My name is Kelly and I'm 35. I have been overweight my whole life. I have been struggling with my weight my whole life. I remember i didn't have friends because of my weight. I would get harrassed and beat up because of my weight. I have no self-esteem because of my weight. My weight has been an issue my whole life and i have tried alot of diets, counted calories, starved myself, binge and purge and the list goes on. I have even tried to take my own life because of my weight when i was younger. its hard to admit that but its true. I havent been suicidal for a long time because i know my life is precious and my 2 kids keep me going. To alot of people my life seems easy but in reality it aint. I hate being in public because i am overweight. I hate the looks i get, the stares, the putdowns, and its hard dealing with that everyday. To alot of ppl i seem like that happy person but inside i am dying because i know my weight will always be a problem. My relationships all have been not good because of my weight, my self esteem so low that when im in a relationship that the guy can't handle me, because of my weight. I don't want my kids to be embarrassed of me when they get older. My daughter is scared that i will die because i am so big. I want to be around and enjoy life for my kids. I want to be able to go outside and run around with my kids and not be scared to be out and about with friends.
My depression has been all because of my weight, I have the opportunity to have surgery and prolong my life, but funds keep me from realizing that. I recently found out that i have high cholesterol, high sugar, respiratory problems, and i will have heart problems. All these health problems run in my family and most of my family is gone because of it. I don't wanna be gone, because i have a reason 2 reasons to live and those are my 2 kids. So I am hoping i can find the rest of the funding i need to have the surgery. I don't wanna die, i wanna live.
