Once again I'm doing the "Finnigan Begin Again Game" !
4 Days ago I started a new Challenge to do a 30 day streak. It wasn't much except to come to SP and huddle with my teams. I was doing okay until yesterday and I put myself last and never did get around to huddle. One day I even came around to log in my fitness and food !
Trying so hard to get involved once again with what I know is the best way for me to work the program of living a healthy lifestyle. I know that in the past I have done very well with the help from the SP Family. I don't use the word Family without the true meaning of the word. For I'd have to say that those that have been with me here on SP know more about my life and the daily fight to lose weight and keep the blood glucose numbers within check, than my natural family.
There are so many wonderful people here that know of that daily battle. My family are all small. What they call normal people. What am I not normal. What does that word mean to be normal. We all have things that we have to fight. Drinking, smoking, gambling, shopping, hording, food, exercise. Now that I named a few, why do people think that you can just drop pounds with out much work at it.
Why does it seem that of all those additions, everyone seems to think that all you have to do is cut down on what you consume and you will lose those pounds. It just doesn't work that way. I know! It just shows more than some of those other problems.
Today I begin again. Set up my fitness plans and review better times for eating. Thank God for the wonderful site that holds my good, bad and ugly times. I'm back once again. Planning to make it this time for the 30 day run on getting here to the site daily. Huddle with my 7 teams and offer support to others.
Thanks everyone ! Kay & The Pups

We have all wondered how things would change as we get closer to everyone getting health care one way or another. At first I didn't really think that things had changed. Except that I'd been followed every three months by my doctor. Then he started making the apt. for every four months. I wasn't getting better, nothing had really changed, but it was fine with me to wait another month.
That was the beginning of the change. As my diabetes continued to cause more concern, I figured that the doctor would tell me to come back sooner than waiting that extra month. No, once again it was for four months. Then I over heard the receptioist telling a patient that was looking to start up with this office that she wouldn't be able to be seen by a doctor until Sept. this was at the beginning of May ! She had a problem, her old doctor wouldn't write her a script and she would need to have a script writen for her high blood pressure. She would see what could be done. If I had not been in need of seeing my doctor I would have told her to take my apt.
After this last hospital stay. The discharging PA wanted me to be seen by my doctor ASAP, I had an apt. for Aug. 19th and that was the best they could do. And a follow up apt was made for another PA in a week after discharge.
In the mean time I was seen by what I was told over the phone was an apt. for a Diabetic Educator and I was feeling better for sure she would be able to answer my question about meals and snacks and how to take my insulin around that schedule of eating smaller meals and having three snacks. This means that I'm eating nearly every 3 hours. She wasn't a Diabetic Educator and couldn't answer my one question. Asked the PA that I was seen by after my hospital stay.
She really didn't have an answer to my question. Other than play with the insulin until you get it right. Which I took to mean under 150 regularly and not spiking up to 300. That hasn't happened yet !
So here I wonder, how long does someone newly put on insulin go for help when you are told one thing and when you get there you find out that they don't know any more about anything than you do. With the screw up on my referal to the endocrinologist today. I am finding that no one knows what is going on, Not the patient, the Doctor, PA -no one !
I'm out here looking for answers and there doesn't seem to be anyone who knows the answer that I can get it from. Everyone wants to bill for their service, but yet I was discharged on June 13th with one question which still hasn't been answered. I know where Health Care in America is going. I have an apt. tomorrow with my Vet and he said he'd help me with the insulin problem.
So for any one dealing with a problem that your family doctor can't seem to help you with, contact your family Vet ! I'm sure you will get better care and service there.
God Bless Americans, we really need it !

What a wonderful morning at the Great Escape! Ever have the feeling that you are someplace but that no one else knows that you are there? NO, well I sure did this morning. I got to the Road that takes you to the parking lots for the Great Escape and there was no one around. I drove down the road and found the parking lot closest to the bridge over rT 9 and parked. It was no that early that I'd be the first person to arrive so where was everyone else? I solo walked across the bridge and then I arrived at the gates to enter the Park, there was one that was open and I entered. Looking always looking for another human being.
No there was no one any where to be seen? Do I have the right day, time, place. YES ! ! ! I kept walking further and further into the Park and yet it was a Ghost Town. Not another living being around to be seen.
I started to hear faint music and so I figured that when I worked as a nurse we always gathered for our park affairs at the Plaza; so over the bridge I went and the music kept getting louder and finally I saw people! Yes, this must be the right place for they all had on shirts that said Walk in the Park !!!
I turned and there was Judy and Pat together! So I go myself registered and found that my nieces the three youngest great nieces and Kylie there Mom had made it to the Park and they also had come in the way I did! Scary
The others found a golf cart with a man telling everyone to park at the Plaza and enter ! No one for Kylie and I !
I want to thank Pamela, Dawn, (the three M&M"S) Emma, Richard & Samuel for coming to the walk and I sure hope that you all had a wonderful time at the Park on the rides and doing all the attractions that you could ! Thanks again for Walking with the 518 Team Great meeting you and hope that in the future we will be able to gather and have more time to share the SPark program ! Wishing You all the success as you journey along.
Judy & Pat, great to see you there. Pat that was a great surprise. When you and Judy get me out for a walk you sure do like to add those hills and dales don't you. It was really a great walk ! Elizabeth I'm sorry that we didn't connect at the Park. maybe at the next gathering.
Kylie, thank you so very much for Walking with Us. Kasi, Ally, & Lia you gals did a wonderful job of walking right along the planned walk way. I really enjoyed seeing how those Charactors just kept coming over to see the three of you! It has to have been those wonderful headbands. No, that wasn't it. It has to have been your bubbly personalities. That is it ! Sure hope that the picture of the three of you girls with the Bear and Judy, Pat and Myself comes out okay and that we can post it to the Team Site.
Once again I had a wonderful time and sure hope that everyone did !
