Confessions of the Disordered

“If people do not understand you outrightly, do not worry; understand people outrightly and act with wisdom, courage and understanding”
― Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

I have been ignorant to the workings of the world. I used to believe that if you “understood mental health” that you understood it all, but it has become clear to me that things are not so simple.

People seem to find it easy to accept that depression, anxiety and eating disorders. It is okay to say “my depression/anxiety/ED is bad today”. What happens when it comes to a less well-known disorder?

Narendra ModiThanks, but no thanks. That would be the reaction of discerning missionaries to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s much awaited intervention in the ongoing discourse on tolerance and religious freedom. He has obliged them at last, but with a twist which negates much of the favour.

On the face of it, it would be a matter of immense satisfaction to the Church that the political head of a non-Christian secular country…
