Today is a big day for me.
I have now been out of a psychiatric hospital for a whole year. This is the first time since my first admission in 2011. In 2012 I mainly remember admissions, crises, and mainly how unwell I was. I remember 2013 as being the most disappointing year, but 2014, 2014 is different. It has by no means been an easy year but I have done well and made leaps and bounds of progress.
So this is my 1st anniversary of being admission free.
and to that I’d like to say,
“Well fucking done to me”
and give myself a personal high five, a pat on the back, and a celebratory drink.
