It’s the irony that I love…

Read After Burnout

images-530A small exclamation mark has just appeared in my Sharing box. It’s telling me that I have no Facebook connection. 

The reason for this is so that my secret is safe on this blog. My stories are in plain view and are therefore hidden from sight. If anybody wishes to check on my wellbeing, they will have to come here; for the time being.

I have been reminded that having a few issues does not make you human. Having issues makes you a nut-job and nobody wants to employ a nut-job as it is bad for business. Even educators can no longer afford a cracked-up cuckoo in the nest.

My Red Badge of Courage is no longer a sign of my defiance in the face of the world’s outrageous sanity.

Instead it has become the sign of the leper.


Don’t touch, don’t read, and certainly don’t employ.

This is the story of what happened to me when anxiety took a grip. I lost my senses, I lost my job, and I lost me. I then turned to writing to find those things that had gone missing. How can you teach when you believe that education is a business that is failing in its primary remit of helping to create a better society? Indeed, how can you teach when you believe that you have nothing of value to pass on? The book/blog is the story of my recovery from the absolute darkness of the early days. It is an Odyssey through my life over the last twelve months and a retracing of my steps to discover how I found myself there. More than all of that, it is a re-evaluation and a rejoicing of all that which I call life. Happy reading and I hope it helps. There is madness, Everyday Madness, and not all of it comes from within.
