 Iím not saying by any means all, but when I was in the psychiatric ward there were some really unpleasant members of staff. One told a group of us that if weíd been raped then weíd probably asked for it. We werenít even discussing it at the time, he just bought it up out of the blue. I was flabbergasted, but also a bit fucked up so I didnít do anything about it. I wished I had afterwards, but then whoĎd believe an unstable psychiatric patient against the word of a psychiatric nurse? He was one of the ward supervisors as well.    Another one told my friend who was watching some chicks in a nest in the tree that he was going to get a catapult and kill them. Another one told the same friend, who was upset after sheíd just had a hot cup of coffee poured over her by another patient, that she should stop being a baby and grow up. I witnessed the first two but was discharged before the third. Iím sure I could think of more as well. Being in there was horrible enough without the staff making it worse.Having said all that, there were some genuinely kind and caring people too.     
the summer is ended and we are not yet saved

^ That sounds awful. Sadly it doesnít surprise me anymore.

I wish I could say what prompted me to write a comment about this in the first place but I canít on a public message board. Letís just say it was concerning a large group of professionals in the area ignoring the ruling of an ethics board. I.e closing ranks and protecting their own.

^ I do mean Amy & I meant to post my previous post in the random disclosure thread. Although the more I watch the more annoyed I’m getting.

I agree, she was great & had an amazing voice.

Coming out of the Brit' School one would've hoped she'd be better managed.  :/

^ I guess when ever some people see money they donít care who they exploit, no matter how vulnerable they are. Oh itís just ended & that was so sad!

Trying to renew my passport online.   They are telling me I cannot do it online with an uploaded photo because my old passport is valid for less than ten years.   

The passport office will be hearing from me tomorrow morning. 

You need a different service
You canít use this service if your old passport was valid for less than 10 years. You can still apply online but youíll need to get 2 printed photos.

"You canít use this service if your old passport was valid for less than 10 years."

So you can use the service then.

I will query this because something is wrong.  I do not like my new passport photo.  Its vile so maybe i can get a new one done.  I know i am 10 years older than my old passport pic but even so it makes me look very ill and old and i went to a photographer.    To be fair he wasn't a professional photographer.  He was just a shop keeper offering a service.   Maybe i will go somewhere else for the photo after i have spoken to the passport office

Just spoken to the passport office and there is a fault with the system.  The system is not calculating passports correctly  so they said do it by post

 Buses. No matter how early or how late I try to get one every morning to work you can guarantee it never comes on time. The rain is also annoying me as well. In fact Monday in general has put me in a bad mood. Fck off Monday!   >:(
