Down Days

I've been sort of compromised emotionally for the past four days. My varicose veins are also starting to hurt at times, the way they did during the pregnancy. This would be earlier than usual for my cycle to start up again, since Anna is still nursing through the night and every few hours during the day. But I know every pregnancy can be different.

I actually looked up Post-Partum Depression just out of curiosity. It can start any time during the first year after birth, and can manifest as anxiety, irritability, or depression. Interesting. I'll be keeping a sharp eye on these down days.

Oh Pam, so sorry to hear that you are feeling down. Feel free to drop me a line if you need a friendly ear.

Girlfriend, you most likely have the honor of not only dealing with post partum effects, but also perimenopausal symptoms -- you are a lucky one!

Evening Primrose Oil might be helpful... look it up!

Hi Pam. I just wanted to thank you for recommending my blog, Love Lasts a Lifetime. I appreciate that.

I'm sorry you are feeling down. I've prayed for you.
