  • Get your relationships in order



    Guess what, being primal won't save you from heartache. (yeah, I know you know) Illness can beset even the healthiest of us. My father was strong and fit... then severe pancreatitis (caused as a rare side effect from an ERCP scoping procedure) killed him in three weeks.


    Things were strained a bit this past year, but I always figured we'd have a good talk... but we never did. I am devastated.


    So... do your sprints, move a lot, take your fish oil... or whatever... but put "mending/keeping/prioritizing relationships" at the top of your list.

    So sorry to hear of your loss, that is so sudden. It's always good to be reminded to keep your relationships healthy as well, thank you.

      Oh, I'm so sorry, Marie. And thanks for the reminder. No matter how much we all "know" this, we forget so easily.

        Positive thoughts sent your way, Marie! I am with my folks and brother's family this Tgiving and WILL NOT forget the impact of what you just shared. So sorry, but you did make me have a wake up. Thank you.

          So sorry, Marie.


          This is quite timely, as I'm going through some issues with a family member right now.

          Thank you for your reminder.

            So sorry for your loss, Marie. Both of my parents have passed, and there's so much I wish I'd shared with them...

              Oh, Marie. I'm so sorry for your loss. I know what you're going through; my father died of cancer in January of this year and he was only 63. I always thought we'd have more time too. I miss him dreadfully.


              I'm sorry to hear things were strained between the two of you when he passed. That has to hurt even worse. I can't imagine that.


              My best to you.

                Marie, you have my deepest sympathy. I will say a special prayer for you.


                I too had an experience this past summer that hit me so profoundly that I have been making those contacts with people from my past and letting them know I love them. I had a dear friend from 30 years ago whom I hadn't seen in 20 years, diagnosed with lung cancer in June. I made a long journey (over 1000 miles) on my mororcycle to attend a fund raiser for him and see him in August. It was a very short visit but straight to the point. A huge hug, a kiss and an I Love You, nothing else need to be said. We got home and 20 days after our visit he passed. How grateful I was to have had that hug & kiss! Now I tell my family and friends often how I feel.

                  Thank you all... and I am sorry for your losses as well.


                  My only consolation is that I was able to spend nearly every day with him in the hospital, and the last thing I did for him while he was conscious was rub his feet, and the last thing I said to him was "I love you." By the next morning when I came back, he was sedated and on a ventilator. He never regained consciousness.


                  I am in shock and my heart is broken. Who the heck dies from a scoping procedure???!!!

                      Very sorry for your loss, at-least know that with your experience in this situation you have helped anyone who reads this.


                      There are three things that have stressed man since the beginning of time, that is food, safety (use to be lions, now its money), and relationships. If any of these three are not stable or are out of order, it will stress your entire being. So take Marie's advice seriously, and get things in order.

                        I'm sorry for your loss Marie. I lost my dad (he was 81 but quite healthy) about 18 months ago to a bout with the flu. He had a flu shot, but died from the seasonal flu (you never hear much about that in the news, yet many more die from it than H1N1). One day he was fine and 2 days later he was gone. Both of my brothers were estranged from my dad and the rest of the family (their own doing, not his) and I know that they regret not making amends. Thank goodness you were able to be with your dad and say "I love you." How wonderful for him to have you there at the end. He knows you were there and I am sure that gave him much comfort. Good advice!
