  1. It did get better once I rationally thought this through but when your dealing with screaming kids all day (teacher) coming home to loud music can test your patience. Thanks for all the responses!
  2. My gf says "channel" it out, I can last a few minutes before stressing myself and shouting. Gotta give it to the thais they really can sleep through anything! Think earbuds are my best bet!
  3. On Sukhumvit they've recently opened a new market and to celebrate they're holding live music every night up until the 21st, I'm talking drums, live singers, guitars etc till 1am. I'm in a condo opposite the road on Sukhumvit 50 and honestly the noise is unbearable it's driving me a little crazy. I'm teaching all day from 6am then getting no sleep till 1am, feels like I'm not getting a moments peace. I'm fully aware there is nothing I can do and I have got pretty used to noise around here but this is incredibly intrusive. Has anyone else been affected by this? and does this not bother the local thai residents that are having to wake early every morning?
  4. Thanks for the response. I am a fairly anxious person but it has always been manageable. I think you are correct as the few days after I have pretty much normal again. Time of the booze will bring me benefits to both my mind & wallet!
  5. Hi panda13 I drink maybe once a week a few beers. Recently due to time out of work from changing jobs my drinking has increased, you are almost certainly correct it doesn't go well with me. It's after I've drunk (hangover stage) I feel anxious. Thanks panda13 this is also the longest time I've taken out of the gym since being here (1 month) so I think I'll follow your tips.
  6. Thank you Sheryl, I have never used benzos other than for the long flight over here and intend on using them as a cure. I am not currently at risk of harming myself as one poster may have suggested (no offence taking don't worry) and if things got to bad of course I would go home. I'm in my early 20s and generally i'm enjoying my life here and would like to combat it before it gets any worse. Regards.
  7. Hello all, I suffered with a stage of anxiety back at home which I managed to get past using a combination of Mindfulness, breathing techniques and online resources. I have been in Thailand 7 months now and really haven't suffered from any which has been great. Recent 2 months I've been under a load of strain changing between teaching jobs and immigration issues that came with it. During this time of stress I have felt anxiety creeping but using my past techniques I have been able to keep it at bay. Today however I had a 3 beers at lunch (small beers); I am not a day time drinker but it was a special work occasion so I didn't want to be anti social and then after was hit with a wave of depression. Then whilst eating in Big C I had a huge urge to get out the shopping centre because I felt I was going insane (panic attack). I've never quite felt that before and it's quite scarey. I know I can beat it again but being so far from home makes it harder, if anyone in the area can give me some advice and suggestions that would be amazing. Thanks.
  8. Thank you so much but where I'm confused is my work permit was cancelled on the 20th (I wasn't aware of this) but left on the 25th on a flight to Cambodia. I'm assuming this means 5 days overtstay?
  9. Hello all I know there is some form of overstay on my passport and I'm happy to pay. Basically I left Thailand on the 25th of December and returned on the 1st January 2017 on a new tourist visa. I was previously on the extension of stay but now know my work permit was cancelled on the 20th December. Soon I will need to go immigration to correctly cancel my old EOS as I did not do this properly. Does anyone know if my overstay is from the 20th December until today or just from 20th December to 25th December. Thanks in advance.
  10. So essentially without letter of dismissal from the old school there isn't much I can do?
  11. My new school are now stating until i'm fully off that visa they will not allow me to work to defend their back. Will the department of labour be able to help in any way?
  12. Can I further add that the website to print off a "work permit cancellation" form is currently down; so if anyone could upload a PDF version if needed that would be great.
  13. Hello all. Having a bit of a nightmare here. I left my old school. They refused to hand back my work permit or give me a termination letter so I left their visa by doing a border run to cambodia and entering on a new tourist Visa. I did break my contract and did leave the company on bad terms but believe me this employer was treating staff horrendously. For obvious reasons I will not name this company nor try to expose them but if you google tefl blacklist they come up very high on the list multiple times so it was for good reasons I had to leave. Anyways cut to the chase; I have joined new school and I'm really enjoying it. Today I was sent to Chonburi Immigration (In Jomtien, Pattaya) with all the correct paperwork to apply for my new Non B. The woman at immigration refused because I do not have a stamp in my passport to confirm my old extension of stay (although she called it business visa) had been cancelled. My old school will not give me a letter of resignation nor will give me my work permit back so I am left in a situation where I have 30 days (the remainder of my tourist visa) to some how figure this out. Does anyone know how I can get this visa stamped as finished without my original work permit / letter from my previous employer. Thanks in advance.
  14. Hotel was queenswood on street 136. Horrible street but nice hotel, $15 for air con and cable tv!
