Without sharing a little of the backdrop, and some of the thoughts that inspired it, this film risks being misunderstood.
My last day as a doctor was on 20-1-20.
I had 20/20 vision for a relatively short time!
It was at Secondary school that my visual acuity deteriorated: initially without me noticing. I was then a pupil at Firrhill High, a large comprehensive school in Edinburgh.
I was never bullied at school. I was popular and had support from the ‘toughest’ of classmates despite my gentle nature. Even ‘Thug’ befriended me!
I have always been open and willing to ask questions.
I am not sure why, but it was only in my mid-late period as a doctor that I faced bullying. Such that by 20/20 I could take no more.
Psychiatry determinedly offers ‘insight’. Might it be silly, perhaps even mad, to consider this as 20/20 acuity?
