When our child dies, we don’t want to be here so we just don’t care what happens to us. Our health suffers dramatically because of that, plus our bodies are out of whack for a long time.
After child loss, many of us turn to comfort foods in a big way, and we don’t feel like being active, which causes our weight to become out of control. When we get a few years down the road, at some point we realize how badly our unhealthy habits have affected us, and we know we need to get it under control but it is so very difficult. We know what to do, we just don’t do it.
In this episode, Laura allows herself to become vulnerable as she shares her health journey, both where she has come from and where she is now, encouraging other pareavors to take care of themselves. Laura believes so much in how important our health is on our grief journey that she has decided to walk with pareavors who are ready to join her in getting healthy.
