Wow, what an exciting day. I have had so many cyber friends and real friends wish me well. Alot of my emotional baggage when I wrote the line THE LINE HAS BEEN DRAWN, was seeing this day fast approaching and so much physical pain from knees (left in particular). To my friends who took the time and read the blog and could read between the lines and give me some great advice, many thanks go out to you.
Surgery didn't seem to be an option with the problem being in the head. I did some investigation and found the famous Radar Institution. The specialize in eating disorders and in history probably one of the first among such places. I have been making calls and found the closest one to Fl is in Ok. They did a consultation over the phone with me. Their treatment team met and the Medical Dr. on board wanted to know (since I sleep with O2) for certain I did not suffer sleep apnea, For some reason, after the consult, I postponed the study for a couple of weeks, to finish up some tasks (didn't all happen but some did).
I went yesterday to get my results from Dr. Tonner. He got me ready to fly away to the eating disorder clinic, and gave me my flu shot too! PTL He didn't quite understand a little speciality psych ward within a big pschy within a "real" (son's term) hospital. He looks like Bill Nye the science guy and had a most comical expression on his face. He did smile when I told him real......anyway he keyboarded away and said take care and was gone to his next 15 min. with another patient. Yes that is what Dr. aim for or less. Suggestion have all questions written down so you can go rapid fire!
I went to the window they gave me my copy of the report and I gave them the fax and phone numbers to send my information. I was so anxious today, since Ok. is central time I couldn't call them or so I thought until 10 my time Oh contrare, they called me, they received the fax results in time yesterday for the M.D. to go over them and approve me for treatment! I am to come asap. They meet me at the airport and return me there after the 21 day treatment program. I have never been so happy to sign myself in to a psych ward!
Surely, they will have some insights about my head and thinking. What I learn I'll share in a blog. It's probable in a motivational article on spark, they have some good ones. I want to know more about me and self defeating behaviors, I have tried for 50 years. I am ready to see if they can point me in the right direction. Nellie this is a Christ centered program that uses the 12 steps of A.A. so I know if that Mayan calendar is right I will be raptured and that is O.K. too.
So, dear ones these are things I have been up to, since I have not been regularly checking in. I have received so much support here Cherione, Nellie, Jenny, and Sandra, all of you are so encouraging. I feel like Sally Field when she accepted her oscar, "You like me....you REALLY DO LIKE ME. Love, Teresa

I miss Binky. He was my little black, ornery daschund. He was tipped with brown. Brown eye brows and a tip of brown on his tail, and on his paws. He had a bright white diamond on his chest. In the winter of 04 I was taking care of my mother. We were pretty house bound she was on 0/2 24 hours a day, I decided if I could find a pound dog on the internet that I loved through the monitor and could get him by Christmas eve that would be God rewarding me for taking care of my ornery mom. Local search nothing, I kept expanding looking for a Jack Russell I thought. God found me Binky. There he was, love at first site. Yes the woman who was caring for him (their cty had no shelter) said she would meet me at Manhattan, KS. We spent the 24th exchanging Binky's home. He rode home in a big cage, asleep, when I pulled into my driveway it could have been either house. Binky marched right up the stairs to his new home. He sleep with me every night. When I moved to Florida I had to leave Binky behind. So, if you take the time to read this please do me a favor and say a little prayer that I did find Binky a good home. I know I did my best. I hope Binky does too. I loved him and always will. I will never have another pet because my heart breaks still missing Binky. Thank you for listening.

The doctor drew the line and I had already told my son I was ready to start smoking I had gained weight. The Doctor says the smoking had nothing to do with it. he put me on 800-1000 calorie a day diet. My knee is horrible my son who is an orthopedic dr. told me to go get some cortisone shots regardless of cost. So, we will do this then we will go to the gym and try to build up some muscle mass around the knee. I am keeping track of calories and will do the same with exercise and in four weeks if I haven't lost a respectful amount of weight I am going to ask him to put me in an assisted living facility. This weight is going. I just feel bariatric surgery is not for me. It is scary. So this is the plan. Of coarse, I will keep you updated. I love my games I play here and my friends. Pastor Joe I'm praying for you. Chris, you little gnome your head shot is terrific. So long for now. I'll let you know how the Dr. visit goes. Stayed tuned.
