Zoe’s Bariatric Surgery

Hi! My name is Zoe. I used to weigh only 150 pounds in high school. I was healthy, I felt good, and I was confident. As the years have passed I have put on over 100 pounds. I have tried exercise and several different diets. All that’s happened is I’ve put on more and more weight. I no longer feel beautiful or confident, I have a lack of energy, I feel unhealthy and I am always getting sick. My doctor recommended that I get bariatric surgery because she felt as though that might be my only choice at this point. She said if I continue down this path that I am going to have a hard time having kids, I could get cervical cancer, and my risk of getting everything is severely increased. I don’t want to live like this anymore. I did something I never thought I would have to but I was proud of myself for doing it, I applied for the surgery!! I got a call a few weeks later saying that my insurance did not cover it. I am a young full-time college student & I work full-time; but I really don’t have the money to do this on my own. If you know me, you know I never ask for anything, I never choose to reach out even when I’ve been at my lowest but I need this! I am afraid of what will happen if I don’t get the help I need. If you can donate even $10 that helps! Please share my story with others to get word around. I just want to feel healthy & beautiful again.
