Not Sure How I Feel - San Bernardino, CA

Had surgery on June 13,2011, and it hasn't even been a week and I am having second thoughts whether this was the decision for me. I feel guilty that I don't want to cook for my family, nor to I have alot of energy to do anything with my daughter. Maybe this is only a temporary feeling and I truly hope it will pass, since I only had the surgery to get rid of my diabetes and as of right now, I am still on meds.

I am an older woman with many obesity related medical problems. I am looking into gastric bypass purely to improve my health. I have been through many surgeries, none of which were laproscopic. I have always done very well. The surgery, itself, does not bother me. My concern lays in the fact that I do not have a support system. Is it possible to use REALSELF as a personal online support system? I will have help at home and a counselor, but I know that I will need emotional support from those who know from experience, what I will be feeling.

Thank you, in advance, for whatever help you can give me.
