I`ve been offered a great opportunity, one that involves a flight...I havnet been on an airplane since i was 5months pregnant with my first born (nearly 12 years ago) and that time i was under 300lbs.
A drug company is doing a parent roundtable discusson on ADHD and ODD. We all know that my son has both. Well i started a facebook group a few years back when i joined facebook and my group has over 7000 members now and out of it comes this opportunity.
The session takes place in new york city and its a weekend thing. Leave here on friday and come home Sunday, with the meeting taking place on Saturday.
All i have to do is give my imput on various meds all related to our trials and tribulations with these disorders.
Its all expense paid , even allowing for daycare for the kiddos at home while im away!!
I am worried sick that i wont fit into the seat and god forbid if i have to ask for a different seat because of it or an extender, i will be so humiliated. I cant pass up this opportunity because of my size, dear god.
A trip to new york city with a bunch of others in our situation and lots of time to sight see and have fun.
I also need to get my passport before anything takes place but the company wants to know if i am going!?!!!
Any advice from others who are 6ft tall and over 300lbs like me , would be greatly apprecaited!!
