i find most of my pts life stories, fascinating.
there are too many to choose from.
i had a pt who graduated from, and was a professor at a well-known, prestigious ivy league school.
he was also a published author.
when i got him, he was ravaged by his paranoid schizophrenia.
his life story had been confirmed.
and he wrote me a profound and lovely poem, before he died.
i recall another pt who prided herself in being the best damn hooker on the streets.
that she and her kids never had to go on welfare or medicaid.
that her kids went to private school, and wore the finest clothes.
she was truly proud of her salary and her independence.
and also proud of being a top-notch mom.
i could go on and on with stories.
i've met some incredible characters.
