this was interesting to me today,

I saw a new psychiatrist, as some of you know , I had gastric bypass, 7 years ago. I have been on an anti depressant for 2 years, and felt like it wasnt working anymore. my psyche knew about my condition and ordered generic pills. nothing enteric,etc,etc. so my psyche goes in to her boss's office. And the boss comes in and says," maybe we need to look at if you are absorbing it all" I just blurted my gastric bypass classes and said,,,"why dont I crush them first and help absorption?" It has been working for almost a wek, and now they are thinking pf REDUCING my anti-depression meds, as long as I crush first.

Just FYI and food for thought


I posted about my step daughter I hadn't seen in 20 years,

Just got back from seeing them. I did appreciate the support from my previous post.
So how did the weekend go? you can judge,,


my first post to this group

Probably because I just found it,, my story in a nutshell,and I will support anyone. I weighed 450 pounds, I mat my future wife and her hcp daughter ( read my posts, many pics posted of Tess) I decided 7 years ago to have the total bypass. I about died as I bled out 1 month after surgery because all the sutures didn't hold. EMT's could not get a BP measure on me when they got to my house. I was in hosp for 7 days.
Since then,,no issues,,I still puke once in a while, mostly my fault because of what eating and how to chew. But I have been at 210-220 lbs for 5 years..

I have lived the weight loss life,, there is no easy way,,whatever you do ,takes commitment.

I am here to talk to anyone who wants to talk about this.


When you find out something you did 20 years ago mattered,

And it will come when you least expect.
I get a FB mssg from name I don't know from Myrtle Beach.. We do not live there but visit often as we have a perm camper site there. So I ask Mrs K if she recognizes name. Nope. hmmmm. Mrs K comes back a few mins later and says,,wasn't your ex wife's daughter that name? Last name was diff cuz of marriage ,but yeah. I hadn't seen her in 20 years. She wanted to tell me her mom/my ex had passed.We started online texting and then I said,, Im old, dammit,,just call me.
Long story short. We are talking on phone, we are gonna go down and meet her and her family, it touched me so much when she reminded me how many times I stayed up late and just talked to her when she was a teenager, and always had time for her. Her mom passed from drugs,she was a DR. jumper back when you could do it, before the computer systems ,reason for our divorce.
But to hear this grown up woman, tell me, I remember "when you said", just touched me. I cant wait to see her. Her whole family talked to my handicapped daughter on phone last night. I have not seen her since she was 17,,now she 37.
Do the right thing every day,every situation. It make take a while,but someone will eventually say THANKS!!
