Or any of them poor ladies. That sort of thing makes me never want to leave my house. Prison is too good for them, they need torturing, not given 3 meals a day and an X Box and TV. Xxx

We cannot let the off-season nutters dictate our freedom. Life is about adventure and that means taking (reasonable) risks. I refuse to be dictated too by the crazy!!! I am life and I will have freedom. .........

i have never understood what i have started to call the "pain equation" - a strangely popular form of modern maths. It seems to suggest that the world has only so much suffering to go round, so learning about someone else's pain minimises ours.

Not true: does my migraine make your toothache less painful? No, of course not. Suffering isn't equitable - some people do suffer far more than others - but it IS personal. I can only suffer my pain, not yours - although I can empathise with yours. Am I glad I'm not Amanda Berry,or the other abused women found with her? Of course I am. Does THEIR suffering make mine any less? Sorry, but no! Suffering is nasty, vicious, painful, whatever it is and whoever is experiencing it!

And as for - Get a Life - I know everyone on here would LOVE to "Get a life" - our problem is that mental health problems, couple with or exacerbated by, personal circumstances, make "getting a life" so very hard. If it wasn't, we wouldn't be here, would we???

Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who worked with the poorest of the poor in India, was interviewed when she came to England. The interviewer asked her a question along the lines that, in view of the dire poverty in India, the poorest person in the UK probably did not seem poor to her.

"Not at all." replied Mother Tereza. "They are still the poorest person in the UK."

Go figure!
