Respite Care

The unbelievable storm

I am alive

So many angels and saints

and the greater force

Serving the demon

How did I get through?

God I am lucky

These are my reflections regarding my journey from my 20s to now.

I spent time in 3 respite care centres in Auckland (Mount Albert, Mairangi Bay, and Titirangi).

Respite care is a place for mentally ill people.

I am grateful to the many support workers who helped me - they are saints ❤️


One day a friend introduced meditation to me as a solution for my mind.

I started practicing the method of discarding my remembered thoughts.

The more I discarded the more I smiled.

Becoming free.

I can see.
