    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...

    My OCD.

    I have OCD. I remember when I worked at a University, I was in a hall that had students taking their exams, although i'm pretty sure we called them schools rather than halls. So this was the south school I was in and it was assigned to me to look after and make changes, etc for the exam period...

    Changing medication

    Hey guys. I’m currently on citlopram 40mg. For a while now I’ve noticed it’s starting to become less effective to the point of me nearly attempting suicide last week. My doctor is wanting to change my medication but win me off citlopram first. Has anyone come off it ? I’m just wondering about...

    My mind - Complex, intellectual and multi-dimensional.

    I'm asking a question, based upon my sanity. Going back to the early stages of my life (which I can remember very early on) I have been different - I have never been in tune with my peers, although I was accepted into groups and lived a relatively normal first stage of child hood. I was...

    Does it get better?

    After being sexually assaulted in April, I just want to know, does it get better? Will I ever stop feeling guilty? Will I ever stop wanting to cry whenever I have sex with someone now? Will this end?

    Ive never been in a relationship

    As in with a girlfriend; is that weird? I wouldn't say ive been avoiding relationships, ive just never sought one out. I guess what it mainly comes down to is not wanting to complicate things (life can be hard enough just trying to cover your own groceries and bills); and also not wanting to...

    Fantasy about SH'ing for the first time
