Winter Flash – Loco

“Tell me what you think the problem is?”

“I really don’t know Doctor, I am so angry.”

“You have the right to feel that way.”

She glanced from her place on the couch. He reminded her of the Longleg spider her brother use to catch. She squirmed slightly and wondered again, why she was here.

“I sometimes feel like hurting strangers.”

“You have the right to feel that way.”

“Really Doctor, do you think so?”

She glanced over at the doctor thinking, ‘he really is creepy.’

“Yes, you have the right to your feelings.”

“Doctor, you really are loco.”

  1. Nothing quite like talking to a doctor who is crazy…!

  2. I’m very late to this post, but it is exactly the experience I have had with shrinks. When I wanted to see one while in Switzerland following my sister’s death, my Swiss doctor said “But they’re all nuts!” He was right.

    • This Elyse is essentially the experience I had with a ‘Victim’ specialist. By the end of my first session I was ready to beat him into a bloody puddle. I realized he was far crazier than I was. 🙂

  3. liked your twist – enjoyed reading all… me? i’m having a lo-commotion day. continue…

  4. Now I would never have thought of the crazy Doc…. LOL….. 🙂

  5. Yes I voted for beating up on the doctor too.

  6. Oooooh, this was grrreat! I just watched an episode of a show called The Blacklist (or something like that). I’d never watched it before, and even though it totally creeped me out, I got hooked! The episode involved a man they called “The Stewmaker” who made people vanish in a particularly grotesque way. This “doctor” of yours reminds me of him. Crrreeeeepy and loco for sure! XOXO-Kasey

    • Might have to check that one out, I have always liked creepy. That doctor is someone I met many years ago. I suspect he might have frowned if I had said I wanted to hurt strangers, but he still was creepy. 🙂

  7. LOVED the twist at the end of this one. He is, indeed, loco! Well done, my friend. Hope your day is loco-less!

    Hugs from Ecuador,

  8. I agree with Carrie – if he invites you for dinner – you could just be it 👿

  9. Just make sure he doesn’t take you home, cook you up, and eat you! By the way, Hannibal says hi…

  10. I’ve watched movies! I know about these kinds of doctors. He has the mantra down perfectly but he’s the crazy one.
    This is PURRR-fect, Val. Perfect.

  12. After this:
    “I sometimes feel like hurting strangers.”
    “You have the right to feel that way.”
    I was expecting her to beat the hell out of the doctor.

  13. Ha ha … I was wondering if the creepy thought was about the doctor.

  14. —The Doc is as crazy as she is.

    I Like! Xxx LOVE.
