I Laugh, Cuz Otherwise I'd Cry

TREV: (to the cat and dog) Stop fighting! Quit it! If you knock over my coffee, I'm going to slap those full-body mustaches right off you!

So, so, so.

The epilepsy medication and Vitamin B6 seemed to be working. Not so painful, no vasospasms. But I was still using the shield, and the shield was causing irritation. Imagine rug burn and paper cuts on the tips of your nipples. Yeah. Believe it or not, still better than vasospasms.

"Time to take the shield off," said Dr. Boob. So I did, and I've been howling in pain every feeding since, and I couldn't sleep for vasospasms last night. In other words, nothing has changed and I'm on anti-seizure medication for no good reason.

Oh yeah, and I'm on anti-depressants now, too.

So... this is all getting hilariously pathetic. The all-natural-hippie-mom is evolving into the drugged up, formula feeding stress case. I just need the SUV and a latte to successfully transition from one cliche to the other.

I jest, I jest.

But still. This is depressing. Oh wait! I have a pill for that!

On the other hand, it sounds like you are being an active advocate for your own and your family's physical and psychological health. That is incredible work at a time when you are going through so many changes. You deserve kudos, woman.
