hi on this lovely fall saturday
this support network is a God send to me.
i have to tell you - my heart and my soul are breaking because i know my son does not love himself enough to DO SOMETHING to improve his health. i was discussing a better diet with him - i try to do my very best at home - especially since i am also trying to get my weight down.
he just blurted out - 'so i will have my gall bladder out and i will be ok'. to say how shocked i was - well i nearly fell off my chair.
what the heck is he thinking. can he not remember a few days ago how the pain was!? he is complaining how awful the meds are and how he will be glad to finish with them - the side affects and all!
why would he treat himself like that - just plainly dismiss it all - i don't understand except to say - he does not think he is worth changing - he is too lazy to make the changes needed or he just DOES NOT GET IT. he will get older - every day that passes his body says - 'hey mister - i will get back at you for the way you treat me!'
i am breaking my back to shop, prepare and feed good meals.
the person who should be supporting me and smiling and thanking God i am here is not doing that - and the other person who i take care of - well all i can say is i don't believe i can bear any more of these burdens.
i will engage all of my intelligence and muster all the courage i can to take care of myself - but it is just so very disappointing.
thank you again for every good wish and thought you send my way!

    Your son is not ready to change. The best thing you can do is keep getting healthier yourself. This is the best example for him. If you are healthy, it will make it easier to help him out when he is finally ready. emoticon

    I am truly sorry for you and all the unsung heros of the planet.

    but cop-outs are always easier than making an effort to do the right thing all the time-- thanks for the reminder!

    no matter how sad or difficult it is for you, you cannot do this for him...this is something he has to do for himself....the hardest part is having to watch him do it...
