a word of advice

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Philippines

I wish I could follow my own advise sometimes. Every step of this process has made me crazy with nerves. As it turns out, each step goes well. I mailed my Wife the final package for her interview(pay stub, I-134, more pictures, ITR) you know all that stuff.

Anyway, of course i was a nervous wreck until I called her tonight and she told me that she had the package.

SO I offer this bit of advise, (which of course I won't follow LOL) don't panic! there is no reason to panic things will go fine. I am actually just venting here so i am rambling so sorry about that. I am just so excited about everything.

Your right most of us are good at telling people to relax but don't do it ourselves. So all I can tell you is to keep busy that helps a bit keeps your mind occupied. Having said that I am sure all will go well at the interview. :thumbs: Best of luck.

I think we all feel that way at some stages. I only got into a panic when I received an appointment letter on March 21 stating that my fiancee had a March 25 medical and April 1 interview. I couldn't get my attorney to get in touch with me, so I rushed and got it all put together, only to be delayed until June 4 for the sputum test, LOL!

Just remain positive. Take some time off during the day and spend some quiet time with God.

These are some of my husband's words to keep us motivated -

(1) Always look at how far we have come rather than how far we have to go.

(2) Just keep the faith and drop the fear.

(3) Worrying is optional.

God Bless.
