The Findings and Thoughts of a Newly Released Inpatient

  1. Toilet seats are very underrated.
  2. Oh shower with temperature control I love thee…
  3. AND I don’t have to dance around to keep it going.
  4. Sleeping in is a simple pleasure.
  5. There’s food that tastes like something I would want to eat here.
  6. Windows and doors that actually open are fantastic.
  7. Fresh air has never felt so good! 
  8. I can even do my own tea the right way. In case you need clarification on this: water, teabag out, sugar THEN milk.
  9. The reality of having more than the same two options every day for lunch is mind blowing.
  10. Toilet paper in the real world is so soft!
  11. Go out? Now? Brilliant!
  12. Watching something on TV at the same time as everyone else rather than slumping over iplayer is doing wonders for my Twitter life. 
  13. Space to dance around in is a good use of space.
  14. Support workers? Who have time to support? Wow.
  15. Having free reign of my phone feels so good.
  16. It’s a pain having to walk more than a couple of meters to see a doctor.
  17. The real world is a lot calmer than the inside of a CAMHS unit.
  18. Bedroom access is useful during the day for quick naps or picking up forgotten items.
  19. Space to hang my clothes means I don’t have to work the crinkled bag look.
  20. And just the knowledge that I’m no longer in hospital is pretty amazing in itself.
