I worry. I worry about doctors. I worry particularly about psychiatrists. Always being responsible for others. Dealing with hidden, invisible terrors invited anew into their office each half-hour. Each with their own issues. Psychosis, obsessive-compulsive, depression, mania, bipolar, schizophrenia, eating disorders and narcissism. Listening to them, trying to understand, trying to help, trying to make them better. Absorbing all those lives, all those problems, all those disorders into themselves. Extracting the insanity in any manner possible. Not unlike lancing a snakebite, placing delicate lips upon the wound, sucking the venom free and turning only to find no place to spit.
