I got a call from my insurance company the other day and the nurse is sending me a packet of info and paperwork I need before I can get a WLS date. WOW!!! Things are just in hyper drive. She is scheduling a nutritional consult and a psych consult. I was told by my WLS coordinator that I have platinum insurance. That I would be taken care of very nicely....so cool.Looks like I will be actually getting weight loss surgery! So far so good.
Today I went to get my EKG done and chest x-ray. I had the order in my hand and the only words that popped out at me were morbidly obese. So I got to stare at that sentence for ten minutes or more. I actually got a little bit teary. I mean when I look in the mirror I do not see what I am labeled as.....morbidly obese. I mean I know I am not skinny....but really morbidly obese? Yesh.
But that's why I am doing this WLS so someday I will see normal weight and normal BMI on my doctor charts......
