I can't join this club but I feel left out. Can I sit in the corner with my own club? It's the therapist-replaced-by-inferior-replicant club.

How long since your therapist was replaced?
Several months.

How can you be sure she's a replicant?
She looks the same, and some of the words are similar, but this one doesn't understand me at all, treats me like I'm nuts, tells me my perceptions are wrong all the time, and doesn't seem to care too much for my well-being.

When will your real therapist return?
I'm not sure. I keep hoping, and once I thought she was back, but the replicant is there 90% of the time. At this point I can't tell.

How are you coping?
Denial. I keep trying to believe in the replicant's weird rap, but it doesn't work. My real self just keeps resisting being crushed. When denial fails, I lapse into a deer-in-the-headlights passivity in the face of the thread of death from all directions. My old so-called unhealthy coping mechanisms are starting to seem appealing.

P.S. I made a freudian typo. I said 'thread of death' instead of 'threat of death'.
