If you can’t be with the one you love…

Okay, I know your mind goes quickly to cheating when you hear the words to that song. After I just spent four days in a hospital (don’t worry,this is not unusual for me, it’s just been awhile), I have come to startling revelations.

A person tends to lose their usual temperment once everything they love is take away from them; food,coffee, sleep, and normal contact with your husband. I’m not saying I love those things in that order, but like I mentioned, you start to lose rational after some time.

But something else happens. You get to a point where you have surrendered to your new surroundings, and all of a sudden, a certain level of clarity is achieved. Honesty takes on a whole new meaning. You realize that there really are only basic needs that have to be met, and it shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to get certain things completed. All cards on the table, I may have gotten a little short with some “incompetent” people. The shocking thing is, I didn’t feel bad about it, because it was like I suddenly saw the world in a new light.

What I did realize is that lucky for me, I do have some very reliable people in my life, who don’t crumble under pressure.Had it not been forĀ  my husband’s assistance,I probably would’ve been escorted off of the premises. I guess a little mandatory time-out from everything that we hold “dear” can do us some good. Of course, I hope it not in the form of you going to the hospital.
