Ahhhhhhh….and we’re back to fiction.
I love fiction. One of my daughters is in the hospital with pneumonia right now, poor chicki. She is on the mend, though, so don’t worry. In fact, I expect that she will be out today or tomorrow! My mother-in-law got hospitalized as well, because the virus (which my entire family contracted) targets the lungs and is dangerous for asthmatics.
I believe it, because I have no history of asthma, but as I am writing this, my chest is tight. Uggggh.
Anyway, the one little tiny good thing in all this is that it has allowed for more than usual time to read. I love love love reading. So today I want to recommend to you a book that you can add to your reading list for the next time YOU have a sick day or some free time.
The past week on Betty’s Battleground has been all about mental health treatment…which is kind of ironic, because I am now being reminded how drastically different the treatment of physical ailments can be. I wrote about my experiences in the psych ward, and a few days later hosted an excellent guest post by Sheila O’Donnell about trauma informed care.
The book I am choosing as “book of the weeks” for this next set of weeks is all about life within a psych ward. It is one of my favorite books, and if you haven’t read it yet, that is a PROBLEM which you need to remedy ASAP.
