This afternoon in a meeting, it was announced that half of the hospital was closing. It is a sad thing. It is sad for staff, but tragic for patients. They rationalize that the patients will be able to find other services in the community, but this is simply not true. If there were other services, they would not be in the hospital now. It is so sad to see what can happen to vulnerable people with no voice.
I will be OK. I know that. It might get ugly, but it will be OK. But it is a sad day for so many reasons.
I took a walk tonight after work. It was nice.
Tomorrow I will meet a sponsee at a meeting and then sit and read the big book for a half hour or so - and then go to work. Lots of people are really hurting there. I can focus on being of service to them - or I can focus on my own crap. I know which one will feel better - a lot better. So I think I will endeavor to turn my thoughts to others.
