To the doctor

For a foreign friend I translated a blog of mine in English and German. * Nederlands

TO THE DOCTOR

I know from experience how important the work of psychiatrists is. To make that clear, I came up with this little story.

Woman: Honey, you've been so quiet lately. What's the matter with you?

Man: I don't know, honey, I don't know myself anymore and reality seems so far away.

Woman: That's not good, dear, you'd better see the doctor about it.

The man goes to his doctor, who immediately sends him to a psychiatrist.

Psychiatrist: Tell me, what's the matter with you?

Man: I don't know, doctor, I don't know myself anymore and reality seems so far away.

The psychiatrist listens carefully and after the consultation he sends his report to the GP.

Man: Tell me, doctor, what's wrong with me.

Doctor: The psychiatrist reports that you suffer from depersonalization and derealization.

Man: Oh, really? What does that mean, doctor?

The doctor explains it to him and the man goes home.

Woman: Tell me honey, what did the doctor say?

Man: Well, I seem to suffer from depersonalization and derealization.

Woman: Oh awful, what does that mean?

Man: I didn't know that either, but according to the doctor it means that I don't know myself anymore and reality seems so far away.

Woman: Well, it's a good thing you went to the doctor. At least now you know what it is.
