~A LITTLE INFO ABOUT ME FIRST!! I am 19 years old and have a 2 year old son. My husband and i have been married for one year now, and are still learning how to live with each other! I am finishing prereq classes right now and will be starting my nursing program in August! (yay)
~But about 2 months ago, i gradually started weaning my son from nursing. I started pretty slow, taking away one feeding at a time. And now, we are down to just about no nursing at all (maybe one time early in the morning to go back to sleep, MAYBE) And this whole week, i have been feeling like everything BUT myself. I have had HORriBLE mood swings, and major irritability, insomnia, sadness and tearfullness for no reason, headaches, decreased appetite, and feelings of depression and anger (im very short with my son when he does something wrong, [and then i feel guilty], and short with my husband as well). I have read online about post-weaning depression (which i didnt even know of such thing before) and it seems i fit the criteria. I HAtE feeling like this, and havent felt this way since i was a young teenager. So i guess i just wanted advice from others mothers who have maybe gone through this as well, or knows someone who has. How long will this last??????
