“Do no harm.” Isn’t that the doctor mantra or something? Apparently, Dr. Raleigh left class that day to go punch patients in the face with a roll of quarters. I go to him in pain and confusion, hoping for… at least some understanding about Karen’s infidelity. Yet all of his questions seem to blame ME. Then he asks if Skylar was a catalyst. Was I afraid of what Skylar would think of Karen, should they meet face to face?
When I point out that Karen and Skylar DID meet face to face in the Borders Bookstore, he goes off the deep end, and tells me that’s not possible. Like Skylar would lie and make the whole thing up. Right.
But that wasn’t the worst of it. Next he tells me that Karen is in the other room, and invites her into our session to force a confrontation in his office. I fired him on the spot, reminded him of doctor/client privilege, and got Karen and myself out of there as fast as possible.
On the drive home, Karen asks what that was all about. I tell her that Dr. Raleigh is a con-man trying to create a new need for his services, when the truth was that we were cured.
Karen’s never looked happier.
