My wife introduced me to this forum and I've been a silent reader ever since. My long journey finally came to a close after 11 years (I came here when I was 16).
During that time a lot happened of course, but we all have a tough story to tell living here. Though I've been here a while I still consider myself one of the lucky ones to have a wonderful wife who supported me through these tough times.
The Interview was fairly short and we were barely questioned. My IO was an ex-police/militant and he was very professional and straightforward. We had plenty of evidence and all questions were correct. The only issue was the medical because they put blanket immunity for shots I've already taken. I have no idea why they did this, but the IO said it's unnecessary and just gives them more work to do. After driving back home, my wife got the update 10 minutes after the card was being produced. I was overjoyed and in tears while driving on the interstate. It maybe tough, but don't give up hope. We all have been through tough times so just know it's only temporary and the best is yet to come.
