    Distorted flashes in right eye

    I know this isn’t the place for a diagnosis but I’m unable to go to a hospital or visit a doctor. My family does not believe me when I say anything is wrong with me if I do not have physical signs. So a hospital is out of question right now. I had these distortions in my right eye. They were...

    Death Anxiety / Thanatophobia

    Hi all, My name is Timothy, and I help produce a podcast about new emerging technologies.

We wanted...
