I do not think I am alone in this discussion. I have been reading other people's journals and from the discussion. Most of us started our love affair with food when we were kids. I am just wondering...how many of us had sucky parents? Did our need for food come from the fact that we did not get what we needed from our parents? I know everyone in America has issues with their parents, but I wonder. Am I the only one with a parent that made food our love? I had an alcoholic father and a distant mother. I am sure she did the best she could with her life but in my opinion she did the minimum amount you have to do for your kids. My mom recently died and I really struggled to think of happy memories I have of her and my childhood that would help me deal with her death. I couldn't find any. None. I just remembered hiding from my drunk father, wishing my mom would leave him. I would pray everynight that he would not come home because we never knew what he would be like when he got home. I guess I blame my mom for my dad's behavior. Now that he is all I have I am really struggling to forgive him and go on. Anyway. Am I the only one that went to food because my parents sucked?
