Yes, the queers are here.

I was sleeved in late June and I now have a BMI of 26.something. It's awesome.

My gay friends have responded much like my straight friends: afraid at first but now supportive. My best gal pal (but not girlfriend) has been consistently telling me how hot I look. It rocks!

Welcome.

I guess this is a P.S.

I was hesitant to come out on this board too. Finally I came out on this sub-forum and it turned out that I was coming out to nearly everyone on the board. Lots of non-GBLT folks read this forum. Everyone has been very supportive. If someone has a problem with my sexuality, they've stayed in their homophobe closet. Now that's a happy turnaround.

I had to laugh because I read the thread topic as are there REALLLY GAY people here...as in not a little gay but a lot gay. Then I reread it and figured out where the emphasis was in the sentence...im slow. Either way im a tard but welcome to the forum.

*raises hand* Me!

Welcome. :) Glad you have a date. Best of luck! Yes, it can happen so soon. My initial consult was May 12, and I had insurance approval done and surgery completed on July 21. Granted, I had a short window, because I needed to have the surgery done and recovery well under way by the time I went back to school in late August.

hey Ann good to meet you and yes gay peeps are everywhere! congrats on the 30 years together ! I have been with my partner 17 years and we have 2 girls through artificial insemination but that is a whole different story with its own websight! be patient with the whole insurance process mine took 3 months and lots of appointments and tests just be your own advocate and don't give up....as far as having reactions on the forum i haven't outed myself either but my guess its like coming out anywhere...some people are ok, others are not and we gravitate to the ones who do not have an issue with it.....good luck i added u as my friend so keep in touch! amy

I'm not REALLY gay, I'm only sort of moderately gay.

Which means I am ***** and have had loads of ***** relationships- but I fell in love with and married a man... Which to most of my ***** friends means that I lost my LGBTQ card:(

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
