...

the next note to be replaced if I understand correctly is not the A$20 but the A$50, the fate of the A$100?, no Aussie knows!
My understanding is the remaining notes will come out next September. That might change in time.

And so this year compared to previous years, the Christmas hamper company mum and I are with actually left us alone. no phone call which was great because most of the time they call, they only want to do business by making you buy more than what you need or can actually afford and most of the time, the call center has people with limited English I don't know where the calls are coming from but being able to understand English or any other national language or very important, the fact Australian Employers hire foreign workers who don't understand fluent English and despite of this, they're still able to obtain a working visa is disgusting as they make no effort to learn or speak the language, as a natural born Australian Citizen this makes me very angry and I cannot believe we allow it to happen, these workers should learn the Language before they come here to work or to obtain Permanent Residence which eventually leads to being able to apply for Citizenship, if they're not going to speak English on an every day basis, they should go back to where they came from, Australia is not holding them against the will, they're able to move freely, so if your not going to act Australian. then ask yourself why are you here?

Fleexy been on my back lately, if he deletes this or suspends my account for a period of time, then he must really be having a bad day! by making up stories about double posting or hijacking threads whom which he has no evidence of this, so before you go accusing somebody produce the evidence before sharping the carving knifes!

And so after the last 2 weeks of work for 2017 I decided to go the break up even though I was not going to, I had every right to go or not go, but I figure since I worked hard despite my illnesses, I would go and collect my payslips, I hope 2018 does not plague me with what I endured this year, Hurry up 2017 and be over already, I want 2018 to be here even though if it means another year older in October!

Aaaaaand my 2018 is started off like 2015 did.

With a nice annoying bleed behind my retina.

Literally three years to the day from my first macular hemorrhage and I get another one. Can't help but laugh...

Apparently so, proYorp. :P This was actually quite lucky though - I caught the bleed before it would even show up on a scan (and the scans they do on my eyes are Very Sensitive indeed) so that makes things very simple. My eye doctor is always thoroughly impressed by how early I manage to catch these things!

So I've had an injection and it's already going away.

@nanomekia: I'm glad it wasn't as bad as it could've been. That stuff sounds terrible.

Huh....
Well, what I did was since I wasn't sure messages were sending correctly, I sent a test message separate from our Foray discussion. Then next time I looked, it was still in my outbox even though you'd been online since then, so I deleted it thinking the test failed. I don't know why it would suddenly send after I deleted it.... :confused
I'm not sure what even just happened, but things seem to be working currently.

If people have social phobia they need to get help, you can't spend your entire life trapped in your home, besides it really isn't that hard to spare a few dollars to afford a bus fare to take a trip to a coffee shop or a supermarket to buy your food for the week, a lot of people in the area that I live are able to afford an internet connection to do their food shop online and they're not even employed, they're on centrelink and feel isolated in their homes wherever if it is commission or private rental or even if they're are privately owned it is still no excuse!

Fact is you have to overcome your fears, running away from it does not fix anything, if you can afford internet you can afford to get off your ass and take a trip to buy groceries at the actual store instead of hiding away and using internet for everything!

I say this because I was raised with people interaction, the push to move everything online is scary! what if centrelink stuffs up your payment, you take a trip to the office to talk about that, and what happens next?, the staff deliberately try to push you to do it online because they hate their jobs, they do it just for the money, complete their shift and go home, only to endure another day of a job which again they hate!

Rorie, if you're talking about people with anxiety disorders then you need to understand it's not as simple as just leaving the house, and saying there is no excuse is false and unhelpful. It's not so easily controlled.

I stand by what I say, there is no excuse and those who feel trapped do need to get help, it is available for those who want it
I once felt afraid of leaving the house and I overcame it, If I can, Anybody Can, they just need to get off their ass and try!
