I am going to attempt not to go on a "pity me" rant here but I must admit it I decided to write this as a way of venting but there again I'm not sure if I'm screaming into a void or if anyone is really listening. If so I hope you have to time to listen to me whine because there's more to it then just that. There's something for you.
My wife and I are in a spot of bother. Nothing that can't be worked out its just the working out that is such a drain on our time, money and patience it's slowly driving us mad. For those of you who know My wife and I met each other here on RT, got together, got married and one of us had to move counties to do it. It was difficult, expensive, time consuming, stressful and all very dramatic. That was over a year and a half of calls, talks, meeting and money. But the worst was the god awful waiting.
But that's all done now, has been for a while (thank God). But none the less we are feeling the bitter effects still. After spending a year and a half unemployed (can't work during immigration) my wife was able to get a job. Without going into details its shit. Shit pay, shit hours and shit bosses. Never the less she carries on because we need the money and I thank her for her effort.
But during the time while she was going through immigration she was experiencing health issue, issues that persist today. Unable to see a doctor until we got her insurance she had to suffer the pain and the worry of not knowing what. And even now after seeing three doctors and getting a half a million tests done we still don't have the whole picture. But we know about a bunch of other health issues she has that are not linked to what we were looking for (Oh joy).
Along with that we are currently having to start the process of moving. We live with my father who was helping us while we were going through immigration. And he has helped us a great deal but it appears we've wore out our credit with him and we have until February to move out. He's not signing the next years lease and hes moving in with his new girlfriend (We don't like her). Problem is all the places in my city are either out of my price range, to shitty or to far.
With the stress of looking for a place we landed on moving into my mother's old place that she needs sublet but that will only get us till May. We are currently working on making some deals but who knows.
But lets not forget Christmas! Everyone love Christmas! I suppose in the last few years the holiday has lost it's luster with me (Growing up sucks). You see the thing is when you come from a large/divorced/spread out family getting together over the holidays is more then a hassle. Its a major psychotic nightmare. No one can settle on a date partly because some of us don't even talk to each other (Some of us hate each other) but we all fall in line because in the end it's for the kids. The kids presents are still under the tree in my apartment my family can pick them up when they have time because I've run out.
My dad was also our only way of getting around because what was going to be my car got totaled by my mother and at this moment even if I did have one I can't afford it. So we are stuck at home most of the time getting to a fro work is stressful enough. Couple that with it being winter in Winnipeg and some of you might know that a hell in its own right.
But there was hope. My wife and I settled on a gift for each other and we both invested in and new Xbox one terabyte with fallout 4 combo... The fucking thing broke inside of 2 weeks.... I go to get it fixed and I have to call Microsoft for a new power brick. I don't want to do that because that might not even be a problem. I can't get it replaced because they are sold out right now. I have to go tomorrow to another mall and get a whole new deal and in the process lose my and my wives saves.
It was the cherry on top of a 30 layer cake of shit we have to deal with. Couple that with the little day to day things you have to deal with that just add to your frustration that aren't worth mentioning and you have one pissed off household.
Tonight is my staff party at work and drinks are free. You'd better believe I'm going to be there.
But you know what? All of this. All these things I've mentioned all of this shit is all due to me simply being a person on this earth. Millions of other people would no doubt love to have the issues I do and would trade it all to be in my place. I'm and intelligent person who understands this so I ask to anyone who is reading this because it feels good to talk I just want to ask how you are? How you've been doing? What you've been up to? Are there problems? Can I help? Do you want to talk?
I'm not being sarcastic or condescending. I'm honestly curious, because we all have problems and I know from experience it better to stand up and try and help those that need it rather then sit and stew in bitterness and hatred.
Seriously drop me a line, I'll reply.
Oh and Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
