little better but not great

Friday, November 08, 2019

Except one great right now is my younger son and I are getting along. This afternoon I asked if he wanted to take a little walk with me and he said not really but I will. I wanted to tell him that with things between his brother and me at a stand still, it didn't look like we'd be going to Missouri over Christmas. He said he didn't understand his brother's behavior as it didn't seem like him. When he saw I was upset, he asked a couple of times if I needed a hug and gave me one. It was just a little 10 minute walk to the end of the block and back. First exercise I've done in a while. The Halloween candy is all gone so I guess I'm eating less sugar but still over eating. My weight this morning was a bit lower than on Tuesday but still high. I am doing water again so a step in the right direction. Right now I'll be happy to just maintain for a while as don't seem to be inspired to get back on plan fully. I'll get there but still not where I need to be emotionally.
Thanks for all the great comments from SP friends.

    So sorry things are difficult between your older son and you. BUT so proud of your younger son! He shows a lot of empathy in this situation. That's huge @ his age.

    HUGS and hope you have a peaceful weekend.

    Is your DS in pain or taking pain medication? That could easily explain why he is acting so differently.

    I would be scared if I was him. Scared about staying in the service, scared That I might not be physically able do the work, scared of being discharged. He has a lot of pressures on him at such a young age and not much experience to face these things.

    I hope you all find a way through this difficult time. Hoping Thanksgiving can help heal your family.

    emoticon Great news!
    Sounds like your younger son is grieving about the older one too. Perhaps you can console each other.

    Peace and Care
