The Doc recons complete recovery in 6-12 months. Bloody scary as I've spoken to a few others that have it & they reckon it never goes away. A mate of ours swears she's crippled with it after two years. My initial thought was that she was playing upon it, now I'm not so sure lol. Some are back to normal in 6 weeks others 3-6 months I'm guessing it has something to do with how fit your body is prior to infection.

I should do an update really but in a nutshell the parents are slowly improving and the baby is at this point going to be returned to their care before July 2020. She [daughter] is expecting again due September 12th. Oxygen thief still using periodically. Older two girls really traumatised and refusing contact with parents as they feel as though they've been replaced with new children. Sad really but on the positive side I worked for an RSL Advocate recently & they have sorted out some mental health counseling for the girls, based on our son still being serving RAN personnel. Eldest GD diagnosed with PTSD. It's been a long three years lol.

No I've pulled the pin . At least with the Australia section. The forum has been in decline for years if the truth be known. (sometimes rather stimulating even back in 2008) Nothing or little to do with right/.left postings(as one peep suggested) as that was specific few postings, but easy for some to appropriate blame. Far fewer interested in immigrating from UK, besides I guess and forums are increasingly yesterday by the looks of things., along with so many other forms of social media to steal time.

I was relatively lucky that physically I was fairly healthy so it only lasted about 6 months. My very good friend is a diabetic and she was really crippled with painful joints for a good couple of years. Apparently once you have the virus it can flare up years later. At least according to the GP who I saw when I got sick.

I check in occasionally, but honestly the constant apparent agro between a certain few posters puts me right off bothering.
However my good news is that after 16 years on a temporary retirement visa I finally got PR a few weeks ago.

We will apply for citizenship the moment we are eligible. We have made Australia our home as have 2 of our children who followed us here and are now citizens.

Simple fix, and one in place on other forums for the same reason, people frustrated by political bickering..... Dedicated "Politics" subforum. Ergo a Moderation issue.

Try it and you'll get the Aus section back within 18 months.
