Apr 21, 2012Well I got my first consultation date with the surgeon set up for May 23rd of next month. I am excited yet nervous at the same time. I have also set a quit date to stop smoking for May 31st. I have never tried to quit smoking before, so this is going to be a hard one for me but I can do it. I don't feel like I have my mother on board for support since she feels that I get all my services for free since I am on disability, I am trying to make her realize I OBVIOUSLY have health issues since I am on disability but she called my ailments drama, but I am not going to let her deter me from my success. I just wish she could be happy for me like she was for my sister when she had the lapband done.
