I feel numb


Eat to live don't live to eat!

Had a phone call from my Mum this morning to say my grandma has died, :(:(:( it was just so sudden, she wasn't ill or anything, she was 81 but fit and well as far as we knew, apparently she got up to go to the loo and collapsed.

I just feel numb, I don't know what to do, they live 300 miles away, all my family do so I am unable to do anything, I just want to give my grandad a hug.

I tried to carry on as normal this morning, I took the kids to school then went to see my cdc, she's really happy that I'm doing so well, and happy for me to do the 1000 plan now till goal but unfortunately the new literature hasn't come yet so I have to wait till next week to get my new booklet, so just gonna muddle on with the old book and try and do it that way.

Trouble is, today I haven't managed to eat much yet, I have just forced a leek & potato soup down my throat, it seemed the easiest option, I don't have any fruit in the house so need to go to the shop and get some but I cant face it yet. Food just doesn't seem important at the moment.

Because it was a sudden death they have to do a postmortem, and if there is no problems the funeral will be next Wednesday so I have to try and get things sorted so I can go, I don't want to take the kids out of school but its looking as if I don't have a choice.

Anyway, my head is all over the place now, I'm going to find something to do so I don't think about it anymore.

Hello Stacey

My thoughts go out to you, what a shock and how sad you must be feeling, numbness is the least of it I expect. All I can say is that you have to take each hour as it comes and do what you feel you need to to move on the next hour and day etc.. be cuddly with the kids and you'll get that back from them too. Do you have an OH? With your family quite a way from you, try and keep close cummunication with them too. Lots of hugs xxx
