maybe do some writing? I don't think anything makes it go away but you can start getting excited and writing out how you are going to Celebrate milestones.

I’m getting the sleeve done tomorrow how do I overcome my anxiousness 🥺

It's common to feel nervous excitement or anxiety leading into something that is important to you. Everytime something big I happenings to/for me I can't sleep the night before (so I longer try) and I stay up as have a mini party/music/movie marathon. I indulge in the things I love and it takes some of the stress away. Perhaps try to do things that make you happy and calm.

Congratulations in advance, have a safe and happy surgery 💓

Thank you ladies. Not sure if I’m replying in the right place. Still trying to figure this thing out. I appreciate your words. I’m excited but I guess my anxiousness gets the best of me. But my son and hubby keep me busy and make me feel happy and are 100% supportive. But it’s late right now and I’m wide awake.

Thank you 😊 I will do that because I am excited but sometimes my anxiety gets the best of me.

Welcome to the forums.

Anxiety & excitement are effectively different names for a similar set of feelings. Or so I tell myself ;)

Anxiety & excitement are rational emotions when facing a surgery, any surgery. Even more so when the surgery is possibly life changing, as this surgery is.

Nothing you do, aside from backing out, will change the fact that you are having surgery. You've already thought it through, so trust yourself. Look beyond the surgery to where your emotional energy may have a positive effect.

Good luck,

Tek

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
