My wife has several eye procedures set up to help stop the growth of extra leaky blood vessels in the back of her eyes. This should prevent some future vision problems.
The gastric surgeon consult is next week. I hope he will think its a good fit. She is eating almost no solid foods lately. She just can't.

How are all of you? Do those of you in the US have Thanksgiving plans?

Did anyone have a nice Hanukkah? Or have other holiday plans?
My wife is having a gastric stimulater implanted (surgery) next week. Always worrying to have surgery, but we're glad she's getting it, and hope it will help in the long run.
Hope all are well.

Hi Gr3tta. How have your wife's eyes settled after the surgery? What's happening with the gastric surgery? I don't know how you do it. Seems like one constant battle. Hope you can plan something nice too. Other holiday plans here. Nothing much am going to get together with family Christmas eve. Small gathering but I can handle that. What about yourself Gr3tta?



The narc family doesn't sound too good at all Marilyn. Do you have some-one in real life to talk to about that? It's so close to christmas now. Very easy to give up on taking care of ourselves due to being busy with too much to do. Have to say that parties and food are hard for me and finding that stop button for my brain when I get home to stay away from the food isn't too easy.



I saw Bohemian Rhapsody last week. It made me sad but then I saw that many facts were skewed. What do they say? Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.


Any who, I went and got my quarterly blood tests done for diabetes and a few other things last Wednesday. Have not made a follow up appointment with the GP because I dont want a rip from him. Not sure what he will say if he weighs me because the weight has been going on. I have been taking Vyvanse for my binge eating disorder. I was started off at the lowest dose of 30mg and and am due for an increase to 50mg in a couple of days. Hope that helps.



Wish we could have a walking group on here but somehow morph it into real life. Any takers?

Possum,narc family problem resolved for now.I have been one month no contact.

I just had my annual diabetic review,they took blood and did my HC1 test etc
I also cancelled the follow up with the nurse cos I knew the results were that blood sugars were too high and I didn't want them forcing me onto some medication that would cause my body more problems.Meanwhile I have the same problems with foods and eating the wrong things only ten times worse cos it's christmas.

I have resolved to go on a strict diet to get my sugar levels down and get healthy starting in the new year.

Hope you can maintain the distance from troubled family members Marilyn. Next year is not that far away so fingers crossed a change in the page can help us both make changes.

I saw my P'doc today. We talked about writing when the binging was happening. Least that way we can track what is happening and when. Might start to make more sense.

Let's hope we can both get back on track Possum.The doctor got back to me with blood results,sugars are high as are liver results.I told the doctor I had had a scan and they diagnosed fatty liver,she wants me to go in for an examination and have another scan,and she wants me to see the diabetic nurse for a medication review,so I have an appointment for Monday 7th January.

I have been no contact with family for a month now!

I am pleased that your doctor got in contact with you Marilyn. Means that they care. Also good that the appointment is made. Maybe a tweak in your meds can help you feel better and help you stay positive and keep on track.

Having a scan will also let you and the dr know if anything else is going on.
