    That's unimaginable. It sounds like you're going through the whole tick list.

    Why did you think the papers all went together based on his throwaway comments?

    It's a difficult one as any advice comes across as condescending. I do believe where one lives has greatly influenced how people have dealt with it. Living in rural Derbyshire, having long walks and seeing hardly any anti social behaviour has made it bearable. I am usually one to see everything in black and white, some of the stories pals tell me from Manchester would get me livid to be sure.

    I now try to live my life by a set of rules. One of which says, if I cannot alter the situation then let it go. If i can alter it try my up most to do it.
    I find society difficult, don't like so much about it, tried to make an impact as a younger man, wasted 25 years in Education trying to change the world.
    I am potless at the moment, cannot do any of the things I like and love, do find pilates and a little meditation relaxing, 10 miles a day, and 2 hours whacking balls into a golf net.
    Hope things improve for you, control the controllable and fuck the rest.

    Sorry, I don't know your personal circumstances but do you do any exercise? I find exercise and healthy eating has kept up my energy

    That's flimsy, at best. Let's not politicise people acting like entitled fucking bell-ends.
    It's a bit like a "well, a bloke said in the pub"...

    Try to set yourself things to do. Read that book you have been meaning to, Learn a skill from YouTube, not an easy situation for you, or indeed many people for that matter. Most important, try and maintain a positivity. Have a chat with your wife and calmly tell each other how you are both feeling. Problem shared etc. Obviously these are mere platitudes but as is my new mantra, stay strong and safe.
