I don't feel mental

Posted on November 25, 2011 at 11:44am 0 Comments

I'm lucky I suppose. I don't feel like there's anything wrong with me. Other people sometimes tell me there is. But from the inside I feel like I'm doing fine. I'm functional.

 

I mean, I have my "things". Like I feel uncomfortable hanging clothes on the line using two different coloured pegs, or cooking while someone else is in the kitchen, or being in my lounge with more than four other people, or making small talk with people on the street...

Your sins are forgiven

Posted on November 20, 2011 at 8:30am 1 Comment

I sat through so many RE lessons in school. And by RE I mean Catholicism. We would read Good News Gospels and if the existence of other world religions was mentioned I must have been off sick that day.

 

Anyway. It always used to puzzle me that the Gospels made a big deal out of how angry people got when the Jesus character would say "your sins are forgiven." I didn't understand what the fuss as about, and it was never addressed in class - possibly because it would involve…
