    I've always shut myself away, I don't really know any other way. I just don't feel completely comfortable around people unless I've known them a long time.

    Pf, my pain is recent. It's my social anxiety that causes the problem. And it's even worse because naturally I'm a people person but his illness just strips away who I really am

    I wonder if it is a part of modern life? In the 1980s when we had the rise of the yuppy, there was a lot of illnesses connected with that way of working and it was just a burn out from working too hard.
    I wonder if we expect too much from ourselves and feel bad when we dont achieve things we planned so just withdraw. Life is too stressful and i know i find it hard coping with day to day things and the hobbies i have and enjoy are ones that involve spending time on your own. Modeling and writing. The film really has left an impact on me and i feel so sad for the way this condition effects people.

    In my case, not. My Drs are confident my MH is genetic. And I'm not sure yuppies were responsible for triggering everything for me at aged 16 .

    It is becoming more and more a modern phenomenon.

    WHat i meant paula was that a lot of illness became related to Yuppies. Especially cronic fatigue and the
    high stress levels.

    I think it's more to do with people admitting to struggling and Drs actually listening. Think of laudanum being given to high society women who suffered with their 'nerves' or all those people in he 50s addicted to the 'little yellow pill'. It's always been there, just hidden

    And actually a breakdown of society which has left people trying to cope on their own for too long...

    I can see your point paula. Men are beginning to open up more about their Mental health and it is not such a stigma anymore but there needs to be more doing to make the younger adults more aware of their feelings. I am sure the bar manager who was mentioned in that film did not have any inclining that something might be wrong. It just appeared suddenly.
