Health Care, Pharmaceuticals, Personal Stuff, Make Up, Adult Stuff...It's Endless!

(Scroll down to the bottom for the Adult Stuff...!)

Medical Insurance is a huuuge issue in the United States, and since I've moved back down to Los Angeles, California, it has become more and more apparent to me the significance of really good health care coverage. I'm covered fully (I hope, anyway... I've heard some rumours to the contrary, so I'll have to investigate this a little further...) under my Health Care Benefits with my School District (I'm teaching Special Education down here..). My son, Aidan (8) is covered, too, but my daughter, Cara, who turned 19 last May, lost coverage on her 19th Birthday, so I had to search the 'Net for decent health care coverage for her. You may find yourself or a family member in the same boat, so, without a doubt, you should do your research, and choose the right Health Care Plan for you or your Loved One, whether it is your child (any age! haha!), or other relative. Oh, and I'd forgotten that you might have a 'significant other', although, aren't they covered under your regular Health Care through your job, now, or what's the deal with that? It's hard for me to follow along with the American Health Care System, since it's sooo different from the Canadian Model I'm usd to. For the record, I'm very happy with my current coverage through Kaiser Permanente, but I will have to check and see if I require additional coverage for anything that is not covered under my regular Health Care Plan.

Well, I spent many years dealing with Diabetes, first with my pregnancy with Aidan (8), when I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. Frankly, I don't think I had it the way they seemed to think I did... my sugar levels were abnormally low, and no one mentioned to me the unbelievably scary fact that I would be in harm's way during the birth, because of this. Right after I had Aidan, my regular doctor had left, thinking everything was fine, and then the next thing I remember was a whole team of doctors and nurses running in to try to raise my blood pressure, which had just plummeted after the birth. Horrifying. Oddly enough, I wasn't scared, but I did feel far too close to death, but at the time I wasn't scared at all. I just felt like I was 'slipping away', if you know what I mean. Ridiculously scary in retrospect, because I had two children, then, and needed to stay on the Earth to care for them... Thank God for those doctors and nurses... they saved my life. But that just goes to show you the importance of doing all these diabetic tests. I just wish someone had warned me about the Low Sugar Numbers as being as big a threat as the High Sugar Numbers, and then maybe I would have had some greater 'heads up'.

Then, when Aidan was about 4, I think, my husband at the time (you know Dwight form this site!), was diagnosed with insanely high Blood Sugar levels, and we started dealing with diabetes, again. You always hear about Diabetes, Type II, developing when an adult is overweight, but Dwight had dropped 35 pounds... and 35 extra pounds that he couldn't afford to lose. Neither of us had ever heard of weight loss associated with diabetes, so there was another wake up call.

Aaand, (yep, there's still more! haha!) my doctor told me, after I had Aidan and really thought I was looking good, that I better lose weight because I was at a higher risk for developing Diabetes, Type II, since I had been diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. Ugh. But that put me on a fast trac to get rid of the 'baby fat', which also included the "I'm all depressed about living in the freezing cold snow and so I feel I deserve many chocolates to compensate for the crappy weather" fat... MmmHmmm. So I developed my Apple Crumble Diet, because I really did have to wean myself off my daily habit of 5 chocolate bars per day. Yeah, that's right. No need to go back and see if you read that correctly! 5 chocolate bars a day... because they were such a great deal to buy them by the case at Costco, which I had to stop doing. No, no. Or 'Nay, Nay', as some would say! haha! I started going to the gym, again, and lost 35 pounds. I lost another 15 over the past 18 months, and now I'm a Size 7, which feels great! I'll tell you, fear of Diabetes is a great motivator to take those extra pounds off!

You know what I think would be a really good idea to stock up on before any God-forsaken Bird Flu hits? (Why don't we hear about the Bird Flu, anymore? Is it magically gone, now, or has it just lost it's place on the list of things that make it onto the News??) Anyway, Surgical Masks. I just heard a new Study where they're looking to see how useful Surgical Masks would be in the prevention of the spread of the Bird Flu (or any other type of yucky flu...). Anyway, it seems to me that if this ever did come over to North America, it might quickly become a problem to get your hands on some Surgical Masks, so here's a chance to get a 'pre-emptive strike' on this issue. I popped into to make sure they have a good supply of Surgical Masks, and they do. Just type it into the Search Bar and you'll go straight to that page.

I have to admit, I find myself looking to see if I have any wrinkles...vanity, it's sooo annoyink!! ha,ha! And that crazy Dwight was trying to look at my face up close, the other day, and I just assumed he was also trying to see if i had any wrinkles, which I felt wasn'ty fair at all, since he's not exactly wrinkle-free, himself... anyway, let me know if this works -- it looks good, though, and seems waaay less painful!

Trying desperately to quit Smoking? Good for you! More money, Less wrinkles...that should be their new Motto for the 'Stop Smoking' campaign! I always thought they shoud have a picture of someone frolicking in the Ocean in Hawaii, beside a Hospital Bed with the poor soul all hooked up to their IV, 'n everything, with a caption that read, "Where would you rather be?" Or, "Which would you rather spend your money on?" I've heard these are very effective, so it's worth a shot, right??

<Stop Smoking Today!>

Well, this is not for the Squeamish...or the Amish...ha,ha,ha! (I don't know -- maybe it is...) Anyway, I know someone who tried this, and it turned their lives around, so, if you're thinkin', "Maybe that's for me...", you could give it a whirl, so-to-speak!(Please, oh, please don't send me all the details on this one, though... ha,ha,ha!)

Schmokin' 'N Gamblin' -- they often go together, no? If you've been to a Casino, lately, and my best guess (or Bet! ha,ha!) is that you have... anyway, it's pretty much 'Make a Bet, Take a Drag, Push the Button, Take a Puff...' .

So, remember that Smoking is Hazardous to Your Health, please don't smoke while you're pregnant (mostly females, here... ha,ha!), and Second Hand Smoke is harmful and annoyink to those around you, so be mindful of others if you're a Smoker...

Is that enough for the Warnings? I hate those Ads on TV that show you the health effects of smoking -- I say if it's sooo gross that you can't watch it, it won't get through to anyone. I think a better campaign would be to show the non-smokers havin' a great time in Hawaii with the money they saved on cigarettes over the years, versus someone in a hospital bed hooked up to the Oxegyn, with a slogan that read:"Where would you rather spend your time?" Don't you think that would be a better ad? And hopefully there's be some nice bathing suits involved...

But, it's a Free World, Thank Goodness, and you makes your own choices, right? So if you're a Smoker, here's a good link for you...
