Support each other



Recommended Posts

Im still single and i think I should date someone who is going in the same path so we can easly get along and support each other, [emoji4]my family loves me so much and I do love them back and they are my priority but I feel like they are having difficulty in understanding what kind of support I need pre and post op. Specifically dite and food control wise. Ive struggled long enough with overweight but am now more scared to be alone in this journey. I wish I can find my other me somewhere nearby [emoji56]

I agree, try and find a local support group. While being single is one thing, friends can support too. I am also single, but right now my main focus is on myself and sticking to the plan so I can get through it without having to worry about what somebody else might think

Sarah you can do this and you will be able to do this and do it successfully. This site has been so informational and inspiring to me. You are not alone period. My family loves me but did not understand why I had the surgery and after 5 weeks, they still don't. During your good days and bad days there are so many folks on this forum who can relate to what you are going through and will be able to provide you with some great suggestions and nuggets to help you to focus on your journey. I also understand you wanting to have someone nearby, but folks here are just a quick text/conversation away too! Again, you are not alone!

If I only knew where I wouldn't be posting online searching for it.

Just call any of the local hospitals. They will tell you if they host support meetings. In my area, all the meetings are open; it doesn't matter where you had surgery. Good luck!

And Mr "Just waiting and oraying" could be at that meeting, maybe if not him, his mama, his Aunt. There is somebody for you, don't fish in the polluted waters of townhouses and bars, you don't want a " bottom feeder" when you deserve a smooth sleek Rainbow Trout in your life! Go for it, You Do Deserve The Best!😝🍀😝

Hmmmm does Alex Need her know if there is a website for us recovering food addicts? Maybe someone should start one. Something like" On Journey Together" sounds better than Stretched Skin Society? L.O.L🎁😝📦

      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
