I'm worth it to be healthy

I'm 35 years old. I've been fighting others, but mostly myself to prove a point. Except I'm losing my life.

I'm on 5 litres of oxygen 24/7. I use a bipap at night to sleep. I'm also having issues with anemia. I'm not absorbing the nutrients I need. I have had a blood transfusion in 2008 and in 2009 I recieved iron infusion treatments. For the rest of my life I will have to recieve monthly B12 injections, daily multi vitamin and 1000 mg of Vitamin D.

I have had a blood transfusion in 2008 and in 2009 I recieved iron infusion treatments. For the rest of my life I will have to recieve monthly B12 injections, daily multi vitamin and 1000 mg of Vitamin D.

I don't have a job. I'm not married. I don't have any kids. So what's my purpose in life right? I've struggled with weight my entire life.

All I've ever wanted in life was to be happy. A chance to be like everyone else instead of being treated differently because of how I look,

I did undergo gastric bypass surgery in Jan 2003. I was over 700lbs when I had surgery. I spent 16 months away from home beginning June 2002. Two in the hospital then 6 in a nursing home for rehabilitation. Jan through March 2003 I had surgery. Spent 3 weeks on a ventilator till Feb 14th. The other 4 weeks were spent just helping me figure out how to use my legs to stand. Prior to surgery I was mobile but something happened the doctors said I developed something called ICU Neuropathy. Trust me when I say that it was painful even to the most lightest tender touch. I went back to the nursing home for rehabilitation till Sept 2003 before coming back home. I came home at 465lbs. I joined Ballys in 2005 and with the help of an amazing personal trainer was able to learn to walk again walker and hands free. Now fast forward to 2010. I'm at 586lbs as of Dec 2009. I need help. I need a friend.
I know when I have problems I don't like to deal with them. I just want to close my eyes and go to sleep. Ignore the situation all together. And run anywhere but focus attention on myself.

Reading the about you" section tears me up. Please let me know when you need to talk. It is easy for a lot of us to feel sorry for ourselves, but that is when we have to be there for each other. Nobody knows how we feel better than our teammates. You may not have a husband, or children, but you seem to have a lot of people on here that care about you. I felt an instant connection to you as I read your story. I hope you don't get sick of me checking on you. (((HUGS)))
