    Cool Depression!

    Here is one for MB! My darling sister has her immigration interview in London next week as part of her ITA. However, she is currently signed off work and being treated for depression. Is it still possible to come over here if you have or have had depression?

    Your sister is going to emigrate? News to me!!

    Anyway - I have found some threads on another site, which should offer her some solace as others have gotten in whilst on happy pills. It looks as though she might just need a letter from a phsycologist (sp) and that should be fine?

    Saves on the babysitter fees I suppose?

    Hey - they could buy next doors now that it looks they are selling up! Imagine that .. wander if you could hear the "MMmmmmm" from over the fence at mealtimes?

    oooo .... and your Mum could pop over and clean, and after she could take our clothes and iron them and pop them back ... yep - am getting used to the idea now

    So you guys are married and live in the same house...... Is it a house rule to communicate electronically?

    I'd keep away from that other site though, seems to be a lot of depressed people on there!

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    You mean there is another way? That sounds great as it's a pain in the @rse having to check my emails all the time to see if Lou wants a cup of tea

    Spamming a rival forum - it's enough to make me depressed . I wonder if I can still get in .

    Jon, I think there may only be a problem if it was chronic depression. If your sister is only going through a 'bad patch', I doubt it would cause a flutter. I'd post the spiel about medical conditions deemed to cause a problem, but I've been shunted onto hubster's PC and all my immigration stuff is on what is now my 'old' computer. Unfortunately haven't got time to fiddle about with it as we're off out.

    Thanks MB. It's all news to me about my sister, both about the depression and her applying to move over here, so just trying to get some info to help her out.

    All I've got on medical stuff I threw down on this old thread if you just read the coloured bits. I thought I'd seen something about depression and suchlike a long time ago and hoped to dig it up again, but it's evading me.
