Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

Hi Boris Yeltsin! I think you know why I called you that. Your posts have reached the point now where you are actually wasting people's time. You have received some excellent advice (not from me) but have just dismissed it all. Three uni degrees? So 9 years at uni? Did you choose unis which were mal...

Re: 18 Year Old Son - Anxiety

Hello there He really does sound like my brother! At least he's getting out to the gym Does he do weights? Putting on some muscle would help his negative self image. My own mother thought of kicking him out of the house but feared the consequences. A loving mother like yourself just couldn't do it. ...

Re: HELP What’s wrong with me?

Hi there

See your GP

All the best

Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

Salsa dance classes! Plenty of Latinos where you are and never enough men to go round Quite frankly I wasn't going to reply anymore to this because on a scale of 0 - 10 with 10 suicidally depressed, your problem merits about 0.5.
