Living life on the borderline

It’s Kind of a Funny Story.

Posted on: February 19, 2012

If you haven’t watched this film… please do. I finished watching it last night (it was worth staying up until 3am for) and it gave me such a lovely warm feeling of happy afterward. At some points, it felt very raw because even though it’s a comedy-drama, it portrays that initial horror of psychiatric hospitalisation very well. It reminded me of that moment when I was admitted to the CAMHS unit – as my parents said their tearful goodbyes, a fellow patient was picked kicking and screaming off the floor by several members of staff and carried off into another room. You have that whole false lightbulb moment of “you know what, actually I’m feeling a lot better. Can I go home?”. Anyway, the positive bit I got was right at the end – I won’t give the story away, but it made me very happy. Emma Roberts played fantastically in her role, I think. Put aside where you may have seen her in the teen television show “Unfabulous” and the comedy film Wild Child.

I’m going to continue the theme of positivity. I am listening to Madonna, because I am unashamedly a big fan of hers. Who couldn’t love such a bendy 53-year old woman? Who, indeed. I may… may have some lovely news to share soon, on my battering-ram-esque journey of mental health awareness. No, I’m not pregnant, just to clear that up! Also, I am frozen to the core from some “on location” (a few metres away from my house) photography.

And I bought a pretty new camera and that made me happy too. So that is good. Happy is good. Not too happy, not too sad, not too blank. As the fairytale goes… just right.
