Nov 29, 2008 I got hurt at work and have been unable to work since with a back and neck injury I have spent over 2 year's in Physical Therapy and still seek Pain Management in order to deal with daily activities. I have been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease, rheumatoid arthritis in my neck and lower back, bulging disc in lower back and I have a pinched nerve in my neck causing my left arm to go numb with tingling in my fingers. I now suffer from depression and have social anxiety ! I have always had a hard time with my weight over the year's and have been obese for over 8 year's. ranging around 250 Lbs. On March 30, 2010 I was 280Lbs. This was the time I decided to take back my life ! At my highest weight along with being hurt, I was no longer able to bend over, get up my step's, get out of bed, nor walk 1 block without being in pain. So much was going on with me I had to seek Help in a different manner. On March 30, 2010 I had Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery in order to take back my life ! This was the best decision I ever made ! As of now Aug 2011 I am maintaining around 170 lbs. and my life is changing for the better. I have learned proper nutrition along with exercise and have started to live again, I went from a size 44" pant's to a 32" a 3XL to a SM-Med shirt. I am now in need of liposuction Surgery for Gynecomastia in order to remove the excess fat deposits I want gone from my body after my weight loss and my Insurance will not cover the procedure. This is something I have been dealing with since I was 12 year's old and it has hurt my self esteem ever since.. Having this surgery would help with my self esteem, depression and Social anxiety , i'm sure of this.. I am just not able to afford the procedure on my own and That is why I am pleading for HELP ! Please give if you can to Help and support me along the way, I truly appreciate anything you can give, Every Dollar help's , can you spare $1.00 PLease and pass this on to your friend's for me ? Word of Mouth and Prayer work wonder's.. Help me live again ! God Bless Tom
