*If you have anxiety over the virus, don't read this*
This virus is proving extremely inconvenient. I don't want to come across as self-centred, prioritising my personal leisure over a health pandemic. I understand it will be problematic for many, some people will get ill, people may know people that get infected, and because of all the shut downs jobs and small businesses are at risk.

I read an article from a professor of Risk Management who had done a study suggesting that more years of life will be lost from a 6.4% decrease in GDP than would be gained from beating the virus as there is a clear link between GDP and life expectancy. Which suggests to me that once...
This has been bugging me for ages, and I couldn't find many answers online so thought I'd ask all of you.Okay, I'm a victim of violent crimes; unbelievably, I have been assaulted by a violent female doctor, attacked by a teacher in two one-to-one lessons, and been sexually abused by a male doctor. I was a minor when two of these happened so I bottled them up for over ten years. When I finally...
