Alcoholly has been telling me for a few months that her psychiatrist is "interested" in her. I assumed she meant that he was "interested" in her as a peculiar patient until she started saying things like, "I know you don't want to hear these things about your grandmother, but I am a woman, darling."
Today she told me that her psychiatrist can not see her very often because it is "far too agonizing" for him. "As long as I am his patient, we can not have a relationship," she sighed wistfully.
I didn't say anything. The whole conversation was becoming too strange, even for my grandmother.
When I got off the phone with her, I looked up a picture of her psychiatrist to see how old he was.
What do you think? Maybe 35 years old? My grandmother is 80.
So, like me, you are probably laughing. As if a 35 year old man would be in love with an 80 year old woman! HA! However, what if this doctor is indeed in love with Alcoholly? Crazier things have happened. Do I have a duty to report his unethical behavior? Should I advise her to seek a different psychiatrist?
Harold and Maude sharing a passionate kiss.
Best of luck to my grandmother and the young doctor. It's a little too Harold and Maude if you ask me.
