The next thing I remember was a nurse shaking my leg somewhere around the ankle. “Mrs Bishop, Mrs Bishop, wake up, it is time to get up.” Later I told her how much I wanted to punch her in the face and she said she knew that and that was why she stayed at the end of the bed. Before I was discharged there was a sort of general meeting where the patients were invited to make suggestions. I suggested new patients be allowed to sleep in on the morning they arrived. The head nurse said “I believe you are being discharged Mrs Bishop!” Right out of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. There were lots more One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest happenings. I don’t remember and I don’t think I was on any medication while I was there.
