People in Places

I need to thank the people who came to visit me in the hospital.

Pat and mom go without saying. Both made their support known loud and clear.

Brenda I had the feeling would be there if I wanted her. As soon as I made it known I did, she made the trek up to see me. Time and time again Brenda proves why she’s my second mom.

Jen came as a surprise. I wasn’t aware she read my blog, so the fact she found out I was in the hospital from it was unexpected. But she walked into that emergency room and ended up being there when I needed someone the most. She has been my friend since I was Thomas’ age and I’m glad nothing could change that.

While I’m at it though, I need to draw attention to 2 friends I made while in the hospital; Bella and Riah.

Riah and I are a lot alike and I think we’ll have a good friendship.

Bella. Bella. Bella. Have you ever met someone and gone “Oh Shit! this person is going to change and shape my life!”? Bella is more informed on mental illness than me. I learned probably more from her in those 4 days than I did the nurses. Some of the things she said are now key phrases to explain my existence. To top it off we enjoy hanging out and talking. I realize my mind has made her pure white. I’m just praying she doesn’t come crashing into the black too hard or too soon. I just feel she was meant to be in my life and she said the same.

I just love that new friend(s) feeling.

I’m going to a pottery party a week from this coming Tuesday at Brenda’s house. I’m stupidly excited.

Brenda’s Lab

Posted March 17, 2009 By kmarrs

Thomas informed me over dinner I should work with Brenda in Brenda’s lab. And I most assuredly miss working for Brenda in that lab. That’s the problem though, I miss Brenda, not working for another supervisor. Brenda’s lab is Brenda’s, whereas right now I’m in my own.

It would be so easy to work there again though. Aside from the lack of hours, there would also be lack of stress and I’d like that. I’ve even thought about it.

But no, I like having my own lab. I’m happy where I’m at, stress and all. I even enjoy being able to go OCD crazy on my own turf.

TK didn’t like that answer though.
