Ok, fb trolls, I have a bfucking serious question to ask here and I would like it not to get drowned in all the bs.
I know others have posted about there being a connection between weaning and depression, but has anyone experienced something closer to anxiety than depression with weaning? I think ds is starting to slowly wean, he only nurses 3 or 4 times a day, which I figure is around 16 to 18 oz of bm a day. Just a month or so ago he was getting over 30 oz a day( I come to these figured based off what I pump and what he was getting a daycare).
I don't feel like I am depressed at all, I'm actually pretty good with life right now. I find myself feeling anxious pretty often without there really being a reason why. I notice that it is the worst at night, right before I go to bed. There is really nothing specific I feel anxious about, I just start feeling very nervous, fidgety and sometimes my heart feels like it's racing. Has anyone else experienced this?
Also, I want to make an appointment to talk about this, but would I called my vag dr or my family dr or someone else? We have moved since I've last been to a family dr and it would be with someone new I didn't know. My insurance company has a mental health hotline that you can call that will help you get in connect with someone, so I wonder if that would be a better option.
I had some counseling for anxiety and other issues years ago and I have tried some of the relaxation exercise that I learned, but they really haven't helped. I have also taken Zoloft in the past and had a horrible experience with it, so I am really nervous about being prescribed anything. I do believe in the right drugs for the right person thing, but my Zoloft experience was so bad I am scared.
Sorry, this was a book. I appreciate any advice or suggestions.
