Apparently. Haven't even notice this happen over night. Guess I won't be one of those showing off in the gym-showers.

You could consider, not replying to other posters, when they spend their time giving you advice and trying to help as.... "being rude on the internet".
Iím depressed replying is effort

You have been given lots of links and advice, use them?

You seem to be really unhappy here so the question on why not go back home was a genuine one.

Plenty of organisations in the UK to help with that. not so many here I expect.

Again, more support options in the UK than here. Plus you're going to be struggling to communicate if you don't speak a Swiss language.

All in all, like it or not, the UK is probably a better place for you long term because you won't get any money from the Swiss. They don't give handouts like the UK does for these situations.

Well that's dumb. You tried it, great, but you clearly don't like it and it's not working out.... why continue to struggle/suffer just because of stubbornness.

Public oversharing in OP's situation doesn't sound benign.

. Everybody has scaring.
I assume you mean scarring?

I think youíll find that most people actually donít have facial scarring. Some of those who do can find it quite debilitating.
It often depends on the nature and severity of the scarring.

Re: Struggling to survive entitlements

Maybe, as some seem to think, Justin is a troll or fake. But just think about it: if he is for real then he is traumatised in more ways than one, and suffering from a range of debilitating ailments, some of which are in the known cluster associated with severe PTSD.

And even so he is still making the effort to work and earn his living as best he can with limited energy (and limited food) and to fulfil what the police require of him.

Despite what sometimes comes across here as his not implementing the various kinds of advice he has received on his threads, (not sure I could, were I to be walking a mile in his mocassins), and as exasperation and occasionally even rudeness (like the PM Curley mentioned) on Justin's part... the young man seems exhausted, frazzled, stressed and poor, and I think - given his very unfortunate set of life circumstances - he is rather to be admired for not giving up and just gone on the dole.

Here I agree 100% with MusicChick:

As I wrote on one of Justin's other threads:

Please tread easy.

As we're seeing from Justintheexpat's other threads, he is in a very difficult position at the moment, having had a severely traumatic experience and still going through a terrible time, yet even so trying to figure out how to get it all together.

So please don't make his load heavier.
Thank you.
