AMAZING BREAKING NEWS. The US lady gymnast has made a miraculous recovery & will be taking part in the beam final. Obviously not treated by the NHS where there is a 10 month wait for an abortion!

Depression is ghastly and can be debilitating, ordinary people normally go on til they break. Then there is no treatment -other than dubious pills with plentiful side effects- until they might get to see a cognitive therapist for 5 sessions after waiting a couple of years and being crushed further.
