    I wouldn't jump to that conclusion too quickly....pregnancy brings with it many protective and repairitive benefits such as increased stem cells that stay with us for life.

    For me, oxytocin comes best in it's natural package. With children, that means within the relationship (just like with partners). In other words, if the relationship is bad, then there is a problem. I am speaking only for myself here. My children are my greatest blessings and my best teachers. They are also my main motivation. If I didn't have them, I know my drive to be healthy, stay healthy and live well would be reduced. If there are times when I start to see my children solely as stressors in my life, I know our relationship (and my mind/heart) needs work. Because I can be crushed by a bus tomorrow and the state of my hsCRP isn't going to matter to my children... but how our relationship was will. Not to say that I'm not working hard on inflammation, thyroid, etc. Just to say that right here, right now is just as important... I don't want to wait until I'm 'all better' to have love in the centre of my life.

    Please understand I wrote this tongue in cheek. My children are my life, and have been since the day my oldest was born. They are, by far, the main reason I am so focused on getting better. I need to fix me to become working template, so that I can heal them... I do still "reduce" on Tuesday and Thursday mornings though ;) It's the only time I really get to be inside my own head, and it's brand new this school year...

    I have been so up and down the past few years with mood & energy. I can't wait to live normally with my loved ones again. But in the meantime, I'm going to do everything in my power to love on them when I can, to explain to them that my moods are never their faults, to let them know it's not okay to yell even if I do it sometimes, yada yada.

    My family is my stress & my relaxation all in one.

    I met a woman last January who is in her 60s. She and her husband were career people and they had 3 children. She said her only regret was that she didn't have more kids.

    Our oldest son and his wife have 6 kids. They don't use birth control, but allow God to number their kids. I admire their attitude and faith. I had 5 and definitely knew when I was done. I was an emotional basket case!!!

    I still have dreams now about breastfeeding and my "boys" are in their 30s. It's a powerful biological force.

    Has anyone here taken oxytocin injections? It was also discussed in our call on methylation during the optimum reset. I met a body builder who took it and he says it really affected him.

    I was scared of breatsfeeding before it came into my life. I sais I will never breastfeed a child who can sit. I loved it and brastfed both till 1,5 years, no powdered milk, ever. My younger still comes to put his hands on my breasts and he comes to joke and touch them anytime I am naked. This is his ultimate consolation, when he is sick or sad he always comes to touch my breasts. I have not studied the oxytocin facts, but it is clear to me the baby gets it as well and it works by touch later when the brastfeeding is over.

    Dr. K. Is on board with the spray .. Also nipple stimulation and S/O .....

    Dr k. Also reminded us of pics of a mom breast feeding her baby in a rocking chair ..... And both are asleep! Incredible oxy for both going on there.

    I realized the injections aren't injections. They are syringe shaped tube that have a cream in them. This was a translation issue due to the fact I live on an island in Thailand.
