As the weather starts to get colder, and cold and flu season is right around the corner, it might be a good time to start thinking about your health. Luckily, the Eugene Health & Wellness Expo has got you covered. The weekend-long Expo includes educational seminars led by health professionals and educators in the community. Seminars range from topics like “Total Wellness: Mind and Body/Advanced Cell Renewal” to “Optimal Nutrition For Our Companion Animals.” Local vendors will offer natural food and products to sample as well as free health and wellness screenings.
My MIL, whom I love very much, is 75 now but is pretty open about her anorexia as a young woman. She still struggles with food and weight issues, I can see her conflicted at times, it’s very sad.
Her children all have what I would call “food issues” but not as serious as say anorexia or bulimia.
Also, food is ALWAYS a topic! They are a very close family but I still think it’s odd to make comments about what people are eating, what’s on someone else’s plate, hiding food, etc. But what I’m reading here is that there are many families who have these food/boundary issues and that they manifest in lots of different ways.
