but i feel i need something VERY powerful. i have suicidal thoughts everyday, sometimes all day. the only problem with placenta consumption for me is religious. i *cannot* consume blood. is it possible to bleed my already frozen 6 mo placenta? how would i do it? also, my placenta was really funky, it was breaking apart in chunks after i birthed it. i have my 2.5 yo dd's placenta in the freezer too, that one is in perfect health. should/could i use that one instead? please help me!
my kids need me, they can't grow up without a mom.
Can you ask for and be given forgiveness for breaking a tenant of your religion? Also, the placenta came from your body, and you can consider it still to BE part of your body . . . you swallow your spit all the time, and your spit always has cheek cells in it (which contain blood). Can you go to the source of that rule and read it over again and think?
I really don't want to rationalize you breaking a rule, but if you're verging on PPP, you need to do something for yourself . . . and those placentas, in my opinion, are part of God's gift and Plan. How wonderful and amazing He is to have provided women with this perfect medicine!
I know that there are many rules in many religions. Here are some laws from the Bible that don't necessarily make sense to follow now:http://biblebabble.curbjaw.com/laws.htm
Please don't do anything to harm yourself! Please check in on this thread and make another comment SOON to let me know you're still with us!
BESIDES, if you're feeling that terrible, PLEASE go get help. You can call someone to pick up the kids, ask someone to drive you somewhere, or check yourself into a hospital. PLEASE don't suffer through this alone.
