Somedays, I feel ninety too. You don't need to have a 'friend' like Linda and should remove her from your life. Tell her that you know she means well, but she's like a bully now, butting into your life. If she doesn't stop, it will be the end of your relationship.
I had to do that to a long time friend who turned Baptist and tried to convert me.

    She just told me the same thing. If I do not stop complaining she will stop being my friend. I don't know what to make of that.

    LOLOL. Tit for tat. Suggest a trial separation.

I am trying hard not to grin over this one. I love that you are so loved by your friend, Linda, and I mean it. I am sorry she is a pain in the butt, but I get why she is doing it. Well-written, Sasha.

Hi Sasha! I'm amazed at your ability to handle these types of things. But your friend meant well, and it's better to have them care. Just keep calm the best you can and remember, you are not alone in chaos. It's the norm for me. lol! Hugs and hope you like your new house! :D x

    I wish I had never moved. I am so far away from everything that I get bored sitting in my little apartment all the time. Linda has calmed down and only means the best for me. I love her dearly and am thankful she is such a good friend.

reply by Realist101 on 08-Nov-2019
    I feel this way here, Sasha. SOooo alone, just trying to escape being harassed. Our house is nice, but just ruined with these idiots roaring over us every time we step outside. Well, all the time practically. I sure hope you will be okay! You're used to doing things, I'm used to just being here by myself most of the time...after the knife was put where I ride and take dog, I've not gone anywhere here alone. Hang in there sweetie...huge hugs and love! Sure

Sounds like your friend is a bit too helpful. Dealing with the government takes time. I spent an hour and a half on hold with SS a couple weeks ago. I also had to contact the USPS which took almost two hours and the woman I spoke to couldn't figure out what I meant. The only place worse than the gov't to call is Hoveround where you can be on hold forever just to get a crappy new part for your falling-apart chair. They don't fix the chair, they send the part and say it is self-service. They have self-serviced me into getting a new brand of chair. Take care, my friend~Debbie

It is wonderful to have people who care so much about you. It is also hard at times as they can get overbearing. I myself am a little of the overbearing type. I, though, hate it when it is being done to me.

Glad you hear you're still moving forward.

    Knowing Linda means well is all I need, she truly loves ad cares for me. That lessens the anger the coms to the surface when she begins to annoy me. She means well and truly cares about my welfare.

It sounds like Linda is concerned about you. I was able to get a clear picture of what is going on. These tasks, especially paper work, can be down right confusing and upsetting. Try to be calm. Easier said then done, I know.
Great to read about your goings on in Mazatlan once again Sasha. Just got my subscription updated!

Yes, Linda loves you. If your bank account is still the same, I don't know what all the hurry up fuss is about with SSI. It's not like they're going to check on you personally. But it's done now, so no more drama.

I know moving is a big change for you. You'll get used to the area. I wonder if one of the neighbors would walk with you to the market a few times so you can memorize the route. Spending a little time with a patient Spanish speaking neighbor would definitely help your Spanish, and it's good to know your neighbors and for them to know you.

Why not turn your phone off unless you want to use it? You can check in with Linda by email. Just a thought.

Hugs.
Nancy

    She has not called me for two days, this is a first for her. I still don't really know the cause of the urgency she espressed but at least it is finally done and hopefully I will never need to contact SSI again. I know she just cares and shows it in a slightly annoying way, but she is a dear friend that I can turn to in an emergency.

It is reassuring that you received an email from Social Security confirming they got your update. I know Linda is only trying to look out for your best interest, but she needs to realize that she is adding stress to your life.

I am proud of you for working on improving your Spanish. Here's to another good night's sleep- Joan

Hi Sasha,

I feel for you. I remember when I had to apply for a number for income tax purposes for selling my books on amazon. The whole process was confusing and took a long time to get it going. In the end I had to mail my passport to them. I didn't like doing that but it was the only way. They did mail it back like they promised.

Take care, my friend, and keep writing to us. I like to know how you are doing.

Joy xx

    SSI isd a poorlyrun office andIdrealeer having to deal with them. AT least I survive and with Linda's unwanted help it worked. All I wanted to do was update my address.
