It's lovely that her dh thinks she works hard. It would be nice if the...

Minimalist here... Do you ever really NEED a band-aid, immediately? I mean, if I cut is bad enough that it must be bandaged you probably need a proper bandage and not a little band-aid. And if it's small enough that you can get away with using a band-aid, you could also get away with it be uncovered for a few hours until you get back home. We do take a diaper bag with a change of clothes everywhere we go, but that's because my son gets carsick

My first did not comfort nurse, at all, for quite awhile (at least 6 months? Maybe longer? I don't remember). To be fair, I had overactive letdown, so nursing on his part WASN'T comforting so much as a frantic race to avoid drowning... He's two, and nursing right now : He also nursed through my pregnancy with his brother, during which there were at least two months of no milk at all. So it did become about more than just food, eventually.
I understand the appeal of fasting in this situation- it takes the thinking out of it. Is there another way you could simplify your diet? Maybe come up with 2-3 meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that you *know* are safe, easy to make, and portable, and just use those when you don't have the time/energy/brainpower to think about what you're eating?
The thoughts themselves don't serve as a giant red flag for me, but the 'anxiety in the pit of your stomach' frequently does. The fact that it's decreasing is promising, though. I think that it's reasonable to give the supplements and such more time and see if they continue to help (any meds will likely take awhile to kick in anyway). In short, I think you should definitely be treating your anxiety/depression SOMEhow,and meds are certainly one route you could try,...
I have a large yard, in Vermont. We need to start growing some of our own food. I have NO idea where to start. What should I read? P.S. I kill houseplants with alarming regularity.
Oh, I had major OAL too! But around 3 months, that and the leaking did settle down. Has something to do with the switch to demand-driven rather than hormone-driven supply.
