The truth is, I suffer with a mental illness and know first-hand just how unfunny that is.
I don't think having apathological distrust/dislike of bankers and/or politicians is a sign of 'mental illness'.
No, it doesn't, but that's not my issue. I do suffer with clinical depression and anxiety issues. It's mostly due to my physical ailments [spine disease, arthritis, and injury induced vertigo], but I also get quite down when I've run out of beer.
Oh, and I don't have a pathalogical distrust/dislike of all bankers. I met one I liked once.... was interred 6ft under at Worrel View Cemetery.
Wow....just used my bung hand to type this....
About that! The "bung hand', that is. I won't say who suggested it, but she reckons it's cramped up from too much wanking. Fankly, I don't believe it! In fact I proffered my own theory that it was too many Gps and holding all those red flags, but she wouldn't have a bar of it.... reckoned ya should've changed hands more often.
Nah, seriously, I know what it's like to live with a disability and it's not that easy. I have daily difficulties, as I'm sure you do, so I never take it for cranted when I can do something that others can't. I have a friend named Lindsay who has the same affliction as you, but he also has it in his feet and behind one knee, meaning he has an uneven gait that causes stress to his better leg. Now he has an arthritic hip and knee in that leg... and I'll hazard a guess that he'll have spinal issues later in life due to the imbalance.
That's what happened to both my sister and I... spinal issues due to the imbalance of bung hips and knees, tho Shaunna reckons it's cos of too much shaggin' when I was younger. That Might be true, the shaggin' bit, that is, but the bone disease/arthritis is actually hereditary. My mother and her sister suffer it, as did their mother grandmother before them, along with many other members from that side of the family.
Thing is, there are others worse off than I, and I can still put a smile on my face, so I'm good.
