The situation with Terry reminds me of an episode in my childhood bourne of fear, frustration and bad advice. When i was about 13 I went through a really bad time with a couple of lads bullying me at school. Im not e xactly a shrinking voilet and have never been called thin or small but lets just say both of these guys had fully grown beards at 13. After a couple of weeks being beat sh*&less by these guys i finally spoke to my dad about it and hoped for some little nugget of wisdom or incredible plan to stop my practice shaves with my new friends holding the razor blade..
his advice was.... "find the biggest one and punch him in the nose"
Brilliant! obviously my small brain was unable to come up with that on my own... Needless to say if i had followed my fathers advice i would probably be living in a box at the back of a shop with a snooker ball in my mouth. I just remember the feeling of helplesness and being angry not just at the bullys but at the complete lack of help, advice or wisdom available to me. Watching TP's program I feel i can see the same feelings crossing his face but with much, much more gravity of course. I like the way he has affronted this desease and i admire the way he has taken advice from people he respects but continues to try and find his own way to beat the desease.
For me i didnt punch the 6" teenager i just found a way to take the piss out of him that much that he was forced to leave me alone. But for terry i cant help but think of my dads advice and hope that he gives this desease and peoples opinion of it a bloody nose!
i firmly belive in judging no one until they eventually prove they are an arsehole
