Default 9 years this week.

Sometime this week will mark 9 years since arriving in Canada for the first time, I know it was labor day week, just can't remember the exact day. Moved here cause of a marriage, no more marriage and would never move again for anyone.

For the most part I have adapted, have never found the same level of success or stability here as I had in the US, but I no longer hate being here which I did for the first year, that first year I wanted nothing more then to just leave and never look back, but Canada has grown on me, and I have spent more of my adult life (since turning 18) in Canada so its become more home then home is now...lol

You seem fairly up beat on the whole thing bearing in mind you have been through the mill so to speak. I have noticed your trouble on here regards work and your mental health and so its great to see you are optomistic

Yes, like Mickey I too think you are doing bloody well I don't know if I were going through the mill with my emotions and marriage I would be able to do it in a country that I didn't really feel a sense of belonging in. The strain must have been incredible. I do hope that coming up for your decade things start to sort themselves out for you and the future becomes a positive and stable place. Very best wishes.
