    Over the emotions!

    I’m not typically someone who shares or asks for help, but I’m at a loss with my emotions. I’m almost 6 weeks post op. Everything is going great, I’m losing weight, learning my new way of life, and am extremely happy with the decision I made. However, my emotions are extreme. More so than I’ve ever had. I cry at the drop of a hat. Which I can usually deal with, extreme anger however is a new one for me. Today’s events bothered me the most, a simple errand of taking my dog to a routine vet visit started with my dog getting so anxious in the car ride that he pooped. (It happens very rarely, he has bad anxiety when he gets in the car) I lost my mind! I was yelling at him and actually contemplated giving him away. Even pictured my life without him and it didn’t phase my mind. (Please know that my dog is my world, I’ve had him since he was a puppy and he’s 7 now) After I left him at the vet, I cleaned the mess in my back seat, still cursing under my breath, using every ounce of strength to not scream in the parking lot. Adding embarrassment would be the icing on that cake. Once I was in the car, my anger immediately turned into guilt and sadness about even thinking of not having my dog around. I sobbed the entire way home. I’ve heard of hormones being out of wack after surgery. Does it go away?!
