“Then I started hearing voices,” Jim told Dr. Betsy.
He felt like a crazy person, hearing voices arguing in his head, Jim didn’t know what else to do. It was lucky Dr. Betsy Stein was able to squeeze him in.
Writing in a note pad she picked up off her desk, “What are they saying to you?
“Nothing violent,” Jim leaned forward on the couch. “Just two voices arguing over me. Sometimes they make fun of me.”
“Why do you think that is?”
Jim shook his head, “I don’t no. Cause I’m a mess? Cause I can’t commit to anything?” his voice rising.
He thought about Tammy. How could he just let her walk away without fighting for her? She was the best thing that ever happened to Jim, He knew she wanted to get married, but every time she brought it up Jim got afraid and avoided the subject.
Jim took a deep breath and calmly said, “Thanks doc. I have to go,” and walked out the door to go find Tammy.
