Hi All, Here is my question for everyone... Mom's and dad's

we are 6 months in to pumping and I am still quite struggling emotionally...

I find myself falling into a pattern of being sad and angry when blood sugars are bad,

then being a bit more happy and in a good mood when blood sugars are good.

I also tend to be a bit of a controlling personality, and a scientist, so I hope that with knowledge I will do a better job of taking care of her. Our cde told me today I need to chill out a bit, and I guess she is right...

I try not to let my 11 year old see that, because i am learning it's a war and not just a battle,

how do you deal with your emotions? yet keep them in check when the going gets rough??

Thanks, Natalie

Yes look what I gave her. I gave her advice, I gave her my opinion and I gave her encouragement. I also defended her for not wanting to express her emotions in front of her child and defended my belief on this. Unfortunately difference in opinions can cause people to defend their beliefs.

No need to scould people for something that took place 2 weeks ago and apparently everyone else moved on. Actually no need to scould people period.

Acutally I am not going to get into a contest with you as you did with the other mother on this site. You do whatever you feel is right in the end you are the one that has to live with what you did or did not do. Have a wonderfully delightful day!
