John is in his sixties. He lived with his parents until they passed away. They were old school, they went to their grave not knowing that he was gay. He felt he couldn’t tell them. He developed psychiatric problems including OCD, depression and hoarding. The referendum is far too late for him he believes. He only came out in his fifties. Feels being gay wrecked his life.
Several of john’s neighbours phoned in to say how brilliant a neighbour he is.
Other callers spoke about their mental health issues and gave some advice to John on the help out there.
