NEWARK, NEW JERSEY — After recent news about an emotional support peacock being barred from a United Airlines flight departing from New Jersey, Gomerblog is pleased to announce that the bird has made itself available to field therapy-related questions from Gomerblog fans worldwide. Dexter, the emotional support peacock, is a board-certified clinical psychiatrist & Chair of the NYU Department of Psychiatry. The following are real questions sent via Gomerblog to Dexter by real Gomerblog fans.
“Lately I’ve developed a gripping fear of getting a call at 2am to order prn lozenges. Do you have any suggestions for coping when I become fixated on something like that?” — Dr. Sri-Sheshadariprativadibayankaram (“Lamenting Lozenge Liability”)
“I have great difficulty with insomnia, especially due to my frequency of night shifts. Do you recommend the use of benzodiazepines to treat sleep disorders?” — Anne Hedonia, RN (“Sleepless In Seattle”)
“I’m a hospital administrator and I’ve noticed that the doctors seem to be demonstrating symptoms of depression, especially when I keep nagging them about patient satisfaction scores. Do you have a preferred antidepressant that you’d suggest mixing into the food in the doctor’s lounge?” — Chlöe Less (“Ambitious Administrator In Agony”)
Dexter: <squawk, squawk>
