Coping mechanisms!

Some people upon hearing that their mother had cancer would go on a bender. Others would start a fist fight with the next stranger they saw. Some might combine the two and go to a bar, get plastered. Still more might walk around numb.

Me I went to a 24 hour diner and had dinner: Ice cream float (chocolate icream and Coke Cola), Tuna Nicoise, and cheese cake.

Oh well at least I'm not going to critique the food, today ;-)

You can always call us, too.

heh....sounds like something I would do, except replace the tuna nicoise with pancakes and bacon :)

I went through it with my dad, years ago.

Call me if you need to talk.

This post grabbed my attention because I really identified with it. When my mom actually died, certain people were highly judgmental of my coping mechanism; Tasteless humor.

Fine, I mean the things I said might not be suitable after YOUR mother died, but it was my own mother and it worked for me. You have to understand that my mom's death wasn't sudden or even quick. After several increasingly stressful years with my mother's increasing senile dementia, everyone in our family was pretty tense.

I'm sure some shallow person would criticize you for eating. Though I've never actually met your mom, I strongly suspect your mother wouldn't want you to go on living and would applaud your coping mechanism.

As for mine, yeah well she probably would have thought the belly dancers were in poor taste too. ;-)
