    Hi Everyone, 

    Just wanted to let you know I'm heading into hospital on Tuesday. It's just for a medication change, so I'm hopeful that this will go smoothly. I should only be in for a week. I may have limited time to respond to posts during this period. On the other hand I may end up bored, and missing you all!!

    I will try to keep in touch as often as I can. I'll also try to keep you updated on my progress. If nothing else I'm looking forward to a week without housework;)

    I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. You can certainly tell that Spring is just around the corner.

    Dear Amber

    I wish you all the very best on your stay in hospital.  Hope the meds change won't affect you too much.  Rest and take a break.

    Yep, that's the good bit - no cooking dinner!!!

    Thinking of you; sending you a hug and a bunch of "cyber flowers"

    Hi Amber

    Thanks for letting us know.  We sure will miss you and hope all goes well.  

    I love reading your replies to other posters.  Your advice is always full of wisdom and you show so such caring for people in need.  

    In one of your threads, you said your partner was away for work.  Is he back home now providing you with support?

    Dear Amber

    As so many others have responded to you along the same lines, I would just like to wish you all the best for the coming week.  It's the best place to be for this kind of easing off meds, the flush out period and then the intro of news ones.

    I have no doubt you'll be well cared for.

    We however WILL miss you here - you're a wonderful member of this community and if you are bored, it will be awesome to hear from you to just say "hi".   Look after yourself though;  and the rest of us will carry the load while you're away.

    Kind regards

    Neil

    dear Amber, we all want to wish you the very best, and don't worry there will be plenty of posts for you to catch up with, but at the moment that's not important, it's your new medication and adjusting to it, and cross fingers it will help so much more. L Geoff. x

    Hi  Amber, I have noticed the others here are calling you that, so I hope you don't mind if I do too.

    I wish you all the best for your time in hospital, and hope the new medication will make a huge difference to you and your partner.

    I too am very thankful for your insight, wisdom and caring that you share in your posts.

    Take care and wishing you all the very best.

    TLC from Dools.

    Hi Amber,

    I hope all goes well for you in hospital for your med change.  I think you are very courageous in the way that you are challenging your BPD.  I also value your heartfelt and caring advice that you provide.

    My very best thoughts and wishes are with you. 

    Take care x

    Hi Everyone,

    Thank you for your warm words and well wishes. I'm happy to say I'm finally back home. Everything went well with the medication change. I only experienced a few side effects, and these are starting to settle now. Fortunately my mood has remained stable.

    I'm looking forward to catching up on all the discussions and recent threads on the forums. Bare with me while I catch up:)

    Hope that you are all well.
