The ups and downs of my mood are driving me crazy and I really just don't know what to do. I have limited patience with my almost-3 yo, I snap at my dh, I really want to just eat whipped cream and cry. The fact is, my life is wonderful- my dh is pretty great, my dd is amazing, we live comfortably in a nice house/neighborhood. If I wasn't me, I'd probably be jealous! But some days I still just feel awful-- I don't feel like playing with my dd, who then pesters me all day (a totally natural response, I know), and I fill my head with negative thoughts and all but talk myself into believing that my dh and I should split. I guess I just don't know how to get myself out of this- my life rocks and I really want to enjoy it. I think I tend to blame it on becoming a sahm and missing the friendshwip and satisfaction I got from work- but my dh thinks it's hormones and says I've always been this way.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I know exercise would help but I Do. Not. Want. To. Are there certain vitamins that might help? Any other ideas? I'm going to discuss it with my Dr., but my appt. isn't for another two weeks, and I feel crappy NOW. Oh-- and I'm still breasfeeding, so any vits or herbs would have to be safe. Thanks.
