Note to reader: I am using this space and place to post parts of a new slip-fiction novel series I am working on, Left Brain Right, the story of a young girl who hears voices. Left-Brain excerpts will be from her care-takers’ point of view, while right-brain excerpts will describe how she sees the situation. I will not be posting the whole story, but I will be posting practical tips when dealing with someone, or one’s own self, as they are going through traumatic, or not so traumatic, experiences.

How today’s story excerpt can help you:

Theme: Sometimes we just need someone to day, “I get you.” “I’ve been where you are.”

In today’s story excerpt, Michelle’s doctor will be introducing a room mate in hopes that Michelle will be better able to relate, and/or communicate, with a peer.

Progress Report: September 5th Compiled by Dr. Wong

Report of recent symptoms/behaviors:

Staff members reported that Michelle spent most of the day in bed. When I went in to check on her, she was in a chair, wrapped in a blanket, staring out the window. She was unresponsive to verbal prompts. A roommate will be introduced later this afternoon. Perhaps she’ll be more responsive with a peer. She earned 0% on her DBR card today.
