Mastitis, fever and backache

I ran a fever late yesterday evening. It's due to a blocked duct on my right breast. Also known as mastitis. Yeah, one of the woes of being a dedicated breastfeeding mom. I really want to wean that fler off, just that he doesnt seem to show any signs of wanting anything else. It's tiring, it's time-consuming, it's wearing me down. I know i'll miss the bond that only a breastfeeding mom can understand once i wean him off. But it has to be done one day, sooner or later. Just why not now. He's 14 months old already. I really need more ME ME ME time.

The blockage is still there, the pain is still there, the fler still wants to nurse every now and then. I slept for more than 10 hours straight, minus the times he wanted to nurse in between. Didnt get up to check for opps at all. Didnt even hear my phone beep notifying me of new opps. But i woke up with a backache this morning. Tiu, no fever, get backache, wtf. But this happens when i sleep too much. Sien.
