Stupidly jealous that I’m not having easy time

I’ve never experienced jealousy like I have with this surgery.  I don’t want others who have healed quickly and done great to take a turn for the worse.  No way!  Instead, I just wish I was like them and was handling the aftermath of gastric sleeve surgery better.  I’ve added fiber powder to my diet, paid attention to when I’m full at mealtimes, but I’m still sick to stomach right after and I’m still struggling with constipation.  I just wish I knew why I struggled, while others had an easier time.

I’m glad forum members feel comfortable sharing their life stories and different challenges..  Some things that have been easy for me, have been hard for others and vice versa.  Either way, it’s helpful to see that I’m not alone in my experiences. I hope you start feeling better, Quill.  It evened out for me in the end, hopefully, you’ll get there too.

I understand where you’re coming from, Mia.  I did amazing right after surgery and sailed through the first few phases of the diet.  It was only when I tried transitioning to regular food that I started having problems.  Eventually, I learned my triggers and how to work around them.  Some of us struggle early on, some hit their low point at the end, and some lucky people never have problems.  You just got to do the best you can and take it day by day.

I’m sorry you’re having such a rough time. There may be no rhyme or reason you’re struggling while others don’t. Everyone’s body is just different. I do wish that you were having an easier time, and my thoughts are with you. I hope that things get easier for you very soon!
