My daughter and I talking about my surgery.
the thing is, my kids know my weight has been a very sensitive issue
for me. My kids starting drawing family pictures and when I went from
being a stick figure to a round figure, I knew, something was different.
They no longer viewed me the way I thought about myself. On some
occasions not meaning to, they have slipped and said something about my
weight. I am a naturally an emotional person. So while I know they would
never mean to hurt my feelings, it does. So they walk on egg shells in
that area of my life. I hate that they have to, but I can't help it. For
the first time my daughter talked about it, and as you can see she
didn't want to say out loud what this surgery would do for me. Saying it
would make me skinny meant she had to imply I was fat. In a round about
way. She of anyone else has made the most comments. Once she told me
that my stomach was disgusting. That was the worst moment for me. She
didn't mean to hurt my feelings, she called it like it was. She said
what I say, every time I see it. Anyhow, here is the whole video.
