today I got the call from Megan that my coverage approved my surgery, I am so excited and anxious for my day to come. I am scheduled for December 11. Being at the meetings were very helpful to me to put my self at ease knowing everything will be ok. People talk about having their family as big supporters, but for me the only one that matters is my husband, and children. I have not told anyone else in the family, my mom knows but the reason I keep it from everyone else is because they are just to judgemental and I really don't need that negativity, I just need to worry about getting myself better and living my new happy and healthier life with my family. Anyway Im so excited and counting down the days.....

I did not tell my family (other than my husband and children) for the same reason.  They are exceptionally judgmental and would not accept that this is what I needed to do to become healthy.

Our choice to have this surgery, at least for me, did not come without a great deal of tumultuous thinking... I started the process 2 years before I had actually gone through with it.  I simply went back and forth until one day I realized I was not going to live if I didn't make a change.

Congrats on making that choice... no matter who knows. I can't speak for anyone else but I support you and if you need anything just ask!!!

Good luck and great news about insurance coverage!!!
