Hello, everyone. I've been away on a coach tour and it has done me the power of good except for one thing. I found out that the friend I went with does not think as I do about anxiety/depression.I did try to keep off the subject as much as I could but there were times when it came into the conversation. She said ,"Moaning about it doesn't do any good". I tried to explain that getting things off your chest does help and mentioned psychiatry. It was then that she snapped back at me in a loud voice,"I don't want to talk about it. There's a time and a place and this is not it." I kept my tears hidden as I gazed unseeingly through the coach window. It was a real shock to realise the depth of her ignorance and lack of compassion. I never saw this side of her until now although she was one of my bridesmaids 54 years ago.
