The man is clearly mentally ill, he should be being treated, not reastablished as another icon of the British celeb drug addict club, mind you the program is reprersentative of a large section of Britians broken society.

I prefer to look at his footballing career, particularly at rangers as im a rangers fan. He was one of the greatest football players ever to wear the shirt and i pray for the day we see a player of such quality grace our football field again. Theres only one Paul Gascoigne.

I used to be a surgeon but I became disabled and blind with MS. I had to retire from surgery and then for six months, went into psychiatry as the only clinical specialty that can be done with impaired vision. I have now left psychiatry partly because the patients in the inpatient setting have little or no insight into their symptoms and as they believe there is nothing wrong, are non compliant with treatment.The treatment is then forced on them with judicious use of the mental health actNot surprisingly they view us, the doctors and nurses, as the enemy. This provokes hostility and abuse, sometimes violent and sometimes very personal, i'm sure you can imagine the form it took with me being a wheelchair user. This aggression was by no means a daily occurrence but occurred often enough to be one of the reasons i am looking elsewhere for work.I think this clip of Paul Gascoigne could benefit many sectioned patients and help them gain insight, well done Paul, how incredibly brave of him. And well done you (Victoria) for enabling him to come out and say such important words. This is journalism at its finest. I have forwarded the link to the senior psychiatrists where i worked in case it could be used in a therapeutic and or educational manner. While i am here, do you have any suggestions for a career for me?!all the best, Peter Tue 24 Mar 2009 12:22:56 GMT+1 SocialEngineering http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/victoriaderbyshire/2009/03/facetoface_with_paul_gascoigne.shtml?page=60#comment6 I WONDER IF PAULS PROBLEMS STARTED WHEN HE INJURED HIS KNEE.DID HE HAVE A STEROID INJECTION.THERE IS A CONDITION KNOWN AS STEROIDAL PSYCHOSIS AND IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO FIND OUT IF PART OF HIS PROBLEMS COULD BE ATTRIBUTED TO HAVING STEROID INJECTIONS Tue 24 Mar 2009 00:19:05 GMT+1 alanrobinson1945 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/victoriaderbyshire/2009/03/facetoface_with_paul_gascoigne.shtml?page=50#comment5 Paul was a brilliant footballer and from what we know now he was unfortunately a terrible husband and father. Paul has to state this 'loud and clear' otherwise nobody will forgive him for his treatment of Cheryl and his and her kids.Come on Paul be a real Geordie - until you come clean about your bad behavoir off the field you will never be taken seriously again as a person.Paul, up until now I have always supported you as a 'clown prince' but now you must get to grips with reality and publically state that Cheryl and your kids were badly treated by you.A fellow Geordie Mon 23 Mar 2009 23:00:23 GMT+1 dostoyevskydan http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/victoriaderbyshire/2009/03/facetoface_with_paul_gascoigne.shtml?page=40#comment4 I thought the part of the interview I watched was handled very well both by yourself and Paul Gasgoine.I wish Paul all the best for the future.

I myself have my own battle with addiction & hearing Paul has been clean now for four months is somewhat inspiring! Thanks.
