      “You set me up” might sound like a comedy, but so does ‘hello mum, got any spare home cooked chickpea curry before I shoot at you with a crossbow from an elevated platform on the vikings, whilst looking like your cousin’s boyfriend’. Can’t say I’ve ever dated a man that pulls out a hairdryer and set of straighteners and begins to apply cosmetic concealer before leaving to work on a building site. Not the most impressive behaviours or manners I’ve ever seen, but definitely something to complain about. The plastic Darwinian bust and narcissistic assertion of ‘knowledge’ over genuine introspection or contemplative curiosity was quite honestly the strangest and most traumatic experience yet.
      And although my text isn’t technically in keeping with the thread, I just thought I’d add it anyway, because I found a rin which seemed to chime with the peculiarity and difference of psychology.

      @io ciccio oh look, here comes an inbox full of it this morning, saying ‘I’ve just thrown eye over the balcony’ for Hollywood’s version of a mummy, oink oink and all that! I wonder if she can buy her children in the shops again today; maybe she’ll find them on the patch where you said you found them and won’t have to pay you any protection money? Nifty!
      Removing a bitch from the box, well I never, maybe there’ll be a new queen to replace the old one. Or better still…
      And What with all these Mattel Alfred Hitchcock barbies suing for mucky damages to their psyche, and hopes of what one’s to become, I must seem impervious to such kindnesses.

      @io ciccio yes, well I too wouldn’t choose a ‘scruffy homosexual activist’ as a farther, but clearly someone did and then tried to repeat the error yet again, in a worsened diabolicalism!
      There’s no need to write with so many capital letters, as though you were pretending to be a screaming peasant, or akin to Paul Burrell; and I don’t live in a palace I’m afraid, so I’ve no idea why you’d dump these things on my doorstep perpetually, when I’d previously sat quietly minding my own business.
      I’m not sure who’s ego you seem to be insinuating, but that kind of narcissistic response clearly isn’t introspective? As you’ll notice in my previous comment, i wasn’t attempting to be a comedian, but had a genuine complaint, funnily enough about quality and TYPE OF PEOPLE, irrespective of rank, delusion, or behaving rancidly; as did you, it seems?
      And as you communicate over my shoulder with you’re labelling habits, y o ‘ur not looking like a national treasure at all, but just another bum chum with a fear of the lamp; hence feel free to scream out your issues and their reasons?
      And you question where my vocabulary originated, when I don’t skull-Fuck myself with shitty fiction books or a horrifically cacophonous trail of magazines or insidious snipe? Well, about that type of control and the status and emotion it asserts?

    One of the scariest things about depression is you feel so incredibly alone, and unique, like your the only one in the world that endures these horrific, stupid things. The huge gift Stephen Fry gives us, is the knowledge that we’re not alone, and maybe there’s a way out! What a wonderful man!

I think possibly I am too fucked to really change, yet I try and treat others as best I can. Maybe I might just make someone's day. So maybe you are alone, sorry for that. Yet, try to.make life as good as you can, for yourself and for others. Take care.

      @Dougy according to you, but why should I trust your opinion? Just about every religious person for the last 10,000 years has been sure that whatever religion they have is the truth, confident that they know what God or the Gods want. This just seems a bit presumptuous from my perspective. I just don't think its a good idea to trust people who claim to know what God wants. Whether they are standing in front of me, or they wrote it down in a book thousands of years ago, it just seems unlikely God would want me to trust people who claim to be speaking for God.

      @io ciccio Hi Io ciccio, I can see that you really value your relationship with God but it is also good to value a relationship with a person. God gives us friendships and then uses those friendships to teach us stuff e.g. the importance of kindness, how lovely it is to know a person with a lot of insight, the contribution that a practical person can make etc. God created a wide variety of people and we can gain a lot by humbly seeing what is of value in the gifts of their various personalities.

    Hello from New Zealand. Oh, Stephen. Your considerable talents having been shared with us for so long has made everyone who has enjoyed your humour & your disarming openness feel as though we know you personally. You have inspired so many people to plough ahead with being just who they are, right out in the open & to enjoy being their unique selves. To lose you, particularly from a personal decision to hurt yourself would punch a huge hole in our personal investment in you to the point where the grief of your loss would physically & mentally harm so many. Stay safe, be with those who love you, keep that wonderful mind creating & especially be good to yourself & stay. Just stay.

    Full marks to him for being honest and open about his mental health issues. Unfortunately for those of us not well off financially to be able to afford private and/or sustained care or be able to get to safe spaces getting real help through the NHS is now bordering on impossible. Massive waiting times, crisis teams not fit for purpose, local councils and politicians who simply don't care and overworked, often poorly trained and caring impaired staff.
    Not only is Mental Health treatment a postcode lottery in the UK but it's an out of date, badly staffed, resource lacking part of the NHS that is so underfunded it's incredible. I sincerely hope nobody reading this ever needs to rely on it for genuinely serious issues, it absolutely will fail you.

    I'd listen to Stephen Fry read the phone book, so this may not mean much, but I loved this interview, start to finish. What a combination of heart and mind. And this was my first encounter with Steven Bartlett. He also comes across as somebody you'd like to know. And he's got the skill to do a brilliant interview without getting in the way, as can happen so easily. Bravo.

Find anything to cling to, no matter how irrational. If you have nobody or you don't care anymore that you do, give yourself something, anything to keep going. Get help. Talk about it. If you've burned every bridge and feel like you can never change, give yourself some room to breathe and talk about it. You'd be surprised how many other people have been there.

    What comes out clearly from this interview is that Stephen Fry had, from early childhood, a definite feminine streak in his psychological reactions to his environment and their expression in his behaviors. One of the revealing traits was his prodigious facility with language; another his early distaste of physical exercise, competition, and contacts. That gave him the tools and the time to contribute to culture and the fine analysis of his feelings and preferences. Here, his confession seems to resonate much more with women than men, and rightly so. Something that is easy to check by just reviewing the comments. His personality and preferences developed along with the early structure of his brain (primarily his limbic system, the "center" of emotions) and the impact of his experiences during childhood and adolescence. All this contributed to the wonderfully complex development of his prefrontal cortex as an adult. And made him the media icon he's become.

    Really enjoyed this conversation. My stepfather was a legendary comedian in his day and suffered terribly with mental health issues. As a child, in manic mode he was the most wonderful person to be around and in dark, lost and lonely mode, he taught me so much about the human condition and the importance of unconditional love, good humour and how to stay alive when furniture is flying! I totally agree with the observation about a difference in the eyes..always present where there is an imbalance or childhood trauma. My autistic brother could always see the mood switch coming on, he would say, 'Look out, he's gone all black on us'. The same impenetrable stare that was in the eyes of someone who, many years later, almost removed me from this earth. I should have known not to open the door! 🤣 Anyway, thank you, it was poignant for me to listen Stephen, he reminds me of my stepfather in a lovely way.😘🎶

    My 13 year old daughter has recently tried to commit suicide and we then found she had been cutting herself too. We don't think she is manic depressive as she doesn't seem to have the manic side but we are still waiting for doctors to get us an appointment. We have talked and we try to understand and be there, but it's easy to feel frustrated. Not because we don't care or feel angry at her, but because with all honesty we don't know how to take the sadness she feels and we feel frustrated and useless...and basically a failure as parents. So far, the best we can do is keep an eye on her, talk to her, accept how she feels and be there for her. And try to smile when all you want to do is cry inside. To all of you who are feeling depressed or are with someone who is- the warmest of hugs. Its tough 😪

      If she happens to have naturally low serotonin at present, it's no more your fault than if she had naturally low insulin and was diabetic. We all have a 'weakest point' in our constitution.
      And the cutting might not just be low self-esteem or even trying to make invisible mental pain visible physical pain. It can also be 'self medicating'. By triggering the flow of endorphins that provide BOTH types of pain relief. (Stroking and cuddling to produce oxytocin is also effective. Rubbing someone's back especially. That's why parents instinctively soothe babies that way.)
      Diagnosis of bipolar can take time. Often depression is diagnosed first. And schizoaffective takes even longer. But be reassured. A lot of folk with any of these, get a medication mix that balances them for many years to a very good quality of life, full time job, study, marriage etc.
      I pray things improve for you all.

    Great interview! I was curious about Fry’s life patterns. They are very unique, so I looked up his birth chart and the transits that were happening around the time of his “getting lost” episode - I believe it was around June 1993. (I’m an amateur Astrologer). It was indeed a very intense time for him. He has an intense birth chart anyway. My suggestion is for him to look into his patterns with a professional astrologer. It would be of interest to him.

    Stephen. I have such enormous respect for you and the way you carry yourself in your life. Many of my close family including myself have suffered mental health issues. My son's father and my son suffering in a similar way of course their personalities with their own unique style. It takes an enormous amount of energy to traverse the highs and lows. My son telling me that I don't understand the physiology of it which is true as we are afflicted differently. His heart races at the mere thought of social performance as far as interaction with humanity
    It can be exhausting. For me a lot of it is derived from these silly religious stories having been thrust upon me. My respect for Hugh is deepened by the friendship you obviously both share and I imagine the support he has shared. I tired to think of an an acronym for CEO and couldn't think. I think of one.The next thing I heard was ,*back to jail*. My heart sank. Of course my brain has a wonderful way of weaving bits of information or story into infinite possibilities so goodness knows what happened. Do remember to turn the microphones off though as some of us do have a ridiculous sensitivity to sound. Have a pleasant Christmas and a festive new year to you all. OXO. Hoping that all is well in your world. BE WELL.

    He is spot on about not being able to share depression with most people who would consider themselves “there for you”.
    Most people freak out at the words suicide or depression and get angry at you for your sadness. It’s so lonely being manic- depressive. It’s impossible to explain or describe, but it just takes over and suddenly you forget what normal feels like.

      It's difficult to find an accurately honest way to discuss any thoughts even in the neighborhood of the dreaded "S" word. Even when you're not literally planning or contemplating acting on it, just desire a truthful and honest discussion about the inevitable dark & intrusive thoughts I believe EVERY human being has, laying out the merits or doubts within the existential crisis and dread which any self aware and thoughtful person unavoidably contains without the paranoia & fear of a permanent stigma, or a professional fulfilling an "obligation", . . . In a simplified nutshell, how to approach an honest and mature conversation without fear of being hospitalized or immediately considered a threat. Which would only make one's state of mind even more difficult, pushed toward further isolation & then potentially at risk. But because certain individuals have acted, and it is too real of an issue for many, it's a nearly impossible subject to bring out into the open unless your already in like minded company. So many taboo and culturally challenging subjects which need to be discussed and pondered over, but with the understanding that one is not necessarily advocating them or wishing to be associated with them. Just desire open and uncensored discourse or analysis.
