I forgot to tell you one of the most important things I learned at the support group. We are SO lucky to have this community of lapband blogs. For a lot of people in the group, the only support they have is AT the support group. Now, it only meets once a month. Seriously, we are so lucky to have this online community where we can ask each other questions, share our stories, learn from each other, and know that what we are going through is normal! I tried to imagine where I would be at if I didn't have this blog, and you blogs, and your comments. I wonder if I would be as far along as I am now. I wonder if I would know as much about the band as I do now. I think the answer would be know.
Also, when I was talking at the support group about us bandsters, Dr. Friedman kept laughing when I used terms like bandiversary, bandsters, etc. He came up to me afterwards and said I have never heard any of those terms! I told him I would make a band language dictionary for him! lol
