We’re All A Bunch Of Nutters

A-scum-231x300There are only two headlines on the front of the English newspapers today. One contains the word "depression." The other contains the word "madman."

Fecking marvellous.

For those of us whose lives have been ruined because the vast majority of employers do not have the vaguest idea about the complexity of mental illness and regard all who have suffered from it as potential serial killers, this is the worst possible news.

I can just imagine a certain bishop of the Church of England smugly thinking to himself today that he was so right to ban me from parish priesthood and then sack me because I had been ill from depression. Heck, if I had been allowed to continue my vocation I might have crashed my church into the side of a Swiss mountain.
