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

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!
