Sigh… I’m feeling kind of depressed… I’ve been eating a super low-fat diet to avoid any gall bladder issues, and my brother was teasing me about it all day. And I’ve had to limit everything I do – no going to many restaurants, and when I do go to one, there’s almost nothing on the menu I can order.

Plus my brother’s been making fun of my diet in general – he’s a gourmand, and views any sort of lower-calorie or lower-fat substitution as the height of stupidity. Every time I mention something I like, he goes on a rant about how inferior it is to “real food”… He wouldn’t allow fat-free milk in his house, even though I was paying for it – he only begrugingly allowed me to get 2% milk.

I’m just feeling down, and like I’m being kicked while I’m down.

If I get my gall bladder out, it’ll be just my luck to be one of the 20% of people who can never eat normally again, and the last couple weeks have just been a preview of what the rest of my life willbe like.

I was feeling optimistic, now I just feel doomed again.
