Seeing People

One of our regular patients at the counseling center had complained of hearing voices. So the doctor gave him medication. When the man came back for a follow-up, I asked if the prescription helped.

"I don’t know," he said. "Now I’m having hallucinations."

"Well, make sure to tell the doctor so he can change the medication."

"I don’t know if I want to change," he joked. "Finally, I get to see who’s talking to me."
