Four sleeps and I am going home. What does this mean for me. It means continuing with my recovery. It means challenges. It means I will be home with my family. It means I more than ever need your continued support and understanding.
As I have said in an earlier blog; 'you can't unring the bell'. This was something I read in someone else's blog so I can't lay claim to this and it is quite a common saying. Now that it is out that I have been in a psychiatric hospital for several months it means some people, many people or perhaps nobody will be alert for nutty behaviour or maybe not.
Please don't do this. I am as 'abnormal' as anybody else. Seriously really who is normal, what is normal and do you really want to be considered normal? I know I don't. The thing is I will be just the same as before. Maybe a little fragile at first.
Please do not feel the need to tiptoe around me. Talk, act and laugh as ever before. I am the first to make jokes about myself and my 'visit to the loony bin'. Ok - so yes you can't unring the bell but you don't have to listen to it's ongoing vibrations. You can just choose to accept.
Over and out
