I was forced to move back home due to failing health at the beginning of August of 04 and have been living there since. Both of my parents eat unhealthy, processed, fatty, starchy foods probably every 45min-2 hours and don't exercise. Both have gained a great deal of weight throughout the years and their health is declining as a result of un healthy Diet and no exercise. My mother knows what I am doing, a 10 day water fast, and follows me around the house, accusing me of "starving myself" and "harming myself". I have attempted to explain what I am trying to accomplish to her, but she won't listen, and literaly, follows me around trying to get me to eat. I am reading books about regaining your health through diet and exercise and trying to bounce back from pleurisy, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, PCOS, insomnia, depression, herniated discs, etc. I have been feeling better while detoxifying, but my mother keeps insisting that I eat. I don't really have anywhere to stay where I could be away from her and I'm just wondering if any of you have advice who have been through a similar situation. I am at a loss of what I can do, am only half way through my fast, and don't want to be harassed anymore. Does anyone have advice please?! I would sincerely appreciate it!
