OMG, cheesecake, yummy, I will bring the Driscol strawberries that are one of my forbidden fruits and I will throw caution to the wind,lol. I do allow myself some strawberries, although I will pay for it. Some things I cannot give up totally, Red understands this, I am sure.
Scared, you sound like you are really in the grieving process right now and thats normal. I grieved for my old life and the old me. I went thru anger, I am sure I did the poor me too and probably a whole boat load of other stuff. According to my physchologist all of the feelings are very normal. A very high percentage of us woke up one day only to feel like our lives had been snatched from us overnight. I think at times, I still grieve for my old life, what I would give to have it back.
It has taken alot of counseling and medication to help me get past alot of the feelings I had. I even felt guilty, but I didn't know why I felt guilty.
One of my hardest lessons to learn was to pace myself. Also, I had to learn not to make these big lists of things to do. It boils down to limiting your daily ativities. Even if I wash 1-2 loads of clothes, I put that limit on it. I do most of my work in the house the very same way.
Hgs to all today and don't forget I am bringing the strawberries. Susie
