    All seems fine. I have never to my recollection had any mental health issues on my record or before. Only thing I have to worry about is my ingrown toe nails both of which have been removed, luckily no further issues so should be in the clear!

    Is your head of faculty a qualified Docter? No?
    Well they can go outside and have a chat with themselves.


    It just seems that college isn't sitting with you. I hated school, and I hated college. I just wanted to get stuck in and get cracking with things. But unfortunately education is a must.

    Depression is a long term medical condition.
    Sadness is not a medical condition.
    Grief is not a medical condition.
    Frustration is not a medical condition.
    Boredom is not a medical condition.

    "Depression" is a term that gets through around like some kind of label or as if it's some cure by saying it. I won't start a rant about the whole mental health issues and how it's dealt with by the NHS or people.

    If you find talking to someone helps, then do it. But just because the thought of being stuck in a college all day doesn't excite you, doesn't mean that you are depressed.

    At the risk of sounding like one of those annoying announcements beloved of radio and TV continuity announcers:

    I would probably enjoy college a lot more if they had your kind off attitude!

    Spot on. There is a fixation in society with putting labels on things and the glue is stickier than most imagine possible.

    I'm just bumping this thread as I've had a few queries on this issue of late and I think it's a timely reminder.
