I thought that my meds were kicking in. I was feeling better able to cope. Then the last say 3 days I am a wreck again. Thinking that Hope would be better off without me, that she diserves a more loving mommy. that I dont love her enough. I feel like the affection I show her is fake like I am pretending to love her.

I am a mess

How long have you been on the meds? It could be that either you just need more time (usually a month or so) or you need a higher dose. If it continues talk to your dr and tell them how you feel. Hormones are such a pain.

I think deep down he knows that you can just shut it off. I think he is struggling cause he wants to help/fix it and cant. Its sweet.
