â€˜So you spend the nights listening to music?â€™
â€˜And thinking. Does my head in, thoughts going round and round. Dope stops it. The medication sort of does a bit, but not the same.â€™
2006, Claire Taylor, quoting â€œDonnieâ€, Young People in Care and Criminal Behaviour, page 121,
I just want to get out there to me bird really...â€²cos she donâ€²t want me in here all the time, itâ€²s doing her head in. Itâ€²s doing my head in. It didnâ€²t used to do my head in, it used to be like care, if you know what I mean, when I first started coming to jail. It used to be like â€˜yeah, Iâ€²m back in careâ€™ kind of thing.
2011, Giorgio Pin, An Interesting Life, page 75,
The endless hours spent in my cell did my head in. With my diagnosed mental illness I find it shocking that I should have had to endure this.
