Angela Burzo got real on social media about how she "cannot hide the struggle that is breastfeeding".

A mom named Angela Burzo is making headlines for a painfully honest Instagram post about breastfeeding. The post has gone insanely viral, because it's just all too real. In her confession, Burzo explains that while she loves seeing "beautiful women in their beautiful nursing clothes smiling down at their babes as they lovingly look up back at them hand in hand while breastfeeding away," her reality is not in sync with that idyllic picture.

"This is real & as much as I want to stay strong and be the soldier I feel I can be I cannot hide the struggle that is BREASTFEEDING," Burzo wrote. "Whether she is not latching on properly, whether I am not producing enough milk to keep up with her demand, whether my nipples might not be adequate, whether we confused her with having to give her a bottle after pumping....whatever it may be it has been an emotional & painful struggle." (One transformed her struggled with hyperlactation syndrome into a way to donate hundreds of gallons of breast milk.)

Although Burzo took to Instagram a week ago, the Facebook page "Love What Matters" picked up her post yesterday, and so far, it has racked up more than 13,000 reactions and 3,000+ comments.

One commenter wrote, "Fed is best. ... You need to do what is best for you and your baby will be happier because of it as well," while another showed solidarity, writing, "Oh, Mama! Dry your tears and know it's going to be OK! Promise! I struggled with the exact same thing." Another even said she'd be happy to be there for Burzo if she needed someone to talk to, writing, "I'm so sorry you're experiencing this. I've been there and I know exactly how you're feeling. It's the worst! If you haven't seen a lactation consultant, PLEASE do, and also know, it WILL get better. Feel free to message me if you'd like to talk more!"

As devastating as Burzo's initial post was, it's incredibly heartening to see so many people come out to support the struggling mama. And props to Burzo for bravely sharing her experience, which is clearly one shared by many mothers. The more moms can support one another like this, the better off every mom will be, and and their L.O.s, too! (And if it doesn't work out? There are plenty of reasons it's totally OK not to breastfeed.)

My testimony on how i won £4,000,000 with the great help of Dr Davi powerful lottery spell: Call him +1 (206) 785-9633 It's unbelievable how fortunate I feel after finding your website. For the past 14 years, I have been looking for a way on how i will win lottery. Money situation was one of the biggest problem to me. I had a huge amount of debt and I didn't know what to do. Out of complete and total desperation, I contacted many of those so-called individuals who promised powerful magic to win the lottery, witchcraft or black magic. None of them worked and none were as wonderful, affectionate and warm as Dr Davi has been. He is definitely different from the others and I felt immediate hope and strength from hearing about the promises he had to offer. He carries an air of purity and divine strength that is as pure as fresh snow on the ground. I requested Dr Davi most powerful spells and I was relieved right away that I had someone to solve my problems for me. His spells worked wonders,i won (Four Million pounds) my money troubles resolved itself after winning the lottery. My life change over night,i now have my own house and two cars,also i am free from my debts. Dr Davi, I have no idea what I would have done without you being there to help me out.
