109. Officially Discharged!

Today I had my last cup of lunchtime soup in the psychiatric hospital.  I have officially been discharged.  I’m so grateful to my nurse and psychologist for today, because I almost bottled it.

I was teary and terrified before returning to the ward, and I really wanted someone to say: “Just stay a couple more nights”, but these amazing professionals know what they are doing. I needed them to be strong for me today.  I needed them to be realistic and hold some optimism on my behalf and that’s exactly what they did for me.

“So are we going for discharge”; asked a lovely psychiatrist (whom I’d met with for the first time today).

“Reluctantly yes”; I mumbled.  It was the reassurance from the staff that gave me the strength to say those words, and sitting here now at my kitchen table; watching my little man being mischievious and knowing that I have the support of my OH, I’m so glad they did.

It’s a long road ahead but just take it one step at a time Loopy.

On paper I have the perfect life, good career, supportive and loving partner and a beautiful little son. But today I want to die. It’s time to set my thoughts free. Come along with my daily mental adventures and gain insight into warped thinking and it’s hazards and maybe support me along the way.
