i am kind of looking for ideas for friends and family who end up there. I really liked when my dad gave me a basket of different colored jelly beans and had a type written note stating that each color was for a different “medicine”: red was compassion, black was vigor, yellow was cheer, green was discipline and pink was optimism. Was a bit of a play on the placebo effect but it did really seem to make me feel better even though I knew it was fake.
I have a friend who has been stuck in hospital out of state and I have sent her books and music over the years.
Now my wife has a cousin who is in the local psych hospital and I am really not sure what to bring her… I know a roll of quarters would come in handy for the vending machines and we are planning to bring her a sub sandwich sometime.
Any other ideas?
