Really good news about the job and I'm sure you'll have no problem with the test. Huge sympathies 're your wife but fingers crossed she keeps improving and you're able to either find someone to be with her or she improves enough that you are comfortable leaving her.

Luckily the company has been understanding. I've only missed 2 days, and I am doing my best to not miss any shifts, but things are not predictable at the moment but all I can do is my best.

I was just thinking that we hadn't heard from you for a while. I'm really pleased you got a new job that you're going to enjoy. Being satisfied at work goes a very long way toward making your life easier.

Sorry to hear that your lovely wife has not been well. I do hope that she's back to better health soon.

Ahhhh fantastic that you have another job, and in your preferred field! That is really great.

I echo what everyone else has said about your inner strength, being able to juggle all that is really a testament.

We are all rooting for you, please keep us updated on your progress!

I do hope your wife feels more even very soon Jsmth321. Very tough that she's had this episode right now.

I am beyond pleased for you on the move and job front. Despite all, your strength & determination has carried you through.

You're amazing and so is your wife.

JS you're showing how strong you can be!

Congrats on everything. We're all routing for you and I think I can safely say we genuinely care. We're a bunch of Brits that have become your Canadian family

Take care and please keep us updated.

I made sure 2017 was going to be my year to turn the negatives in to positives. Sounds like you're doing the same

Sending hugs from Ontario.

Thanks all. For the most part the job has been not bad. All but 1 person have been pleasant to work with.

I am 2nd oldest in the employee group, others are all 18 to 23 age range.

Aside from that one person who was in diapers when I started ramp work in 1998, its been good.

Doing a lot better then I thought I would getting up at 230am...lol

Wife is doing better but not 100 percent yet.

Still playing referee of sorts as well. Lol

But its getting better each day so nothing to worry about at this point and things are looking fairly good at the moment.

Next week I should know if I am accepted into the DBT/ borderline study at a university.
