The Florene Express…

George called tonight and I told him I was feeling mentally ill.  I am candid with George about my mental illness.  Well, Mrs. Florene thought a good meal would help me.  Bless!  George ran it by an hour ago.  The turnip greens and black eyed peas are left over from New Year’s.  The fried porkchop and cornbread were divine.  Friends make the world go round and I do feel better after some good ole soul food.  Mrs. Florene also sent me some ham salad not pictured and a gallon of her sweet tea.

That looks yummy. You are right about having good friends and I bet Miss Florene feels the same way about you. Tomorrow is your shot isn't it? Maybe you will feel better after that. Relax and be peaceful.

Lacey,

I hope she does. I would do anything in the world for her. Yes, my shot is in the morning and I await the relief. It will take about 3 hours for it to enter my bloodstream. Dad is bringing me an extra Risperdal and some Klonopin tonight to calm me down. He gets here at 9:30 so I only have about 20 more minutes to wait for help.

Maybe you can ask her the recipe for the tea and share it. I would love to try it! We really dont have sweet tea here in Miami. More like Cafe Cubano!

Tell Mrs. Florene that because of her I stopped by the store on the way home and bought pork chops for dinner tonight. Yum!
