Hello beautiful people,
My name is Adriana I'm 27 years old and I'm new to this website, last year I was supposed to get Gastric Bypass surgery but due to insurance issues I couldn't get it so now it's a new year and I'm trying again only this time I will hopefully be getting the Gastric Sleeve.
I have PCOS, ANXIETY, BIPOLAR DEPRESSION, TRICHOTILLOMANIA, PTSD, AND ACANTHOSIS NIGRICANS I grew up and am still struggling with my weight, I was bullied for my looks especially my weight and acanthosis nigricans and trichotillomania I was abused when I was a kid and I dropped in the 9th grade I was still angry with my upbringing and, for the few years I tackled my past head-on and now I realized I'm not a victim I'm a survivor and what happened to me wasn't my fault and I made a lot of mistakes blaming others for my issues and last year I had something traumatic happen to me and I got out of it alive and I made a promise to myself to do better and put in the effort.
As of December 2021, I'm in my 2nd month of weight management and I have one more month to go then hopefully I can get my surgery, I've been adjusting my eating habits as required by my nutritionist it's been a roller-coaster but I know it'll be worth it, I have an amazing support system that will help me if I get approved for my surgery and I'm so blessed I've been given a 2nd opportunity and a healthier life.
I'm nervous about the after-care of my surgery like stalls and dumping syndrome I definitely DO NOT want those issues I'm here for support and questions and answers I went on this site and I see nothing but helpfulness and I'm really excited to start my hopeful journey :).
