Quick post

Sorry for not posting lately but I have been sick. I have a horrible head cold and have felt like just sleeping and resting and knitting (of course). I hope you are all well and doing okay. Other than being sick I have been going really well back on my medication (unfortunately). I was so hoping to come off it to have a baby but as soon as the lithium, well yeah. I crashed. I had to face the fact I will most likely never have a baby. I also found out my psychiatrist has changed my diagnosis from borderline personality disorder to complex PTSD and the bipolar of course. I also found out two days ago that both my brothers suffer from it too. My doc also told me that I was on the more severe range of mental illness. What a lovely thing to hear. NOT! Anyway, I am going to hibernate again. Be well :-)

Getting there

I am finally starting to feel a little better after having my lithium and ability increased. Yesterday I went home on leave for six hours and today I am going home for eight hours, which I am looking forward to. I can't wait to see Dov. I miss him so much while I am in here it's just not funny. It really has given me some perspective on our relationship and I see some of the things I was worried about seem so small now that we have been apart. My mum said that it doesn't matter really in the grand scheme of things because if you are together, you love each other and you can let the small things go, at least you aren't alone and you have each other.  I totally agree.

In other news I am making a new pair of wrist warmers for a friend of mine and a pair for myself. I am also knitting a blanket out of all my spare balls of yarn. It looks great already. Will post some pics later if I remember. Hopefully I will. Anyway must run, it's almost breakfast here and I need a cup of tea!
