Sad News

Thursday, December 14, 2006

Well I had sad news my best friend passed away today. I am totally lost without her. I used to phone her everyday she was my confidant.

I feel now is the time to put to the test the emotional eating thing. Sue was overweight and her illness was caused, I believe by obestiy. When she told me she was in hospital, I joked and told her they would put her on a diet. She replied that whatever they tell me I will have to do to get well again. Unfortunately she has not got the chance, so I will have to do it for her.

I am so devastated, confused and upset, but am determined to feel these awful feelings and not stuff them down with food, my usual ploy.

I will do this for Sue - God bless you my lovely friend.

    My thoughts (and prayers if you want them) are with you.

    Don't be afraid of your emotions, just allow them to be.

    It is in the avoidance of feeling that we reach for food as our solace, so feel every emotion that surrounds you, embrace and accept that emotion, then move to the next. I know that is easier for me to say than for you to do, but know that there are people here to reach out to.

    There are several bereavement sparkteams, maybe find one that has the right feel for you and share your feelings with others who have also been there.
