Great, that makes me feel a whole lot better. Did you qualify in clinical psychology, psychiatry or both?

Or maybe you are one of those that thinks specialists are over-rated and would quite happily perform your own aortal by-pass.

There will be many people on this site, possibly the majority, affected by mental health issues. Your statement is unthinking, uncaring and inappropriate.

Indeed it is. It's also complete, utter and total bollocks.

My statement is an opinion. Take it or leave it. If it has any influence on how you feel, especially considering it wasn't aimed at you, that's for you to internalise.

Your reaction does demonstrate my point though. The world really has gone soft if such an insignificant expression of an opinion (by a stranger) can provoke such strong sentiment.

It is a deeply unpleasant opinion and the pernicious nature of it is contributory to the types of problems we are discussing.

As you are new here you probably don't know that until recently I was working in mental health. Telling people to 'man up' and similar approaches can be very dangerous and is simply foolish. So I am pointing out that, yet again, your opinion is based on a completely flawed understanding.

My opinion is only that: your experience with mental illness isn't relevant to it. Even now that I know this, I'm not inclined to put stock by it.

You'd be much better served "Manning up" then worrying about my opinion on the matter.

Its great that you acknowledge your opinions are in no way based on any understanding of the subject matter

I just hope nobody accidentally takes them seriously

I thought he had retired. Then I saw him get whipped in Aus. He looked pretty stiff. So why tearfully retire then play? Guy needs a shrink and a p.r. man
