    Ideas for calming down?

    I try exercise(going for walks/runs/hikes) but it usually makes me more irritated and I feel worse. Listening to angry music helps sometimes but then people try to talk to me and then I snap or something and get in trouble. I don't get angry often, usually I am just in a state of irritability...

    Witchcraft and fairies

    So I did something and I'm not sure if I'm in trouble or not. I'll just start from the beginning. There are many beliefs around the world when it comes to fairies (or faeries, fae folk, etc.). Some believe it's not real. Others believe that it's a type of spirit. I'm one of the people who...
