Depressed



Recommended Posts

Not sure where to post this but...

I didn't have any mobility issues till after surgery. I mean it's temporary but still messing with my head. I never had problems showering or walking before.

To make matters worse, my daughter has been at her grandparents house. They planned a vacation and my daughter wants nothing to do with me. I missed her so much though. I know I'm being overdramatic but damn.

I'm on Oxys for pain but I've been having horrific nightmares since!

Like I'm actually depressed. Really depressed. I take pills for it but they're not even working.

Damn [emoji17]

April, I am not entirely sure I am following it all. What I can say is that WLS is a big deal, a big emotional rollercoaster - but it gets better. Alot better. I am six years post op, and life has gotten much much better.

Hang in there, and if you are really depressed - please call a mental health hotline and talk to someone. Thinking of you.

I am sorry you are feeling like this, just know that we are all here if you need to chat. I second Cowgirl Jane, maybe seek out a professional?

Have you spoken to your Doctor - maybe they can refer you to a therapist to speak to.

Get on top of these feelings before they get worse.

Best wishes

My theory is: major surgery is a little like being in a car wreck, you're stiff,sore and,if gonna take,awhile to heal. Take things slow, if i didn't feel would be worth it I wouldn't be planning to join you on the losers bench. Be kind to yourself, the veterans I've read here say it will and I believe them you're on your way to better health. You're being tested but I believe you'll make it. You have a lot of Baribrothers and sisters sending you love. Keep us updated.

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

        Drink a protein drink right after your workout, or get more fluids - dizziness can be from dehydration. Push liquids at all times. Good luck.
