Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. Ralph andEdna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while theywere walking past the hospital swimming poolRalph suddenlyjumped into the deep end.
He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.
Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottomand pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became awareof Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be dischargedfrom the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.
When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have goodnews and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged,since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumpingin and saving the life of the person you love... I have concludedthat your act displays sound mindedness.
The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with hisbathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.'
Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry.. How soon can I go home?'
Happy Mental Health Day!
