It is snowing in Canada , and everyone is wearing white tooks!
We used to joke as kids, saying if heaven falls down we will all be wearing blue tooks.
I posted because I am sure there is many like me, who immigrated and never thought they would ever need counselling or that there health would be affected by the process..but I've learned that it can..Anyone who immigrates , families , kids etc should receive counselling..it should be mandatory by the goverment..to secure a safe transition..problem is that very little immigrants can Afford help.
Even a Perfect healthy person in every way , can find it hard to adjust to a new country, new food, new cultures, new laws, new school sytems..etc.etc.
Everybody in the household is working so hard just to make it financially, that nobody realizes how they neglect each other, and themselves... you only realize it when it is too late..or the symptoms interfere with your everyday life.
Maybe there is some Great counsellors, doctors out there who can contribute , and help us...
How do you get "back to normal" again?
How do you stay Happy, focussed, Healthy under tough cicumstances like this?
Where do you start, to gain control and get your health back to where it was?
Everybody knows to immigrate is challenging, you lost your support system ,sometimes your home language , your friends and family..but nevertheless it was the better choice ? or Was it? Because you end up sick? addicted? unhappy? divorced? or just sad and confused...
Is their an organization that I am not aware of?
Although My life is still in tact..I can feel that things are going in the wrong direction..
I am working too hard..I don't have time for my children , my husband, or myself..
The Stress makes me sick.. constipated, anxious, emotional and give me sleepless nights.
I have no time for exerize ,relaxation any more.
I am Thinking of using Alkohol to help me sleep, although I know that is not a healthy choice..I am affraid of taking meds..
Maybe there is some easy steps to follow that will make everything easier?
