The Pain Of Being Today’s News

There are major items on news programmes today concerning mental health in the workplace. Lots of company directors are being interviewed about all the wonderful things they are going to do to help their employees with mental health problems. The government is going lead the way by insisting on best practice in the civil service.

I should be happy for all the people who will not have to go through what I went through. All the people who will not be sacked and thrown out of their home for the unforgivable crime of suffering from clinical depression. But all I feel is anguish and jealousy. The only way I can cope with my worthless life is by trying not to think about it. The news reports bring all the pain to the forefront where it cannot be ignored.

Mind you, it is going to get a lot worse. Any day now the Church of England will jump on the bandwagon and start pretending they give a damn about the mental health of its employees and priests. That is going to be a very painful day indeed.
