Re: Child leaving for overseas studies, how do you cope?

I had experienced hot flush more than 8 yrs ago. It lasted almost a year. Along with other menopausal symptoms like insomnia, lethargy, mood changes etc. I went to see a gynae when I experienced my recent panic attacks and he said it's more likely depression and not menopause.

Hi janet88 i will check the medicine when I reach home. I wish your son 平平安安for the operation. I am sure the army will adjust his vocation according to his physical condition. Nowasdays I find they are more careful. So don't worry.

Re: Child leaving for overseas studies, how do you cope?

Hi Chief my husband did propose me staying a little longer with my son over there but that was before the diagnosis. At this stage I am not sure if I can stay there alone while my son goes for classes. I may in future though. Thanks for your suggestion.
