Well a big reason was because i was desperately unhappy with my appearance, always dreamt of just blending in with the crowd not being pointed at or made fun of, I remember once carrying my lunch and dh lunch in the same food tray to a table in a food court while dh took ds to the toilet, a couple next to me laughed and talked about how much i was about to eat saying both plates were for me. i never cried so much in my life. Also a car full of men driving past, slowed down and started screaming that i was fat b.a.stard from austin powers. It just devastated me, destroyed my self worth. I needed to change, my son started showing signs of being conscious about how i was very different to the other mums at school, which hurt a lot. And i was sick of being treated like scum by the general
What kind of diabetes? The needle kind or controlled by diet? Heaps of people who get sleeved that have the food controlled diabetes end up not having it anymore, but the surgeon/ health team would definitely assess the case.

I've signed up yesterday I've got an appointment with my normal dr on Wednesday to talk about my sore wrists so I'm going to him about what I should do etc while I am there, yeah the waiting period is why I haven't done it sooner, I'm not sure what kind of miracle I was hoping for in the meantime but I finally decided I may as well wait the twelve months and then do something that will give me a much better chance rather than wake up in twelve months still fat with no option haha

ZE I'm so sorry to hear that. What those people did was absolutely inexcusable. Sometimes I forget we live in such a judgemental, nasty society that is capable of saying and doing these things. Since when is it a favourite past-time of ours teasing and belittling people we know nothing about?
Hopefully this is the change in your life that you need to get your confidence back PipersMummy. Keep us updated.
He has the diet controlled diabetes but controls it so poorly that he has to use insulin... Which is I guess the reason why this surgery is so important. I am praying that everything goes well and in a years time he's a different man.
