The Gastric Sleeve Struggle: Will I ever eat normal again? #gastricsleeve #Depression
I am Helena and I made the leap and finally went through the gastric sleeve surgery on July 6th 2022. I am now ending the two weeks of liquid diet and going to puréed foods.
The mental struggle is getting to me already. I am watching people eat online cause I can’t and here I am wondering. Will I be able to have sushi again? Some pasta? A burger?
I know I did this to lose weight finally and to keep it off but I don’t wanna forsake those foods permanently. I’m just mentally hungry a lot. I’m dying for some nuggets and just..it pisses me off how ecstatic my mother is about it. Saying it will “change my life”.
I don’t see it. I just see the scars on my stomach and to me they are the ugliest thing. And the hunger is just…I just want some help. The hope that I won’t have to count every single thing I eat forever. I don’t want this to be my life for good.
Does anyone else have this?
