Michael’s Advice.

The most valuable piece of advice anyone ever gave me came from a nurse called Michael in psychiatric hospital. He wore tinted glasses and had a loud, biblical voice. At that time I had been ill with M.E for more than a decade, and it had made me acutely depressed. He said all of us have a cross to bear. For a child in Africa it may be that they do not enough to eat. Other peoples crosses might be smaller, they may be bigger, but your illness is a cross you have to bear. If you don’t come to terms with it you end up in places like this. Or worse.

Perhaps we all need a Michael in life, to remind us, that few people are lucky enough to lead an unblemished life …..’Crosses to bear’ are for sure, different for all of us …..
I’m just glad that you met him and he influenced how you deal with your long standing illness .
