I wish I could tell stories as well as Dr. Van Hee (Hermes) does. I especially like his constant use of imagery and metaphor for all manners of things (macrame and dreams of waterfalls) seemingly unrelated.
Last night’s overdose patient was sent home because no one wanted to file paperwork for involuntary commitment…only 2 persons were “first hand witnesses.” I sent her home. She returned by ambulance with police escort about an hour later, high on yet another overdose. This time she was committed. I’m sure she would enjoy the card shark’s rainbow of pills.
