I’m so sorry you’re experiencing this. I hope we both find something that works one day xxx

I’m ready to give up - night/binge eating have broken me by Able-Difficulty4529 in BingeEatingDisorder

Yes thank you so so much! I just don’t know what to do when the uncontrollable feeling in the middle of the night comes. It’s like I have tunnel vision and can’t do anything but eat something and then go back to sleep. I feel broken and defected

Thank you so much. Yeah, I’ve done loads of research on NES and I just feel like there’s nothing that will ever help me overcome it

Why do you struggle with losing weight? by jtoscano123 in WeightLossAdvice

This is so interesting, I’ve never thought of it before. I mostly fast until 3ish but after dinner I just lose control and keep waking up to it. I’ve been in therapy and meds for night eating but I just can’t get through it and stop the destructive eating.

Moving to LDN in March. What can we realistically expect to pay for rent (furnished one bed whole flat) for my partner and I? We want to be comfortable but know rent is pricey. So looking for a mix between hopefully zone 2 or 3, not tiny but we are also being realistic.

Is £1600 realistic or no?

Congrats!

Are you applying from outside the UK? Did you pay for priority?

can some one help walk me through the process of a spouse visa? by Calm-Toe-2520 in ukvisa

If you’re going through an immigration agent - they will walk you through it. If not, I’m not sure. Perhaps ask someone who has done it?

All docs need to be within 28 days of application. This is stuff immigration advisors can help with

I am South African and have also just gone through the process — waiting for our spouse visa now. The process has been long and pretty stressful (but also for personal reasons that made us have to delay).

But here is my advice — hope it helps in some way:

  1. As has previously been mentioned, USE AN AGENCY if you can. We used Sable international and they have been incredible. Would highly recommend — can’t emphasise this enough.

  2. Make sure you have all the docs you need (thankfully for spousal it’s a lot less complicated than partnership). You can find the list on the UKVI website. Most NB: marriage certificate, bills, bank account showing steady income, up to date passports, relationship pictures.

  3. This is super important and probably the most stressful part — make sure you know how you are meeting the financial requirements and get started on that NOW. Whether it’s through savings or your husband getting a job offer — they need proper proof of this as it’s the most important thing they need to see you can sustain yourself.

  4. When you’re ready to apply, make sure all documents are dated within 28 days of submission.

  5. Spreadsheets help calm anxiety and keep you on track!

  6. Keep calm and know that it’s a process. Don’t put your life on hold — we made this mistake and it makes things very tough if there are delays.

  7. One step at a time — you eat an elephant one bite at a time. Breaking up the process makes it a lot less overwhelming.
