Being Proud at 40

Of course the current situation for disabled people is not perfect, and I have made it my life's work to play my part in improving matters in any way I can. But if we forget to celebrate our achievements and the sheer wonders that now exist for many disabled people, then we can not move forward, remaining stuck in our own resentment.

Imagine Always Eating in Full View of Others!

The most awful part of eating in secret or when no-one else is watching is the shame. When you're ashamed you want the ground to open up and swallow you or crawl under a rock and never come out. It's like when you can't shake the feeling that you've done something horribly wrong.

In a visit marked mainly by quietness and enquiring looks, I spent part of the Easter weekend with an older relative who struggles to connect the adult I've become with the child she'd always known. In her mind, I'm still away at university - fixed forever in a time which, in her mind, defines me.

I am not a trained dog coach. I approach dogs from a soul-searching and creative angle. In overcoming my dog phobia by painting their portraits, I came to realize how sensitive they were. Having lived with several dogs and taken care of them at the Friends of Animals rescue center in Athens, I've learned how to live in the present.

It's the Fact That Suicide Is So Highly Stigmatised That Underlies the Unhelpful Response

Steve Annett | Posted 20.04.2014 | UK
Steve Annett

I am convinced that it's the fact that suicide is so highly stigmatised that underlies the unhelpful response that suicidal individuals often evoke from others. After centuries of being branded as sinful, the shame and guilt attached to suicidal thoughts, feelings and actions have a powerful persistence. More than 50 years after suicide ceased to be illegal in the UK we continue describing those who take their own lives as having 'committed' suicide, as if it were still a criminal act. It's little wonder therefore that those who fall victim to this distressing and life threatening mental health issue tend to keep their darkest thoughts and feelings to themselves.
