Do you see a therapist? Are uou on any medication? The struggle post op is real! I can't really offer any suggestions, but exercise and meds help me. Also losing weight makes me feel more upbeat and confident and gives me the drive to stick with it. Hang in there.

I just started going to a therapist . The mental struggle has been so hard. Many days filled with regret after the surgery. Trying to work through it all.

Were/are you taking an antidepressant? Might be lack of absorption?

Is it a general feeling of depression or something specific? Example: are you missing specific foods, are you having regrets about having surgery—why?, etc.

im asking because I’ve dealt with depression before in my life and can pinpoint the why for me—once I sought help with a therapist. Maybe some reflection can help you talk with your therapist more openly. Trust me when I tell you it took a bit before I could do that myself.

Be honest, be open and do what is best for you. Remember, you chose surgery for specific reasons too. Your health is important.

In my own case - Is that all THERE is? Feel like I'm getting nowhere, if I fall off the edge of the world? I won't even make the Evening News and this has been a SLOW NEWS DAY! Welcome to my Pity Party, may not have jackets but I do have Lovely Placemats in place.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.
