Well today I had one of my many appointments...I had to see the Pulmonary Doc. I was nerves and I just thought he was not going to clear me...But It all checked out fine...98% Oxygen level..so I asked why It felt like 50% oxygen level...he explain because of my 337 weight the heart and the lungs work EXTRA harder so there for I feel like im not getting enough Oxygen...But I have a few more appointments with the Nutritionist and still havent seen Phycologist..I cant seem to find one specialized for the surgery..I called insurance today but they acted like they had no CLUE as to what I was talking about....But im moving along and I feel so motivated the Pulmonary Doc. made me feel good about my decision he was telling me how great and much better im going to feel. I cant wait to run again, and to soon WAKE UP FEELING WELLLLLLL RESTED!!

First of all I would like to introduce myself, My name is Melanie I am a 28 yr old single mother of 2 litle girsl Ashley(7) and Jasmine(9). I love my kids dearly. Like i said im 28 and weigh 337lbs....I really dont know what to do with myself anymore, Im tired of feeling crappy all the time, Im tired of being depressed, crying, miserable...but most of all im tired of feeling like death!..I have comed to the point where I have wished to God for him to take my soul..Altho this is not what I really want because I do have 2 children that I LOVE....But if it was not for them I think I would have rolled over and died a long time ago. I want to get the surgery beacause I feel like this will help and improve my health....I cant even walk a good 3 blocks when im already feeling like I need an OXYGEN tank...Im only 28 and have NO DESIRE what so ever to go out...Summer is here and I feel the worst!...I have no family here in New York...My mom lives In Honduras...My dad..well never really knew him and I am the only child...thats another reason why im scared..because I feel like I have no one...No one to be there for me...Plus my kids are all I have and Im all they have..I would never forgive myself if I died while surgery or after...then again I might just die if I dont get it anyway...So like they say "YOU ARE DAMMED IF YOU DO...AND DAMMED IF YOU DONT". I joined this forum because I wanted to get info and see.read what everyone is/has gone thru. I also joined because I feel like it will be a great support system for me so im hoping to make new friends and to get all the feed back I can possibly need!
