weaning from nursing and severe panic attacks???
« on: September 30, 2013, 09:25:04 AM »
good morning

I am completely having a meltdown. My heart is pounding I'm scared I'm going to die and my heart is going to explode.
I started weaning my daughter from nursing about 2 months ago the last month  completely on formula. (I'm 6 months postpartum)
Ever since I began weaning I am having crazy panic attacks and agoraphobia.
Anxiety and panic is NOT new to me at all, 6 years ago I suffered from this horrible disorder. I had therapy and Xanax (as needed) and within two years fully recovered. I went to stores by myself, vacations, you name it I felt normal and was doing it.
Now its back with a vengeance. I feel completely lost and scared, and almost feel like this is new to me but its not :-(

when my daughter was born I became a stay at home mom to my daughters, I love it but for some reason I feel like it makes me worse?
or that's just my negative thinking kicking in
please help[

any advice or anyone else experience this while weaning?
thank you for listening

Not sure if any of these topics will be of any help to you. They are old posts from the forum here. I'm male. We don't really know about these things.  :laugh3:

I weaned my daughter about 3 months ago. When you're weaning your hormones are up and down and your body is trying to "normal" itself back out ... are you on any meds? If not, I would highly suggest starting something. I wouldn't have gotten through pregnancy/post partum without Zoloft.

However, I'm now on my 4th cycle since I weaned and it's not going very well :-(
