In 2012 I was really unwell – I was having a bad psychotic episode – and ended up in A&E. I told the mental health team there that I couldn’t keep myself safe and asked them to admit me. I was hearing voices telling me to set myself on fire in order to save the world. 

“It was terrifying. I really believed that tens of thousands of people would die unless I did what the voices said.

“The staff were helpful enough. But they said there was no mental health bed available anywhere in the whole north-east, so they sent me home. They said they would send the crisis team to see me, but not on which day or at what time. I was in crisis there and then. In fact the crisis team didn’t arrive for three days, by which time I had already been sectioned.

“When I got home I found a can of petrol in the garage and was standing there with it and some matches. I tried to get the lid off but couldn’t. That’s really lucky, because I planned to set myself on fire. If the lid had been less rusty I’d have done that. That’s how close I came to killing myself.

“It was a really frightening experience because I was so close to being dead. I was clearly very unwell and needed to be in hospital, but there were no beds.

“NHS care for people having a mental health crisis is really patchy. I’m lucky because I didn’t manage to kill myself and did end up in hospital and did eventually get help from an early intervention in psychosis team.

“But it shouldn’t be about luck. It should be about everybody in that situation getting the help and care they need every time.

Casual Reminders for people writing Junkrat and Roadhog

They are Australian/New Zealander

We do not particularly celebrate Halloween

We call it petrol not gas

‘Mate’ can be used to refer to people we hate, ‘cunt’ can be used on people we love.

Unless Junkrat is proven to be Australian Aboriginal, don’t just draw him with boomerangs and didgeridoos. There are many unique and different communities within the Australian Aboriginal and they deserve respect; not every community used boomerangs, do your research if you HC him being Aboriginal

Roadhog is heavily hinted at being a Maori New Zealander, an entirely different culture to Australia. Do your research.

Wheel is on the right side, not the left side

Dropbears are real

The number “501″ does NOT indicate that the T&G operated a fleet of 500 rail inspection cars such as illustrated.  Abundantly equipped with four marker lights - two each fore and aft- a four-square windshield and four-wheel brakes, this converted tonneau touring car with right-hand drive, outboard gear shift and a huge spot light for night driving appears to be giving the gauntleted lady driver a bit of trouble as it heels to the curve in the tracks at Coaldale.  Or does the trouble stem from the attentive, racoon-coated gent in the front seat or the well-bundled lady in back?  There’s no denying the extra five-gallon can of petrol anchored on the running board will assure their crossing the desert to Tonopah before reaching short supply.

ISIS executes 19 girls for refusing to have sex with fighters 

Meanwhile a UN envoy investigating Islamic State’s vile sex trade has said ‘girls get peddled like barrels of petrol’ and one can be bought by six different men.

She also verified a disturbing ISIS document which suggested the extremists sell the Yazidi and Christian women and children they have abducted, with girls aged just one to nine-years-old fetching the most money.

ISIS published 'price list’ of captured Yazidi, Christian sex slaves (above)

Pray for an end to this diabolical madness.
