This site and all the people on it are a continuation of growth for all involved. It is so true that we are our brother's keeper, we are put here for each other, strangers or not!
With a deep faith in my Savior and trust and hope in all that is offered on this site, I will do my best as HE allows me to do to better myself physically, spiritually, and emotionally!
We may not always get what we WANT, but we will always get what we need at the time, on HIS timetable, not ours!
1. Get off some of my medications.
2. Keep the diabetes at the stage it is in now.
3.Lose total of 152 pounds.

I reside in Mid -Michigan, love to travel. I have one daughter who is my pride and joy.
The greatest thing in my life is my continual discoveries of how HE works in my life!
I look forward to being able to get healthier, shed the weight I need to lose, and start to travel again.
I take nothing for granted in my life, my attitude is gratitude.

thanks for the comment on my blog.
i loved the new machine for the first month, i was glad to finally get some uninterrupted sleep.
however, they had me bring my card in about 2 weeks ago to download it and i dont know if this is related but around a week ago, i started having probs with it.
it seems almost like it isnt blowing air into the mask at all, or very little.
it blows out so hard when im wearing the mask that it blows out and then sucks back really hard against my face, making a loud noise each time.
once i lay down and begin to sleep, it stops but if i move, if i roll over, if i adjust my pillow, or even if i take a breath thru my mouth, it starts up again.
I called and they checked it online and said it was fine.
but that night was just as bad, so i unhooked it and went back to my old one which is set to 10 pressure. the new one is on 9 which isnt a huge diff, but should be blowing less when on full pressure.
they say if i dont use it so many nights my ins wont pay and i will have to take it back, but they can have it if they cant tell me what the prob is.

Thanks so very much for your support during my obli~cation....now I'm ready for a REAL one...lol! At least the issue has been solved and I'm FREE...FREE...FREE from ever having to endure the torture again! Now I'm just mad at myself for taking 38 years of crap before I blew....every dog has his day eventually right?
Hope you are having a great Sunday and getting lots of rest! I'm settling in and finally worked up the nerve to step on the scale...only gained 2 pounds and did plenty of eating all of my favorite foods....so for that I'm relieved. I probably burned up stress calories until I got away from the nut squad!
