Warning: This post was published more than 9 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 9 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Much like a certain other blogger, I’ve been really struggling for what to write for this week’s Gazette Communities piece. The result, which is now online, was Embarrassment about mental health costs lives.
It’s not brilliantly written, but is sort of locally relevant at the moment, with a sort of national resonance, and is very loosely based on this post from last year.
I’m pretty sure it’s my worst one over there yet…
