it was really helpfull to read all these comments. I weaned my 16 month old 4 weeks ago and have been feeling depressed and withdrawn periodically ever since - not wanting to see people and hide in a corner. Very unlike me. I also have a 3,5 and 7 year old and have been either breastfeeding and/or pregnant for the last 7 years and 9 months so maybe this has something to do with the depression. It is really hard to explain how I feel to my fabulous husband as he just thinks it will pass and I shouldn't worry. Should I see my GP or just wait a bit longer. Sometimes I feel like my normal happy self but around mid-cycle and period time I feel awful. Any suggestions?
