  6. What would the difference be between the 2? When I can get to my GP, i'm looking at putting in a claim for 1 or the other. This problem is surrounding severe anxiety and some depression. The main issue is the nervousness. As far back as I can remember it has always been a thing, but over time has become much worse. I remember being in a computer game store with my mum when I was 8, and she let me go to the counter to pay for the games. I was physically nervous at the counter, shaking, struggling to make eye contact and constantly fiddling with things. So, I know this nervousness has

  8. Hi, I live in central London, I've got a lovely flat I've lived in for 8 years now. I haven't had kids yet because I believe in being responsible and if I can't afford them I shouldn't have them. However, I've changed my mind today. Having been through the joke that is the work programme, I had the indignity of having to go to a benefit meeting today where I had to show my I&E to see if I was better off in work. Because I get the maximum Housing Benefit the system allows, I could never get a job that would pay enough to cover my rent. But the [edited] advisor was trying to make

  10. This is why we say 'size doesn't matter' and to take on these companies no matter how big they are and how much above the law they think they are. A man from Ceredigion has successfully sued Apple after his watch broke - forcing the company to change its product description. Gareth Cross, 32, from Aberystwyth, paid £339 last July for his Apple Watch Sport, but spotted a crack in the glass face 10 days later. The technology giant said work to fix the watch was not covered by warranty, despite its official claim it was scratch-resistant. Apple has been asked to comment.
  11. Living with PTSD: Former military medic reveals how the battle goes on for veterans The first female RAF paramedic to work on the Afghan frontline, she now finds it impossible to step outside the front door of her Wigan home most days. She wets the bed and has recurring nightmares, in which she regularly finds herself back in Afghanistan surrounded by the horrors she has witnessed. Flt Lt Sanderson completed three tours of Afghanistan. During that time, she was routinely flown by helicopter into the heart of the fighting to care for military and civilian casualties. It was after

  17. Battle of Britain chapel to 'the few' threatened with closure to save £50,000. Winston Churchill said St George's Chapel of Remembrance on the site of the former RAF station at Biggin Hill in Kent should be a permanent shrine to ‘the few’ who gave their lives during the Battle of Britain. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/defence/11324206/Battle-of-Britain-chapel-to-the-few-threatened-with-closure.html Please open the link and click on the e-petition link in the text or click below to go direct: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/73191
  18. My job is in the public service for nearly 20 Years. The last two years has worsened, cutbacks, blame, toxic atmosphere, confusion. The last Year has been hell, since my new Manager arrived. I see think she is an autocratic perfectionist who focuses on the negative aspects in people performance, including me, who make a few errors under the pressure of our jobs ( though she has her favourite‘pupils’ ), whilst she side lines the positive bigger picture. Praise, when it comes feels shallow / awkward. We are all facing the Performance Improvement Plan if our standards don’t improve. I s

Given that delivery is four weeks on new goods it took us five weeks of constant calls and hassle to get a faulty chair repaired. They refused to replace this chair despite a serious fault appearing after only one day. No one came out to inspect. The shop staff passed our complaint to the factory who did call and make promises to do somet

  21. eBay froze my account due to 'unexpected activity' (meaning I sell toys, had the foresight to sell them early and made a load of cash over a two week period). No explanation, no excuses. They refused to move, or give me the money (PayPal also frozen) so I ended up giving pretty much back everything in refunds as I couldn't afford to buy the stock (money all tied up in PayPal account). This has ruined my company. I owe some fees to eBay but there's not a cat in hell's chance I'm prepared to pay it if I have any chance of fighting and winning. Does anyone have
  22. Fourteen years ago I did a TESOL course at my local college. I did it on the advice of my counsellor, who thought that it might stand me in good stead if and when I was able to return to work, because I could do hours here and there, work part-time etc. The course was great. The teacher raved about my performance, both orally and in writing on my assignments. In fact, she asked if she could have a copy of my portfolio for the library, so that future students could see what was expected of them. I mention this only to show how little sense what followed, made. The college never sent m
  23. hi, I'm really in need of some help. My partner has had a ccj for an old debt taken over by wescot. We have moved house quite a few times recently so I'm assuming that is how we missed the original court papers. Immediately we knew about the judgement we contacted wescot to ask what the bill was for. aparently it was an old catalogue debt but the only one he had was only for a couple of hundred pounds. This is now £1700! Have asked for details of the original bill but they have never replied to our emails. We asked for the order to be varied there is a

Hi guys I'm having difficulty with wonga and require some advice.I took the advice previously from here and opened a new account and transfered my wages,direct debit etc etc so they raid my account,but I'm in dispute in getting a repayment plan.Basicaly I filled out the income expenditure form on their website,but the minimum repayments would have left me with next to nothing to live on,so I contacted them and the guy said just except the an but delay the first payment a couple of weeks and a member of our financial hardship dep will contact you.I followed these instructions,as you can imagine
  25. We left oz having lost all the money we had worked so hard to save. It was not our fault but we could not afford to go to court to try and win compensation. We spent three years prior to finally literally caving in trying to pay off huge debts. We finally left with only enough to get by with and brought ourselves home. We left behind about $???? in credit card debt Left no details of our where abouts and the only contact there has been has been to the old address we spent the last weeks at. The present tennant (friend) has just sent any mail back to the companies as being not at th
