I try not to dwell on my own subsequent unemployment and for the most part I am successful. The lessons have been well worth it. One person can make a difference by taking a stand and i have received letters from the Senator who assures me that she is taking this seriously and i hope this is true. The people who owned this facility own seven more throughout the state and i know from my research that this is a prevalent problem throughout the country. In starting a petition for adult care home reform in North Carolina, I have learned to be proactive and in the time it is taking to see the results of all of this, I am learning patience.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services’ Physical Activity Guide, adults from 18 to 64 should be getting in 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate exercise per week. Moderate exercise consists of brisk walking or light aerobics. The report also suggests a more vigorous regimen that only requires 1 hour and 15 minutes per week engaging in such activities as running, swimming, or cycling.
Another option you could take is to apply for a medical loan. We all know that certain treatments really cost a lot of money and if you can’t finance your loved one’s treatment with existing resources then you might want to go with this option. There are a lot of financial institutions that actually offer these services. If you go online you will find that there are a number of trustworthy banks that offer medical loans. So you may want to consider this course of action as well.
Everybody will need LTC at some point. Some may require it at the age of 80 while others at the age of 18. Surprised? Don’t be as this is a fact that was revealed by healthcare specialists. The truth of the matter is that 40 percent of LTC patients are between the ages of 18 to 64.
Second, try to choose a realistic timeline for losing weight. It took years to put on those excess poinds. Don’t expect to lose them all in a month! Get a good idea of how much weight you should reasonably expect to lose each week or month by reading your diet book thoroughly and following its guidelines.
Focus on the cluster of questions around stem cell research and cloning for a moment. One group of “dedicated and committed researchers” considers the human embryo a ball of cells and nothing more. Because it is undeveloped and would not survive out of the womb, any research is permissible, including the new proposals. The medical benefits, remote as they may be, wholly justify the action. At the opposite pole, many of us Christians (I only wish I could say the majority) believe that from conception onwards the embryo has the full status of humanity. On principle, this allows no research or use not for the benefit of that particular embryo, including both present and new potential uses.
The biggest key to fighting off this foe is to take personal inventory and actually realize that you may be suffering from it. There isn’t a pill for compassion fatigue, but there is something called “Take-A-Vacation” therapy. Recognize your own limitations and take proactive steps to remedy the situation. The best thing I did to curb my own case of Compassion Fatigue was to get lost in the jungles of Costa Rica. When I returned to my job after two weeks, I was refreshed, and i began the process of recovery. Ten years later, I am still in the health and human services profession.
I was able to get Kage to take a nap today, so i took Mia and laid down on the bed and slept. I felt so great when I woke up, hence the good mood I’ve managed to keep going for the last six hours.
