Revo at the hospital
about a month ago I was admitted to the hospital. It was a dormitory ward which meant there was no privacy or separate rooms, but it also meant I could make friends easier. I met a lot of different girls during my stay as we could walk around and go to each other’s beds, except for one girl. She was on drips as she had an eating disorder, meaning she couldn’t walk around or talk to the other girls like I could.
On my second day, I decided to walk up to her and just make friends with her, she was really surprised. No one else had went to talk to her and she was all the way at the back of the ward, so we didn’t pass her often either. We soon became friends and I’d ask the others to come sit at her bed and play games instead of going to our other beds.
We talked and talked for hours a day because we had nothing else to do in the ward, I got to know her really well. She told me that the only thing she’d eat at that point was fruits, so everyday when our meals came, I would save my fruits and give it to her.
She was very thankful and was wondering why I was being so nice, this is when I started sharing about Revo. She asked me a lot of questions about it, she seemed really interested.
On my last day at the ward, she thanked me and told me she was really touched by my actions, which touched me too.
Staying at the psychiatric ward without a phone for 5 days really opened my eyes, I had a lot of time to think, pray, and share the Gospel. Praise God for giving me the opportunity and giving me the strength to share his word, even in difficult times.
