MAD COW situation.

In the US, each case is almost blown over as nothing. In Europe to this day, it's always on their minds. Try to understand this & put it into relation to the meats supplied in Europe.

To this day I know no one who eats horse meat at home in Sweden. I'm 47 years old & have many friends who would not ever consent to doing so. Do not believe that horse meat is what most Swedes eat. They don't.

There are however a lot of immigrants in Sweden these days. In a country with 12 million inhabitants, 3 million now originate in other countries - - - their food habits are not those of NATURAL BORN SWEDES to SWEDISH PARENTS.

I'm proud of my heritage. Just as proud as any American is of theirs. I get most upset when accused with poor data about my NATIVE SWEDEN.

Sweden's not perfect - but they're far better at protecting the ENVIRONMENT, ENDANGERED SPECIES, HEALTH CARE, WOMEN'S RIGHTS & GLOBAL WARMING.

Please from now on, be a little considerate in who you refer me to in posts etc. I've been blocked by one woman who feels she's entitled to ATTACK me with data that's inaccurate. I've blocked her back & will not do anything towards anything she does from now on.


Please try to understand..............
