    An original title I am sure but hi here I am at last. I am desperate to speak to anyone because I go for days without seeing or speaking to anyone.

    The history of existence.

    So now it's a different kind of worry, as I have a date confirmation of 8th January for my hearing (lower tribunal were ordered by upper tribunal to re-do my case due to mistakes made first time around); nothing in the post - this date was told to me over the phone as I yet again had to badger...

    Hallucinations from exposure to original family dysfunction/toxicity

    Hi all. I just need to tell intelligent people with minor mental difficulties that I was exposed this week to my family members fighting with each other, after two years of not talking to them at all. They were so rude to each other. And there I was giving all the compassion out that I could...

    Got it in to my head that I'd left the iron on

    Today I went to meet my mum by train, I'd gone about 15 miles in one direction & she'd come about 100 miles in the other direction to meet in the 'middle' (her train does go faster than mine), anyway I got it in to my head that I'd left the iron on, I couldn't remember the precise moment I...

    My Harmonic

    I would like to talk about a voice that I call a harmonic. A harmonic is a voice that sounds just like you in your head, but at times can have a mind of it's own. It runs in parallel with your real thoughts which are not really heard like a voice is, just like the harmony to a melody in a song...
  12. peace_within


    Fear is not the truth. Let me see that my original quality is one of peace and love. Let me realize that all anxiety arises from some layer of false identity. My true nature is peace. If I spend some time reflecting on that and creating thoughts based on my original qualities, it is possible...

    Hello from New Jersey, (where is "old" Jersey?)

    Just dropping by to say how are ya! I find it fascinating that I haven't the foggiest notion where the original ("old") Jersey is, what it is like there, countryside, or urban? Though I do understand that the original Jersey is in England, somewhere. I had visited your nation at one time, where...
