Eating my sorrows away

Sunday, January 03, 2021

Today is the 12th anniversary of my mom passing away. Of course it's the first thought to cross my brain this morning, at 3am when I got up for work. I work in a hospital kitchen and today I am the grill cook for a very slow Sunday. I have access to all kinds of food. Most generally I bring my own meals in , healthier that way. But......today I did not. So this morning so far I have had 2 donuts, bacon and biscuits, and hash browns. I never eat like this!! It appears that yes,I am eating my sorrows away. Thinking of Mom and missing her so terribly that I think I am trying to fix it with food...bad food at that. 😱 I'm glad I only have an hour left at work , I will do better once I'm at home. Do any of you ever do this???

    Yes. Moms will always have a special place in our hearts.
    When I worked at the hospital, the kitchen was near our office. I could smell that bacon as soon I hit the back door. They had some good cooks and bakers. One of them now has her own bakery...best apple fritters in town.

    Emotional eating and overeating when I'm tired has been a problem for me. I am trying hard to overcome it; eating too much junk doesn't solve any problems for me.

    Yes. I do it too.

    Sorry about your Mom. I can relate. My dear mother passed in 2007 and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss her.

    Emotional eating. Boredom eating.
    Get home and take good care of yourself.
    If I were feeling like you, I might write to my mom in my journal. I’d definitely take a hot bubble bath.
    These days, I’d make myself drink lots of water before continuing the bad eating slide...or maybe I’d stop.
    One minute at a time.

    I'm so sorry you're missing your mother today. I'm a strong believer in Heaven and angels, and I think your mother is with you still. I hope you can find some comfort today despite the grief that still comes 12 years later because of your mother's physical absence. I pray you'll be given a sign that your mother is with you still and loves you forever. Please take care, Tina.

    My mom died in 96 but I have put it behind me and try to remember the good times. Your mom is part of you. She would not want you feeling this way. Hugs.
