Re: Mother Having Health Issues
i experienced some of those symptoms. i felt dizzy frequently, especially toward the end of the first year when i had no "reserves" of fat left! i always felt insanely thirsty, but just got used to it. nursing made my OCD worse, which i read is due to the body releasing more oxytocin. maybe that's what's causing your nervousness?
to help with dizziness, i tried to eat an insanely healthy diet with no sugar and no simple carbs. it was easier said than done, but on days when i ate brown rice, tofu and spinach i felt 100% that on days when i ate a huge bowl of white noodles and a doughnut.
