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.
