Yes, it has been a while.
I have gotten lazy/behind in my posting here, and l shouldn’t have, because posting may have helped me out. I’m feeling pretty down lately, and I just don’t know why.
A quick update: I think I am about 7kg less than I was post op, and have moved on from a liquid diet to a puréed diet. Kind of as interesting as the liquid diet, but way more gross. But it doesn’t bother me so much, I don’t have much of an appetite.
Which brings me to my next confession – I haven’t been keeping track of the protein – and clearly not having enough. I’ve even slacked on taking my supplements – aside from the fact they are chewable and DISGUSTING, I don’t even know why I have fallen off of the wagon only 3 weeks out.
I also have a big, sore lump of an area underneath my scars where my stomach used to be… I can’t help but think its a hernia. God I hope not.
I have just been so down lately, life just seems overwhelming. My GP was worried how my mental health would fare post surgery. I also wonder how much of my antidepressants I absorb now.
Anyways, it feels like I have a big black cloud hanging over me.
Baby steps. My 3 goals for the week to turn things around are:
1. Take my supplements EVERY DAY.
2. Meet my 60g protein requirement EVERY DAY.
3. Post here at least EVERY SECOND DAY. I need to sound whatever is going on out.
