"Hi Mike, That is great to know. Thank you. I think I am getting on OK at the moment. The biggest struggle I am having is with the language. I live down in Cheongju (effectively right in the middle of the country). It is a much, much smaller city…"

I studied History at university and graduated last year, in July.Around two months ago, I made a massive life change and moved to South Korea to become an English teacher. So far, I think it has been the best decision I have…See More

"I just want to say thank you for all the responses and I am sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you all. I am hoping that it is just homesickness and me adjusting to such a large change in my life. Like Rick was saying, I think it might be…"

"I don't think it is depression; I think it is homesickness.  It is a far different culture than what you grew up with and because of that you feel you don't belong.  My wife suffered similar reactions from moving from Buffalo to…"

Well, I am not really sure where to begin with this. But I feel like I need some help and the people on here seem like a great group. I am a long time lurker but this is my first post. I am 22 years old and British.Basically, over the past year I have had a couple of episodes of depression (each lasting between 4 and 6 months and often linked to something happening in my life at the time). The first time was just after I finished at University and the second time was when I began a temporary…See More

When can a boy learn to fight back?

Good Evening Gents,I have two young boys. My oldest is the only one in school yet. Today his mother called me in a panic because another boy slapped my son in the face at recess. For whatever reason, my son did not press the issue and bring it up with his teacher, I'll have to ask him about that. But, that got the thought into my head, when IS it ok to tell a young man that if someone lays hands on you, it's acceptable to defend yourself? Obviously, I'm not thinking I should put my…See More
