i used to be spineless, now i'm just spleenless! from an accident almost 10 years ago i lost my spleen. doctors never warned me of side effects. these days i notice i have no joy, all the things i loved are void of enjoyment. i am very moody, been diagnosed as bipolar but all the meds do nothing. i have researched to no avail why since my splenectomy a light has gone out. i used to be different, had the rise and fall of everyman but i feel left out.the fatigue and lack of drive have me jumping from job to job and before my recent marriage, relationship to relationship. i am worried that my wife will suffer from my lack of joy or optimism. i feel very indifferent and lifeless. i have tried all angles of mental health help but it seems more related to the spleen removal. no sob story, i just need others to be candid if this seems spleen related.
thanx for your ear.
