    I thought I would be walking on air this week. I have been told I am now officially back on the by-pass waiting list. I have waited so long ( six months) to be medically assessed as fit after my heart attack in October. But I feel really flat and I don’t know why, I have been waiting for so long and am frightened something will go wrong again. So iam going to have to dig deep and get some zip from somewhere.
    I suppose as I have beeen fat for more than 40 years, I would assume another few months would not matter, but it does.
    I am starting to get maudling now so will stop


    Hang in there Lindy Loo,

    As they say the best things are worth waiting for ( YES I KNOW IT DOESN’T BLINKING HELP WHEN YOU ARE DESPERATE DOES IT?). Still this is not a race, this is the rest of your life you are talking about here. This small amount of time gives you a bit of breathing space to get you head around everything and start on your journey back to health and so much more.

    Try and be patient as you will look back on this as such a small amount of time and in a few months time it will be forgotten.

    Stay strong and we will be shuffling up to make space for you on the losers bench very soon.

    it WILL happen for you

    Hi Lindy
    You are entitled to feel maudlin! It’s a HUGE deal waiting to have the surgery so no wonder your emotions are all over the place. But like the other wise people here have said, it’s not a race and it IS better to be safe than sorry.
    Keep posting. I’ve only just joined on here and I am absolutely loving it. The support is amazing from very wise, kind, funny people who have all been there.
    Love Sally x
