Obesity Fashion and Mental Health and Hospital Politics

I recently was admitted to hospital with cracked heels and paranoid delusions, mainly relating to a pair of prescription glasses.  After some patience I was blessed with an understanding of the dos and dont's of behaviour as a patient and also at home, with friends and whilst alone.  I am sure that the standards are better and learning, what surprised me was the immense amount of waiting for meds, but more crucially the social network and how patients help other patients sometimes, particularly the sick and angry ones.
During my stay at Eastwing I was blessed to meet some very famous and artistic individuals and following a moment in time, I began to practice Tai Chi, Yoga and Kata, which in itself complimented the daily routine and the time divisional transponder and the time capsule.  The real challenge was to minimise smoking cigarettes and to also make the most of Manly and the lovely beaches like Dee Why, South Curl Curl and Freshwater.  Of course there are many hurdles to overcome when needing acute care and understanding the behavioural issues out there.  I think the prayer came to me, particularly thanks to a patient X who told me the serenity prayer.

God give me the serenity to accept the the thinks I cannot change, and courage to change the things I can, and give me the wisdom to know the difference Amen.

Other thoughts came to mind, like go to bed earlier and wake up earlier, train hard and also train for trainings sake.  Also focus on the things you can control as opposed to those things you cannot.  Talk to someone and also play tennis.  All this in the form of a poster, helped the time move slowly.

Best Wishes,
