Still alive!

You have probably noticed the lack of On This Day history posts (if you haven't then you haven't been paying attention!).
Apologies but mental health issues have taken front row in our life, and I've been holding the Feral family together with string and band-aids.
I hear duct tape is better but for some reason the offspring won't let me wrap him in it...!
I hope to get back to the history blatherings as soon as I get a minute to scratch myself (no lice or fleas will be harmed in the aforesaid scratching) and I hope more people are able to get the mental health assistance they require.
Cos we all know how utterly broken the mental health system is.
Please remember - if it was a physical injury everyone would openly talk about it and understand, yet mental health is still just as debilitating but is not openly discussed or understood, with the damned stigma of shame still attached.
It's 2018, not 1918.
Let's lose the damned stigma!


  1. Sorry to hear of your troubles and I hope things improve soon.

  2. Very glad to see you back, and so sorry for the reasons for your absence. We have made some tiny steps towards removing the stigma and strides are needed.
