So what he wants from his doctor (not really because he goes private and lives in Florida) is to be seen instantly and be given a make it all better pill. Everything else is, in his eyes, a bit poofy.

I could tell you a story about my ex mother-in-law having a heart problem without health insurance in the States. Basically she nearly died.

Within a month she had debt collectors on the phone for the tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills she owed.

However let's bash the NHS instead.

That actually sums him up. Whatever exists he must mock it. Never judge if it's good or bad, just mock.

Fetishised masculinity as the author Jake Arnott put it. Gangsters, squaddies and other "real man's men". There to provide vicarious thrills for suburban curtain twitchers. And all the women are mothers, tarts or harridans.

He really did top out at 14.

Loneliness is a terrible, terrible thing.
Successful trial to combat it?
Sneer sneer.
Loneliness. Where you find yourself turning on the satnav on a journey you know so it feels like someone is talking to you.... :(

You just need to pull yourself together.

Not sure that everyone immediately got it that this was not a throw-away line.

I've never done it before. What is worse is when I realised what I was doing... I left the satnav on.

I went through a similar phase during my postgraduate studies of needing to leave the TV on to fall asleep, because I could just about cope (badly) with not speaking to anyone from one day to the next during the day, but coupling that silence with nightfall was panic attack fodder.

This too shall pass.

Thank you for your support, my friends.

I'm reminded of a rather poignant 1920s wireless - related cartoon, which picked up on one BBC announcer's habit of signing off with "Goodnight, everybody" and then, after a pause, saying "Goodnight" again: it was, he said, to give people a chance to say "goodnight" in return. The cartoon in question is of an elderly lady wearing a night cap/bonnet, her hands clasped and looking at the loudspeaker by her bedside.
