Forgot to say, apologies to my last reply to you in previous thread. No excuses for me being a ****, but I was neither sober, nor sane. Life collapsing stuff and have kinda used this board as a venting place to express my anger and frustration for a while, but there are real people here and no excuses for me being unpleasant.

This sort of thing drives male, suicide, schizophrenia and other violent acts.. least I can vent off here in this forum without my manhood being questioned

They even used the "because you are a health professional" line on me. As if to say Doctors & nurses run on energizer batteries and we never get tired.
Yep, I don't enjoy that phrase either. Or the lack of support for men.
