Sometimes I have bad memories that come to the surface. Today I was thinking of the time I passed out outside my front door at my former home. Neighbour called an ambulance who took me to hospital without my shoes, wallet and mobile phone.
When I came to in hospital I don’t remember much. I remember having a meltdown because I had no shoes. It was very unpleasant. I remember a nurse muttering as she walked off something along the lines of “I’ll get you some pink slippers then”.
In the end I left the hospital in my bare feet. I walked about a mile home barefoot. I remember people staring at me as I walked home. I was worried they would call the police. A similar thing happened again a few months later.
