Absent friends, here’s to them

Excuse my status as an absentee blogger- I wasn’t in London for most of last week, and to be honest, I’ve had little to say for myself, other than I’m thinking about learning how to use a crossbow so that I can personally acquaint myself with the staff of the DWP.  Emotionally, I’m going through a bit of a difficult time right now, and it’s nothing I find particularly easy to share. 

What I have wanted to say, though, while trying to avoid being sentimental or corny, is thank you to everyone who has emailed, commented and found me on Facebook to say lovely things about the play and to share with me their own stories.  I have been totally overwhelmed by the response.  The night before it was broadcast I couldn’t even sleep due to the dread that I’d be sought out and headbutted by the irate listeners of Radio 4.  So thank you for proving me wrong on that count.  I have thrown out my special helmet. 

Please be patient with me when it comes to responding; I have a few hundred e-mails to get round to at the moment.  I’m rubbish at the best of times with e-mails due to my appalling lack of organisational skills and my equally appalling memory.

  1. Every compliment is well deserved Seaneen. It was a really poignant piece.

    You’ve been conspicious by your absence, and it’s hard to know what to say. Just that I’m sorry that you have so many things happening all at the same time, it’s a huge amount to cope with. Take Care of yourself, and take it easy on yourself too, eh?

  2. I was very glad to hear the play and that alternate universe version of you (and she did sound remarkanly like you! expecially when she said things like “I understand squirrels!”). Enjoy your well deserved attention and try to turn it in some positive energy in your daily everyday life. Remember you were not just the ‘subject’ of a play written by another person, but its inspiration, which came mainly trough your ability as a writer. If anything, that should prove you what can you do and how you can touch the life of others.


  3. i’m one of the people who found your blog through the play and in turn i have shared a link to it with a bipolar friend who is now an avid reader too. its like ripples in a pond; once we start to share stuff about ourselves it empowers everyone. i hope the tough time passes. (((cyberhugs)))

  4. FINALLY got round to linking you from my blog today. Play was awesome. Made me weep. Felt twenty-two again listening to it. A+ and a gold star! Xxx

  5. I dont mind being called crazy, or even mad but I do object to being referred to as a Radio 4 listener.

    Make your on bread because it saves money, its therapeutic and healthy.

    All these organisations are groups are groups of self interested individuals. If Im in a scrape I always ask for a search as per Data Protection Act. Ive never had one back to this day but it sends the problem up the foodchain and they wish to avoid the work and any shit that it might throw up so they pay up within days.. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

    Your piece prompted me to look at the latast mind report. and whilst Im still not certain what they do it does list a great number of charitable trusts that are willing to give to mental health causes.

    I’m off too , not fishing but to Beatrix Potter country. Very nice but a little disturbing when you find the road kill wearing tiny suits.

    ~ To love someone is nothing,

    to be loved is something
