Well it's finally happened- I've had my first breakdown/freak-out as an expat in Bangkok. The kind that leaves me crying uncontrollably, unable to move from the couch, cursing everyone and everything, etc. The cause of this breakdown- the fact that we have to leave Bangkok.
Ever since the floods hit Ayutthaya and the Rojana Industrial Park, our future seems to be changing so quickly and nothing seems to be under our control. Eric's company kept changing their mind about what they were going to do with the expats here in Thailand, but finally they've decided to move everyone back to the United States.
This is not how I imagined our transition back to the US would go. I though we would have plenty of advance warning to prepare, both mentally and logistically.
I focused so hard on making Bangkok our home, that having it ripped away so quickly makes my heart hurt.
