So glad I can stop driving my friends/family nuts!

Hello everyone...I am so glad I found this site! I've tried finding someone experienced to talk to, but it seems as though most women I meet who have had breast procedures wanted augmentation, not reduction. I will never understand why women pay good money to have back pain and never be able to find shirts that fit! I'm 25, and approximately a 36H, though my cups are a bit small. From what I've read so far, that makes me one of the larger pre-op women on the site, but so many of you are expressing the same feelings I have about my breasts that it doesn't seem to matter. I was 14 when I first made the change to DD, and I actually cried when I was school shopping with my Mom and that bra fit! Ever since that day I've wanted a reduction, and now it's finally coming. Initially my surgery was supposed to be two days from now, on July 26th. But just yesterday I received a call saying that the entire OR had been shut down for the week, and was told that my BR needed to be rescheduled for Aug 22nd. I was devastated! I understand that most women had/have to wait months for their prodecures, but it's only been six weeks since I first tried on my ill-fitting, $70 36H and decided that enough was enough. After over ten years feeling as though my breasts were deformities, I'm ready to feel normal. I'll admit, I didn't handle it well, and my poor boyfriend had to attempt to comfort me while maintaining his composure when he gets very upset at anything that upsets me. Anyway....pardon my long-winded rant. What it really boils down to, is, I'm excited to find this site, and impatient for the end of August!
