I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment.

Today I was discharged, and that brought a close to the long intensive part of my treatment. Next step is Maintenance, which is done as an outpatient, and is a lot easier. For months I’ve been treating this moment as something to aim for, and it really hit me today how special it is to have reached it.

I’ve probably downplayed to myself a lot of what I’ve gone through, and I suppose that being discharged from my last definite inpatient stay really made me realise just how big a thing it is to have made it this far.

So I’m a bit dazed, and will post again soon.

    Congratulations! I hope you’re doing something exciting and joyful today and making the most of it.

    (By the way, Maintenance sounds like something the little men at Jesus college would do (though I’m sure it’s much more important than that)).

    You know we all think you’re very brave, and we love you. And we always will.
