Rage and frustration: I sent a letter to the local paper yesterday, by email, and of course today's the day the newsagent fails to deliver the papers. I've got the staff to ring the newsagents, but it's hard work getting them to move their posteriors

ASHTORETH Now where were we? Oh yeah - I mean I've had this disorder for nearly 36 years, and seen shrinks in their dozens over those years, and this is the first time I've had that diagnosis. So it must be rubbish. Like I say, I can get a bit OTT sometimes but it's never seriously interfered with my being a reasonably well-functioning human being -

Oops, please put the word "change" into clause 1 of the prayer

Another mass shooting in the USA. Forget the Consutution. Forget unseemly debates about mental illness. The problem is that a large number of law-abiding Americans like being tooled up. That isn't going to change any time soon, and so neither will their gun law. They have to live with a massacre now and then, just as we have learnt to live with the death toll on our roads as the price of mobility. A prayer of St Francis: "Lord, please give me the courage to the things that can be changed, the resignation to bear the things thst I can't change, AND THE WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE"

Spoke to my son Sam THE SURGEON last night. He says he doesn't trust Psychiatrics to send a letter of referral (as distinct from THINKING they've sent one ) but neither does he trust Dermatology to receive one. Without wanting to comment on Sheffield's Dermatology department, he states that it's common practice in the NHS nowadays for speciality clinics with high levels of referrals of people with conditions thst won't kill them to bin letters of referral and say they never received them. This is to massage their figures
