Shrink #1 assumed the six years of time spent in bed was an exaggeration.
Shrink #2 assumed the six years of time spent in bed was a representation of med-seeking.
Shrink #3 had heard this line before. He asked about her “other symptoms.”
Shrink #4 disregarded her completely and asked her husband.
Shrink #5 just read her chart and let her keep chattering.
Shrink #6 did not read her chart as he had left his reading glasses at home. What is the use of reading if you are that type of doctor, anyway?
Shrink #7 ignored her. The patient seemed incompetent from the start.
Shrink #8 assumed she was stretching it a bit. Must have been six days. Just like the Six Day War in the Middle East that still isn’t over.
Shrink #9 assumed it’s Malingering.
Shrink #10 wondered about her Facebook fans, then, realized they were waiting out in the waiting room. He wrote, “They are sicker than she is, sadly.”
Shrink #11 wrote, “So you claim this is an illness, eh?”
Shrink #10 said, “Hey, Monica, this would make a great blog, just so long as you stay sick another few years.”
Disclaimer: I know, I was there, too. Being sick does bring in the fans.
