Top 10 Tuesday

Top 10 Reasons to Look for a New Doctor
(particularly in psychiatry)

10. he wears elf slippers and talks baby talk to adolescents

9. asks if your boy/girl twins are identical

8. his standard poodle "therapy dog" humps your leg

7. threatens to charge you a maintenance fee if he can't reprogram the timer on his fish tank (that your child unplugged)

6. suggests botox for your teenager's anxiety

5. wears a 3-piece suede suit in Southern California

4. tells you he learned everything he knows about drugs by using them

3. keeps you waiting 30 minutes then apologizes that he "had a suicide"

2. excuses himself for extended periods of time to a broom closet marked: "Do not Enter"

1. suggests you blog about how great he is

Let me just say that I never tell a lie (who needs to write fiction when real life is so utterly unbelievable).

A word to the wise in the world of autism intervention and treatment: There are always other fish in the sea.


  1. This is unbelievable. I would definitely find a new doctor!!!!

  2. Sounds like some of the doctors we've seen over the years. thanks for making me laugh -- I needed that.

  3. for some reason #9 and #1 really cracked me up. i can just imagine the expression on your face, and i can't stop laughing!

    i think i'm going to like these top 10 lists.

  4. My long lost friend Andrea....God is so great that he has brought us together in motherhood.....Raising an autistic child is a gift.
    My crazy ability to laugh at life and myself has often pulled me thru the darkest of times... I have a belly laugh like no other..and always enjoy a good Alpha Chi Omega to badger...
    So...who am I????

  5. Whoa, no way....i don't want to make a wrong guess? give me another clue! Molly, Maureen, Kim? hmmmmm....so glad you found this. i'm on facebook too:)

  6. Oh Andrea - if it weren't so pathetic it would be hilarious! Real life can be so entertaining if you don't take it too seriously - thanks for reminding us all of that.
