Ask Dr Cruise.
Ask Dr Cruise.
Another question that Dr Prince has passed on to his assistant to answer.
Dear Dr. Cruise,
I am writing to you because I am worried about my son.
He has always been a little strange, but lately he complains that he hears voices when no one’s around, telling him to do terrible things, including stab me to death.
He really seems crazy lately.
My friends urge me to have him committed, and even he has indicated that he might need psychiatric help.
What do you think I should do?
‒ Buggin’ in Bristol
Don’t be so glib.
Trust me, your son will not benefit from psychological treatment.
I know this, because I know the history of psychiatry, and it has never helped anyone, ever. There’s no science to it.
When I was secretly enrolled at Cambridge University in England, getting my doctorate in psychology with a concentration in psychiatric history, I was astounded to find that the entire field of psychiatry was without any scientific validity.
I was also shocked, during my secret tenure as professor of mental disorders and advanced neurochemistry at Johns Hopkins, to discover that there is actually no such thing as a chemical imbalance.
Your son is probably faking it, or he is severely vitamin deficient. I advise you to buy him some orange juice and a bottle of multivitamins; he should be just fine. .
Please send any questions you may have, either for Dr Prince or Dr Cruise, via the usual channels.

There's a moral to this story, isn't there? I do love stories with morals. Here's my version: you don't ask your dentist to adjust your carburetor...so you don't ask your auto mechanic to do a root canal. |
Or maybe some do?
