Ten years!

Feb 27, 2023

Incredible to realize ten Earth years have passed since Dr. Srikanth did his thing. 

Not much has changed since my last update, which was itself almost a year ago. Still not drinking alcohol or indulging in weed. (I am drinking an O'Doul's as I type this, though, which is still probably not a great idea.) My husband and I aren't exercising like we should be; there are some frustrating ongoing fatigue issues on his end that make it more challenging than it should be. Still, we ought to prioritize moving around, like, ever. I still don't know what I weigh.

I do need to schedule a follow-up with Dr. Srikanth's office. It's been a long, long time since I had all the bloodwork and bone density scans and whatever. And, ugh, speaking of bloodwork: this might not be a Dr.-Srikanth's-office thing, but I've been very concerned about my hair. I never had a lot of hair; what I do have is fine in texture and thin in quantity to begin with, so the dramatic thinning along my hairline has been demoralizing to say the least. So yeah, I have a medical to-do list.

But anyway! 

Still glad I had surgery. Vertical sleeve gastrectomy was the right surgery for me at the right time. I'm forty, and life is good—although I happen to have a gnarly headache right now so this entry is kinda running out of steam. But, like, in general? Life is very good!


Editing: LOL I just scrolled down and realized I am in exactly the same position I was in last March: moping about my hair and aware that I need to get around to scheduling a follow-up at Dr. Srikanth's, but not actually doing it. Hm. HMM. Oh, horrible_monster, you scamp.

2009, at a friend's wedding. Probably weighed ~250 at this point. (I miss that dress.)
Very awkward selfie! I should probably ask for assistance next time, but I'm impatient.
