Hi there all, well does the stress ever end? When we started this process in January, we had to lodge our main application to DIAC by end June, so time and stress was always an issue, but we got our TRA done (took forever but got there!!) then applied to SA for sponsorship, got that and ticked another box, we then lodged to DIAC with our complete application on 18th May, so we thought....ah...sit back and relax now as we have lodged in time so we can chill abit...but now the Medicals have overtook our lives and we stressing more than ever....there are 8 of us, my, O/H and the 6 children and we all obviously have to pass to get the Visa Grant....so now we sit here every night thinking "what if something wrong with one of us??" I have a hole in my heart, have since birth (its called a VSD) I have no probs with it (Have given birth to 7 children so my heart is as good as anyone's!!) I have been to hosp in the last month to get all tests done so that I can take the reports to the medical, have had ECG and echocardigram and they all ok, so I am not concerned about that bit as I know it not an issue, however, me and O/H do smoke, we have cut down loads though, we were 20 a day, now only 5 a day and we only smoke those cos of the stress of the whole Visa journey! I know I have scarring on my lungs from previous chest x rays, but we are both fit and healthy, we run every day 5 or 6 miles, we bike also 5 to 6 miles every other day and O/H has stopped all alcohol, we eat healthy and have an active lifestyle.....but I still STRESS and WORRY about these bloody medicals!!!! I am sure I am not alone in this, many of you have been there and done it.... so I am just ranting and worrying today...PIA is great for getting things off your chest!!!!! Cheers all for listening!!
