PSEUDONAME 3moment are completely weightless and with that instance my mind reflects.
“Andrew, nice to finally get the chance to meet you. Please take a seat.”“Do I get the couch or the chair?”“Either of which you prefer. Most choose the couch, but I must say the chair is far morerelaxing.”“The couch, please.” I step towards the couch dazily, confused about my intentions. Whywas I here? I approach the couch taking the pillows occupying the seat and move them over tothe opposite side. The couch was comfortable enough, not too hard not too soft, quite relaxing if I may say so.“Your mother has spoken a great deal about you to me, and to be honest Im quite excitedabout getting to know you.” Her voice was soothing and also sounding as something was to bedesired. What personal gain could she get by trying to tinker with my mind? “I want to start byyou telling me why you think you're here. If you don't mind.”“I'm here...” I was at a loss for words. My mother had talked me into coming here after Igot out of the hospital, but I never really asked myself why. She is worried for my well being, Iknow this, but nothing really connected. “I'm here, because my mother referred me to you. She's been seeing you for several months now and it's helped her deal with things better, I guess. Shewants me to be able to as well. But as for why I'm really here? I don't know.”“Many people come to see me for reasons they don't even know. But to speak with meabout your issues won't solve them. When it comes to figuring out the solution to a problem, it'son your hands. I can merely help guide you towards a better way with dealing with your personalexpression. At all of our ages we never can seem to gain a grip on our emotions, and many people, including myself, need to talk with someone who's knowledgeable with emotions. Theycan help us understand what we really feel but what we choose to do with that interpretation isup to, well, the person. No one person can force you to choose one way or another, and anyonewho tries is merely manipulating you into thinking so.”“I can agree with all of that.”“Well good. I would like to start by you telling me some details about yourself.”“I'm 16, soon to be 17. I attend..” I pause for a moment and restart that sentence, “I didattend Columbia University High School for the Gifted. But due to some health problems I washospitalized for several weeks and cannot finish the semester. I don't go out, I don't have anyfriends, and I don't like change. ”“Why were you hospitalized for several weeks?”“I was in a coma for 3 weeks.”“Oh, dear. Why?”“The doctors don't really know. Several other of my peers were there too, but none stayedas long as me. No one was comatose for more than 2 days, other than me.”“That's terrible.”“I'm fine now.”“What happened?”
