    Smile Starting to get real

    Hi - Iíve been reading this forum for a while but this is my first post. My surgery is exactly one month away and Iím excited about it but also very nervous. This has been a long time coming and so Iíve had quite a while probably too long to anticipate surgery and beyond. Looking forward to my journey though.

    Welcome and congratulations on your upcoming surgery. Try and stay busy so your mind doesn't have too much time to dwell on it, I think we have all been there. You'll do great. It's not an easy decision for anyone to make, but once you've made it and commit to it, your life will change so much for the healthier.

    What an exciting time for you.
    Congratulations on your decision to reclaim your health!
    Best thing I ever did for myself.
    I should have done it years ago.
    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.
