cdent Posted March 25, 2015 Share Posted March 25, 2015 I'm only on day 3 of my first Whole30 and I'm really feeling terrible! I have read that this is normal. However, I am concerned. I understand that my body is beginning a type of detox from processed foods. I have a 9 month old very active daughter and to be honest, I feel awful and like a terrible parent. Right now I'm forcing her to sit on the floor of our kitchen in the Bumbo while I sit next to her on the floor and type this and eat a microwaved sweet potato with coconut oil and unsweetened coconut flakes (after having my husband run to the kitchen while I was still in bed this morning and get me some strawberries, macadamia nuts, and a hard boiled egg because I thought I was going to pass out). My daughter is crying because I'm not holding her or paying attention to her and I literally feel like I'm in my own personal hell. I already called my husband crying because I thought I was going to drop her while I was taking her upstairs. So while I understand that this is what I signed up for...the physical manifestations are hitting me so hard and I'm feeling like it is not worth it seeing as how I've basically ignored my baby this morning and am feeling fairly incapable of taking care of the both of us. Also, I'm still breastfeeding and absolutely do not want the Whole30 to affect that (it hasn't so far). Anybody care to wager as I close my computer and try to calm my screaming child without have a complete meltdown myself? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
