Seriously thinking of going home. Totally fed up of being pissed about and treated like some second class citizen by some faceless git in an office. Kick in the teeth after kick in the teeth is all we get and really, Australia is not worth it. Yes the weather is better and the social apsects are better and the country is beautiful, but what about our mental wellbeing and feeling of belonging?
In all honesty I have tried so very hard this last 2 years to remain optimistic and maintain my deep love for Australia but it is becoming too hard for me to bear anymore. I am sitting here in tears writing this as I just don't know what to do. We have given up absolutely everything to be here and the chances of Rich getting his old UK job back are zero which leaves him professionally right up **** creek.
Today I spoke to immigration as I haven't replied to an email we sent 3 weeks ago. They have kindly informed us that we sent some docs that cannot be used, that our form 1100 is invalid and that they havent recieved information from us, even though we have emails from them stating they have recieved them. The promise of a case officer this year has been put back to 2012 by which time our 457 visa will have run out.
Today is a bad day. I am lost and in pieces. Will things ever be good for our family? We are good, kind people who work hard and have committed to Australia in every way possible, but when you get nothing but negativity in return it seems hardly worth the effort.
I am sorry to everyone who is trying hard to be positive and usually I am the one up there believing things will work, and it is all worth it. Chin up guys im sure god only craps on one family at a time and this lifetime its us.
