… to Lisa and everyone else in the Thick Dumpling Skin community for the outpouring of support during this very difficult time.
There are so many things I want to say about family, friends, and food during this time, but that will have to wait. For now, I want to share this excerpt from a recent post I did over at The Actor’s Diet:
It is NEVER appropriate to casually comment on somebody’s weight (good or bad) or tell them what to be eating, especially when they’re highly emotional (a.k.a. grieving). I mentioned this the other day, but I feel the need to reiterate it again. I write this with the hopes that people who haven’t seen me in a while and don’t know that I’ve overcome a lifetime of binge eating will read this and take it to heart, but I know not everyone will. So for now, I just hope that those of you who have made it this far will absorb that advice for the future, if you ever find yourself (or someone you care about) in a similar situation.
My sincere gratitude for everyone’s compassion, and my deepest sympathies to everyone else who has lost a loved one. You can read more about my father in his obituary today.
Love and be kind to one another.
