It happens to the best of us. I was written up at work for an outburst of anger that came out of nowhere. It does get better. It took about 3 moths post op before I was able to be my old self.

1 month after surgery:

Boss: I don't understand why we can't just make things work on this project.

Me: I don't understand why you can't get what I'm saying through your fuckin' head.

Boss: I don't need to put up with this from you, and he walked away.

Me, Loud enough for all to hear: Bye Felicia!

Spent 2 months in the doghouse for that one.

I'm surprised I'm not unemployed, divorced and childless. I even hated myself at times.

Thanks for this information! My surgery is scheduled August 28th. I work from home, but I probably should warn my husband and daughter. Is this a long term issue? Days, weeks, months?

You are not alone. We were warned in our pre-op class at KCBariactric that we would have mood swings and be on an emotional roller coaster because of the hormones being released from burned fat and also because we can't turn to food to comfort or calm or reward ourselves any more. I had a special talk with the RN because I was having sore breasts, insomnia, and other classic PMS symptoms, even though I am (hopefully, finally) past menopause. The nurse said it is normal and will settle down once I stop losing so fast. Hang in there, it will get better.

Natural progesterone does wonders. You font need,a script and it can be purchased at a Vitamin Shoppe or online at Amazon. Look it up. It's great for peri menopause and post menopause. It literally saved my life. I have been taking it for 15 yrs.
I only use emerita natural progesterone. You can go to their site for info. Www.emerita.com don't expect your gyno to be onboard. It requires no prescription and they will poo poo it because it naturally benefits your body in so many ways. I swear by it. Go online and do your research. [emoji4]

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
