    Mixed feelings

    I would send him a copy of what you wrote above... let him know how you feel and then it's in his hands to get in touch, if he does you can work on your friendship, if not you need to move on! good luck!

    My younger son was 18 months when I had mine, and a BIG bpy. hubby did almost everything for the 1st wk (he stayed home from work), but after that I was on my own and just had to be carefull!

    Migraines amd RNY

    maybe your not absorbing the Rx....check with your Dr, you might need stronger/diff meds

    Should I bring my son?

    I wouldn't. there is nothing for him to do and you will be all loopy and poo in pain, he doesn't need to see that. plus if he wants to cuddle, you shouoldn't let him for a day or two, just in case...it would be really hard!

    My surgeon won't operate because I complained

    I would call and speak to the practice manager or the Dr himself.....might not do any good, but you have to try everything! and it's January, how are they full for the yr?
  10. sounds like the meat is to dry. meat thats is cooked in sauce (chilli, soup) is easier for me to eat

    I would guess it's all the stored estrogen/hormones being released from your fat cells shrinking! should level off in a couple months....

    food and celebrations

    Be the change you want to see!!! Come up with your own traditions that don't center around food. Spend some time volentering or something! before long that will become your "normal" and food is not at the center of it! good luck! shannon

    Rehab for fitness

    nope, but I just joined the Y. sliding scale I pay 35 a monrth for a family, I know you can find cheaper, but they have a pool, classes, machines , and (most imp) childcare! I have been x2 and I love it and so does the baby! Hubby and I share a car so I can only go doys his carpool buddy drives but that is every other day so I should be able to wk out 2-3 days a week, plus I do Roller Derby 2-3 times a week... I may just get healthy...LOL
