MightyFull's Journal, 23 January 2013

Why does the loss of a loved one make life so challenging???? I battle daily on whether to care and exercise/eat right or not to care and sit on sofa, stuff my face and watch tv.

It takes time to heal. I won't lie, I won't say you will ever fully recover, I suppose, but getting up and fighting anyway takes great strength. I hope you find yours. The thing that helped me the most (I hope that this is not offensive) -was when I realized they didn't ask me to go with them and I had to keep going. Hang in there, roll with the punches, and do the best you can.

Thanks. I abhor not being able to bounce back to my good routine. It's out of character. Normally (before all this) I had my moments but could easily manage my emotional eating with working out. Now I find I'm close to being a tv addict. I come home, (workout if I can make myself) eat supper on the sofa watching "I Almost Got Away With It" and "Monk" on Netflix.

I watched "Monk" episodes while Daddy was in the hospital....sometimes it feels like I'm hanging by a string. Other moments I'm good. Just trying to work out and figure out this new normal....it's tougher than I ever imagined it to be.

That's tough. My husband's mom was sick a few years ago and ended up passing away. She stayed with us her last few months, so we saw the decline full force. After she was gone, it was hard on all of us and we had a lot of fast food nights because it was just easier not to think about food and sit around. You will get to a point that you will feel better and exercise again, but you have to work through some of these emotions first. Exercise can help you work through some of those emotions too, if you can get yourself up to do it. I hope things get better for you soon!

I'm going to wait just one more week before returning to kickbox class. Plus I'm just tired today and darn it, I'm getting Wendy's for supper tonight and I will have fries.

I did that for a long time over my mom. I still have some clothing and stuff that comforts me. I also catch myself picking up things in stores that she would have loved to have and thinking about giving them to her. Same with the movies and TV. I watch and think, 'wow mom would've loved this'... I think some small part of me hopes that it brings her closer to me. I don't have answers, but you're not alone. I do know that it'll gradually get easier to push past and deal with, though. Hugs and luck.
