47. Mefloquine Dispatches: Dun & Bradstreet (28th September 2004)

by Shane Granger

Being ‘triggered’ is part of my “thing”. I’ve only noticed it in recent years but on reflection it has been happening for a quarter-of-a-century. Just had one today. I’ll document to help explain things!

Here it goes…

I see a tweet via Luke Henriques-Gomes. This is the tweet:

Straight away and out loud I say this… “I fucking know Dun & Bradstreet”.

I’m better with memory work in 2022. I’m surprised by the date but only by one year (which for me is pretty good).

So, after the Australian Army sent me insane in March 1997, I struggled on for another 18-months, in the Army. Then I went very publicly insane again in October 1998. The Army decided after a long fight to give me an Administrative Discharge (effectively a Dishonourable Discharge) and fine me $500.

By the time I got this lovely letter from Dun & Bradstreet I was on struggle street.

Thank you for your service. Also, thank you Joel…
