I would like to start out by losing enough weight so that I could walk more. I need to learn healthy eating. I also am a person of Christian values, raised a Baptist and went to a Methodist College earning a degree in psychology. My first job was to much stress, little did I know I had been manic-depressive all my life, with the Lord leading me though it. Finally, in 1993, after losing my job, seeking help on a psych. ward and getting the proper meds....after four hospitalizations I became more stable. then the psychiatrist absolutely insisted (he knew best) I go on disability. This wrecked my self image. I set goals and had always achieved them. It seemed as though my spring had sprung and I never would get things right again. Two years ago, after no mania episodes for 12 yrs, my streak ended with a bout of mania and with the help of a devoted friend who would not abandon me, I made it though and now things are looking up. God always puts a friend where he knew all along you were going to need one. It's one of my mantra's and there are no random occurrances, there is no luck...we are being taking care of by our wonderful Heavenly Father. He has commissioned each of us to spread his word also. Thank you for reading this. I am here... if I am not out walking trying to find myself. lol. T.

My Goals:
eight hours sleep. 8 glasses of water. 2-5 fruits and veggies. 15-20 min and on up a day of physical activity. Use the knowledge learned at Radar. I need to focus on my self esteem issues and physical issues of aching knees.

My Program:
To the best of my ability stay close to the ADA program. Stay with the exercises and go to therapy to strengthen the muscles around my knee. To drink water/with lemon for beverage of choice. To go on Saturdays to Addicted since I do not care for the extremes of OA

Personal Information:
Live in FL originally from NE MO miss cold weather and snow a little bit. Like all kinds of crafts, however, I am going into some mutimedia art form to use as therapy..see where it leads. I am the only judge of my art work. I keep telling myself that, but I've been to harsh a critic on others so it is no consolation to me.

Other Information:
I also lived for several years in KS. So, of coarse I love the Wizard of Oz. I almost didn't make it to the pottie (at home) when the mean monkeys came. Then my son had this as his SR class play back in MO. I grew up on the banks of the Mississippi, 60 miles due North of Mark Twains and Molly Bown's hometown, Hannibal, MO I loved the Titanic but am sick they did not let her rest in peace. I love Luanne Rice novels. Have had cataract surgery and other issues with eyes so reading books has been shelved, no pun intended. ONE OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES IS .."DANCING CAN BE MAGICAL AND TRANSFORMING. IT CAN BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO A TIRED SOUL; MAKE A SPIRIT SOAR; UNLEASE LOCKED AWAY CREATIVITY; UNITE GENERATIONS AND CULTURES; INSPIRE NEW ROMANCES OR REKINDLE OLD ONES; TRIGGER LONG FORGOTTEN MEMORIES; AND TURN SADNESS INTO JOY, IF ONLY DURING THE THE DANCE.
