My book, David’s Story, does not always show psychiatrists in a positve light but …………


I have deviated from the subject of mental illness and mental wellness for a while. I suppose I needed a break but I am far from done.

 My book, David’s Story, does not always show psychiatrists in a positive light, but I actually came across one who is different from the rest. He is approachable and considerate and the word shrink never comes to mind when I am describing him.

 He read my book, wrote a short review which I have included, and a couple of days ago, this learned doctor mailed to ask me whether he could re-read David’s Story and write a more detailed review for the Israel Psychiatric Journal. Of course I said yes, and mailed the book to him by return mail. What would you have done in the same position? I bet y ou would have done the same thing.

 I found this gesture of his very touching, mainly because he has never told me that I exaggerated anything in my story.

I never thought I would ever say this about a psychiatrist, but, he is actually the kind of person one needs to have for a friend.
