"Why don't you just do laundry once a week?"

Linda either doesn't hear me or pretends not to hear me. Either way, she won't turn from the window, where she's been standing looking out at the rain ever since the start of our session 20 minutes ago.

"Pick a day, any day, and stick with it. Your method is wasting your time."

Her method: Sudsing only the crotches of her underwear and then blow-drying each pair individually, every night.

For once, can't one of my patients come to me with a desire to slit her wrists? I want something meaty!
