Congratulations on working your way there! You've done a terriffic job and you should be very proud. What am I saying? I know you are! keep up the great work. I know what you guys are saying with the 2 years coming up; it seems like it was just the other day! I mean, I've lost a lot of weight and people don't recognize me anymore, but it seems like I just had surgery. Time flies, eh? Let me tell 'ya, the not getting recognized by people I used to be good friends with really hurts. I mean, seriously, anyone else had this issue? I saw someone in the grocery store and we used to really laugh it up; be good friends. I haven't seen them in about a year and a half, pretty close to after my surgery date. I saw them and they could not remember me. They're like, "Nuh-uh! No way! You're Jen?! Naw!" They were so baffled. It hurt my feelings because I could see in their eyes they really had no clue who I was. Not a shred of recognition whatsoever! Wow. It struck deep. That must've been what George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) felt like when he "was never born" on It's A Wonderful Life! You know?
Okay, sorry. Didn't mean to turn this about me. I apologize, Elisa. Have you every experienced that? I'll stop now.
