I’m privileged to have access to some of the greatest minds on the planet; I work in a mental institution. It is very challenging, yet rewarding work. It is often loud and chaotic but I enjoy it. My favorite part of the job is talking with the patients. They tell fantastic stories (the more delusional the better).From time to time, I will share some of the things I experience at work on this blog.
Overheard in the mental institution:
Mr. G is a 55 year old man with schizophrenia. He was asked by a staff member if he was ever married. This was his reply: “Women don’t do nothing but take your money and give you diseases. I ain’t got no time for no woman. My penis is sanctified! When I die and go to heaven I’m going to have sex with the angels. They’re going to be flying all around me and I’m going to catch them and uh, uh, uh, uh, uh.”
So he’s got that going for him, which is nice.
