Mmm, OP, one has to believe you are having it easy...think about those millions who would be happy in your predicament,who are living in Zim,DRC, Somalia or even Bulgaria or Romania!!

If you do not have a good social life or at least a lot of supportive friends and family. Sweden is hard, and with the cold dark winters, it does not get easier unfortunately...
