Today had been terrible. Proper black hole terrible. This evening however I had a visit from a friend. One of the inner circle ones who know a little bit about my struggles. I guess you really know who your true friends are when they are willing to come to see you in this place. It probably helps that’s she works in mental health law and is therefore not phased by anything but her visit this evening lifted my mood beyond words and provided me with some hope for the future.
We chatted babies, men, inquests, the trouble with in laws and basically 2 hours where my head was filled with her encouraging voice and not my usual inner demons. She has no idea how much I needed that today. The hug she gave me when she left was sincere and actually made me realise that when I get out of here, I do have a local friend, who is awesome!!!
