Scared and alone in BKK

I have lived here 20 yrs, the first 2 yrs I had culture shock, then it went away, and I felt at home here. You are living in the wrong place, move to a smaller city, Bangkok is a tough city. You could try Chaing Rai in the north, or a low key city is south. A psychiatrist will only give you meds,  which are hit and miss, and eventually, your body builds a resistance to them. On the whole Thai people are sweet people, not perfect, but if you are kind, you get kindness back. I have seen Thai people and cops tolerating the most repulsive farang behavior, like it wouldn't be tolerated in the US or Europe. You have your partner and your dog, lay low, don't drink, meditate and you can make it here.

If you're living in Bangkok, you're living in the wrong city, PERIOD. It's absolutely a Third World horror city, nowadays with First World prices... The whole purpose of putting up with living in a hole like Bangkok was the low prices, now long gone... Soon to be 30-something baht to the pound (currently at 40.5 baht to the pound and falling), imported farang food costs 2 to 4+ times the price of the same food at home, rent not cheap nowadays either, pollution off the scale (comparable to India). Why would you want to pay First World prices to live in a Third World city? Bangkok is unique in that it's the only Third World capital that now has First World, or even higher, prices for almost everything. Once Brexit is done, you're going to be seeing 35 baht or less to the pound, which makes Bangkok completely unaffordable for "English teachers" earning 20,000 baht a month.

Also telling others how important sex is........the plot thickens

Watch the Home Alone movie and the sequels.  You will never fear burglars again.
