I need weight loss surgery but can't afford it
by Tania King
I am a 39 yr old who has been desperately needing weight loss surgery but I am cut down every way I turn because I'm told that I don't have a life-threatening illness.
Apparently I'm not being considered because I don't have diabetes or high blood pressure and because I am active.
My partner lost her job, my hours have been cut by 30 per pay period and I cant afford to pay for surgery on my own. I'm also told that I need to see a psychiatrist as I may not be mentally ready either.
I'm told too many differing things and I just want my life back. Is there anyone willing to give me a chance and help me?
