Very very recently I found out a friend of mine committed suicide. 31yr old. Top lad. Life of the party. Recently married. So much life left. Yet he felt he had no other option that to hang himself in

I'm afraid I have to agree with you 100% on that. My son (only child) killed himself recently. He was found hanging in woodland in a small village in East Sussex during that heatwave in July, was

I've recently experienced a mental health situation in the family, had lots of professional support plus close friends (we ain't got many😁) and family, we seem to be "out of the woods" at the moment. 

Get all the help you can from every source because there is a cure out there, the hard bit is finding it.

Cheers, D.

That’s a very very good post that . 

when I first joined the army , I barely knew my top corridor of people , you never met anyone in those positions  really unless you were in trouble or promoted . 
when 

my old troop commander was made the unit 2ic (second only until the oc , a feted position in the army) , every Monday morning before parade , he’d go round sake hands and ask every single person from the 
Most battle hardened colour sgt to the lowliest Pte how was your weekend ?? 
 

you genuinely felt appreciated, and it built bonds over rank and troop structures. 
 

it is in the little things . 

And there you have it brother, a bloke being the change he wants and having an affect much wider than himself…..didn’t cost him a thing to do it and he is remembered for it.

I read a really good thing in a novel once, the main character was talking to his elderly mum and saying how he felt helpless in the face of a big situation with powerful people who would overwhelm him and his loved ones.…..so he was probably going to turn his back and leave well alone.

His mum slapped him round the face, that being the first time she had ever hit him and said:

“God put good and evil in the world in equal measure, when you do something good it puts a little bit more good in the world but if you see evil and do nothing then evil wins…..if you are a good person then do good and help good flourish.”

That always stuck with me, it can be as simple as not being pig ignorant at a supermarket check out…..little acts of kindness wether that be a “good morning, how are you” or just not being a total arsehole to someone less fortunate than yourself increases the good and that helps everyone.

Im not an out going person really but I've made a real effort to talk to people. An easy one to start with is people on checkouts, just smile and thank them genuinely, have a brief crack with em and hope they have a good shift. Speak to the bored security guard. Stop your conversation when a waitress comes to your table and give them your attention and look at them as you thank them.

Good……I head out on the bike now….been doing it for a couple of years now…don’t like the effort of going out sometimes but once I’m out for ten minutes, I’m flying it….concentrating on pushing the pedals, focus’s the mind. This seems to allow stressors to float away and lots of solutions to problems come to me when exercising, or least become minimal…..

I do think the term mental health is overused now.  I know people who have suffered with mental health and most people have no idea how much they suffer.

exercise and a bit of fresh air are great tonics…..

The mental health word is very over used..and people use it to there advantage. 

I fell out with a lad at work not long back as he used for days of work.

That's despicable in my mind

Yes the widespread use of it, trivialises the issue’s that people who are suffering have to endure.

I have visited more nicks than I ever wanted to in my life, they are without exception f***ing horrible places……what does that say about life when prison is the better way of being alive ? 
That’s a damning indictment of society that is…….it’s positively Victorian ! 

I have heard some young lad's on the estate i live talking about prison as though its some badge of honour sad as feck .

I,d not want to go back again, but I look at it now as another chapter in the colourful book of my life, a fool keeps making the same mistakes but if you learn from them and move on they were worth making, 

You loved the showers ! 😛
