i am doing well, but i have been very worried about my daughters health..so worried that i shared my worries with a special friend and she in a nice way told her that i   i was very worried to the point that i can't sleep at night... all of this is true, but she told her tonight and so my girl called and we talked, and cried. the good thing about this is that my daughter as much as he hates doing all this work is going to try and make changes... i told her just baby steps... changing her eating habit will be hard, it's the only thing that gave her happiness... i'm sure a lot can understand that.  my family has a history of high cholesterol, we all do, and since my daughter has no medical insurance she does not see a dr so we have no idea what her numbers are.  myself i had almost 400 and i changed my eating habit cause i could not take the meds.. i only needed to lose 18 or 20 pounds.. my girl is a single mom, her son with be devistated without his mom, and so would i..besides the eating she also is a smoker.. but i think we need to deal with the eating..every time i saw her she had gain more weight... i kept having so much fear that i was going to burry my only child, and that should'nt happen... i am hoping all of this will turn out good in the long run, i am some what happy my friend spoke to her of my fears. time will tell..... thanks for reading

I totally understand how you feel. I have 4 adult children and I worry about them more now than I ever did. Because I can't control a single think in their lives and make everything safe like I used to be able to I panic over every thing that happens.

I think it's pretty normal to worry like this. Try to remember she is an adult and she will be okay. :-)

thanks brenda u r right... i am happy to say that my girl is making changes in her eating and thats a good start... i just bought her a package of those e-cigs hoping that can help her slowly quit and when i told her about it she was very open to trying.... i'm her only parent and support...

I agree with Brenda...

My dd just turned twenty-seven and my ds twenty=four.

I worry about both of them...

That's just what Moms do...;)...lol...
