Welcome! Sorry for your loss and for what you still have to content with. This is the hardest part of life but remember, you are not alone. Have you thought about joining an online grief support group. Daily Strength has a Bereavement group:

You can just go there are read posts without signing up. If you find it helpful it's free and safe and non-judgemental. I've used them for a few things. Some of the groups are wonderful and some are not very active or helpful. You just have to lurk a while to see if it fits your needs. There are many other support sites online. Just be careful not to give out your personal info.

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates

I am not good at follow thru but a year ago in Jan. I gave up processed sugar. It was like I had been challenged. One of my clients who is a meth addict told me that I did not understand addiction. I thought how wrong he was as I have struggled with food addictions for most of my life. I used food to feel better, to get high, to calm and comfort myself. I would sneek food, hide with food, hide evidence of food I had eaten. I had an addiction and I knew it but was like everyone of many of my clients, I was in denial. I took 3 months to be able to stop thinking about cake icing, and cookies, but I over came it. But I in turn upped my carb intake to fill that need. I think this is my next step to control the carbs and take control of my addiction. I recently spent 31 days at the hosp as I watched my brother die from cancer. I gained 10 # on junk food but no sugar, I will not go back. My dad was diagnosed at the same time as my brother and he does not have long left. I am struggling to not let grief drive me to eat as I am one of those who eats thru pain , sickness or sorrow. I know I can not do this alone, just as I tell others with addictions, I need support.
