Sean, thanks so much for this heartfelt response. BPD and Autism are particularly tough nuts to crack and I really feel for you. I've got plenty to say relevant to both believe it or not. I'll get there in time. And I agree that making others around you happy is a very important part of the meaning of life.
Thanks also to those others of you who wrote such positive responses today. I was a little nervous launching this and felt it was something that I needed to do nonetheless. It's clear this is something that has touched many of you or those around you. The friendly responses to this effort are so encouraging. I don't want to lead this list deeply off topic by posting in a great deal of detail here. However if you want to engage on the channel itself with comments, feedback and questions either now or on future videos, I'll be very happy to respond on there as much as I can. Thanks again for the feedback and for being the community that you are.

I just watched the intro video and will continue to follow the channel with deep interest. As you are very likely aware, I have battled, often unsuccessfully, with 'clinical' depression and more recently been diagnosed with BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) and Autism. I recently found out that BPD is the most discriminated against condition on the planet - which is nice! Health Insurance costs up to 10 times more than any other condition. The stigma behind these conditions is what can perpetuate them if not checked or fought. The NHS just wrote me off their books a year on since my last big incident. They have to do that though, I understand it's not their fault. But, in the last year, I have learnt a lot. I have learned the Meaning of Life! It is simply 'To Make Others Around You Happy'. Helping others is helping yourself. Showing interest in and care for others is really important. And so-called 'social media' is deadly and abusive. It is far, far better to get to know people up close and personal than via a corrupt intermediatory. I am extremely grateful to all those on this group who supported me and put up with my behaviour. It will never be forgotten. Also to those closest to me for all they have done, especially my wife of 24 years, Judith. I wish you all the success you deserve for both overcoming your conditions and in maintaining your business. A good example to follow!
