Anatomy of a Psychiatrist

I try to avoid people. Not that I don’t like them, I just don’t like their problems. Funny, isn’t it? A psychiartrist that hates listening to people’s problems.

I guess I hate it because that’s what I spend six hours doing. Monday through Friday. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. After that, I pretty much microwave some Lean Cuisine and call it a night.

It sounds so exciting, doesn’t it? Of course there are some variations. Sometimes Rob picks me up from work and takes me to dinner. Or rather took me to dinner. It’s over. He told me I focused on people too much, and needed to “leave work at work”. Psh, whatever that means.

I just don’t know what happened, I used to be so happy. I used to enjoy what I do…
