    I know one wish would be a cure for dementia. I am watching my mother's downward spiral and it ain't an easy thing to watch.
    I would also wish for animal and human abuse and cruelty to disappear.
    I don't think I can say what I wish for those people in alledged authority in hospitals and insurance companies who deny patients their necessary treatments or adequate numbers of staff to safely care for people in their time of need. It would definetly have to be seriously censored!

    I understand about the dementia problem...I watched my grandmother turn into someone I didn't know...and at the time I didn't realize what was happening...as I wasn't in nursing yet. . My heart goes out to you...I can remember my mother crying about the things my grandmother would say to her.....and I know it must be even harder for you...as you're aware of what is happening...and may feel powerless to do much about it... ((hugs)) That is definitely a worthy wish...jmho

    1. That my dad would get better.
    2. That everyone I cared about (even remotely) was happy and content in their life.
    3. That I could freeze time when I wanted to.

    Those are my wishes.

    My heart is also with you, I worked on the "special care unit" at a nursing home for a couple of years and I saw the pain that the family members went through and the pain the pts also went through. My three wishes would include the cure for cancer and AIDS, That those who run HMOS and other insurance agencies have a dose of their own med or policies so to speak and have to chose b/wee pain meds or just meds or food and see if they dont rewrite their policies. Third well I dont know maybe a world full of love instead of hate

    I would wish my Mother's Alzheimers would be cured, as well as everyone elses loved ones. Secondly, that all fatal illnesses would have cures, and lastly, that every nurse on this BB would hit the lottery!!!

    Well my wish is kind of selfish...but I wish I could be a stay at home mom again. I just feel I could do so much for my girls if I was home....of course it would mean we would have to become ind. wealthy because we can't afford to live on one income.

    Take care, Renee
    Hmmmm... all of mine seem selfish after reading the wishes of you wonderful, thoughtful, generous people.

    2. More time
    3. Bigger boobs

    Wow...you guys have given me a lot to think about! Freezing time...whoa...now there is a thought!

    I guess I would like to know...why the world had to be the way it is. How and why did hated, jealously, greed, and lying come into being, and why are so many inflicted by them?

    Ok...Wish number ONE...:

    I think I would wish that all of them would disappear, and be replaced with honesty, empathy, and LOVE !


    I wish there would be a special potion found....that when given...it would change into just the cure needed for whatever disease the person was afflicted with.


    I wish that no one would be left searching for what they didn't have.

    ...and that means Heather would get her boobs....
