I've just checked The Times and my letter hasn't been published - no surprises there. Even the broadsheets seem to be conspiring to keep the Older Woman out of television. By Older Woman I of course mean Me - I think I'd make a wonderful host for a TV quiz show. It would be good for mental health as well, although I'd have to be a bit high to make the most of it. There was an article recently that said comedians are often introverts in their private lives, so maybe I'd be a bit over the top.
Annoyingly, I can't get into New Scientist online - it won't accept my password. I subscribed yesterday, so maybe it hasn't caught up with me yet. There's an interesting article on schizophrenia I want to read - apparently, using antipsychotics is fine at first, but over time their efficacy decreases and one may as well not take them. The article is quick to say that we should all keep taking the tablets and only do something with medical advice, but it was interesting. I'd dearly love to stop taking all the shit that I pour into myself - after all, no one knows what long term effects new atypical drugs have on a person. New Scientist says that there is a new computer programme that helps with voices - one creates an Avatar to represent the voice and gradually makes it less scary. I could certainly use that.
Daisy wants something to eat, and I shall try to go back 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?
