Hey!! I will be moving to Athens soon with my family. This is a sudden decision taken by my husband and I'm confused.I have been scheduled for mommy makeoverf from a clinic in Mississauga on June 1st. Since we are moving, I'm not sure if it's safe to undergo the procedure and then travel before complete healing. I'm considering the breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction surgery and the downtime and cost for all these are different. So my surgeon advised undergoing mommy makeover. Also, he promised to treat redness and brown discolorations with a laser along with this procedure.My husband advised undergoing the procedure from Athens. But I'm not sure if all these can be performed there. I don't have any idea regarding this place and the best surgeons in our location. Any thoughts are highly appreciated. Thanks!!

Hello guys, I feel very lucky I found this community! I am Greek and my girlfriend is Canadian and she has been living here for the past year and going to stay for another one due to her job. The issue here is that she is feeling really homesick and depressed and she doesn't have a lot of things she likes here so I wanted to get someone else's opinion and ideas for things she could try because my perspective as a local is really different. To be honest, her perspective on Greece is really ugly. She has received a lot of racism here (on top of homophobia which we both receive) and I want her to find a safe space in a hobby or a community where people are willing to talk in English. She really loves yoga and I saw the listings for yoga studios in Athens but I am not sure if they have English classes or just list their business in English to attract tourists. If you have tried and the classes are expat friendly I would love your opinion!The other part has to do with mental health. We discussed it and she would like to talk to a therapist but she thinks they are too expensive and/or not experts on expat/ lgbt issues. Have you used a therapist here and if so, what is your experience?** She also loves dogs and I was thinking we could take care of one for some time now that everyone is going on vacation but I will write another listing for that on "Pets".All answers are very much appreciated!
