Upsetting news

Last night I was knocked off my socks by some very upsetting and disturbing personal news. Today I couldn't do anything but lay in bed with the covers on and cry. I couldn't eat, or function. Then I started getting light headed so I grabbed the first thing I could find which was my son't pasta salad that he brought home from a cook out. I started to eat it and then stopped. I ate the cucumbers, tomatoes and onions out of it (he doesn't like that part) and left the actual pasta and dressing for him. I am not going to let this horrible speed bump derail me. I am sad. Actually my heart is shattered but I am stronger than I used to be. I will move forward in a positive manner. I will forgive freely. I will stay strong and healthy.

And every day that goes by you will get stronger. I"ll say a prayer for you. I look at the photo to the left and that gives me all the reason to keep trying.

It can be terribly difficult to get back on track but be proud of yourself for not falling off so that you got yourself into trouble. We are all hear to support you no matter what the problems, and to celebrate th good times.

Jeanae, I am sorry to hear about your bad news! You must be a strong person, cuz give me a bowl of pasta along with disturbing emotions, and I may have only eaten the pasta and ignored the veggies! So see you were conscious and alert enough to be strong and take care of yourself, way to go girl! Louise

Bad news can be devastating but you have to get back in control. You can't change what happened but you can take care of yourself. I am not one to fall to pieces when something bad happens. Actually, I have not fell apart since my mom passed and I have lost an aunt and several cousins since then.

I know that hiding from something isn't going to make it better so I pull myself up by my bootstraps and keep going. Please get out of bed and keep going and more importantly please take care of yourself.

Like everyone else here, I'm thinking of you and hoping you know we're on your side. I'm glad you made good choices; keep that up! Take things a day at a time, and know you've got support only a post or an e-mail away.

You certainly have the right attitude. That is so important. It is also important to have support during any crisis. Thank you for sharing this. I'm sorry that you have to go through so much pain.

I pray you heal from the pain and you forgive but walk in wisdom

May God reveal his will for you and the ability to make choices in light of his will
even if its not what we hope for …He wants our best and knows whats best always even when emotions cloud our vision
Lots of love

Good for you for catching yourself. I'm sorry to hear you're dealing with a difficulty right now but I am proud of you for keeping you control of your eating and your emotions separate. It's far too easy to let something that is really upsetting to us be comforted by binge eating. I'm glad to hear that you're going to continue on the right path with a positive attitude. Stay strong. We're all here for you.
