Its modesty the privacy given to vulnerable patients and selfless staff but a darker reading is mother. Nature herself is trying to swallow this evil building from few trying to protect her naive inhabitants. We apparent covers. Their child's is disturbing images appear on the television. The horrors of my former place of employment earned secured behind a television screen. They're only held back from reality by a fragile layer of sanity a barrier which at knows away at from its own side. All of this begins with a young woman. Patient X I've redacted her name out of respect for the family I will refer to her as Alicia. It was September one thousand nine hundred nine. When I began recording our sessions it was a leashes second time under my care and unfortunately last September third mighty ninety nine. It's three minutes past two. So how have you been sleeping not bad but I had strangest dream? Last night I dreamt that I lived in a mirror and I only be seen other people looked at me.

But I'm I'm just going to fall apart again and lend up in this creepy fucking hospital over and over again. I know it seems like that but the cycle can be broken. We dispose tell your current mood can affect your memory and your outlook on the future in your intake interview. You mentioned being upset about your brother. How do you feel about that now? I still miss him. You hear him no to hear any voice. That's why I stopped believing in God. God speak to you. I used to think keep it but God would have kept his promise. The voice didn't walk to say he said well I asked is if I could make a deal. I'll stop watching TV for a year. If he would save my brother. I kept my promise. You don't believe in God because he broke a promise. No I don't believe in God because God couldn't exist in the world with voices and voices that lie face isn't my area. Maybe you could talk to the chaplain about this. If you think it would help. He has his hands full with all the crazies in here. What does it say about faith if there are so many religious people in here? It means they needed. I WanNa talk about my brother anymore. I'm tired I before but what I haven't been sleeping at all.

We don't indulge the patient psychosis because it enables them it feeds into their delusion for the truth is that we are afraid to lean in because we looked too hard. We might see what they see. There was a certain comfort and madness because reality can be too much to bear the truth. I now have to face. Is that because of my actions or inactions back then. A patient went missing. Who still hasn't been found lives were ruined when I look for how they told me to go. I couldn't but I did keep quiet onto now. Why am I telling him I store? Why am I telling unleashes story?
