Somehow I got myself downtown and to what is now July22/19 called CAMH - Canadian Association of Mental Health. I don’t think kindly of the doctor who interviewed me. He doesn’t deserve my kind thoughts. “what seems to be your problem Mrs Bishop?” or possibly he called me Betty? “I am afraid [or was it I want to - or was it I think I might] I will jump off my 12th floor balcony…” “and what do you think brought this on?” “Well, my rent was due on the first of the month and I don’t have enough money to pay it.” “Seems to me you are just trying to cop out. Come back in the morning - ask to see Mrs Grayson and she will give you the money to pay your rent!” “I don’t believe you. I won’t be coming back in the morning.” “You may leave now. Go home, come back in the morning”.
