WHEN THE GO­ING GETS ROUGH

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - All in a Day’s Work - SUB­MIT­TED BY SARAH PENNISI

I am the only ad­min­is­tra­tive per­son in the front of­fice of a sub­sidised hous­ing com­plex that sup­ports peo­ple liv­ing with chronic men­tal ill­ness.

On one par­tic­u­larly busy morn­ing, a ten­ant came in to pay her rent.

Fraz­zled, I said to her, “To­day is a bit rough. Ever have one of those days when you feel ev­ery­one is out to get you?”

She smiled and replied, “I take med­i­ca­tion for that.”
