"The Monty Python Hospital - Except is not Funny"

I am sure most people will know the Monty Python Sketch where four men try and out do each other with just how bad there life is. "Down the coal mine at 3, me." Three? My grandparents had sent me down before my own parents where born etc This place doesn't understand one bit. Their consultants & Doctors just give you a load of bull ie, when I went there as my depression was getting so bad I tried to commit suicide three times. And what did this hospital do to me? They just belittled me. with stories of how bad their lives were. Er Hello? I thought this was supposed to help me over come my issues, not listen their nonsense and how bad their lives where/ If I want to be preached to - I will got to Church. If I want to feel totally put down - I will go on the Jeremy Kyle show This place is the worst hospital I have been to : I felt even more depressed after listening to their woes and miserable lives. Completely and utterly unhelpful.
