I read parenting magazine every month and always get lots of good ideas and advice, this moth there was an article about breast feeding called ( How moms really feel about breastfeeding) There were perspectives from two sides, I loved it, and I hated it, On the one side mothers enjoyed breastfeeding, on the other the mothers hated it, finding it difficult, painfull, and extreamly stressfull because of it.
I was upset to see only the two sides making me feel even more incompatent and alone in my past situation, my daughter now being three.
My situation was this, I was sexually abused as a child, during the developing stages mostly, I became very self concuse and ashamed of my body, many years later thinking I was over it, the feelings came washing back over me when I would bring my child to my chest, I became very deppressed and even had anxiety attacks every time she would need to be feeded. Am I alone?
