    What is even worse than the fact that there is so much tulip service is that people think you are mad for mentioning it.

    At last clientco one of the people on the "help" line spent the whole morning telling anyone who would listen how "rude" the person was who had sent her an email that contained the phrase "you haven't answered the question I was asking".

    The only thing that helps me rein in my disgust is the fact that I reflect that perhaps, just maybe, I might not be 100% perfect al delivering a great service at all times

    But I agree with everyone - things are flaming shocking an unreasonable amount of the time.

    I'm not surprised, felt anxiety reading your post with everything that's going on in your life. How is it possible to have any structure when there's so much chaos? And if you don't have structure, your circadian rhythms will be messed up, which affect your mood.

    Stop everything and take care of yourself first. Nothing is more important that your health.

    Forget CBT.

    I highly recommend:

    Soulstream Hypnotherapy with Tricia Maitland | Solution Focused Hypnotherapy in Bath, UK

    Just to note that you are not ‘hypnotised’ per se. More you go into a state of deep relaxation.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I think its because the latest generation of Brits have had an appalling education.
    It's because with a few honourable exceptions (including myself) we're a nation of penny-pinching cheapskates.

    If almost everyone insists on buying the cheapest, regardless of quality, then it's a race to the bottom and everything ends up tulipe.

    carp I'm almost agreeing with spooter

    you are a worthy, ignore the muppets and just get on with it.

    Most people don't mean to get on your tits they are just too stupid to stay off them.

    Family & love are the things that are important, you won't get any of those from the feckwits.

    You're talking there about Suity right?
    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...
