That last post wasn't shared on Facebook for some reason which I don't understand. I'll try with this one.
Because I was high a while ago, I now have two iPads, a Buffalo hard drive, a speaker dock for iPad and iPhone and the dinky little yellow mushroom speaker which I mentioned before. I"m hoping to sell the second iPad. There's something so seductive about Amazon, don't you find? When I click on a buy, I don't think I'm spending money, and even when I get my credit card statement, it doesn't seem real. Does everyone think like that, or am I one of a few? When I was in the RAF doing debt counselling (!) there were quite a few airmen who thought that a new cheque book meant they had more money. I can identify with that.
Stephen Fry has once again opened his mouth without engaging his brain, this time about Op Yewtree. Admittedly, he only has bipolar lite, so he has no excuse. Celebs who suddenly develop bipolar disorder spoil it for the rest of us - they very rarely have to suffer hospital admissions, unless it's to The Priory, and in most cases they can afford manic spends. I actually think Ruby Wax has done a lot more for mental health than most - I read her book about the brain, and although it was a bit of a Noddy's guide, it did at least try to make sense of the whole business. She did a thing on the BBC website about mental illness, which was great.
Now listening to Wild Thing by The Troggs, which used to be my party piece at Happy Hours in the mess. Three chords on a guitar and anyone can play it. I taught myself the guitar when I was 11 - the first one I had cost me £10 and was a semi acoustic cherry red marvel, with steel strings so my fingers bled. I skived off school for a week to learn how to play. Now I have three guitars, including a 12 string, and my sister and I often jam together when she's here.
Maybe I'll try to sleep?
I spent 16 years in the RAF defending the Free World , then got bunged out unceremoniously for being bipolar. I and was subsequently diagnosed with PTSD. Funny old world, isn't it?
