    Can anyone else fill in the ESA50 form that I have? It has to be back by Friday and its an uphill struggle to do it. I'm only on page 3 or 4 so far. The beers in my fridge are calling to me. I have no one that I can ask to help me with this poxy form.

    Sectioning and builders of mental health units

    "You are a Bigot".

    I made the mistake of reading the first sentence in the box of my email sent by my sister. It read, "You are a bigot." She has this obsession with calling people bigots. I was suppose to simply delete it without reading it. I asked her not to write or call. She doesn't care that she is making a...

Its so embarrassing even if I'm alone. I must have a really broken brain. I wonder if there is any...

    Desperate Help

    Hello Homies, Let me start by saying I am a 20 year old college student. This past week I have resolved to kill myself.
