I prayed for days on this one…quit my basket thing at Thanksgiving…and then I asked for diff hours at this last job and got laughed at then told no and that my kid will struggle at this age if im home or not so it doesnt matter…which was a big deal for me. Then monday she let 2 other people have diff hours…

the appt didnt go so well…my kidneys are stressed still due to protein in my urine. A1C was bad lets just say the second job was much harder on my body then I had thought. They still want me t consider gastric bypass…thing is for my insurance and for the procedure you have to have money upfront which I DO NOT have…but since I dont work so much gonna start back on the treadmill…am kinda lost. Mad cuz of money too…the clinic I go to turned some of my bills over for collection…why does money suck so bad????

Money, the root of all evil. And having all that going on is stressing you out even more, which is not good. I'm sorry to hear all this is going on right now. Glad to hear you are going to work on getting more exercise, that will help alot. Take care, and stay strong. Give it up to the Lord, he is there for you, it will get better.
I'm praying for you. Blessings, Mickey

Malissa, I'm sorry you are so frustrated right now, but I sure understand it. It is disappointing to realize things aren't going as you want. It's also good that you see that your second job was very hard on you physically. That's good input to have when you are considering returning to the position. How can you make it work better for you now that you know the stress is doing bad things to your body. Carol

well My number have been up so figured it wasnt that god but did not expect this. At the same time I knew that job was kickin my butt. yes stress is a real foe of diabetes. just in a rut i guess…would love to have the bypass as a tool to help me but have to have some of the cost upfront…which well well see how tax time goes.

Mickey/CCHT 2011-12-13 03:18:51 -0600 Report

I pray it works out for you. It has been suggested to me to have the surgery, but my insurance does NOT cover it at all! So it's off the table for me.

I have had friends which underwent the gastric bypass and from their experience I recommend NOT having the gastric surgery. The pouch they make can only hold 3 oz of food.

But my friend ate more and expanded it. She also is putting more weight on again. (she also had the skin surgery after she lost all that weight) She looked good for a while but now she's halfway back to getting back to her pre surgery weight. And because the reduction of the gastric tract is so severe she has to take a special formulation of vitamins & minerals for the rest of her life. And as you know when it's done it cannot be undone. one cannot unbreak an egg.

Hope tax time helps you resolve the cost factor. I have one friend who had a bypass and WORKED really hard at it, is now doing commercials for the local Kia dealership and looks wonderful. She said it wasn't easy, but, like you, it was a real jump start on the process of weight loss.

On a humorous note about the unexpected results of bypass surgery: she told me once that she had jumped off a chair where she had been changing a light bulb and was scared because something made a slapping sound. She couldn't figure out what it was & decided to repeat what she had done, since no one else was around to make any noise. Repeated the jump; repeated the slapping sound. Realized her butt had slapped her in the butt…she had lost so much weight. That was when she decided on a little plastic surgery to finsih it off!

comment on humorous sound action; Oh, Oh if Only!! That would be my greatest wish and prayer to have lost soo much as to have to identify the mysterious "Whap—-Flap" caused by empty floppy-pops of skin which has been rendered free of excess globs of floundering fat. I WISH!!

Thank you! I'm very happy to hear you are making strides in doing what you need to to take care of yourself. I totally got where you were coming from before. It is so hard to take of people and try and provide and all the stress and worry that comes with that. I'm just glad you are able to change some of those factors and start spending a little more time on yourself.
If you get sick bad, who would look after everyone and provide. So putting yourself first is like investing in your families future!
I don't know if you are a women of faith, and I hope I don't offend…but…give it to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He walks with you and will help you, if you just reach out to him. He will listen. If you give God the worries you cannot deal and pray, he will lift you up and provide for you and your family. He is truly wonderful.

Please take care, and keep my posted on how you are doing.
God Bless, mickey

I am a woman of faith! I go to this AMAZING Church I LOVE called Celebrate…really when you go there it feels like home. Yes no one would look after me so it would be pointless. My second job called me yesterday and wants me back so I said I will think about it only if I can change my hours and days! They said we will work with you so take the next 2 weeks off to think about it. So we will see…but WILL not go back if I cAN NOT CHANGE DAYS AND HOURS!!! LOL…

Mickey/CCHT 2011-12-11 03:50:09 -0600 Report

You go girl! If they want you back, then make sure it is on the terms you need them to be. Your not being selfish, it is about doing what you need to do for you and your family!
Glad to hear you have an amazing church family. That helps alot!! So you already know to give this to God! Sounds like it may be working if your job is callng to get you back!
Good luck and let me know how you are doing!
God Bless, Mickey
