Re: English Football 2011/2012

As a Liverpool fan I can say the season has been a disappointment for me. I am pleased at winning a minor trophy and with some if the performances (I think Carroll has got much better and receives too much stick) I watched the title chase unfold and although I could not bring myself to watch the uni...

Re: The 'I Feel Down' Topic

Yet again I find my self at a severely low ebb. This time without medication or someone I can talk to I feel completely vulnerable and insecure. As is often the cause of this it is at the hands of someone else. So I thought stuff it I'm going to ask for opinions:- you guys tell me, for how long do y...

Re: The 'I Feel Down' Topic

As a person who has been permanently down and anxious for many many years if anyone wants to chat I'm here. I've (unfortunately) lots of experience of this sort of thing. I admit myself that a recent counselling session has pinpointed my issues to work on and I'm actually starting to be "normal...

Re: The 'I Feel Down' Topic

Yep I'm part of the "down" group as well. Mine (unfortunately) is mainly triggered by other people and their quite frankly thoughtless actions. Doctors, Couselling, CBT and lots and LOTS of medication still cannot bring me round. Im not quite as pessimistic as Sam but I find I can still de...

Re: Wrestling

I used to be a big fan. The moves these guys (and gals) do are amazing and the skill, timing and sheer athleticism required to do this every day has me astounded. I have been to five shows when they visit the UK. All at Sheffield arena and have seen all the brands and the majority of the talent. The...

Re: Scary/freaky stories.

When i was younger (and much fitter) we used to go cycling on the moors. Had many freaky experiences up there. The first one that springs to mind happened to my uncle. We were cycling four of us wide across the road. It was probably 9pm on a wintery night. My uncle decided to stretch his legs a bit ...

We used an exit pass i had been given at the hullabaloo event to get on air since the queue time was at 90 mins. So we walked straight on! I was stood in front and all i remember is seeing who i thought was SJT in some sunglasses of a kind. I cant remember anything else. I was wearing a Pittsburg st...

I thought that the policy in scotland being piloted was that you could still buy alcoholic beverages in pubs and clubs at 18 but to buy from an off licence or supermarket you had to be 21? Discouraging the current trend of getting wasted before hitting the pubs and clubs. Which alot of people blame ...
