    Alone again

    Yesterday my best friend of 8+ years decided she no longer wants to be my friend. She says I know where she lives yet I never come over. What she seems to forget is, I’m the one that has always been there for her, I’m the one who sent her good morning text when she was suffering from depression...

    Not sure what my problem is....

    Hi Well, not sure where to start really. Something's not quite right in my head. I have an ability to overthink all situations into a negative. A few mistakes I made when I was younger play on my mind a lot, sometimes I can't let things go. I work hard and have a very stressful job which I...

    It may sound strange but I became bulimic by accident. Through dieting I managed to lose weight but then became obsessed with what I was eating. I eat about 500 calories a day, which may be more than you would expect for someone with bulimia... The other day I was at a friends house and her...

    As it happened. Maybe you can see it coming.

    I've never really thought about this; I try not to. I've also never told my story to anyone but it is time for me to stop and take stock of what is going on albeit it probably is a wee bit too late to do much about it now for me. In any case, I'm going to put this out there. If you find yourself...

    Lifelong impotence

    I'm 19 and have genuinely been impotent throughout the whole of my development to the point where it's impossible to get any sort of erection. The though of going my whole life without being able to start a family or enjoy sex has made me suicidal. I don't leave my bed, have multiple panic...

    Not enough fruit and veg

    Like a lot of people ,I guess, I don't eat enough veg. Perhaps that's not surprising given the number of ready/take away meals I eat. I do wonder how to eat more veg with my ready meals. Like how do you microwave the veg and the microwave at the same time? Being a Philistine I tend to put the...

    Work triggering me

    My boss recently lost weight because of stress, and so many people who know her come in and point it out. Tell her that she's lost too much, mostly, and it doesn't suit her (which I think is rude! But she laps up attention. Anything to get her talking about herself). Some say she looks well. I...
