Mental Health Day...? (California)

Postby postscript2 on Sat Apr 11, 2009 12:55 pm

I didn't know it was "mental health day," until I opened yesterday's e-mails... Just proves where I'm at...


Ralph and Edna

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want
them to, doesn't
mean they don't love you with all they have. Ralph and
Edna were both
patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were
walking past the
hospital swimming pool. Ralph suddenly jumped into the
deep end.

He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him.. She swam to the
bottom and pulled
him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of
Edna's heroic act
she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the
hospital, as she
now considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I
have good news
and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged,
since you were
able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and
saving the life
of the person you love. I have concluded that your act
displays sound

The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with
his bathrobe
belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's

Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to
dry. How soon
can I go home?'

Happy Mental Health Day! You can do your bit by
remembering to send an
email to an unstable friend... Done my part!!!

LOL!! Sometimes the ones that seem "unstable" are more "stable" than the ones who label the "unstable". I remember one of my professors in law school telling me that before I go before a Judge or opposing counsel, to do a personality profile on them. Find out a little about their personal life. You will then have a heads up on how stable they really are. Me, I'm one of the "unstable" ones. :lol:

Sooo true! You may also note that some judges are in better moods after that 2 martini lunch... Great advice from your instructor. Justice isn't ALWAYS blind, some folks wear "shades" to fake it...

I used to refer to my last ER as "Dysfuncition Junction," as the ones that thought they knew it all, knew nothing at all.

"And the one on the 'right,' was in the 'middle' and the one in the 'middle' was on the 'left;' and the one on the 'left,' played the fiddle to the one who dropped the most coins in his hat..."

So much for my stability!!!

An emotional wellness day to me and individuals I know is simply not craving going to class. It's not being debilitated, it's trying to say that you're not up for going to class and taking multi-day to yourself to relax. There's nothing amiss with it. Individuals generally simply hang out and do nothing by any means. It's not something you have to do.
