Thank you for the update. It's sad her parents have taken away her support system.
It's unkind actually.

Archimedes, thank you for the update. I am happy to hear that Eowyn is okay. I had been thinking about her and became concerned that maybe she wasn't okay. If you hear from her again, please give her my best regards.

I think this is one of my Spark friends you’re all writing about. I hope I have her regular email address, if I do, I’ll let her know I’m available to offer penpal-type of support.

The goal is to make your story real.

Archi I am really glad she is ok. I was so worried something had happened to her. I hope someday her parents will let her come back.

Glad to discover she is alive and not suffering. We have encouraged her to stick up for herself, and I'm afraid that her folk may believe Spark People advice to be a problem. I think her dependence on her family because of her illness is complicated for her. I do not envy her family dynamics. Of course, losing her job is a dilemma because she is even more dependent on her parents though ditching the lousy diet temptations is likely beneficial. I hope she can find her way to better health and happiness.

I can't tell you how happy I was when a friend of Eowyn's on this site contacted me a couple of days ago. Like you all, I worried that something drastic had happened to cause her to leave so abruptly.

I've passed along your well wishes and kind words. Hopefully her family life will calm down long enough that she is allowed back on this site. I don't know what caused the argument, but it was bad enough for her parents to threaten her with being kicked out of the house.

Oh, Arch. I am so happy to hear she's alright. If you do happen to hear from her again, let her know I'm sending prayers her way (as I'm sure everyone else is). Hopefully her parents will come around...it seems completely unreasonable for them to be angry that she is seeking support in her journey to be healthy. Anyway, Elaine: if you happen to find your way back onto the board, know that we are all supporting you, even if we aren't able to be in touch regularly.

Thank you for the update, Arch! I am soooo glad she is okay. I was honestly worried about her. I know she struggles with depression on top of her other health issues. Hopefully her parents will ease off a bit.

I'm glad she's OK. I'm sad that her parents are so dominant.

Give her our best if you have more contact.... Remind her she is strong...and can take control of the actions that keep her as healthy as possible.

She is surrounded by unhealthiness all the way around. I hope someone can be an advocate for her. Thank you for keeping in touch with her.

One stumble does not a failure make.

So glad you have been in touch with her, and she's okay. From her past posts concerning her parents/family, I am not one bit surprised they took control of one of the last things she could try to do for herself...find some advice, thoughts, good or bad. Perhaps she will keep in touch with you from now on. Thanks for the update.

Live, Laugh, Love!!

I've been in touch with Elaine (EOWYN). She says hello and misses everyone.

She says that she had a huge argument with her parents over this site the day her account went offline. They told her, if she didn't leave Spark People, they would kick her out of the house. Since she still lives at home and is dependent on them for her care, she had to comply.

She is still struggling to keep her fluid and calorie intake under control. She lost her part time job, but not as a result of being a bad employee. There just wasn't enough work to stay on. She misses the money, but is glad she doesn't have the job because she said her eating habits were terrible at work.

That's all I know.

I followed her posts but didn't reply that often for fear of saying the wrong thing. Plus, I'm not doing that well myself.

Tried to offer support once or twice.

Good to see that others are reaching out to her. It is concerning that she hasn't answered private messages from those of you who knew her better.

If you see this Elaine, Good luck to you!!

I have messaged her a few times, too, but like ARCHIMEDESII, have had no reply. She was also very good at replying to my messages. in all honesty, there is nothing we can do but hope that she is o.k. and be here when/if she returns.

I have wondered about her, too.

Appeared like she was getting worse not better, and with her serious health issues, it is scary. I hope she didn't have a very serious episode of something related to her dialysis. Guess we will not know.

I'm concerned too. She was stuck in a rut of complaining about things, not changing her behaviour (like eating things that were not good for her), and getting criticized by a number of us her.

We wanted to help, but I think in the long run she threw the towel in on us.

Thank you for the update, Arch. I, too, am concerned about her. I sent her a Sparkmail hoping she was still active behind the scenes and I haven't heard back. She definitely has her struggles; I truly hope she's ok.

I've IMd Elaine a few times since she shutdown her spark page. But, I haven't had a reply and she was always good about replying to me.

She definitely had her struggles, but not hearing from her for so long is concerning to me.

I haven't noticed a post from her lately. I know she struggled so. Wondering if she's okay.. Maybe she changed her username?
