Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Hi Lisa, welcome aboard!. Sorry you are having health problems that you need to deal with but sounds like you are taking care of them. Oregon, and Portland are such great places when you enjoy the outdoors. If only we could have sunny weather all the time. I look forward to reading your posts.

hello! In the subject-line, "New" is in quotes because I apparently joined this group at the end of 2009! Who knew? Not me!

During the past 2 years I've struggled with being diagnosed with Graves' Disease, hyperthyroidism, and all that goes along with the disease. Now that my thyroid is getting back to normal (I hope, crosses fingers), so is my metabolism. I've put on about 15 pounds on my already overweight body in the past 2 months, my self-esteem has plummeted and my freakin' pants don't fit! I'm looking for ways to build my motivation, get active and to help others with their journey, as well.

Let's see, here are my deets: 38, live on the East side, work from home and love doing outdoorsy-type things (it's getting off the couch that is challenging for me!), thrifting and cooking.... I've got a membership at the 24-hour Fitness on McGloughlin, if anyone is interested in meeting up.

I look forward to interacting more with this great group.

- lisa

P.S. I'm not really a cuttlefish, as my icon photo would lead you to believe. :)
