About Me: Female, 40, Monrovia, CA, member since Dec 2013
I suffered with depression most of my life but have been depression free since Oct 2012. I am now working hard to maintain my ever healing mental health.
In Feb 2012 I weighed 300+ lbs on the day of my Gastric Bypass. Due to complications and severe ulcers & malnutrition I got down to 115 lbs. Today 12/6/13 I am in the hospital recovering from Gastric Bypass Reversal & I am at a healthy weight of 130 which was achieved by having a PICC line inserted in my arm so I could get specially formulated nutrition (TPN) at home for 12 hrs a day. I needed this boost to survive the reversal surgery.
I hope to heal from this and get back to learning to live a healthy active life that nurtures my mind, body, and soul.
