It's true that I didn't tell you about my depression in my first posting and of course I never expected you to guess that I had it. I am not saying I was discriminated against because of depression. I'm saying that most people immediately attacked me on the basis of my A-level results, ignoring completely the high grades that I am getting now. Logic would tell you that someone who had only attained Ds at A-level due to stupidity would never be capable of achieving As at university. But the majority of people ignored that logic and leapt straight to the conclusion that because I only got Ds I am too stupid or too lazy to get a first. Indeed, the fact that I have good reasons for underachieving at A-level is highly irrelevant to my point. Even if someone had got poor A-levels because of laziness at college, it would still have been wrong for any of you to come out and dismiss them purely on that basis if they were achieving high grades at university.
To eve_22, I would never wish anything bad on anyone. I did not mean it literally. I was merely illustrating my point which was that just as no-one would want to be judged solely on the basis of a mistake such as losing their job so too would I not want to be judged solely on the basis of my poor A-level results. And I'm afraid that was exactly what many people were doing. They were ignoring my current performance at university and judging me purely on my A-level results.
I won't apologise for arguing that it was wrong for people to judge me by my A-levels, but I will apologise if the way that I made my argument was offensive to anyone.
