I haven't been home (Texas) in 5 years. Last time I was there was to place my father's headstone on his grave. My father died 7 years ago and it was a catalyst to my large weight gain. Anyway...heading back south to see my mother in Texas and all these emotions are starting to overwhelm me. I know people are supposed to be all excited when they go home but what happens if when you go home that is the complete opposite of how you really feel? Many, many feelings are bubbling up inside of me. I realize a lot of my emotions have to deal with grief issues. Yes, I have therapy and I think the therapy was instrumental in me turning my life around 2 years ago when I started to get healthy again. However here I am again with all the feelings RIGHT IN MY FACE! BAM!
I'd love some suggestions, if people are willing to offer them, to how to handle grief/feelings/emotionally upheaval.
Thanks for any help you can give!!
