Jobseekers Allowance from government and brought my eligibility to work documents to interview, it was a big, and horrific, shock.Have found it hard to tell people, since of course everything seemed to be working out.

As usual, it seems, in my life m it hasn't. Last few days just been in bed, thought - I can't do this anymore, can't do more than I have done, can't cope.

Today has been spent in tears after getting out of bed at 3 pm. So much humiliation,sadness, anxiety- and I feel so alone. Trying to find reasons to go on and believe in anything, much less myself.

So sorry Cindy, have been thinking about you and hoping all went well. Please remember, this is not your fault! It is a silly paperwork issue. Try to relax in the fact that this is in someone else's hands now - call if you can to check on it, but

otherwise I see no reason to blame yourself for the delay. They still want you, and you were transparent and brought all the necessary documents. Someone else must have made a mistake, not you. πŸ’–πŸ’•β˜‰

Told M about job. Think I had built it up too much to myself, forgotten that he is very English (ie doesn't do excitement), and my period had started so feeling grumpy anyway. It was fine in end
Cindy M
01 Jul 2017 ·

but I need to remember that my expectations are just that - it doesn't mean that if people don't measure up to them, the fault is with them. I know he's happy for me, and he reminded me that he doesn't find it easy to say things. I've lived in UK

over 20 years, and I was never the best American to begin with, and probably some of what I did have has been rubbed off, but I guess I was looking for a hug or excitement - or something.

Lydia R
01 Jul 2017 ·

Aww I'm sorry. I hate when people don't react the way I imagine them, but there's not much we can do. It's awesome you got the job and everyone here is so happy for you. And I bet he is, too. In his stoic English way. :)

He is the Marge to my Homer. As Homer sometimes has to say to Marge, 'I said WOO. HOO. Marge' Need to remember who each of us is, and not wish for something he can't give - especially when he gives me so much in other ways (non material!)

Lydia R
01 Jul 2017 ·

Oops, read the rest of your comments just now, but I still think my comment fits rather well. I'd have hugged you for sure, that's the least one can do. But I hope you're not too disappointed.

Cindy M
01 Jul 2017 ·

Your comment really does fit, Ly R - I find that if I acknowledge my feeling, whatever it is, that helps me to begin to deal with. So yeah, it was disappointing initially but I have reflected on it and am okay. He's really lovely and caring. But I am

Hmm that must be a bit painful. But good on you that you were able to reflect on it as well. Sometimes people just react different then you want to. But I'm sure he's very happy for you just like us.
