Hey Diane, I didn't say I didn't like snow ... I just hate WINTER!
Winter is a nice place to visit but you wouldn't want to live there ;-)
Lanie: Yes, I know steak is good ... eat it all the time. I was just illustrating my new, healthy outlook :)
Funny you should mention Vitamin D. Last night I saw a local newscast. In the health section they were talking about what appears to be a rising epidemic in Vitamin D deficiency. Some doctors are saying its the use of sunscreens and sunblocks which actually block Vitamin D absorption. LOL! Also, if you're diabetic and taking oral meds you may be low on Vitamin B-12 (I was).
I hope you are feeling better. I just want you to know how much you have helped me. Your courage, wisdom, and willingness to share are truly inspirational. We all have up and down days. I have also been struggling with my health, and emotionally (I feel the loss of my parents the most during holidays (they lived with me and I lost Dad in 2005 and Mom in 2006)).
It during those dark days when I look back through my memories. While they can bring about the feelings of loss even more, they also bring out the smiles.
Thankyou for all your support. I do feel better the past few days. Winter has moderated somewhat, at least temporarly. Yesterday and Friday it was close to 40, and it's supposed to be in the thirties again today . It sure makes a difference when the sun is shining. I do still wish Spring would hurry up and come though. I quess I'll just need to be patient and wait another six or eight weeks. We probably will get a couple more feet of snow betweem now and then though.
