Operation Stomach Snip is Progressing

So I'm back from California and mostly settle back into my everyday life again. I called my surgeons office and talked to them about the next steps that I need to accomplish getting my surgery. I called and got my psych evaluation set up for tomorrow and I'm not going to lie I'm nervous as hell. I've been told time and time again that my being Bi-polar is NOT something that will disqualify me from getting the surgery but it still makes me nervous. I'm medicated and have been for a year so I know that will look good. From what I've been told they're mainly focusing on making sure that I don't have an eating disorder, that I understand what I'm getting myself into, and that I have a good support system. I'm probably stressing over nothing but until I'm cleared I'm going to be pretty nervous.

Other than that I have my nutrition appointment on the 16th which I hope will be my last appointment beforehand. I need to be signed off on it but when I was supposed to go back for my follow up last time the breaks went out and then it kind of fell to the back burner. I've been keeping track of what I eat since I got back from California because they need 30 days of a food journal before I can be approved. It will be like four days short of 30 days, but hopefully that's okay. After the nutritionist I have blood work that needs to be done, from what I understand it's just testing vitamin levels and the such so minus the fact that my vitamin D has been low since I got here I think I'm pretty good.

Lastly I have an appointment on the 22nd to HOPEFULLY set my surgey date which should be within two weeks from then. Hopefully. I'm not going to lie, I'm scared. A small part of me is like what the fuck are you doing Becca? But I KNOW that this is what I need to move forward with my life in a happier and much healthier way so I'm more excited than I am scared. It's pretty nerve racking the closer I get, but this is what I've been working on for months now, so I've got this.

The Bestbian Visit

I've already told you all about the first three weeks I was here. I basically read a book a day and hung out with my siblings. We're a good looking bunch..

Then the day before my parents flew in my bestbian flew in. I drove down to the airport to pick her up and we went to Denny's on the way home and caught up. The next day we were supposed to go to my hometown Borrego but I got a call from my sisters school telling me she was sick and I needed to pick her up, so we just hung around the house until it was time for me to pick my parents up from the airport. Saturday my mom sent Little B and I to go get pedicures and I asked if we could go to the beach because Little B had never seen the Pacific ocean, she said yes so off we went. We played in the water and Little B stole two big jugs of sand for her boyfriend who grew up in Oceanside. It was sweet.

While we were driving back to the house I got a phone call from my mother and enter family drama that I'm not going to talk about. It was a lot of crazy and let me tell you, the Kaiser hospital in San Diego is straight out of Grey's Anatomy with hot dude doctor. It's like on the application they have a box "are you hot?" and if you check no you're not hired. Seriously sexy. We got home around 2 and I didn't end up sleeping until 4.

The next day Little B and I went to Borrego so I could show her around my home town. We went and looked at the statues around town and I showed her all the places I used to go.

That night we all seriously needed to unwind and we were supposed to go to a drag show, but the club had a plumbing emergency and we ended up not being able to go. Instead my mother, sister, bestbian, sister in law, cousins, and aunts all decided to go to the buffet at the casino. My sister in law announced that she would be eating the $30 worth of food that we had to pay per person, but it was delicious.

There were a lot of us. After dinner we went off and gambled a bit. I did not inherit my moms luck unfortunately, so no big wins here. When we were done me, bestbian, mom, sister, and sister in law all went back to my mom's house and played Cards Against Humanity. This is where I learned my mother is in fact a horrible person. Please examine exhibit A and B.

She laughed SO hard at the police brutality card it was awful. So awful haha. We ended up staying up late and cracking up laughing all night. It was a great night. Little B had to be at the airport at five and wanted to go out to breakfast so I decided to take off at one thirty instead of four like we were going to and just drop her off early. We decided to go to Denny's again and our waiter was two things. 1) Obviously super high. 2) Obviously SUPER gay. We ate our meal, got our check, and waited at the cash register for ten minutes before he came to the front. He came up to the front and said "You know, that guy back there thinks I'm hitting on his girlfriend. He was so threatened he pulled out pictures of their baby together like I was going to care about that. A) I don't want your woman. B) HELLLLOOOOO I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GAY." Even though his service was shit that one statement got him a ten dollar tip because it was hilarious. I dropped off the bestbian, turned the music up as loud as it could go and drove home.

It was a crap weekend for her to come out with all of the drama going on, but it was so great to see her again! I can't wait until I get to see all the time.

It's Another Mandatory Post

So, I haven't posted in forever. I got to California and was thrown into playing house single mommy style. My brother was a huge help with my little sister, but my life was pretty much the same thing day in and day out for three weeks. I was given an iPad as payment for watching my siblings so my day went: Wake up at 5:50 and get Sam dressed and on the bus, go back to sleep, wake up, read mom's iTunes library, cuddle Sam when she got home from school, read and watch her play, sleep, repeat. Then my bestbian came out to visit and a lot of shit went down with family issues. She came out to meet my family and we managed to unload all of our dysfunction on her in one weekend. I'm surprised she still likes me at the crazy we threw at her. I won't be getting into what happened because frankly it's no one but our business but it was pretty much the most stressful weekend of my life thus far. I will however talk about the other things we did together when I post again, I promise. After she left my mother went on a pinterest queen rampage and made a bunch of her old furniture her bitch by redoing them and completely redecorating her bedroom. She's working on the living room and dining room next. I've learned that when she asks what my opinion is she doesn't really care. All she wants is HER opinion said in my voice, so that's what I've been giving her. Last night my sister in law spent the night and we watched Rent and sang along at the top of our lungs. She'd never seen it and thought we were freaks, totally worth it. Then some more family shit went down that caused me not to be able to sleep until almost five in the morning. The past week has been the most stressful vacation of my life. I haven't posted at all while I've been here which has been brought to my attention multiple times in the past few weeks by Melissa. So this is my typical I'm alive and when I have a few moments in the upcoming week I'll sit down and write out everything I can tell ya'll about. I even have news on the surgery front! Yaaayyy!
