Well, this week has been full of some issues and eye openers for me. There was an issue this week and I reacted....yes, with food. Without even realizing it, I had pulled the leftovers out of the fridge and began to eat them (it would be REALLY nice to have some restriction in this band). The next day I was like, what the heck!!! It is definitly time to make my 3 month post op appt with the counselor. ugh
Then the ghost of ex-husband 2 showed up. No, not really him, but someone that sounded so much like him that I had an instant reaction. You may recall from my first blog about my second husband. You can read it here . Anyhow, it has been 6 years since we split and I didn't realize it still affected me.
Here is how I made this revelation. My son was in a fender bender. He came home last night and of course, he was like, "first, it wasn't my fault". lol, I love when they start off with that. Anyhow, he said, "mom, this guy reminded me so much of him (my second ex husband)". So I made some calls today to figure out what to do and this man (that my son was in the fender bender with) calls and leaves a message on my cell. When I was listening to it, first, I almost threw up, then I almost cried. My son was right, he sounded so much like him.....just the way he worded things and all. I was surprised by my physical reaction and I realized just how much my ex affected my life.
So I called the counselor....dang, they leave early on Fridays.
