Mental Health

Recommended Posts

Gosh, I know this is a bit of a taboo subject, but I was wondering does any one here have a mental health issue?

The odds are good, 1 in 4 adults have mental health problems in any given year. Rampaging senility is my favourite :thank_you2:

It is relatively common but due to the stigma associated with mental health I doubt you will have many people coming forward...

It is also a shame when you look at how underfunded it is in comparison to some of the more "trendy" diseases

very common, people are generally uncomfortable discussing it. Stress and depression affect most people at some time, had my fair share...I recommend red wine as a cure all! :thank_you2:

Me - I'm completely bonkers! My plants go some way to keeping me sane :)

Seriously though it is a subject people might not be totally comfortable discussing on a public forum but then anything is up for discussion on this section if people want to partake. I think most people will go through ups and downs during their lifetime, some more seriously than others but thankfully the stigma isnt as bad as its used to be and there's much more help available now too....I know enough people who have had problems with depresssion, anxiety, eating disorders.

Despite my dislike of the question, I am 100% crazy. Off my rocker. Ravin' mad.

And the plants don't help...

I think James finds it therapeutic to sketch Munch's "The Scream" over and over again,

all round the walls of his cell.

All the more impressive as he does it using just his toes, as the 'special' jacket doesn't allow his hands to hold a pencil...

I'll join you in the pain de campagne and the jámon íberico - it's the very best.

But for my taste, the cheese would be Somerset Brie or Cantal laguiole, the apples would be Kidd's Orange Red, and the red from one of the old family estates in the Paarl region of South Africa.

And the company, almond-eyed, sophisticated and French.

Bliss...

You're most welcome to the food and drink, Dicon.

But no offence:

If you've got nuts, I'm not interested... :wink:

Just call me reactionary and biased!!

Vic :rolleyes:

Not as good taste as you, Lord Dex of Illinois!

Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it, m'Lud...?

Speak for yourself, m'Lud... I'm 100% nuts!

Gosh, sometimes I even think I'm a teapot, with a spout;

"Pick me up and pour me out!" :lol:

Then reality comes down, with a crashing thud.

And I'm little ol' me again. :red33:

Yours, etc.

Napoleon of St Elba :jester:

P.S.

Though, if I worked for Koch Membrane Systems - unsurprisingly, from southern California - I could be 10,000% nuts!!

(100% nutty, 100% of the time...) Wa- hey!! :rolleyes:
