Thanks so much for the responses ladies. It sounds like you really understand. It's just so hard to know what's normal at this stage. Part of me knows it would be best and healthiest to not drink and take Valium to take the edge off and to sleep, but the other part can't imagine how anyone can just process all this raw emotions in one go, particularly at night, without some help.
I think as long as I'm honest with the psych about everything she can tell me if it's a problem.
Interesting that you didn't drink for a week, Holly. I didn't either. It was like my brain wasn't ready to admit that I wasn't pregnant anymore, so I kept to the pregnancy diet.
