Standing On A Chair

Telling it like I see it…

Rants from the Chair: On What Happens When You Marry Your Shrink – Part 8

I’m going to take a minute here to speak directly to you…my beloved and appreciated blog-readers.  Because, regarding this story I am currently telling you, I know what you’re thinking.  You’re thinking, “What in the fuck was this pathetic, profoundly ignorant and naïve young woman thinking??” 

Well let me assure you, I sit astounded too.  So, before I continue, I shall present to you my disclaimer:  I am not still that stupid, I tell you! 

Years later I had a shrink tell me (uh, this one was principled, ethical and taught me many wonderful lessons) that not only should the actions of “Dr. Rosenberg” have caused him to lose his license, but he could have even done jail time.  He told me I was the victim of a really bad “psychological professional.”  I, of course, balked at that because I refuse to think of myself as a victim.  I mean, I absolutely have to accept some responsibility.  After all, I allowed Andrew to “take me away” with him, didn’t I?  Still, my principled and ethical shrink told me, I was the patient, and Andrew was the responsible party.

Nonetheless, I feel like this story should be told, at the very least because it is true, it is completely bizarre, and definitely stranger than fiction.

There’s so much more to come.  I really didn’t know what I was getting into when I started out.  So I can’t tell you how many more parts there will be.  I guess however many it takes to tell the story.

So if this “Lifetime Television” shit is not for you, forgive me, and check in later, when I’m sure I’ll be back to my typical rantings and ravings in social commentary.

Stay tuned for Part 9
