Portfolio of Hope

To everyone at RG, thank you for bringing me back to life. I am leaving as a completely different person compared to who I was back in July. When I was admitted 6 months ago, I was broken in so many ways, mentally and physically. Although I couldn’t see it at the time, I was in desperate need of help- I needed to be saved from myself- and you were my source of help.

I genuinely don’t know where I’d be right now if it wasn’t for me being made to go inpatient, I don’t even know if I’d be alive. I can’t thank you all enough for getting me to this point- a point where I can finally say that I’m actually okay with being me, and I’m happy to be alive ( I never thought I’d be writing those words.)

You have showed me how to love myself again, never giving up on me even when I had given up on myself. When I was in a really dark place and felt like I didn’t want to live anymore, you helped me to see the light.

I can’t say it enough, but I will say it again anyway, thank you, not just for helping me, but for helping every other patient, past and present, who has ever been in here. You have given us hope that there are things worth getting better for.

On a final note, I know it will soon be my time to move on- I feel like I’m ready to leave now- but I will always remember this place and everyone in it.

All the peace & love
