    Miss ash i was completely the same. I was so excited leading up to the surgery but a few days before the fear set in. 
    This may sound super dooper weird to some people but the way i relaxed and was able to sleep was to watch "dr pimple pooper" on youtube. Lol. I dont know how i stumbled across the clips but they really relaxed me while grossing me out!
    It will be over before you know it and itss sooooo worth it. Goodluck

    Ahhh laggy that post made me giggle about the boobies. My incisions also itched like crazy. And i reacted to the dressings. My doc gave me a mild steroid cream which helped.
    It gets easier i promise!

    Im happy there is a loss but I cant help but feel like im doing somthing wrong as the drops have been small for a few weeks. Am i eating to much? Am i eating the wrong things? Snacking more than i should? These are all the thoughts that repeat in my head. Im meeting with my dietition tomorow so hopefully this will put my mind at ease.

    Hi ash,
    My only advice after being on 5 weeks opti myself is to stay busy. If you feel hunger kicking in occupy yourself with somthing else. Thats what got me through.
    And as ironman said, 1 day at a time
