I'm with you, Jane. Not that I think it has anything to do necessarily with getting older lol.
I just don't think my personal health history/diagnoses/decisions are anyone's business but my own and IF I decide to share with you, and if you don't like it, too bad, it's not YOUR decision and I do not need your opinion on it.
Then again, I have always been blessed with a very supportive and loving family so a lot of these situations are foreign to me and maybe I would react or think differently than I do now.
Than again, maybe I'm just a straight-up ***** lol. . .I've been labeled that enough times
My mother raised me to be free-thinking and independent and to make my own decisions and to not base my decisions on what other people think. I see too many people trying to make a square peg fit in a round hole and it is very painful to watch. Sometimes I just want to smack them and say "who cares??? it is YOUR decision" and that is not just related to weight loss.
I get that many people feel compelled or obligated to share and justify their decisions, especially with family. It's not that I haven't told people about my surgery, I have. However, there is a limited group of people who I felt like sharing with (OH excluded lol). I just don't feel that I "have" to tell anyone anything.
I dunno, the more I write, the more I go back to maybe I am just a *****
Guess this wasn't helpful at all
