My Emotions Are Crazy



Recommended Posts

I'm a week out & normally I'm not a crying, but every now & then I realize I'm crying like crazy about pain: with the staples, gas pains & now hungry pains. My mind is so freaky confused. Some days I'm good, some days I have to lay in this bed all day. I just wish this would all pass now. Is anyone else going through crazy emotions?

I have read on this website of others having difficulty due to hormonal changes our bodies will go through. Go to the VST home page and search for post op emotions hormonal changes. You should find plenty to read...

Yes Kay. I have been on somewhat of a roller coaster too. There are several dynamics at work here. Hormones, life changes, not being able to turn to food. This is my experience. I have snapped at strangers and just been like whoa where did that come from. We need to cut ourselves a break, this is a huge life change and our bodies and mind need a chance to adjust.

There are several posts here that address it. In the search bar type hormones and there are several descriptions of what our bodies are going through.

I wish u well :). Suzie

I have honestly been the same way! I'm only 7 days post op and yesterday was an awful day for me in terms of mood swings. ;-( I was just upset crying one moment because of the pain in one of my incisions and the next I was yelling at my hubby over nothing, which made me cry even more! It's been a whole cycle so far. I didn't think I was going to have such a hard time mentally with everything, but it's exhausting. It's hard not to be able to eat and to change your mind frame! The first three days I felt like I had made the worst decision ever, even though I researched and thought about it for over a year plus some!

I hope it gets easier for you. ???? I think it's going to just take time. It's a process and no one said it was easy or a quick fix! ????

Good luck with everything!

Im either crying or angry all the time. I'm 9 weeks post op. I'm going to seek professional help, maybe they can prescribe me something to take the edge off.

I feel your pain

I am in the same boat. I have been dealing w this for a couple of months. However, I am really trying to turn it around. If really believe if u change u way of thinking you can get out of it. I still have my good days and bad.

Last week I was actually diagnosed w a personality disorder. It seems I always had it but it came to ahead after the surgery.

This surgery is already changing my life though in such a short time, so I am trying to realize the bad will always be there on and off. But thinking positive helps

I don't know if this helped or I need to vent, but even with all of these hurdles I am starting to become proud of myself. You all will too. Good luck and work on your breathing 

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
