I just spent over an hour responding to a post about breastfeeding and tumblr seems to have eaten it. Jerks. Apparently I have a lot of feels about feeding a small human.

My heart hurts for Brad. One of his friends has been MIA for about a year and a half and we knew that things probably weren’t going well but his phone was disconnected and he wasn’t responding to Facebook messages. This person has manic depression, bipolar disorder and a traumatic brain injury from a motorcycle accident. His life is also filled with exploitive and manipulative people (including his mom and sister) who take advantage of him. He understandably has trust issues and takes the “Respect” thing really seriously so Brad assumed that he had somehow, unknowingly, offended his friend and he would eventually turn up again. Well, today Brad got a call from his friend’s dad who confided in Brad that he was worried for the friend’s life because he has now become addicted to opiates and likely other drugs. Brad is riddled with guilt but there’s not much else he could have done; he tried to contact his friend through all possible channels and even stopped by his house a few when it was obvious he was home.

I’ve been away from Finley since 2:00pm and it is the single longest time we’ve ever been apart. My boobs are a little engorged but not nearly as bad as I thought they would be and there was no leakage. I volunteered at the Basilica Block Party so I could see Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. The show was good but they’re really missing something without Jade. Finley and Brad had fun and they even went out to dinner. Maybe letting other people watch your babies sometimes isn’t so bad.

I’m really disappointed that I got my period back yesterday considering we’re still nursing at least 10 times a day AND almost all night AND bed sharing. While I know there are some unlucky souls that get theirs back almost immediately despite breastfeeding and I should consider myself lucky that I went without it for 12.5 months, it still really sucks.

Pretty sure I received generic mom cut #4 and not what I asked for but I’m trying to reserve judgement until it’s styled normally. Trying and failing.
