so I have not written in a long time, I was sleeved on june 9th and almost on seven days after surgery. it has been so up and down. my mood swings for one have been awful it seemed like everything that i have been unhappy about for the last few years of my life exploded out of me. its like i change the size of my stomach so now i change everything about me?? even my life's path??? I have been having marital problems for years and now right at this time in my llife right after surgery things have to be stirred up..I just dont get it..but atleast I am now really seeing everyones true colors, who wants to support me and who just wants to talk crap to me and be down right rude...so I am still very very happy about this decision to have surgery I am at the lowest weight in about four years, thats a long time....I went from 223 before surgery and now down to 203...wow its just so amazing to know that...I am still having pains gas and back pains and the med is helping but food is so hard to even get down I am trying to be on fulls but clears is where I will be at for a while everything hurts going down and I feel sick....my poor little boy who is 2 is also home sick with a horrible viral infection with fevers above 103 so I have been trying to get him to feel better along with myself but Ihave my mother in law who has been helping me since my husband still cant do nothing but sit on the computer all day and watch t.v. oh and to mention he has had no job for three years...thats just a little history to why I was having a meltdown when I came home from the hospital..he has never been supportive always calling me fat and just recently saying he hates me..it has been awful, but I know this is a happy time for me no matter what..okay enough venting for one day...time for my mind to rest and watch shrek with my little one

wow.. I feel you.. just hang in there girl i am sure everything will be for the better your story kind of made me think of my situation at home. I am currently in the process of getting the sleeve done as well i will finish with my classes by the end of june so i am looking at 3 months after that to get something scheduled. and my husband is the same way he calls me fat-pig ugly and other things but yet i still stay with him he works he is a good dad he is very active with the girls in there sports but its the name calling that bothers me.. and it has affected my self esteem I just decided that I was going to just go on with the surgery and see where that takes me. I am not doing it for him i am just doing it for myself to build my confidence wether its to move on with my life without him or to look for another job and to love myself and live a longer life with my girls.

I am so sorry you are going through it too...it is not right for the name calling and Iknow we are strong and want to keep our family together so we put up with things we shouldnt have to...It seems like you are deciding on the surgery for the right reasons..not to please your husband, so far just loosing the little that I have I am already getting some of my self confidence back and boy does it feel good...good luck with your choice of having this surgery and I know good things will come to you.

Dear New Me,

I am so sorry that you are having all these problems at home. Hopefully you can hang on to the fact that you are a unique person of value, no matter how you husband talks to you! My husband was not excited about me getting the surgery (I am five days post op gastric sleeve), but he did go with me to the hospital (I had my surgery in Mexico) and was very helpful in the immediate post op period and coming home. I think he has his own issues with weight (he has always been overweight also) and my doing something about my weight causes him to feel guilty that he isn't doing anything about his problem. I am tryibg to be extra understanding and loving since he has been so good to me during this period.

I will remember you in my prayers tonight. Pray that you will start to feel better and remember that YOU ARE A PERSON OF WORTH! You deserve to be loved! If not by your husband, love yourself!
