Asking for Prayers

No time to fill in details right now. My brother is very, very ill. I am in NYC, where he is located. Right now I am asking for anyone with a connection to a power greater than themselves to ask that Stanley be given health to heal.

I must not compulsively overeat today - no matter what. For those who do not understand this addiction let me quickly explain: once I start there is no guarantee I could ever successfully stop again. I cannot start. I can only be helpful to my brother and family if I am present in mind and spirit. If I abuse food I will be medicating myself into a useless stupor.

I will not compulsively overeat today - no matter what.

I will try and post tomorrow.

Thank you - everyone!

Jane~

my prayers are with him, my thoughts are with your family, it is so tough when these things happen, be thankful you were well enough to travel to him, and be there for him.

Sending prayers your way for your brother and you and your family. Hope you can find comfort in your family and not food. I do know how hard it is. Hang in there and big big hug to you.

Sending prayers and good wishes! I am in NYC, too, so they should get there extra fast ;)

Do take care of yourself -- you'll be best able to give the most to others when you have a sound body, mind, and spirit.

Visiting today after a good while away, and it is an honor to add my voice in prayer.

So sorry your family is going through this difficult time. My prayers are with your brother and your family. I completely understand what you mean about not eating compulsively. We can never be sure we will stop once we start. I will pray for your abstinence, as well, during this time. Take care...
