    Hang in there. Take care of you. And after the shock of it all wears away a bit, remember, a beautiful baby is coming into your lives. It may not have been the path you would have chosen for your son, but it doesn't mean it won't be a blessing. My mother had two such blessings in her life. This first one is now married with a child of her own. She is a beautiful person in and out. The second is in her last year at BU in Boston. Dean's list every time. She too is a truly wonderful person. Both have brought more joy than I can say to our families. So, take a deep breath, be the support your son and his girlfriend need, and watch it come around to being exactly what you need as well. I wish you the best and congratulations on the new blessing coming to your lives.

    That's a plateful. Not the food, but eating vegetables is good for you.

    We have had a new way of life to handle that was different for our parents. There's probably a lot of what if's in your mind. Watch your son and girlfriend's handling of this and it may set a path for you now. Take care of youself, that's foremost important emoticon PJ

    Hey, I'm an emotional eatter as well. I'm so horrible for having what I like to call "junk food picnics". I have them in bed..which is really bad.
    I've taken to walking when I'm feeling over-whelmed. I don't know if it will help. But I plug in my iPod and start out the door. All I have with me is a bottle of water and some fantastic tunes.
    I'm just new on the site, so I totally don't have any expert advice.
    I just about lost my mind last week when my laundry washer decided to go on the fritz. Stupid piece of junk.
    I had my first grand child last May. Unfortunately, my son-in-law is a jobless wonder. Sigh. I can't tell you how much chocolate that guys has lead me to consume. Ha..not that he shoves it down my throat or anything but when he ticks me off..I eat.
    I'm trying to learn how to say things rather than swallow my feelings (and pizza).
    Thanks for the post. It's nice to know that someone knows what it's like to sometimes NEED to eat.
