I feel like a failure. I know I’ve mentioned it before but I don’t too often… That I had gastric bypass in 2008. I lost about two hundred pounds. It’s taken eight years to put the majority of that weight back on. I’m sitting at the hematology doctor for my yearly blood check up. Due to the surgery I don’t absorb iron. I have to get iron infusions usually once a year. This year he has a student doctor I had to go through my history with him and admit the gastric bypass was a failure. He was kind but I feel it… The judgement. I think I’m projecting as I judge myself in this matter. It’s not helping my state of mind.
*edit to add… I wasn’t projecting. The doctor was very accusatory about my weight gain. He said I should see a gastric bypass specialist as to why. Then said up to my family doctor. I want to cry right now.
