Default Anyone else "lost Interest" in UK life?

New to the site.(and ADDICTED) :scared: Just started the Immi process - but I've totally lost interest in my life here.
Every waking moment, I'm a) on this site! b) reading books on Aus c) dreaming about Aus d) decorating or declutterin so I'll get a better price for house e) E Mailing anyone who has any remote connection with Aus f) boring family about Aus g) making plans for the NW meet on Saturday h) mentally working out all the things I need to do i) deciding I'm not doing Christmas Shoppin this year everyone is gettin vouchers! - cos I'll be too busy doing all of the above!!! :scared:

I feel like my body has been hijacked and I feel constantly excited!!! One minute high as a kite....the next really down. ..thinking what if it doesnt work out!!!

Anyone else feel the same?

Must go - I'm tidying up. Estate agent coming round to value the house! Then a friend from Sydney ( I say friend - didn't know her til 2 weeks ago- but I do now! She's phonin me at 9am!)

SEE WOT I MEAN !!!!!! IT takes over yer life.

I was like that to start with but once the initial excitement wears off and you are just constantly waiting for news you'll soon find the UK interesting again!

lost interest ten years ago.
sold up everything. got a coulpe of suitcases and got out.
was difficult at first but learnt how to live a new life.
not bad at the age of 40.and only been out of the uk on holiday abroad before.
there is a future and a different life out there.
you just have to make a desicion and go for it.
would i go back?
not in a month of sundays.

the thing I resent about it is all the money you pay to apply for a visa and there is no consistency with waiting times, you're not allowed to contact anyone to find out what's going on. it's just the not knowing that drives me nuts. even if they said "you wont hear anything until november" at least that would be better than the constant hanging on and wondering what's happening.

Yep to every single thing above, only we're going to New Zealand. It consumes you doesn't it? One minute you're flying, the next you're worried sick. Every single thing you do is aimed on that goal. I wonder how many migrants get ill a month or so after they've landed and all the drama has stopped? It's got to be a shock to the system hasn't it!

Good luck with the estate agent.
