I went down to the Let's Talk people on Tuesday and explained my situation. They said they had more groups planned, but didn't know when they'll be or which day they'll be held, just that it'll be "In the evening", but I asked to be notified when the next one comes about, but I have very little hope that it'll be on a day I'm not working and if 4 days notice is all they're gonna give me, then that's no good either, it's not enough time to tell work and maybe sort something out.
It didn't help that the lady I was talking too down there kept looking at me as if to say "Then why are you here?" while I awkwadly explained stuff.
Urgh, I wanted to at least be on a good road with this by Christmas but looks like that's not going to happen. I'm dreading Christmas at work so much :/
