Freddie Flintoff: Living with Bulimia (TV Movie 2020). 59m

“Iu0026#39;m a huge flintoff fan, think heu0026#39;s just an absolute legend, Iu0026#39;m a sufferer of mental health issues and have had weight related problems so I was really interested in this as I had no idea he had suffered. His emotion seemed almost edited to avoid showing tears or moments thatu0026#39;d hit the viewer. His conversations seemed almost interview like rather than bonding and it just seemed a bit mild. I understand heu0026#39;s suffered and thatu0026#39;s rough but I feel this was almost pointless, although great shining a light, it was just repeating the same few points and not really letting anyone in, he went from saying heu0026#39;d agreed therapy after 55 minutes of rejecting it, to ending with intending on it although sounded sceptical heu0026#39;d complete it. Just feel if your not going to fully commit to fully opening up or at the least committing to help then this show wasnu0026#39;t really that informative or important as it shouldu0026#39;ve been, Iu0026#39;ve met tens of sufferers with worse stories and harder lives who could inspire everyone but obviously as non celebrities theyu0026#39;d rather not use them as people donu0026#39;t care enough about real people but will for a celeb they like which is so backwards, not saying celebs donu0026#39;t deserve help but theyu0026#39;re not more important at all. Mental health isnu0026#39;t entertaining without celebrity, I love the guy and felt for him, itu0026#39;s never easy but literally all that was said was , itu0026#39;s harder for guys, heu0026#39;s got it under control, anxiety with food and vomiting. Repeated that with no elaboration for 56 minutes then finished saying heu0026#39;d signed up to see this dr, had an awkward fake chat which wasnu0026#39;t anything like real therapy then said he may not even do it. Hardly motivating or life inspiring constantly saying you can control it over getting helpu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e1) mental health shouldnu0026#39;t just be documentaries like Stacey Dooley or Louis Theroux like weu0026#39;re animals being studied for entertainment, talked about and not to, as much as it shouldnu0026#39;t just be celebrity journeys that get attention, Iu0026#39;d say 95% maybe higher wonu0026#39;t relate to people so rich they can get top docs, help, nutrition, support at the drop of the hat and possibly free.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e2) do this show with a real person who canu0026#39;t work due to suffering, who has relationships and responsibilities made so difficult by these journeys, whou0026#39;s income is stretched thin and canu0026#39;t afford anything other than nhs or the awful uk GP system of ignorance, then show them desperately looking for help to be put on waiting lists and left to rot unsupported for months if not a year with no chance of getting in quick for help or even seeing a top specialist. As much as people praise the nhs during these awful times prior to and during there are people drastically let down with fatal consequences. Decisions and red tape ruin lives, inefficient communication and care cost people quality of life. Even after waiting you end up one on one for an hour a week chat and sent away with computer printouts, before being forced into a group to cut down people waiting. Then in groups your neglected and all given the same chat even though 10 people have individual and different journeys.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThereu0026#39;s no acknowledgment of the real world here, for me I love the dude but canu0026#39;t rate this, these shows need to help, reduce ignorance and shine a light on a service so badly run that many lives are lost that couldu0026#39;ve been prevented by a bit more care and efficiency. Plus show the conditions as it affects the 95%+ who canu0026#39;t just randomly interview others and stroll into top specialists.”
