COMMENT: Funding PTSD programme could end up saving money

Have your say

Christmas drinks with friends have taken two days of my life.

Work commitments meant Sunday night was the only night before Christmas that we could meet up.

We had the pub to ourselves and, as the night drew on, the seven of us were getting louder and louder.

By the time we had all bought a round each, it was definitely time to go. But two days later and the bitter was still having an effect on my head and my stomach.

I guess it just shows I’m getting too old for a ‘session’ with mates. All of us were useless at our respective jobs on Monday and added to the estimated £200m businesses lose in productivity nationwide the day after Christmas parties!
