“Anxious I consulted my doctor.

This was 1997.

I was started on Seroxat (Paroxetine). In America this is Paxil.

Today (2014) I am still on Seroxat/Paxil (Paroxetine)

17 years: this has indeed been a “powerful embrace”.

After I made this film (in 2011) several of my consultant psychiatrist colleagues expressed concern. I had apparently brokered acceptable boundaries; my thoughts were loose and I was misguided, perhaps even “disordered”. Label upon label was how it felt to me.”
