@vanessa I’m a few months away from my third anniversary at a residential psychiatric facility (it was an open setting before the pandemic, so it’s more like therapy is my job than I’m living in a hospital). Discovered some “fun” things along the way, like specific situations can prompt my unconscious to end conversations by making me mute for five or six hours. I have a much better appreciation for why folks used to believe in possession and how exorcism worked (I once froze during therapy and my therapist ordering me to leave at the end unfrozen my muscles).
Brains, can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em! 🧠
