I attended my monthly support group last night and it was so motivational. I will admit that it took an effort to make the 20 minute drive once I got home. But, I was glad to do it in the end. I made sure to tell all my peers that obesityhelp was a great place to share and find answers to questions.
Now, I am letting you all know that if possible and you haven't done so, please find a support group in your area to fellowship and develop intimate relationship with people that are on the same journey as yourself. It is such a relief to share with people that have a deeper understanding of this journey that are not in my everday life. I have only attended 2 meetings and are already developing relationships.
So, that being said... I would like to thank all of you for sharing and encourage the people who haven't do so....... to find a support group in their area.
I'm looking forward to attending my first post-op group on the 31st. Unfortunately, the location is over 60 minutes away, so that may prevent me from going monthly, but I am looking forward to meeting some locale postops. Thanks for the endorsement!
