Mental Health and Wellness Venting



Recommended Posts

I made this so that people can vent about their mental health pre and post op. Meds and habits change and it can be really rough. I have Bipolar disorder and having surgery meant stopping my meds for over a month. Then we had to adjust meds so that I'd absorb them better. The in between time was really rough and I had some serious issues with my depression and containing my emotions. It's gotten better and I still have rough days, but venting really helps!

I hope I don’t have similar issues, but it’s likely that I will. I have moderate OCD with Intrusive Thoughts and ADHD. It can be very challenging. I can deal mostly with the OCD and ADHD symptoms (not being treated for the ADHD currently because the meds and my weight ultimately gave me hypertension)...but I really can’t handle the Intrusive Thoughts. They overrun my life and I’m truly miserable without my Abilify.

I would say your best bet is to talk to your psychiatrist and discuss the surgery and how meds will work afterwards. That way you know what could possibly happen.
