To my diet friends - sad news

mcpegJune 8, 2008

Some of you may know I suffer from depression. A lot of person issues have been coming to a head for me - emotionally. My mother passed away yesterday while I was in emergency - which is another story for another day.

Do you ever sense that things are off?

I need to take care of myself and family for awhile but I will be back.

Please keep me in your prayers while I try to find new footing in life.

[[[[McPeg]]]], I was shocked and dismayed to read of your mom's passing. You were a devoted daughter who showed your love in so many ways.

Please take good care of yourself. We all look forward to your return. Share all your concerns if you wish.

Best,
Dee

Peg, I am sorry for your loss. You know we will be here waiting for you but please don't stay gone too long. The longer you are away from your friends the harder it is to get back here......as ironic as that sounds.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

McPeg, How sad. Life pours rain on us sometimes. It just happens so suddenly and it's so shocking. A soul is here, then gone.

(((((((((((((HUGGLES)))))))))))))))))

Please take care of yourself and be careful. Let your family take care of YOU for a while. Rest and cry. Don't let doubt creep in. Go through the stages of loss at your own pace. There are no rules of "how to act" when you lose someone you love.

We'll always be here. Some of us have been here for YEARS. NHSuzanne is right, though, the longer you stay away, the harder it is to return.

But please check in when you feel you are able. We enjoy reading your posts and you have lifted our spirits with your attitude.

Love, BJ

Peg,

I posted at the tail end of last week's post last night so I don't know if you saw it. Many, many ((hugs)) to you. I am so very sorry for your loss.

You are in my thoughts and prayers....we are here for you whenever you need us.

Take care of yourself.

I am doing okay today. Making progress in many paths. I have asked for God to help me for the first time in years and have many friends who are helping me as well as continuing to feel your support. I know my Mom is in a good place and that my sedative medication is history. It was not agreeing with me at all. Like a light switch I am trying hard to take the bull by the horns to take care of myself at this time. Tomorrow is a day to order flowers, clean ourselves up - I will be seeing my family doctor and will start taking responsibility for myself so I can be there in life with my family.
Like all things in life, health - one step forward, one day. My problem with food now is reversed - it's hard to eat but I keep trying and drinking lots of water with our sudden heat wave.
There is strength here and I feel from each of my dear friends. I will be back hopefully next week, but focusing on my health style and choices in life which I hope to learn from. I accept a higher power to guide me through this difficult time and I accept that I believe I have a substance abuse problem which I am determined to address.
Let's make today count - it's precious.
Lots of love to each and everyone of you.
Peggy
