Ok I want a lap band surgery, which is a less invasive, less risky surgical procedure than gastric bypass. Both are to lose weight. I am a 6 ft tall woman, and recently stepped on the scales in horror, I am weighing in at 245 lbs, the most for me EVER! I carry my weight pretty well due to my height, but that doesn't make right, provide me with much comfort. If just diet and excersise were the answser, I would have already succeeded at those attempts. So the lap band is my only hope as far as I can see. One problem....the commercial for is states it is not for people with autoimmune diseases.. Ughhh! I guess surgeries that aren't really necessary, us MS'ers should avoid. But what is a person to do? This extra weight isn't good for my BP or my heart. Before any "skinny" people reply "Well just stop eating" Let me tell you that sounds easy to some, but not me. My answer to that is....some people smoke, some people take drugs, some are sex addicts....I love food! A trip to the dentist last year I believe caused my second attack ever...first of all I am terrified of dentists, and novacaine and me do not do well together, that stuff in novacaine... Epinephrine (spelled wrong I know) I have a bad reaction every time, my BP spikes bigtime, and I have a racing heart rate from it also. This does happen in some people I am told. So how would I ever have a surgery that could make me healthier if I cant even handle going to the dentist? Help me please!

I was diagnosed with Epilepsy when I was 10. I am currently 20 years old am at a point in my life where I am starting to lose hope on having my seizures controlled because throughout my life I have tried multiple medications but the ones that worked my body used to and then would stop. The longest Ive been free of them was only 5 months. Im trying to find something in my life truly worth living...
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
