Intake Appointment (Impulsiveness and recklessness noted)

I could get diagnosed with paranoia

or that could’ve really been a private investigator

outside of my apartment last evening

 

And it could be said that I have issues with rage

or maybe I’m just pissed at the psychiatrist

I tell him, ” I can smell

your little bipolar sniffing

investigation from a mile away,

i studied psychology and lived

with mental patients; let me tell you now,

I don’t have it.”  “Ok,” he says “But do you feel

that you’re anxiety and depression

are cyclical? Do you go through periods

where you feel like you can do anything?”

 

“I feel like that’s a trick question.

Listen, it’s not my fault or unrealistic

I can do anything if I set my mind to it.

I feel like I’m killing this.”

“Uh-huh, and is that a scar i see on your wrist?”

“No, that’s a cigarette burn.

Here are the scars. But I didn’t do that.

Someone else did.”

“Someone stabbed you?”

 

“Yeah, that’s a long story.

I don’t want to get into it.”

“We have an hour and a half.”

“Do we? If you ask me any more

bipolar related questions,

I’m finished.”

 

“Well, I can tell you right now

you’re not getting out of here

with just one diagnosis. But I’ll also add

that I think most of your issues

stem from the life that you’ve lived

and, of course, seeing as how I’m a psychiatrist

I’ll also point out that your mother has alot to do with it.”
