A Note from Nicole Hodson, Executive Director
 
     Many more years ago than I’d like to admit, I started a craft project that came with instructions that were, well… lacking.  I’ve done a lot of cross stitch and needlepoint, but this is a three-dimensional plastic canvas piece of a haunted Halloween house.  It’s a BIG project with horrible instructions.  

I bought it when my son was still young enough to have enjoyed it.  He turned 24 years old today, so that gives you a clue as to how long I’ve been holding onto this project.  Not being the kind of person who likes to give up, I’ve kept this unfinished piece with the intent of completed it… someday.  

turned fifty last month and decided that “someday” had come.  Over the years I’ve completed tons of other craft projects but started each one with a little bit of guilt over this one incomplete item.  No more!  I want a clean slate for the future and the emotional freedom that comes with taking on new projects without thinking about what’s lurking in my craft bin.  

So, I dug out my
little haunted house.  Surprisingly, all of the pieces and those terrible instructions made it through two moves.  Sigh… here we go. 

I’ve been working on the project for a few weeks now.  All of the pieces, big and small (and some of them are REALLY small!) are stitched, and I’ve moved onto assembly
.  With the help of my husband and a few glasses of wine (to calm my nerves!), I’ve managed to get most of the house assembled; leaving only the chimney, fence, tiny ghosts and bats to attach.  It’s really starting to look great.  And with each piece I finish, I have a huge sense of accomplishment.  You’d think I’d won the Nobel prize!
 

Why am I telling you this?  Because we all have unfinished projects hiding like skeletons in our closets.  Maybe like me you have projects or goals you’ve begun, but have abandoned?

CHOLESTEROL TESTS: SENDING THE WRONG MESSAGE


Keeping it simple for the public, LDL was generally referred to as the “bad” guy that clogs our arteries while HDL was the “good” guy because it removes cholesterol from the arteries. In the light of

Most practitioners have a basic awareness of the general comings and goings of cholesterol in the body; that most of the body’s cholesterol is carried through the bloodstream in the form of lipoproteins known as LDL (low-density lipoproteins) and HDL (high-density lipoproteins) and that the LDL delivers cholesterol to relevant tissues while HDL removes it from the arteries and transports it to the liver. 

We now know that LDL can be fractionated into 7 different types (see diagram). Two of these are good for you (LDL 1 and 2) and deliver the much needed cholesterol throughout the body. The other five; (LDL 3,4,5,6,7) are dangerous because they have been damaged in some way due to a poor diet and metabolic “wear and tear”.
