Someone saved my sanity this morning. A friend from FB, not someone I’ve met face to face but a good “mate”. He knew I was feeling pretty down and that my major psychotic episode is less than a fortnight behind me.
A voice from a quarter of the way around the world made me laugh, made me feel cared about. Never, ever underestimate the power of hearing a human voice. I had masses of wonderful supportive messages on FB which made me feel heaps better but…this was a vocal hug.
So if you ever think “I should phone” but hesitate – don’t. Your call could make a world of difference to someone who is at the end of their tether.
Thank you, Sir, you know who you are and would hate me to name you but – you are a true gentleman.
