I don't think that i have ever experienced stress like that which occurs when i am holding a crying baby who will not stop. Maybe its because i am usually able to control my situation, or maybe because i have not felt the usual instant bonding with my babies that others feel - but i found the feelings that welled up in me of panic, of anger, of violence even, very upsetting. I have a high stress job usually and so never thought that this would happen to me. Suddenly In this situation my usual 'mild mannered janitor' character changed into a new and frightening 'hong kong fooey'. Has anyone else experienced this? I cannot be the only one. But the only things i see written are how the birth of children was the most wonderful experience and how it 'Changed my life forever'. No-one seems to mention the stress. Is there some kind of conspiracy of silence, or maybe i'm just very unusual...
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
