Welcome to the NHS Mental Health Helpline.

If you have obsessive compulsive disorder, press 1 repeatedly.

If you have multiple personalities, press 2,3,4, & 5.

If you are paranoid, we know who you are and what you want. Stay on the line so we can trace your call.

If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a small voice will tell you what to do.

If you are delusional, press 6 and your call will be transferred to the mother ship.

If you have manic depression, it doesn't matter what you press, no-one will answer anyway.

If you have amnesia, press 7 and state your name, address, date of birth, telephone number, national insurance number and your mother's maiden name.

If you have post traumatic stress, press 8 very gently, slowly and carefully.

If you have short term memory loss, press 9.

If you have short term memory loss, press 9.

If you have short term memory loss, press 9.

If you have short term memory loss, press 9.

If you have bipolar disorder, please leave a message after the beep or before the beep or after the beep. Please wait for the beep.

If you have low self esteem, please hang up, our operators are too busy to talk to you anyway.

Rumour has it that this is what you actually hear if you dial the NHS Mental Health Helpline.

I've seen this before, but it's still funny.

Due to interview on wednesday, I won't be at badminton... and sam apparently has an aversion to trains and won't be there either ;)

I've cancelled one of the two courts for you guys.

Amusing, but two mistakes.

1. Manic depression and bi-polar disorder are the same thing.
2. Why would the NHS ask for a social security number when there is no such animal in the UK? It should be National Insurance Number.

Fixed the social security number nonsense. Bloody Americans.

I'm tempted to leave maniac depression and bi-polar disorder as seperate entries, as it's more funny that way.
