I started reading the thread. 16 days until things really turned around? WOW! I actually have a general amino acid powder supplement in my cupboards. I'm taking some before bed tonight!
I don't have health insurance, and can't afford a lot of specialized testing. So, this is a link to the supplement I have on hand. Can you take a look and see how it seems to you? I know it obviously isn't as good as something costumized, but is there anything obviously bad about it? <link>http://www.nutramed.com/alphaaax/aaxingredients.htm
I have started on magnesium glyconate and B complex. I'm going to take my clo and those amino acids, then try for sleep.
I hope this helps. My functionality is...let's just say I feel really bad for my kid right now. And, since I'm not up to doing much, he responds by nursing. And nursing. And nursing. Hours and hours while i try to sleep. hours and hours split throughout our mutually awake hours. My boobs are getting really, really sore, and it is obviously an additional load on my body.
Even though he is needing more time with me than he has been getting, I am sending him off with his dad for a week starting Saturday. Hopefully, with the wonderful advice I'm getting here and my other research, I'll manage to have myself in somewhat better shape by then. I know true healing is a long, long road, but seeing progress would be nice.
