ALAN C. MILLER and JEFFREY L. Now the fever has begun to trickle down to players in the street. Last week’s 1News coverage showed a horse trying to climb out of a ring.Within hours of SAFE releasing those images on social media, it says, rodeo sponsors reported receiving hundreds of emails from members of the public.The case for the defence might include the fact that rodeo is based on bona fide skills, albeit skills that applied, and still do no doubt, more to the American West than New Zealand.

I have had depression for nearly 20 years. During that time, I have tried talk therapy, diet and exercise, and trying to “power through it.” While the former two have become an indispensable part of my treatment, the gaps when I have been off medication (for as long as several years) have only resulted in relapsing and falling back into that impenetrable fog that many of us know all too well. Please do more research before telling someone to get off their medication you are not their doctor, and you are not them..
