1) I'm more than 100 lbs overweight.
2) I have hypertension.
3) I have type 2 diabetes.
To get the procedure approved, I need to have two qualifications. So I shouldn't have a problem having the procedure authorized.
I don't look into this lightly. Honestly, if I didn't have kids, I don't think I'd do it. But I think about dying a lot. I think about dying when I go check the mail and I'm out of breath. When I sit at my desk and I can feel my heart racing. And when I think of my husband having to bury me; I get choked up. Please believe me when I say that I have nothing against being plus sized. But I don't feel good. I'm tired. I have nosebleeds from my blood pressure being so high. I have sores where my extra skin on my stomach rubs. I'm so heavy that I can't have bladder correction surgery, and when I attempt to exercise, I have to wear bladder pads so I don't completely soak myself. I'm angry at myself and want to fix it. This really is not about my looks, but about my health. I want to live for a long time and enjoy my later years. I can't even imagine dying and my kids not having me here. About my husband having to give up his driving job because he couldn't do his job if I died. How he'd probably have to sell the house or maybe lose it to foreclosure because he couldn't afford the payments without my pay. The kids would lose their medical insurance. I have a small life insurance policy, but I can't raise the premium because my health is so poor. I assure you, I'm not scared to die. I am just not ready now, in this phase of my life, to die.
