When the psychiatrist told her, “I’ll try to keep you out of the hospital for as long as possible,” she cringed. The psychiatrist presumably meant well, but she caught the meaning in his absentminded comment.
“What did he mean, ‘for as long as possible’? Doesn’t that mean he thinks I will end up in the hospital again? Doesn’t that mean he thinks I will only get worse… and not better?”
“I don’t want to work with him anymore,” she said. “I don’t think he’s a good doctor.”
