How many times I have wished for the power to touch somebody and briefly let them see how bad I feel. If I had this superpower firstly I would use it on my GP, then my psychiatrist, psychologist and a few selected family and friends. And for good measure, the receptionist at my GP's surgery who scorns at me and my mental health emergencies, and one or two people in the supermarket making my day hell. Possibly to customer service people for gas, phone and electric companies as well and finally and most definitely to anybody telling me to "get over it" or "pull my socks up".

Wow that felt good. I was zapping away with that superpower there. I needed it badly today talking to the community mental health crisis team and the more I needed to zap the person not being very helpful, the more distressed I was getting.

What superpower do you wish you had in the fight against poorly mental health? An anti-stigma wand? An "I'm not lazy, honest!" ray? Or something less dramatic like jedi mind control or the vulcan death grip? Something for you to imagine when the next person who looks at you like you have two heads comes along!

Have a lovely day. May the force be with you.
