So I got a call in the evening from the hospital, they tell me that for my next therapy appointment, I will be seeing a different/new psychologist (WHY. - WHO said you could do it???)
Apparently new psychologist guy is Caucasian, at least 50, has a greying moustache (wow gotta love this) - I have nothing against Caucasian males above the age of 50 with a greying moustache (😂😬) but ... that's not P. P, my psychologist, is 35M, Asian Chinese, the only therapy professional I will ever see because of ... general distrust with the MH system hahaha 🙃
So apparently I get a call from the therapy clinic receptionist, a middle-aged Malay lady, also about 50-60 years old. She reminds me of an ahjumma (😂), or the equivalent of an ahjumma in whatever your culture is. Malay receptionist woman (on the phone) goes on and on about how I cannot make changes, this is the current protocol and allocation, I need to at least give old-Caucasian-guy a shot .. no, I cannot have an appointment with P. She even tries to tell me to calm down(!)
It is also towards the end of the work day, so she tells me there is a limit to what she can do, effectively also putting an end to my protests.
In my DESPERATION like -- what do you mean I cannot have P? omg, what are you thinking? -- I, 31-yo, suggest to my mother (60s) to help me make a complaint. Like, I guess, power of more-than-1 lol (but yes 😑 Which 31F person gets her mother in her 60s to lodge a complaint .. lol)
Then I wake up 😌☺️, & I remember I have appointments booked for June & July. In our last conversation in May's appointment, P said -- "okayokayokay, if I have concrete resignation plans, I'll let you know" -- still gonna check my online records to be sure HAHA.
HAHAHAHAHA sorry to all the Malay makciks/"aunties"/Caucasian middle-aged male psychologists with greying moustaches - you're great folks but Sertraline dreams are their own movie script!!!
The kicker is there is no Caucasian male psychologist at the dept where P works - he's the only male psychologist in the dept 🙃
If you haven't already figured, this was a Sertraline/Zoloft-induced dream and completely fictional 🙃 Imagine if I went in protesting/screaming about it in 1.5 weeks ...
See you in June (&July) P! 🙃😂
