Hi my name is Tiffany, I have been overweight for about 10 years now, even though I have been put on diets since I was 5yrs old. This emotionally smashed me growing up. I was always an active child played soccer, cheerleader, even a gymnast. Always told I couldnt eat candy or I couldnt have second helpings. I was raised in various foster homes because my mom was an acoholic. Finally at age 13 I got to move back in with my mom after my dad decided he didnt want anything to do with me. Which wrecked me emotionally, well living with my mom I was able to eat what I wanted when I wanted. So of course I took advantage. I gained 90 pounds in three months and up to 20 pounds a year. Which 20 pounds doesnt sound like alot but over the years it adds up. I have tryed phentarmin through the doctor it's part of the phen phen group. Along with other various pills this is the one I do remember. I have several complications related to being overweight for instance psuedotumor cbria. Some other complications that you wouldnt think would be related to weight but I know deep down it is because of it. The doctors have told me since I been 16 I dont have much longer. Now being 23 and having a daughter of almost 2, I have alot to live for and I am not ready to go. First I was in fear because of the extra skin, but now I realize life is way to important to worry about something so small. Even something worth saving for so eventually I can get it fixed. I am sure this is a sob story to most but this is my life.
I cant stand the emotional pain, or the physical aspects anymore of being overweight. I have a hard time walking without get short of breath, in fact I feel this makes me a bad parent and how can I be a good parent if I cant be physically active for my child. I hurt so bad at my age and I am finally truly scared. I have no family here in Idaho I am my only support system. I am on medicaid and I know their is a big list of what you must show to be approved. Which is hard for me because of all the abuse I have been through physically and emotionally I blocked most my memory's so I dont know who to contact to get my previous records. I know I am just one person and noone will probably care about my story but life is so short and mine is going to be shorter because of being overweight. My aunt was 500 pounds and died of a heart attack. Please if someone can help me It would be appreciated my daughter is all I have and Im trying to hold on to faith and my love for her and god....... I hope someone will hear my plea and be able to help me resolve my issue...
