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?

Hi Joanne, I too fell in love with my little boy recently, he is 14 months old, i have been on lexapro 11 months now. I dont believe it is the meds talking. It is your heart, hormones are probaly balancing out, the cloud is lifted and we can see what we truly have, unique and beautiful babies. Dont be so hard on yourself, im so happy for you, the feeling is amazing - dont live in the regret of 'the months i missed of feeling this love' just be happy to have this warm feeling in your heart xx
