So, first appointment with Dr. Schiff was stunning. She's much less about me cultivating my own awareness than my therapist is. She was very straightforward. "Here's what your issues look like to me, here's how your past created those issues, here are the things we can do." (For the record, studies prove -- and I believe from lived experience -- that both talk therapy and psychiatry heal you faster and more thoroughly.)

In my case, the thing we can do is make another appointment for two days from now, as she apparently believes there are some things we should deal with immediately. And seemed a bit surprised that this is my first go-round with psychiatric medicine, but maybe that's just me projecting.

Luckily I'm crazy either way. Ah, certainty, thy name is madness.

Oh! Lookie! A trickster meme!

You're kind of the Ralph Kramden of Tricksters. You're quite the practical joker, and your sense of humor can be a bit slapstick. You'll fart in the elevator and blame it on the guy next to you, and you love nothing more than to see some arrogant yuppie snot get his - especially when it's you handing out the lesson. You're not mean-spirited by any means, but like Ananse Spider your practical jokes can get you into trouble if you're not careful.
