Hi there! Am new Male 42,
Having a really tough time, I lived in Canada for 16 years, got divorced and lost house. Came back recently to Australia to find a rental (grew up here) to get before wrapping everything up.
Anyway, been diagnosed with anxiety and panic attacks since. All my stuff is in a storage locker in Canada which I cannot get to during this covid 19 pandemic. Had planned this month to fly back and fix loose ends and to ship, had to cancel everything.
I have one suitcase and a bed and couch. All my mindfulness and hobbies are in locker. Cannot ship locker as it contains items considered illegal here. I need to personally cull a bunch of stuff before shipping.
My partner lost her job and is applying for Centrelink but needs all my financials which are in locker, I have no access as they are on lockdown.
My postal forwarding is expired and I am required to go into Canada Post with my ID, tried calling but I just get a ticket and cannot stay up all night waiting for a call as of course the time difference.
Same with ATO, huge wait times. No one understands how bad it is for me right now with no end in sight. I feel pressure from my partner to get information relating to her Centrelink. I am in a bad mood and it's unfair on her, I feel guilty.
All I can do is lay in bed and sometimes do a workout. I have no Medicare here which makes any therapy a drain on my limited resources. I do still have my social security there but it is useless being stuck here.
Had two very important hobbies, one I am world renowned for and the other is therapeutic. Losing interest in everything and drinking too much to cover the pain.
I had booked a course which was also cancelled, have not left the house for 4 days. Stuck, useless, frustrated, and feeling depressed.
Guess I keep trying is all I can do, anyone else in this situation?
