The Love Story of Ralph and Edna.
Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you
want them to,
doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they
Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental
day while they were walking past the hospital
swimming pool. Ralph
suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the
bottom of the pool
and stayed there. Edna promptly jumped in to save
him. She swam to the
bottom and pulled him out.
When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna’s
she immediately ordered her to be discharged from
the hospital, as she
now considered her to be mentally stable. When she
went to tell Edna
the news she said, ‘Edna, I have good news and bad
news. The good news
is you’re being discharged, since you were able to
to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of
the person you love.
I have concluded that your act displays sound
mindedness. The bad news
is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his
bathrobe belt right
after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he’s dead.’
Edna replied, ‘He didn’t hang himself, I put him
there to dry.
How soon can I go home?’
Happy Mental Health day! 😉
