I indulged in day dreams.
An old favourite,..in these dreams, people return to my life.
They have ceased to stigmatise me, and no longer care about my mental illness.
These day dreams happen, but intensify during times of stigma.
It is then that I day dream that all this will pass, come to an end, and my friends will return.
The truth is very different, and it is better for me to stay with reality.
I know from experience that this does not happen.
