Spot on. :thumbup: Anything that helps has to be a good idea, whatever it is.

There is still a massive stigma attached to anti-depressants, and to mental illness in general in this country. A lot of people feel ashamed of it, and that only makes things worse.

I'm taking anti-depressants, and my grandmother is always asking "what're you taking them for? You don't need that rubbish". Yeah, great help that is.

I know and that's a shame, because being clinically depressed is just the same as any other illness or injury... and if you suffer one you need treatment. Simple.

If you had a broken leg nobody would have any problem with going to the hospital for the right treatment for that problem: the pot, the crutches, etc.

If you're depressed, you get the best treatment for that and you get counselling and antidepressants instead.

It's exactly the same thing.

It's a common misconception that it's not a proper illness and that's not a proper treatment, but there's a lot of ignorance surrounding the subject, and it's not helped by the rubbish spouted by people like your grandmother - no offence.

:lol:

I only came across it when visiting a mate up at Sheffield Uni a few years back. We were heading to a takeaway and it was raining. Some local guy with a cast on his wrist was shouting 'MY POT IS GETTING WET!' We were like 'wtf are you on about?'

The same guys then laughed at us in said takeaway for asking for a chip butty :lol:

So yeah, up North a cast is called a pot for some reason.

None taken mate, I've told her as much. The thing is the older generations don't see it as a proper illness, because in their youth it wasn't classed as such.

Former Burnley defender Clarke Carlisle has revealed that when he was hit by a lorry in December, he was attempting to take his own life.

In an interview with the Sun newspaper, Carlisle said he had been left severely depressed by the end of his football career, financial problems and the loss of a television punditry role.

The 35-year-old left hospital on 30 January, six weeks after being struck in North Yorkshire.

"This was my lowest point," he said.

Carlisle was chairman of the Professional Footballers' Association between 2010 and 2013 and remains on the PFA's management committee.

Born in Preston, he started his career at Blackpool and made more than 500 appearances for nine clubs in a playing career that spanned 16 years, finishing at Northampton in 2013.

Carlisle was airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary following the 22 December incident on the A64 Leeds to York road.

He had suffered cuts, bruises, internal bleeding, a broken rib and shattered left knee.

On Christmas Day he was admitted as an in-patient to a psychiatric unit in Harrogate before his release last Friday.

He said he had reached "an epiphany" that he is "incredibly unwell".

"I ventured out of my room not as Clarke the ex-footballer, but as Clarke, a mental health patient," he said.

"That was the first step in my road to recovery."

Carlisle, the first footballer to appear on Question Time, has previously spoken out about depression and suicide in professional sport and presented a BBC Three documentary on the subject.

In the interview, he said his wife Gemma had seen a "steady decline" since he left Burnley in 2012.

"I missed a sense of belonging, a sense of worth and value in life," he said.

"You see someone in the street and they'd say, 'didn't you used to be Clarke Carlisle?'

"I laughed the first few off but after a while it eats at your core."

Carlisle's wife Gemma has published a series of updates on her husband's condition on Twitter since the incident.

On Wednesday night she tweeted: "Clarke and I thought very long and hard about this over the last week and feel that as you all supported us so immensely through this ordeal you deserved the truth.

"We also want to highlight and create understanding for a lot of issues and feel it would be hypocritical of us to say nothing."
