I\"ve struggled with weight all my life-over the past several years I lost and kept off 60 pounds-I needed to lose 30 more to be at a healthy weight and I was doing okay-but on 9-29-06 my only child, my son Chris was killed in a car accident. Everthing changed-and I haven\'t even felt like taking care of myself. I\'ve gained 12 pounds, but more importantly I didn\'t care. Now with the stress of my loss, my blood pressure has skyrocketed and I know I have to care and take care of myself, but it\'s hard. I know I\'m using food as a comfort and I have to stop. My son would not want me to get sick or have a stroke due to high blood pressure because my \"dinner\" consists of a bag of trail mix and kettle fried chips! I know better but I just need the encouragement and support to help get me back on track and keep remembering that Chris would want me to be as strong and healthy as he was. I also hope I can reach out to others as I heal. We\'re all in this together and no one understands like someone who lives with a weight problem every day. Thank you.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
