“Asylum – XVIII: A Real Disagreement” / A Memorable Fancy #393

[Continuing the journal of Diane McMurphy, a patient in Bad Shepherd mental hospital, “The Asylum”]

     “You need to realize that Sugar isn’t…” Doctor hesitates, “…isn’t a real living person. She’s just a part of your mind that doesn’t want to be you.”

     Ponder, I. “My mind is real, therefore Sugar Odette is real. Doesn’t that follow?”

     He looks exasperated. The rest of the session doesn’t get any better, and then he lets me go back to Sugar. I tell her about the session and she laughs so hard that all of her jiggles, from top down. Then we collapse on the bed and we both jiggle.
