Hope you all get this sorted ASAP , horrible horrible thing to have to go through , it might be a tough thing to watch but there has been a series on BBC about mental health and it seems as though a lot of it concentrates on younger people , not sure if it will help you or not ....

Thanks mate , it is a horrible thing , my son is getting counselling sessions now , hopefully these help find the underlying cause, poor lad has been through too much already for a 12 year old .

Great video, you should encourage them (if you haven't already) to make more. Just talking. It helps. Easier for people their age to locate with too.

Pride of the North East, things like that renew my faith & hope in people. They will do well :thumbsup:

They sound like they come from not too far away from where I am from, Spennymoor.

I am nearly 300 miles away now and complete with a London accent :D I still visit as I still have some family there, I have also lived in Ferryhill, Metal Bridge, Coxhoe and Bishop Auckland. I went to East Howle school (probably long gone now) & Coxhoe school in 60's and was only recently telling somebody about how my uncle used to take me & my brothers to school in a sleigh pulled by his donkey when the snow was very bad :) The Top Hat & sin city in Spennymoor in the 70's are still great memories for me, but probably before your time. I still often think of moving back there.

I remember their Leyland Leopard red & cream coaches, I use the A167, left at the coach & horses on the way into Spennymoor.

counselling again yesterday , got onto the subject of alcohol / alcohol abuse , opened up and she was amazed at how much I used to drink and couldn't believe I had gone cold turkey ( I know your not supposed to ) , I could quite easily get through an 18 pack of strongbow if I wanted to , not clever I know , as you may have guessed I was using alcohol to mask a lot of what has been going on before the pneumonia , now that I am free of the evil stuff I can see what was going on , and to be honest I am ashamed of what I was when I was drinking , anyway , that has gone now , only got a holiday to take and get through that and I will be rid of the stuff forever , which brings me onto the lack of sleep , the psychologist very much thinks I was using alcohol to basically anaesthetise myself into sleeping , and the more I think about it I was , so now i'm not drinking I am finding sleep very difficult to get although it is getting better , and lastly for now , the last couple of days I have been feeling very euphoric if that's the correct word , it feels as though everything has opened up and I can see the wood for the trees again , I don't know whether that's the tablets finally working or the counselling or what but I feel great mentally at the moment , albeit a bit tired , anyway , enough rambling , i've got pizza to eat !!!!
