Long Term Care – Who’s Going To Pay For It?

For someone who has not experienced postpartum depression, it’s easy to say “Get a grip! Snap out of it!” I know, because I said the same things after the birth of my first child. I experienced a few days of baby blues after Kage was born, and then all was well.

I think we would all do well to think more about the way we shall be than the way that we are. Want to remain active, energetic, fun to be with, bright of mine, relevant, and valuable to your world? Then think to your future.

For 2006, once you have used 50 worth of medications, you are 100% responsible for paying for the full amount of the drug until you reach the 00 Catastrophic coverage limit. This range between 50 and 00 where you have to pay for 100% of your drug expenditures is known as the “donut hole”.

Fats, or lipids, have gotten a bad rap. They are blamed for everything from bulging bathing suits to life-threatening heart attacks. However fat can be used as energy by the body when glycogen (stored glucose) is depleted, or in the absence of carbohydrates. We can’t live without fat in our diets. But because fat supplies twice as many calories as do protein and carbohydrates, eating too much fat packs on the pounds.

It may give you some small comfort, but you’re not alone as you toss and turn: the U.S. Department of health and human services in 2007 reported that about 64 million Americans experience insomnia each year.

Department of HUD also has a great site for younger children where they learn about their neighborhoods. There’s interactive field trips plus a scavenger hunt.

But it began unraveling quickly and got out of hand. I was very tired from my lack of sleep the night before. Mia was very tired but couldn’t settle down to go to sleep. She cried and whined a lot. Kage was very tired but refused to take a nap.
