  1. Today my endocrinologist who I just met and has no idea who I really am, refused to refer me to my surgeon so my insurance can cover my gastric sleeve. I'm devastated. I've been trying all day to stay calmed. I don't know what to do. The worst part is being told by my family and friends "maybe is for the best".

      He gave me the impression he doesn't support WLS. I have a BMI of 38 and he says that even if I was 40 he thinks I should loose way the "old way". The problem with finding a new one is that in Spain you have an assigned doctor depending where you live through "social security". I won't give up, today I will talk to my nutritionist to find a solution.
