Experience

I’ve had the implant for Two years now. I didn’t really notice any severe symptoms at first, but after awhile I had realized I was getting worse mentally. I got it around age 17. L Being a teenager I thought it was just be being a teen, but I had started to get extremely depressive, suicidal even, severe mood swings, not be able to think clearly. It was like I did a complete 180. I never had suicidal thoughts before the implant, and I started to develop severe self esteem issues which I never even thought of before. I’m going to get it removed next month, I hope I’m able to revert back to my old self soon! Be warned, especially if you have prior mental illness issues.
