At work on Tuesday morning I could over hear a conversation between two women, one aged 22 and the other late 40’s and what really upset me was the comments from the one aged late 40’s.
They were talking about depression and in particular bipolar disorder and how it was a fancy name for being a looney. I found this comment very upseting and lacking in their understanding of depression and how hard life can be for some people.
All I will say to them is please don’t complain when your train is delayed by someone taking their life. After all if you were more understanding that person may have been able to talk and seek help but with comments like yours that person did not feel they could seek help and felt so alone they could only do one thing.
Think about others before making stupid comments about matters you do not understand….
