You are all so wonderful! Thank you thank you thank you for your wonderful wisdom. I am so excited it is amazing to me, I for the first time in a long time feel optimistic and hopeful... such a great feeling.
Julie, Yes I have been to a doctor recently
we (my Dh darling husband) and myself go every three months for a check up and blood work.
Dh is diabetic but he is under control with metforman. I have an A1C every three months like he does because I have a family history of diabetes, everyone in my immediate family IS insulin dependent type 2 diabetic... not me, not yet. I was diabetic when I was pregnant so that increases my risk. I am also post menopausal so that bumps it up again. so far, I am fine. I think it will only get better now with my new food choices.
my thyroid is perfect, yep we checked... and I am all the way through menopause, and hormone levels are stable.
I had a blood draw last saturday and have a doctors appointment next saturday. I think he will be happy with my new outlook.
More about me... I have a 30 year old son who will be getting married December 18th.
I have a family child care in my home and spend my days tending 6 toddler / preschoolers and 2 first graders. I am also the President of our local family child care association. In fact there is a white sheet cake in my refrigerator right now for our meeting tomorrow night
as a rule I would have had two chuncks, no more...
I have been married to Bill for 5 years, we met September 2002. Bill is an amazing wonderful man who I adore. He makes me smile every day and has shown me how to live & laugh.
I was married before to a wonderful man named Michael, he died of brain cancer January 2002.
We have a dog Willie, he is a crazy old pug and makes us giggle. we also have 8 birds that call our home theirs.
Going in cruises is how I love to vacation. usually to Mexico because I can drive to LA and I am to afraid to fly (the seat size holds me back). I hope to go to Alaska July 2011, a smaller me for this would be wonderful. Funny I thought of the cruises when looking at the book, you know cruising with this life style will be a breeze
I am so happy.
I look forward to getting to know all of you and learning enough a once that was me story.
