@Miika, how are the plans going for Greece? Did you find out about mental health services there? Do you have a plan for treatment while there?
Not to get in your business @Miika but I am curious about this too. I’ve always wanted to try living in another country but I find the transition daunting.
Yeah, like @Air said, I’m not trying to be in your business. I genuinely am curious about it all and I’m wishing you the best of luck!
I’m not sure how the services there are, but I’ll be bringing enough meds for a few months just in case.
I think you have to pay to see a doctor there
I’m glad you’ll have a cushion with the meds until you get it all worked out. What’s the job you’ll be doing there?
My dad just sent me a message saying he’ll cut me off financially if I leave. I was kind of expecting that tbh
That’s harsh. Why do you think he’s so against it?
He’s worried it will negatively affect my mental health
What’s your game plan if something starts to go awry?
Greece is a great country with great weather.
Our sun here is natural antidepressant
Is it warm there yet om?
Yes, warm days, 20 degrees Celsius.
Rarely cloudy weather.
Our great sun is a masterpiece.
I’m not sure. Take prn medication and talk to someone
Have you thought about seeking a support/case worker? Just for a little extra support as you transition
I think you need a solid answer before you cut yourself off from your entire support system and move to a place where you don’t speak the language.
I have to agree with @ninjastar. I’m not saying don’t go. Just that maybe you should get a therapist to talk to before you arrive so you immediately have some sort of support. I’d also line up a psychiatrist before you get there. It’s really important to have support when you’re making a big change like that.
I think that going to Greece would be an adventure, it might be difficult, however, to find a doc who speaks fluently English. I would like to visit Greece again. In 1986, 34 years ago I was in Crete, it was a nice vacation. Of course if something goes wrong, you can always go to the ER in Greece, but the language may again be a problem. I do not know how well Greeks speak English.
@Miika. Please make sure you are aware of resources (such as your country’s foreign embassy in Greece) should you need assistance.
