    Overwhelming

    Exhausting

    Confusing

    Frustrating

    All due to sorting out forms & red tape. If it was only effecting me I'd give up.

    Oh, Sophie_M! 😺 but thank you for your concern. I think I see what 'triggered' you, my use of the phrase, 'give up' - in context, I'm not, you know....s******l.

    All I meant that the paperwork, which needs to be filled in, fully & accurately, the supporting documents which need to be exactly correct, & locating appropriate legal assistance has proved to be like a long distance marathon through the Himalayas, thinking we got over one mountain, only to have to go over another, & it's mountains all the way to the horizon.

    So far, this one has been the worst. That's bureaucracy, eh? I'm just hoping we're not going to find Everest in front of us, but we're taking on one hill at a time.

    & thanks to you, too, Learn to Fly. 😸 I'd've liked a n 'okay' day. You know what? We don't appreciate the 'okay' days enough. Let's do that!

    I feel I 'missed' today, getting into research again, until I was 'interrupted' by 'disturbing' neighbours, who were arguing loudly, using foulest language at each other, & to anyone telling them to keep it down. That'ts taken up to two hours of my time...over four occasions. Just today.

    So, 'Frustrated' again. Finally, feel, because I was not one to shout out to them, or even try to help them sort out whatever was wrong, I feel my old friends, 'helpless', 'hopeless' & 'useless' waltzing around me.

    Better now, even though it is late again. I did get a little snooze earlier, though...Talking here makes me feel I have some worth. So, at the end of this day, I feel 'value'..
