Birthdays after Gastric Bypass Surgery

By |2012-09-13T10:31:25+00:00August 31st, 2012|My Story|0 Comments

Okay so let’s be honest, as a morbidly obese person, birthdays meant one thing to me; cake. Okay two things; cake & presents. Now growing up in a religious household where Birthdays and Holidays were not celebrated I can honestly tell you that I’ve never had a real birthday party, growing up I got sneaky birthday presents on the sly from my Grandmother until she passed away when I was eight, and later in High [...]

I think I have reached the end of my proverbial rope. Nobody seems to get it or understand it and for the first time in my life, ever, I am looking at the people around me that have been my support system all the way through this and I’m starting to ask myself if we’re just in totally different places in our lives right now or what happened, but my relationships, with everyone right now [...]

When you start a blog like this you have every intention on keeping up with it. They suddenly you realize how much of this journey is emotional, personal, and a times, so private that you can’t really share it. I’ve spent the last year and a half running and it’s time for me to finally stop, stand still and remind myself that right now, at this moment, my Family has decided this is the time [...]
