    Thanks LaLa, I see what you mean.

    Ranting on about women

    Hello lifelong. About this - I joined this forum because it is for mental health support. It just happens that I am responding to this topic because it is here, so not sure how it could follow that it's obvious I'd have these views. I'm not trying to dismiss your experiences here btw, just giving my perspective.

    Ranting on about women

    I would say because they have more decorum, self respect and respectfulness. It also is simply not relevant and none of anyone else's business. Remember also youtube videos like that are over the top, made to get as many viewers as possible.

    TheDane, I think you are being a bit unfair to LaLa here. Your opening post implies that you would like women's views on this topic. You can read those views already expressed here based on personal experiences, they should be acknowledged as valid. Hopefully we shouldn't be in an echo chamber here on the forum.

    TheDane, I can honestly say that I have never had this sort of conversation with my girlfriends, nor would I. I cannot be the only one!

    Mental abuse and Human Rights violations

    Raisul, it's difficult if it's hot, I don't know if a normal fan would help? Re. the thugs, they are probably very ignorant if they are bullies - as malign says , is it really realistic to think they could affect what you are dreaming? You worry they are somehow 'religious', they sound more like an antisocial nuisance. Also. what are the dreams of - is there some sort of theme going on? Maybe only a professional skilled in psychology can help you through this. I would consider telling your tutors you are struggling if you haven't already so they can hopefully make allowances with your studies.

    Yes, the waxy earplugs are v effective. I guess the trouble is getting them as Vic says.

    Mental abuse and Human Rights violations

    Re. the barking dogs - if you can't complain about the noise, I don't know if this could help or not, it's an article about room soundproofing techniques, like having carpet, bookcases against walls, blanket curtains etc; https://www.wikihow.com/Build-a-Sound-Proof-Room

    Mental abuse and Human Rights violations

    Raisul, I would also say don't despair. All sorts of techniques are in the pipeline to help manage verbal hallucinations, not that I want to or would even try to diagnose you. Here's one article about an approach; https://www.mentalhealthtoday.co.uk/news/mental-health-disorders/study-demonstrates-technique-where-people-with-schizophrenia-can-control-voices In a nutshell, mentally landing a rocket on the unwanted sounds and practising that. This study was done with an MRI scanner to start with, however could well be worth a try yourself. I do agree too that a change of scene/location can help a lot, but understand you cannot do this, so try to make your apartment as comfy as possible, change/refresh things within it to make yourself feel as safe as you can and don't just stay in one room.
