Topic: RE: Visiting France. Tips?

I lived there for two years.  Parisiens are as rude as any other folks from large cities (New York anyone?) but they'll really appreciate your attempts at French, however bad that may be.

Some of the older buildings/cafes may present some problems re space, and the toilets may be a challenge (many old cafes still have "Turkish toilets" aka hole in the floor), but it's all part of the charm lol.

Take comfy shoes, a sense of humour and a warm smile and you'll have a great time.  Share your pics when you come back, pleaee!

Topic: RE: I hope my surgery does not get cancelled/postponed

You have weeks to go, so you'll be fine.  Only if you have an active infection will they postpone surgery.

Topic: RE: Friend Requests

I don't accept random friend requests because my profile and photos are set to friends only.  

I only add friends to invite people to R&R, I don't have OH friends outside of that group.   Too many weirdos find their way in here!

Precisely why I don't do bariatric FB Pages.  You often find the Admins are flakes too - I doubt I'd survive more than a couple of posts before I got kicked off

Topic: RE: Finally under 230!

Which organs would those be?    Almost everyone who's successful here eats a diet that includes complex carbs, they just don't eat bread, pasta or rice.  Absolutely NOTHING wrong with that.

I still have EVERY organ I was born with!

Topic: RE: Has anyone gone thru Antidepressants withdrawals?

I was only on it for a year, for menopause symptoms, so not too long.  I didn't feel bad on it, and I never intended to be on it long term.  I would always recommend a slow withdrawal.

Topic: RE: Has anyone gone thru Antidepressants withdrawals?

I stopped Effexor cold turkey and it was aweful for about 3 weeks, then gradually got better over the next 3 weeks or so.

I wouldn't recommend it.  Brain zaps anyone?

Topic: RE: My weight loss story

Despite somebody using your post for his own agenda, you will find people are generally very kind and supportive in here.  You have a great story to share and wanting to pay that back IS a good thing.

Your journey could be an inspiration to all those coming behind you, so If you can stick round and impart some of your experiences, I'm sure many people would be grateful.

I have been here for over 12 years and receive great support from people here.  I believe it is instrumental to long term success.  I look forward to seeing you on here more often so we can really get to know you x

Topic: RE: My weight loss story

Yeah, a whole two sad, bitter, regretful hags liked my comment to you.  That's proof of everything you've said.  it's a huge Hag conspiracy to run everybody off the board ...  but not before we give them all a good kicking first!

I guess you and I see things very differently.  And for that I'll give thanks every day.   I'd hate to make myself look a complete tool every time I fired up my keyboard.

Topic: RE: Introducing myself, telling my story and reaching out to connect with others

Oh FFS, this is old surgery wars thinking.  There is no reason for the OP to run to a surgeon.  She clearly knows exactly what she's doing and is sharing her wisdom, not looking for olden day advice.

A revision is a very serious undertaking and should be a last resort.  Most insurance companies have a one and done clause now.  It's different than when you (or I) had our surgery.  I wouldn't even qualify for surgery now or would have a hard fight getting it.  And there's a reason why there are not a massive number of surgeons who can do a DS and even fewer that can do a revision all these years later!  Think about it ...

Topic: RE: Medic alert for bypass?

Put Medicalert into the search function.  This is a doozy of a subject and I'm sure there are several old threads with all the different opinions.

Personally I would rather an EMT or paramedic gave me aspirin if I'm having a heart attack.  I'll worry about the ulcer I probably won't get from one pill to chance

Not true.  B3 and B6 toxicity are both very damaging.  If you have high B12 numbers, you clearly are not peeing them out, although there is no evidence of toxicity.
