    Feel anxious before meeting up with friends

    For some reason, I always feel slightly anxious and/or nervous before catching up with any of my friends one-on-one. I don’t know why this happens to me, but it annoys me because I just want to feel relaxed before seeing them. I have several close friends and I have known them for many years...

    I've been doing trauma psychology for a few months now and a few times I have been so confused and dazed by what's gone on and blanks on my memory. Last week I felt awkward.

    Lost of intelligence/executive functioning. feeling awkward and blank

    I feel like I’ve lost my intelligence and many of the executive functions in my brain, or that the part of my brain concerned with decision making, problem solving, and memory is just asleep.

    Talking to my GP

    Hi, so recently I've been having some very upsetting thoughts but kept them to myself. My friends found out a few days ago and have encouraged me to go back to my doctor to discuss the situation. The only issue is, I have no idea what to say or how to say it. I can't even tell the people closest...

    I think someone has been using my Mac

    Let's make a long story short: I've been suspicious that someone from my college have been using my Mac behind my back. I've overheard many conversations where people have known things they shouldn't, and I don't even talk to them much. Until recently I've always thought it was just me being...
