Help me to deal with the past and present! Please read and understand my situation, I am not lazy, but a tummy tuck would really help me.

You took a chance now on my situation, so let me explain myself. My whole life, I have been in a battle of weight loss and gain! But as an overweight child, I endured lots of ridicule and teasing from my own family and others. As I have grown, still I am battling my weight but have had the pleasure of having 3 beautiful children and a loving boyfriend who see nothing wrong with my appearance. What they cannot see is my deep dark unhappy inner self that daily is constantly fighting with myself to try and deal with the way my appearance is. I have had a total of 5 surgeries all on my belly( 3 c-sections and 2 hernia), this has made my belly non responsive to exercise and ab crunches. My belly is so disgusting and has affected my self esteem and confidence tremendously. I know this is not a major medical condition like cancer or an accident, but this surgery would honestly make me actually be happy with myself and appearance. I do not like to clothes shop and struggle daily to find what to wear because of how clothes fit me. This is very depressing, adding fuel to the fire. I have been teased, made to feel completely ugly and disgusting and the feelings I have about myself have completely engulfed my life. I have recently lost 60 lbs( on a very extreme 500 calorie a day diet), but still am not happy because I know that no matter how much weight I lose, I still will have a belly which makes me even more unhappy. This is really a big issue I am trying to deal with, but unfortunately financially I can't. Please understand that this surgery goes far beyond my just seeming superficial, it would help my deal with all the years of teasing, weight management and self esteem issues greatly by finally being happy with how I look. Thank for taking the time to read this! Your support will not go unappreciated!!
