My therapist says the darndest things

Him - "Evn, you're really doing a great job processing your current issues."

Me - "Thanks!"

Him - "So now, let's work on making sure you don't turn into a paranoid psychopath."

Me - "Touché."

That's too funny. Are you sure he has his priorities straight?

Evn said...

I can only assume he has my best interests at heart. But if he doesn't let me be at least a part-time psychopath, I may have to take my business elsewhere.

@ Amanda: I sincerely hope he doesn't have his priorities straight...

Evn dear, I am sure you don't need to pay for therapy when you have this blog and CaerStrife to work out any issues you may have, which I am sure are minor.

Evn said...

Yewtree, I don't need therapy per se, but it's nice to have a private sounding board. Plus it gives me an opportunity to discuss non-bloggable topics, like paranoia and psychosis. ;)

Please remind your therapist that if he cures you, he will not be able to afford that villa in Tuscany next year. Keep up the good work, suggested reading: "The Mask of Sanity" written by Hervey Cleckley, M.D, it's totally the handbook on perfecting the art of sociopathy. You're welcome.

Well, I'm supposed to be reading "It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken," but "The Mask of Sanity" sounds a lot more useful.

Is there a meaningful difference between being more or less well-balanced in the eyes of a therapist and being well-balanced in the eyes of a Goddess?

Speaking totally as a human practitioner of a not-so-therapeutic Craft Trad, I suggest stepping back from playing with psychopathy, even if it lures us toward certain aspects of the Goddess. We folks don't do such frutful magic tinged with psychopathy. It draws us into not seeing much humor in the world or in ourselves...

"Well, I'm supposed to be reading "It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken,"
Wait, (gay gasp) is there a d.i.v.o.r.c.e. looming that you aren't talking about? (If so, it hasn't make it to TMZ yet...) Am I out of the loop and this is old news? Will I be asked to testify in court? Say it isn't so...

Evn said...

You're not out of the loop. E-mail me offblog and I'll tell you all about it.

argh, your word verif... I wasn't going to comment, but all this talk about reading books on breaking up and the word is "Deoffer"

Evn said...

Oooh. "Deoffer" really sums up the situation at hand.

WV = "Biasion." A biased liaison?

Yewtree said...

Ah. I see. Well - sort of. Because we Brits are too tight to pay for conversation, er, therapy, unless we actually can't cope with being insane.
