Should’ve

I have this appointment with the bariatric weight loss people for medical weight loss management, (not surgery), and I should’ve brought a friend.

Waiting here totally sucks.

I keep reminding myself that I am NOT a “mental patient” and that I am NOT broken.

I CAN do this.

Anxiety about an appointment like this is normal. It would be normal for ANYONE to be anxious about this. Any “normal” person would be uncomfortable about this. They wouldn’t have to be “crazy” to feel a little out of place.

I don’t need to assign some kind of label to myself just because I’m uncomfortable and fighting tears.

It’s hard to remember that I’m more than just some label and that I’m allowed to be emotional or have feelings without being something someone can label.

All of that said, this would have been easier with a friend. I could have used the support.

Oh well.

It is what it is.

I will survive.
