Hi Patricia. My name is Kathy. I too lost a child. My daughter, Elise, died of lung disease. I'm so sorry for your loss and the pain you must feel. I have felt that pain, and I continue to feel it. I'm sure you'll agree that there are moments out of the blue where you just get overwhelmed. My husband and I call them "Elise moments."

You're on the right track. Your child would want the best for you and the family left behind. You're in the right place. If ever you want to 'talk," I'd love to help you.

Allow yourself to grieve. You'll recover by baby steps for your sake and the sake of your family. My heart hurts with yours. Hugs my friend. Kathy

Good morning and welcome to Spark. I am so sorry to hear about your son. I have a good friend who has walked that horrible journey and I know the pain never disappears. That said, I’m guessing your son would want you to be healthy and happy so you are doing the very best thing to get going on a healthy life style.

Take care.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Food can be like a security blanket of sorts for me. I wish you peace and love for yourself during this transition.

Hello, my name is Patricia. I have been married for 33 years. I have 2 children.....Elizabeth who is 16 and Derek who is forever 26. He was killed by an under aged drunk driver February 16, 2014. I have gained more than 100 lbs in the 5 years since he died. My health is now being affected and so is my leisure time I spend with my family. I would appreciate any friends to help encourage me.
