Hi Susan - thank you so much for your comments. I have been scouring the internet trying to find out why I am feeling so depressed, moody, teary, snappish, overwhelmed, angry and generally unable to cope. My children are 6 and 3 and it has been approx a month since I weaned our 3yo (I breastfed our 6yo for 2 years). So for the past 7 years I have been either pregnant or breastfeeding and for the most part having a wonderful life. Until tonight I have been perplexed about why my world feels as though it is suddenly falling apart around me. I am now quite sure this is attributable to weaning. The weaning happened to be quite speedy - almost overnight (both 3yo and I were comfortable with the decision) so the hormonal changes would be dramatic. I feel comfortable going to an acupuncturist or similar to help me through the next few months now that I know what the probable cause is. Your honesty has saved me many days/weeks/months of heartache. Blessings, Nicol x
