Dealing with loss and maintaining health
Saturday, December 05, 2009
That dreaded phone call came the day after Thanksgiving. Craig had passed away.
My 54 yr. old brother in law had been struggling only a few weeks with a new found health issue and it had taken his life.
When life hits you with a wrecking ball the last thing you want to do is count a calorie, but I did. I made up my mind that even when life sends you a storm, keep up your healthy lifestyle, just as you need to continue breathing. I refuse to medicate with food. I will pray, shout, cry, talk or journal, but I will NOT lean on food. Food is no longer my therapy, but rather a pleasant necessity. While I cry I will only have a Kleenex and my Bible in my hand...not a brownie.
