    My Landlord thinks that I'm growing Cannabis

    That has to be the reason that they want to come into my home so much. From carrying out the Annual Gas safety check every nine months. Then a quality control inspection. To now wanting access to all areas of my flat for an asbestos check. That's inside cupboards and in every room too. Why don't...

    Meditation not Mindfulness

    Hi Guys. I've been searching for the right type of meditation that helps for years. I came across Raja Yoga Meditation at Brahma Kumaris Centres that are all over the UK + totally free of charge. The one I go to is near the Opera House in central Manchester, as it's geared to help cope with...

    I'm being targetted by a Phiser. I've received bogus emails purporting to be from various organisations asking me to login and check my account as it is in disaray etc. I always check the address of the email to see if it really comes from that organisation or not. Surprise surprise it don't...

    I think I may have ocd

    So, I am struggling with some thoughts... I know that I should see a therapist or doctor, but right now I don't think that is on my list. I have always been anxious (biting my nails, fiddling), but I went to a general practitioner and my mother mentioned one of my rituals, and the doctor...

    Warning, very long post here! Trying to wrap my head around it all

    Two days ago I was unexpectedly fired from my job of six months that I loved and had received excellent employee reviews for. This is the fourth job that I was terminated from in the last 21 months ever since my son was born. All four employers pretty much terminated me for pretty much the same...

    I'm not sure what is wrong with me. How can I check?

    Accepting yourself for who you are.

    I often am angry with myself because of low self esteem which leads to depression. I think I need to accept who I am. I am going to check out a book about it. Has anybody come across this concept and feels similar?

    I need help resisting the urge to self harm

    About a month ago someone leaked nude pictures of me without my consent. The pictures included my name, face, and personal info.

    Sick of one-sided friendships.

    I have maybe one or two friends that checks in every once in a while to see how I'm doing. But I do this often with many of my friends. It's like, because I'm not on social media as often,they just forget about me. One of my friends has just started ignoring me for no reason and we've been...
