Ten Things of Thankful, Week 41/2018

Ten Things of Thankful, Week 41/2018

So I proudly join the TToT-community again. Let’s see what I can contribute:

  • I got home finally on Thursday after eight weeks of inpatient treatment. Even though this feels strange, I am very sure more therapy wouldn’t have helped me more. Good timing, I think.
  • Therapy has not always been easy, but I feel well prepared for life and like how my mind feels right now.
  • Our dogs greeted me very warmly after seeing me rather sporadically for two months. It may have helped I brought treats, of course😀. But it’s good they didn’t forget me. It’s so difficult to explain to animals a human has to leave for weeks.
  • Our cat also quickly got used to me being home again – one human more to boss around, but she also has been very cuddly since then.
  • My husband and I celebrated my homecoming with a very nice evening at a Thai restaurant. These times were it’s just the two of us doing something nice definitely have to happen more often. And I have many good ideas!
  • My husband was finally able to go on a long fishing trip. He wanted to this in summer, but couldn’t go because I went to the hospital. I am glad the weather is still nice and hope he enjoys it very much.
  • I took a long walk today. The weather was sunny and warm, and it relaxed me so much.
  • While walking, I met several people doing the same. Everybody was in a very good mood, we all smiled at each other. This is rare in Germany😁.
  • Now that I am home I am free to choose what I eat… Believe me, eight weeks of bland hospital food made me long for fresh fruit and salad! How are you supposed to get healthy when all you eat is processed food?
  • At first I was afraid leaving the secure environment the hospital created would leave me feeling insecure and afraid, but I was lucky and adapted very quickly.

  1. I’m so happy you’re enjoying being home with your pack. They are happy too. I’m glad your husband is enjoying his fishing trip.

    Hubby and I have dates all the time. It’s a good thing to do. Just the two of you.

    Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

    1. Thanks. My depression really put a strain on our marriage. This can’t be changed, but we can enjoy the good times. I like the idea of having dates on a regular basis! Have a good week!


  2. This sounds lovely, like things are going well.

    You are so right about hospital food. Since i am vegetarian, the last time i was in the hospital i asked for vegetarian meals. My first meal i knew i was in trouble — a white bread with processed cheese sandwich, so unhealthy!
