Surprise surprise, what I posted here hasn't changed. Like, not even a little bit.

Talk about coincidence, my copy has just turned up as well.
Although I don't think I'll be having the same mental images as you...

I was kneeling by the toilet at the time - I had lower abdomen pain and thought I was going to be sick. I found out later that fainting from pain is something that my dad does, and my sister has on occasion. I have once in the past too. My dad and sister both know it is coming though, and my dad can willpower his way into retaining consciousness. I had no warning at all. I think technically I fainted twice, one after the other? I was briefly conscious enough to eat a chalk tablet at least, although I don't remember it.  I had my blood pressure tested when sitting and standing, and an ECG, and there is nothing wrong there. There is literally no medical reason I -should- have fainted.

Now that Weisse and I know this is a thing, and a thing that most of my family has, we can keep a better eye on things in the future and make sure I'm not standing up or driving or anything similar if I'm in severe pain.

Do you know if there is a clean veggie program?
No pesticides need be used on cloned vegitable matter.

Wow! That is scary!

I have a paradoxical Vegas nerve response to sitting up.  I can faint. Blood vessels get bigger, not smaller as they should. Blood pressure drops.

Were you in motion when this happened?
Hope you continue to improve.

Fainted early Saturday morning, fell over backwards in the bathroom, and hit my head on a tiled floor. Weisseman called an ambulance for me, had a load of tests done, and I seem to have been very lucky and come away with nothing worse than a headache (and even then, a fairly minor one) and a stiff neck and shoulder.

I'm still taking it easy for the next week, just to be on the safe side - No running around with Kimba, for instance. But I seem to be totally fine.
news forum / Re: Trump the GOP and Democrats. A new path or more of the same.

Many politicians mislead their voters, but Trump and the GOP seem to feel
they need to lie about everything that doesn't help them get votes. Some
may feel they all lie, but over the last several years the GOP has gone to
the extreme. Especially after Obama was elected. For example The GOP
used a large number of lies about the ACA trying to defeat it. The GOP
do anything to reduce government, even to starve and let the weak
die. Most people who vote as republican are good caring pepole who are
misled by the party leadership. Which is full of rich greedy white men who
fear the loss of money and power.

President Trump is trying to claim the latest group of people walking through
Mexico toward the U.S. is mixed with middle eastern terrorists. There is no
little evidence to justify this claim.  Trump is playing the fear game to gain
more  votes for the GOP.

Trump claims immigrants will bankrupt our country, yet  the GOP continue to
say we need to cut taxes. If the country was in such  dire straights why would 
they be doing that? If anything we need more immigrants not less. Part of the
reason the unemplyment rate is so low it due to the country needing
more workers. Most immigrants are looking for jobs, not a free ride as
Trump and the GOP claim. They will take jobs many U.S. citizens aren't
willing to do. The Dreamers Trump and the GOP want to get rid of are
well educated and have jobs now. Loosing them would hurt many
businesses due to the loss of good employees.

Trump claims the democrats won't help pass laws to make our boarder
secure even though there are more than enough GOP members of
congress to pass anything he wants.  Trump should be telling his
supporters which GOP members that are blocking him instead.

Many pkeople feel there isn't any real difference in the two parties. They
feel they are all crooks one way or another. So why vote? Well this is the
reason you should vote. If you don't like anyone running, then run for office
yourself. Or support someone else.  If II wasn't visually disabled I would
try it my self. We need more poeple in congress who aren't millionaires.
Very rich people often have little empathy for the middle class, much
less the elderly and the poorest of  Americans.

Hi Tomed Ceht!

It's a big family here!
Without the fighting! Hurray!

No matter who you are, what you are, where you are from, what you think, what you believe,  furries are the best to be around!

For some it is the inclusiveness, some it's the family,  for some it is the zany fun!

While I specifically do not know what it is to live as a gay person,  i DO know how being excluded feels. I do not like being ostracized.  Nor will I do that to anyone else.   All furries seem this way to me,  open,  honest,  friendly.

I call myself demi-asexual personally. As I have lived with that feeling of different since as long as I can remember.
And I have been made fun of for it, being called wrong, broken, robotic, unfeeling, uncaring, etc.  People even think I am lieing. Truth is I care deeply, and love people, animals, nature,  etc...

You won't find people here who will judge.  Honestly, people are more like indifferent,  they have moved past these differences.

Don't worry, you are home.

We are everywhere! I am sitting at work,  listening to some DeadMau5, and living as a furry,  inside a large multinational conservative aerospace company!

You just never know who is, more fuzzy,  than others, but we are everywhere,  ha ha ha!
I have always had therian type dreams and feelings since age 5.  Wolves. Lots of wolves.
Then a German Shepard saved my life.   Actually 2 of them did,  twice, in separate instances.

So enough of me,  what about you??
Part of furry for me is talking to others.
If you want,  please feel free to discuss.

Thank you for the welcome! I found this site through some google searches for forums for furries. I've known I was a furry since i was about 13. I have just always felt... different. Like I was in the incorrect body. Over time my fursona became apparent to me and things started to make a little more sense since then. But like i stated before I've never spoken to another soul about being a furry. That last post was first outreach. The Furry fandom interests me because it just a bunch of other people just like that me. People that are also different. People that look at the rest of the world in a similar light as I do. I've not been part of a fandom in years and I miss the camaraderie I found in a few previous ones. I'm hoping I can meet some great people here and forge some real friendships with people that understand my secret. :)
