Make sure to use your searchbutton or be willing to go back a few pages to see if something has alreadybeen posted so that the information isn't repeated time and time again! Forexample, when you see a thread discussing MCR’s latest video and you want toshare your favorite part, please post in the existing thread rather thanstarting a new one. Asking questions isn't necessarily a bad thing; however,please use the search button first. Do not post the same thread in more thanone forum. This will all keep the board less cluttered and help things to runmore smoothly. Please post topics in their appropriate forums. If youposted a thread (that doesn't belong in the forum it was posted in) and it hassuddenly disappeared, chances are it has been moved to the appropriate forum.Please look there and please DO NOT re-post a moved thread because you cannotfind it. Also, feel free to refer back to the forum descriptionsabove when posting topics. If you aren’t sure where to post, come back here andre-read the info. Choose the forum that MOST relates to your topic. 3. Member Relationships: A lot of people here have become good friends. Some peopleare on here every day and have relationships outside of the boards. Do notexpect to make friends over night. Don’t be afraid of posting or askingquestions. We’re all here for the same reasons. Also, don’t hesitate to contactthe board admin/mods. They’re here to answer your questions and make thismessage board a great place for all fans to hang out. If you stick aroundthough, you'll make friends and participate in a lot of fun activities. **That said, please be extra cautious giving out anypersonal information. Additionally, do not post anyone else’s personal/ privateinformation on the boards.** 4. Respect Board Members: Please be respectful of others. It is ok to have an opinion;however, it is not an invitation to bash someone. Disagreement is OK.Controversy is OK. Everyone can be respectful when they disagree. There is noneed to get nasty over a disagreement. Keep in mind that people of all agesread these boards. Some people may kid around and be sarcastic, but I thinkpeople can generally decipher the difference. Provoking them will not solveanything and if they are bothersome to everyone (and its obvious), they will betaken care of. Report ANY thread you think a moderator should look at.Sometimes the board admin/mods might miss a thread. If you find spammers,obnoxious threads, or anything you think should be reported, send the mods/admina message or report the thread (see below for more info on reporting posts). 5. Personal Attacks and Trolls: Sometimes, disagreements can turn into personal conflicts. This canbe classified as something going beyond a minor disagreement and it turninginto something that can be handled outside of the boards. Please, try to avoidthese, or they will be handled otherwise. However, if someone makes fun of youbecause you didn't read the above listed advice, that is NOT considered apersonal attack. There is a difference. If it needs to be more clearly definedlater, that can be arranged. 6. Closed/DeletedThreads: Please be aware that if you don't follow the rules, there will beconsequences. It’s up to the discretion of the board admin and moderators.Threads/posts can get deleted, edited, or closed when deemed appropriate. Mostlikely there is an explanation why a thread has been closed; however, if youare unsure why one of your topics gets closed or deleted, contact the admin/modthat closed it. Threads/posts will ALMOST never be disposed of for an opinion.However, the option is always there for a thread to be deleted/edited(especially if it goes against the board regulations). 7. Reporting Posts:Do you see a post/thread with content that you think violates some of the ruleslisted above? Most of the time a board admin or mod will catch it. If it’s notclosed or handled quickly, feel free to report the post. Although they try, itis not possible for admin/mods to view every post on every page all the time.Any help you can provide in helping us solve these problems is greatlyappreciated. When reporting a post, please make sure to include a descriptionwhy the admin/mod needs to address the thread or post. It will help them knowwhat they are looking for instead of reading through pages of posts. If thereare certain members causing trouble in a particular thread, make sure youinclude their usernames and why you think they should be reported. **To report a post, use the Report button on the bottom-lefthand side of each post. If you can’t find it and still want to report thethread, copy the thread link and send it in a message to the boardadmin/mods.** 8. Signature Guidelines: For more information on signature guidelines, click here. 9. Spelling and Grammar: When posting, please make sure to double check your spelling.Additionally, please refrain from using text/AIM speak such as, "i wnt 2tlk b4 tmrrw" or "idk y u r tlking lyke that". It's ok to usesome terms like "lol", "bff" or other common abbreviations,but please don't compose a whole post like that. We appreciate your input andwant to make sure that everyone can read it. Also, please don't use a large font or bright colors as yourdefault posting settings. It's ok to use once in a while, but can make yourposts difficult for members to read. 10. FileTrading/ Bootlegs: Discussion of how and where to obtain bootleg (illegallyrecorded) audios or videos is not allowed. Direct links to such files will beremoved promptly and threads will be closed if it gets out of hand. Please keepsuch discussion segregated to private messages. If you're unsure whether or notsomething is a bootleg, here's a simple rule of thumb - if someone sitting inthe audience recorded it, it's a bootleg. Officially recorded aired ontelevision, radio, etc are perfectly acceptable. If you're still unsure, do nothesitate to contact a mod asking whether or not the audio/video you'd like topost is an illegal recording. This is both out of respect for MCR and any otherperformers, as well as to conform to all applicable copyright laws. 11. Becoming a Board Mod: If you are interested in applying for a board mod position (or suggesting another member), please PM the board Admin for more information.

Any threads about mods (ie suggestingmembers, bashing mods, etc) will be deleted. If you have concerns about theboards, either post them in the Help section or address it with anotheradmin/mod. 12. Respect BoardMods and Administrators Mods and Admins are only doing their jobs to enforce rules.They are volunteers that are passionate about the community and help it to run.

Sister Wives 3: The Regeneration

Recommended Posts

I hope so. I think Googling will commence tomorrow!

I will look at other jobs but I'll probably hold on to see what happens, mainly because last time I had a job interview I had a panic attack beforehand and cancelled it, now my anxiety is 1000x worse.

So sorry to hear that Kerry! Crossing my fingers for this working out in the best wxy possible. I have no idea how the rules are in England, so can’t help with that, but I’m pretty good at finger-crossing :)

Not really, they're making mass redundancies on Tuesday so it's 99% likely I'll be out of a job. My anxiety is so bad I've barely been able to sleep or eat since Wednesday. I still haven't heard anything about counselling (been waiting four months now!) so I think I might go to the Dr on Monday to ask for medication. I can't cope with feeling literally sick from worry 24/7, and there's no way I can go to job interviews when I feel like this. My body and mind are shutting down on me :(

Happy (late) International Women's Day!

I didn't see your last post, sorry!

We haven't heard more yet, we know our jobs are 99% likely to be made redundant, we just don't know when.

I didn't phone the doctor either but am going to tomorrow, I want to see if there's anxiety medication I can take as and when needed e.g. before a job interview to help with the physical symptoms of my anxiety.

How's everything in the land of Francesca (and anyone else reading)?

Good luck with it all. Keep persevering with the doctor! You'll get another job, too - it sounds like you're pretty good at your current job, and I can guarantee you're better at for interviews than you think you are.

I'm all right! I've been writing a lot - and I'm finally calling my current project a book, and telling people it's a book, which is a step up for me because usually I refuse to tell anyone anything then wonder why they don't care about my work haha. Also this way now I'm telling people, I have to finish it... Spring has finally arrived here too so I am in a good mood!

Thanks! I've reapplied at the place I cancelled the interview last year, and also the doctor gave me diazepam so we'll see how that goes :blink:

That sounds interesting, what's it about? How far through have you got?

It's fantastic seeing some sunshine, makes such a difference to the day!

I bought some diazepam in Vietnam last year so I could sleep through a 25 hour bus journey. I don't actually know if it made me sleepy or just really relaxed, but I am fairly confident your doctor communicates with you better than I did with a Vietnamese pharmacist... don't prescribe yourselves drugs, kids. Do as I say not as I do.

It's a children's book about dragons, sort of, but I'm not saying any more yet because there is always a chance I will change elements and end up with something completely different to what I have now. I'm partway through a set of edits on the first draft so I have a loooong way to go but I'm enjoying it!

Haha that's brilliant, did you manage to sleep the whole time?

I've just had a phone call offering me an interview tomorrow at 2pm, that's less than 24 hours ahhhhh!

Ooh exciting, do you think you'll look to publish it in print?

Good luck with the interview Kerry! I hope everything works out for you. I totally understand the job related stress you're going through. 

I had a Skype interview for a HR Digital Media role and then a follow up face-to-face interview today and I find out the outcome on Friday. It's so much work and preparation for a potential unsuccessful application. 

My added stress is that I'm getting married in August. Unemployment sucks.

Yep, conked out except for lunch and toilet stops. Brilliant stuff, used it on all the ridiculous Asian journeys after that. It's illegal here without a prescription though, so I dumped it before I came home. Probably a good thing, I have no idea what's in it.

GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR INTERVIEW! Sometimes it's good to get these things done with quickly, there's less time to panic then.

I'm definitely hoping to publish traditionally (with an agent and traditional publishing house) but I've worked on it so long that at the very least, I'm going to hash it into some sort of ebook PDF and vanity print it if no publishers are interested. I'm even tentatively trying to use it to crowdfund, offering free ebook copies to patrons, because writing it is a long process and it eats into my day job. I literally just spent two hours editing, and it was a ridiculously satisfying two hours, but that's two hours I'm not getting paid for and might not see return on, so. Oh the joys of being a writer.

I hate Skype interviews, my tech always dies on me and my face on camera always looks nothing like my actual face. Congrats on getting married! Aha you're so grown up. 

You'll get a job eventually. Good luck for Friday!

Thank you :wub: I think it went okay and the diazepam definitely helped beforehand.

I hope you get the job, it sounds exciting. And congratulations on getting married!

I don't know what's in it either but it works! It's supposed to be very addictive though so now I'm through the job interview I'm hiding it away.

I'm so grateful the interview was today and not next week, I work myself up so much if I have the time to do so! But it's over for now and I think I did okay. However I did officially get made redundant today so I now have no job :/

Good luck with it, it sound great and I'm sure publishers will be interested :)

Think of all this as a fresh start. You've done a good job interview, you can leave all those colleagues you don't like and at your new job - which you will get - you get to kind of reinvent yourself.

Thanks! I am going to be telling EVERYONE when it is done god I'm exhausted by it already but it's so much fun!

Wow I’ve missed so much in the past couple of weeks. I’m so sorry you were made redundant, Kerry! Although I’m glad you started being proactive about it soon and went to an interview.

not much has changed here. Still working! My plan was to look for a new job in the summer that has health insurance, but I really love working here. So I might end up doing Obamacare (even though it is stupid expensive for basic coverage.)

Francesca, your book sounds cool! I can’t wait until it comes out in some form.

I'm definitely trying to see it as a positive. I know I can pay my mortgage for at least three months without a job if I had to so that takes the pressure off a bit, and I'm actually looking forward to having time off.

I'm sure it'll be worth it when it's done, I look forward to hearing more!

It seems so alien to us British folk having to pay for healthcare. I can't imagine how difficult it must make making simple decisions like your job.

 

In other news I got a hamster today. He's called Pepper but his middle name is Ham Solo.

Kerry, that is an excellent hamster name. You sound like you've got your finances worked out, so at least you don't have to live in a state of permanent anxiety while you look for jobs.

Rachel, I can't imagine paying for healthcare either! I have a monster cold at the moment and I'm taking it for granted that if it doesn't clear up, I can toddle down to my GP for relatively cheap medicine.

Yeah it sucks. Right now I have medical and dental through my mom. But if I don’t find another job (or somehow get married) by the end of next year, I’ll have to purchase it... it will be about $130 a month just for catastrophic coverage (like if I get hit by a car or something.)

at my last job with the city, I paid about $50 for month for medical, dental, and vision.

Greetings Sister Wives!  Sorry for the extremely long absence. It's been a difficult period of time in 2017 and 2018.  I am doing much better both medically and personally. I feel like I am finally getting a handle on things and it feels great!  How is everyone doing?  Hope we can connect again soon.

All my love,

Sulfur
