Hi all, My aunt passed away this pass Saturday. We was very closed and often talk on the phones hour on end. Every since she died I have not been eating right. I have this pain that is in the pit of my stomach and when I tried to eat I cant. Today was her funeral and I feel so sad. I know that this is not good for me because I take insulin five times a day and I need to eat. I know that everyone has different ways of grieving and being a diabetic I need to let go and eat. All I wanted to do is vent. Thanks for letting me do so.
Lots of internet hugs and love.

My very special friend bro Marlin died January 24, 2012 and it was physically painful to me and yet the Lord used this pain to help me to be like my friend, so I was able to encourage others like he did for me. Your NOT alone for Death to hurt you so very much, bro was a beloved friend of mine.

My mom has breathing problems and I pray for her as I am able to.
Lots of Stuffie Hugs for you.

Hugs to you. I am also saddened by the loss of my uncle last Thursday morning, so I can related to how you're feeling. we weren't close, yet it still leaves a pit in the middle of my stomach to lose another family member. I am sure your aunt would want you to take care of yourself, so keep trying…my thoughts and prayers are with you…Elaine

So very sorry for your lose, Rhonda.
It is hard dealing with this. But it only makes it harded on us physically when we don't eat. I can't think of a better response than Cheryl posted.
Remember the love your Aunt had for you and hold all her love close to you.

Incredibly sorry for your loss Rhonda. Losing someone close is never easy, heck losing anyone isnt easy but it particularly harder when they are so dear to our hearts. Ive been where you are right now, I could totally feel your pain as you typed each word out. What I had to try to remember while I was grieving is this … would she want you to take care of yourself? would she want to see that you are physically struggling? The answer is no, but you knew that already. Please, for the sake of your health and in honor of your Aunt, find a way to eat a little, just a little and allow yourself to get better.

When we are healthy, stress is easier to deal with, life in general is easier to deal with. Know that whenever you need to "vent" we are right here listening and lending you our hugs and prayers.

Stay strong. Hugs ~ Cheryl
