i named myself Gladbag for 2 reasons...
1) my last name is Glad
2) I am "Glad" to have the bag
I know that sounds crazy to someone who has not yet had the surgery, but i really am happy I have it. It is annoying at times, and i do still worry about
other people seeing it. Sometimes I wish I could just run and jump in the pool without worrying about
my bag showing, but actaully I have learned ways to deal with it. I have been to the lake for a few weekends already and it didn't really slow me down a bit.
As for dating......that's where I am at....I was lucky and had a girl I was seeing before the surgery, and so, I was able to be around her after the durgery and it wasn't as hard since she knew what was up ahead of time.....but that girl is long gone now...and I have since had to get past "the talk" with other girls and it really isn't as bad as I thought it would be.
on the one hand, yeah, it sure is something you think about
. but on the other hand, now I know I won't waste time messing around with anyone I am not actually interested in, since I don't want to go through having to explain this to someone I won't be involved with before long.
I have realized that the girl that is right for me will be a deeper thinker than some chick who gets weirded out by something so superficial, so i won't end up with a ditz, i will now end up with a real women....
anyway, read some more posts on the site, and you will quickly realize that if you are really sick, it is most likely a good choice. But figure that out for yourself.
one final thing.....
let me know when you are in LA and I'd be happy to take you out....my picture (Gladbag) is in the photobucket album i started for everyone...sorry, can't help it....i am a hopeless flirt..
