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, and even with sometimes what they don't have.
Edna promptly jumped in to save Ralph. She swam to the bottom of the pool, pulled him out, dried him off and nurtured her husband from a terrible episode.
When Nurse Forth 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 mindedness !"
"But the bad news is, Ralph hung himself in your bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but your beloved is dead."
Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?'
Happy Mental Health Day and don't forget to read the signs along the way!
You too can do your bit by remembering to tell an unstable friend this tale. MooPig has done its part.
