    whilst watching the rugby . I moved too quickly and fainted , first time in my life . Anyway they have decided that I got to stay in and have the heart op in the next ten days , part of me is really hoping that their going to say its a mistake and kick me out of hospital .

    I think I’m vulnerable at the moment and may be too super sensitive to others . Im finding my self looking out for negstive attitude from heath professionals regarding my WLS .something I must stop . That makes me as judgmental as I think others are ? How weired is that ,

    Hi Kimberley, I was watching the rugby on saturday in our local park on the way home from the shops and some of those mens legs made me feel a little light headed, but seriously, on the bright side your surgery will be all done and you will be fully recovered soon and when Jan 16 arrives it would all have been put right and you would have moved on.
    best wishes to you xx

    You could always look at the flip side of that Kim and realise that people don’t actually mean to be judgemental, even when they are!

    No wonder you are feeling vulnerable at the moment. I would be feeling exactly the same and no doubt, everyone else on this forum would too. We are only human after all.

    Just know that you have many, many friends both in ‘real life’ and online who will be rooting for you all the way. You are not alone. Ever.

    Bored , but being a good patient . It’s just the case of sitting and waiting to be transferred by ambulance for surgery . I saw a Dr who was wonderful and looked after me when I was in ITU after the bypass , he recognised my name but didn’t think it was me because I’m so tiny .( YES get in .) He really is lovely in fact all the medics and nurse are . I think I was senstive because it was mentioned about my referral two years ago to cardiac surgery . Old thought and feeling popped up , not very rational . Where I was to big and needing wls for my health but my health was so bad I wasn’t fit enough for surgery I was scared I get turned down . I know it’s not true but I went back to that time . Not their now thank goodness . Planing all the things I can do after heart. ,I’m going to get GP referral to the gym again . Oh I love to run , couldn’t do thats even after the bypass , but with a recondition heart As the Queen sing says ‘ don’t stop me now ‘

    Isn’t it fascinating how our brains can take us back to dark places in our lives in the blink of an eye? I think it proves that negative thoughts will always be lurking in the shadows, waiting to come and get us again. Only one way to deal with it – keep the flippin lights on!

    Surround yourself in the light and bright things in life. Your family, friends and positive members of your community. Faith can also be unbelievably helpful. Mine has helped me through some really dark times.

    In a year’s time, when you are walking around without a care in the world, you will look back on this time and realise how strong you are.
