After speaking with a lactation consultant, it appears this is what I have! And why I have had so much difficulty with breast feeding my kids and keeping my supply up. I wish I had learned this ages ago It also explains why I am doing better with 'switch nursing' and having Killian nurse 5-8 minutes a side. We discussed that my second let down probably takes longer, so the feeling lasts longer. By switching sides it allows the let down to happen faster and decreases the amount of time for the hormones to be out of whack.
I don't feel the sadness. I get anxiety, like I just HAVE to stop feeding ASAP. This is the feeling I get when they are comfort nursing and when I am pumping. So, that is why pumping one side and feeding on the other side at the same time works better for me, the let down happens right away.
It is SUCH a relief to know I am not crazy ad that I am not the only woman out there that doesn't really enjoy some parts of breast feeding

Oh it talked about the food connection and let down. It is because food is associated with happy thoughts or something like that.
Some things I have already noticed, if I distract myself it is not as bad. I am so happy I found this out. It makes me wonder about some of the women that really just hate breastfeeding, if they maybe have this too.
