Hi, pinkeye,
I'm sorry we won't be seeing as much of you on babble. I hope the move goes well and isn't too stressful for you. I'll miss seeing you here, and I hope you have regular Internet access once you move to India.

As for dealing with the stress of adjusting to a new life, here are my suggestions. I think you should make some emergency just in case backup plans to move to the US, if it becomes unbearable for you in India. That doesn't mean you have to go, it just means that you've saved phone numbers for embassies, contacts, friends, apartments etc. and I'd recommend getting a credit card in your name and saving a secret stash of money for yourself, if you don't already have that. That way you will feel more secure in your ability to move around on your own.

I'd also recommend that you immediately start trying to make friends went to get to India -- contact old classmates, friends, or join any clubs, gyms, art programs or other places where you could go to meet educated people like yourself. I think it will be very important for you to build up a support network in India.

I'd also recommend that you start seeing a new therapist in India, one who does not know your family in any way, and who does not know your husband. Even if the therapist in India are not the same as in the United States, it may still be useful to talk to someone.

Are you excited about moving to India? Do you think you'll be happy there?

I hope everything is going okay. Take care.

JenStar
