GRIEF BACON

bacon-1341868__340Fun fact: I recently read that the German word kummerspeck means excess weight gained from emotional overeating. Literally translated, it means “grief bacon.” I’m pleased that something bad for me has a funny, colorful name. When I can laugh at my worst habits, it helps me gain perspective and move through my malaise. This is one of the many tools I use to live well with chronic illness.
