Is A Goose Just A Big Duck?? Country Goose Gourd, by me, 2012
I am struggling with rising weight, rising blood sugar levels and depression... this onset started this past February when I almost died from extreme dehydration brought about by (discovered in hospital) microscopic colitis. The medication I have to take now and the emotional fallout from this I believe is behind my recent binging and not taking care of myself properly. I've found this website and I know it will be helpful!! I believe in prayer lots and lots too... so... if you read this, please say a little one for me!!
I am currently living in Florida, but am a transplant from Maryland where I lived most of my life. I moved here 6 years ago to take care of my father, who has passed on now. That was all I did, so I don't know many people here and very much miss my three daughters and five grandchildren! But, I DO enjoy living here in my father's home (with my own pool) and I do love Florida overall. Last April I discovered gourds and gourd artwork which has been fabulous!!! You can view my work in etsy.com if you'd like to by copy/pasting this link, if you'd like to see what keeps me busy.... https://www.etsy.com/listing/98763248/gour
Today as I update my SparkPage, it is Day 12 here, and I continue to be more and more excited about finding SparkPeople and continue to learn something new here every day. The most precious thing I've learned is I am not alone anymore... I have met wonderful new friends here in SparkPeople. I have had incredible success lowering my blood sugar levels from a high the day before I found SparkPeople of 375 to a fasting blood sugar this morning of only 118!! I have hope again there will be a better tomorrow and many many more wonderful days to come!
Bless SparkPeople and take good care... come back and visit me again soon!
I hope to get my weight and elevated blood sugar levels back under control!!
I hope I keep my current level of enthusiam going since I found SparkPeople for the rest of my life!!!
Utilizing SparkPeople tools more and more every day (learning how to do it too.. lol); reading & learning from all the incredible information available here; joining teams and posting messages.

Love all kinds of crafts, but have become addicted to gourd art since discovering it last year.
I have numerous health issues: obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, narcalepsy, sleep apnea, REM sleep disorder, and depression (yikes)
