    Donating Plasma Post Gastric Sleeve

    Where I live you can't "sell" bodily tissue and that includes blood components. Therefore we cannot get cash. Make sure you are selling and that its legal where you live. I was deferred for plasma, platelets, and double red units because of asthma but I was a prominent whole blood donor before! Make sure you stay on top of everything because it will wear you out!

    Increased Sex Drive, better orgasms?

    Oh my god yes! And it wasn't like this when I was the same weight years ago. I'd go twice a day if he was up for it. And Way better than when I was in my early 20s. Things have definitely gotten Wild in the bedroom SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Allergic to protein supplements

    What do you guys do for fun?

    I was reading one day about how people shouldn't feed them peanuts because they're high in calories and not particularly nutritious for them. Yet EVERYONE and their mom feeds them peanuts lol. I've given them goldfish but they basically give me the squirrel finger when I hand them grapes and stuff [emoji23] SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Why are my neighbor's kids not wearing helmets...

    When I was 8 or so I saw someone fall off their bike and they died! Right in front of me! So homeschool is hit or miss. I did an entire research study on it. One of the problems is the parents that are willing to participate in tests just so happen to be the parents that are educating beyond what is required. There are other HS kids that are extremely far behind as well. Like...illiterate at graduation. Most are completely oblivious about sexual health and sciences. I'd love to HS but most of the groups here are Christian. We're very atheist so that poses a problem [emoji17] SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Seasonale Birth Control

    My husband has been snipped but now my uterus is out of wack. I was looking at Seasonale/Seasonique just to avoid blood transfusions! But yeah that price sounds right if you're in the US and insurance won't cover. As others have said, planned parenthood or something similar. Also try GoodRX which gives coupons. Literally has been a life saver for my family SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Training with an injury

    I finally went to my doctor the other day after almost a year of elbow pain. She touched it and was like "yep you've got golfers elbow." Pretty funny because I HATE GOLF lol. Anyway I took a break from some exercise because the darn thing hurts like a mother (and is on my dominant hand...yaaay[emoji58]) Anyway my arms are starting to look like literal bat arms (all skinny and crap.) Anyone got any suggestions? I'm going to physical therapy for it soon but from my understanding, these things take a long time to heal [emoji53] SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Exercising with kids

    How old? I hike with my 3 year old. It's nice because she takes a lovely nap after lol. But we talk about all the things we see. Found some Turkey tracks yesterday SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Barefoot running shoes

    Hey everyone. Before I had my kiddo and gained a bunch, I started running barefoot (with Vibrams.) I have gotten back into running buuut can't afford new vibrams. When I typed barefoot into Amazon, they came back with water shoes. Has anyone run in these? Is it similar to a barefoot shoe? I know they won't last as long but I'm ok seeing as they're cheap.

  15. There aren't many places for people with wls to turn to. Even some people on here have been met with hostility. It seems to be a big issue. SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Weight Loss meds after surgery

    I was also told fenphen or anything like it taken presently or in the past was grounds for automatic denial. Interesting SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Can we get a mental health support forum?

    I suggested it because people have posted about medications. I'm switching from Zoloft to Effexor and feel pretty alone. Go to a depression forum and get crap for having surgery. Go to a lot of surgery forums and get crap for being on pills. I don't feel safe posting anywhere. Last post I saw on here (about lithium I believe) was met with hostility. It's not about sensitivity. It's about having a safe place to talk to others with a unique digestive tract and how it affects mental health treatment. SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    trouble with protein drinks

    I couldn't tolerate thin protein at all. I gave up and went to thicker ones like slim fast and special k. Slim fast has a lot of fat so be careful. SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Opinions please!

    The con of drinking water is that you can inhale it and die. With that said, if the pros outweigh the cons, go ahead. That's why people that don't need to lose a lot don't qualify. The cons would outweigh the pros. SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!

    Did you lose weight taking Lithium?

    It's nobody's business that we've had surgery too yet here we all are. Obviously those willing to share are ok with it. SW: 366 CW: 315 GW1: 200 RNY Dec 18, 2017!
