It's just over a year since i started taking meds for PND.. Yes they are working. Stupidly about 2 months ago, I thought I was feeling great and stopped taking them.. Cold turkey.. Oh the sickness was awful. I didn't realise what was wrong. I was sick and dizzy and just in General felt awful. Then the lack of ability to cope sank in.. I knew I had to start taking them again. I'm back to normal again. Well, 'my' normal. I'm due to see my doctor again next month. Today, my daughter is almost 18 months old, but today I really finally feel I fell in love with her. She is so beautiful and perfect with the most chubbiest legs ever!! Oh god, I adore this child. I always loved her. But the love I felt today I never thought I was capable of. I am looking to the day where I won't need medication to cope. I'm afraid it the meds that are making me love my girl. I want to believe I love her on my own. Has anyone else ever felt like this?

Yes anxiety is so bad and yet it took all my confidence, I couldnt make a decission on my own but TG I got better it took time. Marion Keys the writer was talking about her depression on the radio on Saturday and she said some days she had to just get through one minute at a time. What helped her TV, just getting lost in a kids film. In the middle of the night when she couldnt sleep she baked (I never had that energy) a friend cleaned out her kitchen!! not me either, you need to find what is a distraction for you. Effexor eventually worked for me, it could take 8 weeks for higher dose to kick in, check with your GP.
Just keep telling yourself you will get better and dont forget to get some exercise every day, it really helps

Siobhan this is interesting. I went to a nutritionist and all my vitamins were extremely good besides my iron levels which I was able to rectify. My depression got so bad that i was actually nearly at the point of screaming all the time,im on medication now but yes I am so confused though regarding the nutrition end of things, why wasn't i ok, if all my vitamins were so good?? I might just go back to my nutritionist and see what her feedback is on this. at the time i didn't realise i was suffering i just thought this was how every other mother was feeling with their first baby.

Clair I know how you feel, men really find it hard to understand and really I dont think they can. Try to talk to him when you having a good day, tell him what helps you. He is worried and probably has nobody to turn to, men find it hard to share about private stuff. Have you taken him to the GP with you, this might be a help.
Do you know if you have a Support meeting in your area? It helps to hear other peoples stories.
