Dealing with Grief
Sunday, May 17, 2015
I've been out of touch for a while. My Mother lived with me for the last 10 years and has been in failing health. Sadly last month she passed away so I've been dealing with her illness and loss for the past few months. I'm hoping I'll be able to get back into the swing of things soon but to be honest it's been quite a struggle just dealing with life and work. Totally went off the rails in the food department.
I find myself saying "I hope to start" this or that but I feel so stuck. I know this will pass and I know this experience will help me grow but it really kind of sucks all around. I saw my Mom struggle with mobility over the years and I know I'll go down the same path if I don't get my self moving and lose this weight and strengthen my body. It feels overwhelming to even think about all the things that I have to do in the aftermath of this loss. Trying to work on what to eat seems impossible. I'm just doing whatever is easy.
I think the only way to move through this is just to 'do it'. Remember to breathe...cry when I need to...be thankful for each new day... remember the good times with my Mother. There were so many. I am missing her so much.
