Re: feeling depressed
I haven't weaned yet but we have definitely cut back on nursing and my supply has changed some as a result of that. Two weekends ago I had a rough time with that and was feeling just awful... anxious and crying a LOT. I have a history of depression, but hadn't had trouble with it in a while, so those depression-like feelings really scared me. My doctor shared that hormonal changes can feel exactly like depression, and now 2 weeks later my hormones have stabilized quite a bit and I feel tons better. Is there any way you can do some form of exercise to help feel better? I re-opened my ymca membership as a tool to help me feel better. Hang in there, we're all here for you!
