  1. I know this is off-topic but please listen. I am getting hurt pretty bad and I am asking for you help. There is a very dangerous culture out there that is persecuting me because I disagree with some things that it has done. Currently I am being spied on tortured, poisoned (my heart isn't doing so good)... Please read my story and if there is anything you can do I'd sincerely appreciate your help.
