I had friends who were not as friendly as I thought they were. I only told about my plan to have the gastric sleeve surgery to my family, so it was a surprise to many of friends when they found out about it after the surgery. A few of them were rude enough to tell me that I made a mistake because I could have done a different way. Their comments hurt me so I cut my relationship with them. I don’t mind having a lesser number of friends as long as I know that they have my back.
