I have pharmacophobia, and here’s how a therapist suggests I cope

Dec 18, 2019 by William Lewis.

I realized that patients with emotional wellbeing concerns frequently got unforeseen weakness care. I realized that specialists were bound to be disrespectful of female patients, and I realized that getting to quality mental, social insurance was a test for those using the general wellbeing framework. Be that as it may, while I knew about the entirety of this, I was as yet stunned when two specialists straight got over my emotional wellness concerns and self-destructive ideation the previous winter. I was significantly progressively disturbed when these encounters drove me to create pharmacophobia, otherwise called the dread of drugs. As a...

“Everyone I work with is a nightmare!”

Dec 15, 2019 by William Lewis.

The words came out of my friend’s mouth: “Everyone I work with is a nightmare.” It felt like something out of Black Mirror. Time stopped. We fused and became the same person.

How to deal with rejection, from someone who really, really knows

Dec 15, 2019 by William Lewis.

ccc and I was convinced it was my destiny to play the singing headmistress leading her pupils on an intergalactic odyssey. I rehearsed my audition speech and practiced my step-ball-change for weeks. But when the casting announcement was posted on the classroom notice board, I found out that I hadn’t got the role. I’d been given a bit part as an alien instead. Rejection hurts.

I’ve been refused grants by nearly every major funding body in...
