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.

Kind regards,

Kevin

    Dearest Kevin,
    
    Massive respect to you for choosing, against the advice of your associates,
    to make this public. 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!
    
    All the very best
