    Hi

    just joining up as I have a few things going on in my life and becoming overwhelmed.

    Uni student living interstate, away from family and friends and due to border restrictions can’t go home. Well technically I can go home, but then can’t cross border to return to uni, so kinda stuck.

    looking forward to chatting with others.

    Hi Gonzo83,

    Welcome and welcome, thank you for joining us and I hope you'll enjoy being here.

    I'm sorry that you're interstate; it must be really hard not seeing your family and friends, how long have you been away from them?

    I haven't seen some of my family in a long time either and it's been really hard because they feel so close but so far.

    I hope you are coping ok, happy to chat about anything here and keep you company during this tough time.

    rt

    welcome. That must be hard not to be able to see your family.
    I have a new grandchild whom I can not see which is hard.
