    Looking for May 12th band buddy

    Good Morning Angie, How did things go? I am finally back to the computer. It has been less than a month and I am down 30 lbs. I was in the hospital 3 days. Woke up with Vertigo so for a week and 1/2 I took meds that made me sleep A LOT. Slow and steady...been trying to overcome the blues. I have cried more in a month then I have in years. I am getting back to work bit by bit. Have made lots of changes but I still feel like I am doing this alone. I am hoping to find a lap band buddy I can walk and talk with. Someone who understands how hard and challanging this whole experience is. Underneath the blues....I am happy?? And excited to feel better each day. Hope you are well. ~Robin

    Type 1 Diabetes??

    Help! I have stopped my pills and cut my Lantus in half because I keep having low blood sugars on pre-op liquid fast. Last night I needed to take to gloucose tabs to bring me up to at least 100. Is this something you have experienced? :thumbup: I called my Dr's office and no one returned my call! Thanks! ~Robin

    Looking for May 12th band buddy

    Hello There. My name is Robin. I am having my lap band put in on Mon May 10th. I am on the liquid fast now. Really hard but I am doing ok. :thumbup: I am new to this whole chat stuff. So you are my first buddy! I really should have started this search ealier. But better late than never...right? lol So I guess I ask if you would like to be on my team? I would be happy to return the favor! I am scared, excited and HUNGRY all at once. :thumbup: Trying to sort out my feelings one minute at a time. I am past the point of changing my mind. Deep breath, my head up, eyes straight ahead. We can do this!! Making plans for when I return home and stuff. Let me know if you are interested! ~Robin

    New here and more....

    Hello I am Robin. I finally got my insurance approval last Friday. Found out today my surgery date is set for Mon April 12. I am excited and wasn't a bit nervous until I opened that letter :thumbup: Now I guess I need to find others out there who are "walking their talk" and doing it with grace. That is what we all need from each other right? So I am looking for some friendly words of advice, shake tips and overall strength and survival techniques! Yes, I am feeling a bit of a lump in my throat. But I am so ready to begin the journey of finding ME again....
