Everybody break out the paper streamers, the confetti, the toy plastic horns. Frust8 passed her psych reevaluation, going for the gold metal and the 5 little tummy slits and to become,a kangaroo+(cause kangaroos have pouches) maybe-ish June? 😝👍😝
Why am I just seeing this? Anyway! Congrats Frust8! One step closer! 🎉🎉🎉

Hi guys and gals, it's me the Frust8 kid. Along with the" Do they want me or Not?" "Will they perform my surgery or not?"trains of thought , I now have a new one, my landlord Algeron the Absent, the one who lives 10-15 from the next states border, and would like to unload this house, not in the best condition, on me or someone else, his wife wants(and I sorta understand) any income coming in spent on their own mini-place and not repairs to my house. Have had a couple months I haven't been able to pay full amount and save any money for transport for when my surgery comes. So yes I'm a little behind, now I'dsinging an eviction song. I should start another heading on BP, "And the Next Shoe to Drop will be..." so I've got relocation as a worry too. To pay myself up to date would take what I have saved plus going to one of those "Check into Cash" places, once you get involved with them it takes a lot to get them paid back and free yourself. In the old days, there were older relatives who would lend you money, now I am the older generation and basically poor as a church mouse! What to do? I'm not in the dark yet but my last poor lightbulb is flickering today. Nothing that nobody else hasn't
faced and I may still come up with a way out, but Geesh What Next?

I was trying to catch up but there are SO many scheduled surgery dates I lost count. But it's awesome so congrats to all!

Anyone opposed to me creating a list of all the surgery dates so we can match people up in the same time period??

I'm thinking I could post it on the very first post of the thread so it's easily found and wouldn't get lost in all the posts.

I am approved by my insurance. I was just there Friday for my 3 hour appt with the nutritionist and a bunch of doctors. My psych evaluation is June 4th. I’m in my 5th month so it’s a little a frustrating that it takes so long. I’m approved. Then a month between psych eval. Then another month til meeting the surgeon to give me a date a month later. I’m like ugh. It’s so much waiting it’s also a little annoying when someone says “your not fat enough” i weight 215. But i am only 5 feet tall. So I’m 100 pounds over weight. I know I’m over weight when i debate leaving my house because i don’t want to see anyone i know. I know my body best and i know I’m so unhappy.

I was recently in one of my nutrition classes and there were two ladies behind me that struck up a conversation. One said to the other, "You don't even look like you belong here." I think she meant it as a compliment but I thought it was incredibly rude. Everyone carries their weight differently, everyone is here for a different/personal reason, and I would never presume to know what personal decision led them to the decision to have WLS.

Hi-

I am hoping for a late summer surgery but I did not pass my psych eval :( mostly because I was too honest.

Much better to be honest now to get the help you need instead of having to do that after the surgery when you're trying to make a drastic lifestyle change. I know how frustrating it can be to have a bump in the road but I think you'll be happier in the long run!

And I have been pretty upfront about my seeking WKS at such a traditional age. Recently for not the first time I was told I am old and foolish for doing this at my age, another who I thought was close to me drew,back, and let fly with. "By this time in life you should have come to terms with the way you are and should not be rocking the boat", am I understanding this correctly, did she just say Shut up, Sit Down and Die? Funny up until this point I had counted her as friend? Anybody want to give me any feedback?😙

        Have a great Wednesday too! Sorry you're hungry all the time, I'm pretty much the same..and I'm sick of eating the same food all the time.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
