A Year In An Institution

Posted by – August 29, 2009

How many months have I been institutionalized?

The number of the day

August 28 marked a full year I’ve been in a NYC rehab hospital. It was a bittersweet anniversary: sweet because it’s one year since I succeeded in changing my life and moving close to my girl, and bitter because of the myriad of professionals that have failed to coordinate the home services required for me to transition to our apartment, confining me to the institution for over a year.

Hopefully I won’t make it past 13 months of institutionalization.
