    I have sympathy for people with depression but I’m quite sure the people in Iraq are depressed about having their country invaded and the terrible cost of it . I’ll never forgive labour for brown nosing Bush .

    Exactly, there shouldn't be any shaming others. We're all struggling one way or another. Coming together increases strength. One day at a time. If that's to much, one moment at a time. Lending a hand or ear is a wonderful way to keep busy to defeat the darkness together.

    I only have to listen to Boris Johnson or Donald Trump for a couple of minutes before I feel that there is no hope for our world. It's an absolute nightmare!

    The worry and uncertainty that coronavirus brings, wrong on all fronts. This government and the complicit MSM sews fear and uncertainty, not a virus with less than 1% mortality rate.

    Do not allow negative thoughts to enter your mind for they are the weeds that strangle confidence.

    I wonder if the depression is severe guilt in advising Tony Blair to take us to war with the US in Iraq resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands and the continuing issues we have now with terrorism and ISIS
