I have just joined this group. I have Multiple Sclerosis and am morbidly obese. This is a terrible combination. I am 63 years old and can not even get up enough energy to straighten the house, cook, or just ordinary tasks of living. A trip to Walmart kills my whole day and need a day to recover. I also have hypothyroid disease which just adds to the difficulty. No matter what I do, I seem to lose a few pounds and then gain more back. Being this heavy is not good for my MS, makes it much more difficult to get around and is VERY embarrasing to me. When I have fallen, there is no one that can help me get up due to my weight. Makes me want to crawl in a hole and die. I basically live on frozen dinners, eat one or two a day and popsicles because I get so hot (live in Texas). I live alone and have no support system, no children, separated from my husband of 38 years,so add depression in there as well. I am so cognitive challenged (MS), that I absolutely do not know what to do. Don't even know if this is a good group for me. Just looking for something. I used to weaar a size 7, now look at me. Just makes me cry to type this. I have thought aobut gastric bypass so many times, but am on SS, so I can't possibly afford it. Does anyone have any suggestions? Am I in the wrong group? Just don't know what to do.
