Well I guess I should begin by apologizing for the negativity of my last post. But in my defense, I started this blog as a sounding board for the part of me that sometimes needs to rant. Because if I don't, things get ugly.
So for all you folks out there who maybe don't want to read about hormones and female problems, I'll take this opportunity to suggest you skip this particular post.
Is there any one else out there that found their hormones forced them onto an emotional roller coaster when they were weaning?? I wasn't anticipating this. It's kind of like the way I felt with postpartum blues, only I don't have the excuse of the blues to explain my complete lack of mental stability. It's worse this week, because I'm about to get my period to boot. Usually I just feel irritable though, not so....emotional.
I can't stop crying. About everything. And I feel really anxious and worried about things, like in an irrational way. And I'm grouchy. I feel a little crazy.
Everyone tells me that I should give myself a break because I just started back to work and have a lot on my plate and all that, but I honestly don't think this has anything to do with being back at work. In fact, I feel better when I'm at work because I'm busy.
Anyway, just wondering if this is something other people have experienced? I'm still nursing a couple times a day, so we haven't completely weaned yet, and I'm worried this will get worse when we do.
On a completely unrelated note, I don't seem to have much time left for blogging with everything else that's going on these days, so I'm a little concerned about the future of this journal. We shall see.
