    Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. Ralph and
    Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Ralph suddenly
    jumped into the deep end.

    He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

    Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.

    When she went to tell Edna the news she said,' Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love... I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.

    The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.'

    Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry..
    How soon can I go home?'

    Happy Mental Health!

    I'm not too happy with a joke about folks with mental illness. Please don't take this the wrong way, but having been an inpatient on the Psychiatric Ward of several hospitals before they got the right medications to treat my rapid cycling bipolar episodes under control, I think this story was humorous to the point where Ralph "hung himself." Anyone who has been an inpatient or visited anyone on a Psych Ward knows that they take away any objects, belts included that a person could use to do harm to themselves. Thus, Ralph's hanging would have been impossible via that method. I enjoy good humor, but feel this was a little over the limits. This is a touchy subject with patients and family members who have dealt with mental illness in their family.

    What most people don't understand is that the person with the mental illness is not always incurable, or beyond hope of recuperating. Just please be more sensitive before you post similar "jokes".
