    Hey guys - I hope you are all doing well :)

    I have created this new thread and hopefully, it will be a place of support and positive energy for those that hang here.

    Please be respectful towards others and if you have nothing nice to say, please do not say it.

    A Thread for Support, OK?

    Well, I am still awaiting some form of settlement but it is not looking good. I just have to try and be positive. That is the only way :)

    Had a big shock last night. I was looking at the memories thing that comes up on facebook and found comments that someone had made on a post of mine. I clicked on his name and discovered that he had died - in late February. We hadn't seen each other for about four years for various reasons. I thought of him often and loved him dearly as a friend. From what I found out, he had had a heart attack a few weeks shy of his 31st birthday. I'm still reeling and cannot process this news easily. I couldn't get to sleep last night and when I did, I dreamed about him. He was fit, worked in the fitness and building industries and was a lovely, lovely man. I'll miss him forever.

    I don't. He was my personal trainer about ten years and we became friends. I've been out to the cemetery and said goodbye. I got onto one of his friends and asked him for details and he told me that it was a heart attack.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Give yourself time to grieve. It sounds like you blessed to get to know him.

    Awesome you said goodbye - Life is so fragile and to leave at such a young age is a reflection. I will always say it with a tune

    @hooleydooley good luck whenever, wherever you land - I am unimpressed with WA these days, lived there when it was different & wild, now it is just like an ENORMOUS SUBURB spread everywhere.
    And eventually, the southern part where everyone I have ever known in WA now resides, will be like a new state with its own airport.
    Get out while you can.

    So, is there a huge footy match on this weekend with WA v VIC team? For airfares jump to $300+
    Or some event???
    Fare is usually about $165.
    We have to get there sooner rather than later:)

    No Events I know of! West Coast is playing Melbourne, so that is not huge and School hodays are over. That is a huge increase !!!

    So apparently that WC v Melb is responsible for the huge hike, up to almost $400, good grief.
    Interesting stuff you find out from going and back & forth a lot.

    Footy nuts, who knew...

    Things are getting really scary, and this distance is unbearable sometimes

    Indefinitely, one way ticket...
    Bringing 2 sisters with me, both are unwell, one physically one mentally, if one doesn't behave she will get shoved away to exile.

    I am lucky to have a friend that will pick us up from the airport and express trip to Bunbury St John of God.

    Pray for us anyone.

    Thank you sincerely @qtkt, I am so afraid and so is she, my baby sister has had a tough life with some awful luck.
    A gentle soul she is a scientist, works with dolphins.
    We need a little more time, if you could ask in your prayers, just for some time.
    Thank you again.
