A huge, possibly deliberate, misinterpretation of what I said.
It's clear from your posts that you absolutely despise me, and I get the impression that you are holding back a bit on what you seem to really think of me (maybe some of it is right mind), and I think that's clouded your thoughts on what I'm saying. I've tried counselling incidentally, with three different people. It's had a limited effect.
I've never claiming not working would make my life great or that it would remove my mental issues. It would give me the space and time to work on them though. Folk are often signed off work with stress or other illness for that very reason. I do think though that my life would immeasurably be better and I absolutely would be able to accomplish more and do more if I didn't have to work though.
You don't know what I currently do in my free time, or what help I'm seeking or have sought (as well as how effective or otherwise it has been), so I'm not sure how you can judge what I've made excuses for. No doubt, I've made excuses for myself in the past, but I haven't done that for a long time now.
In general though having more free time meaning someone can do more things is in no way a controversial point or somehow not true.
I think perhaps we disagree on the general point of working. That's fine; some folk like their work, some folk like the structure work brings, some like both, some don't like working in the slightest.
