Meet Devin, he doesn't think he's crazy but he kinda is :P We wont know whats wrong with him for a little while, but if you're familiar with my deviantart page you probably already know why Devin's in a pshyc ward.

Speaking of doctors, I heard on the radio that therapists have been doing studies and discussing crying in therapy (that is, the doctor crying rather then the patient). The studies are early so far, and they only have points of view from the therapists, who said overall the patients felt a better connection with them if they saw them cry. But what do you think? I think I'd feel uncomfortable if I saw my therapist cry at something I said! Its the same as having a teacher try to talk to you about their personal life, the relationship changes and you feel like you cant have an unbiased point of view any more, but that's just me.

Thanks for your comments guys!
@Noir-x oh wow I didnt know you were on SJ! I didnt know up until the other day that you did comics either, awesome sauce XD

@AmiC Thank you! I'm already really enjoying your comic, you should put your other shorts on here too, they deserve more attention <3 XD And yeah, Devin's hair is just...a big mess, it reflects his personality hehe :P

@FiaFreckles @AmiC Interestingly, this past Wednesday they followed up on the therapist crying thing. Some patients e-mailed in with some good points, although many agreed it would feel too weird. One person said having their therapist cry gave them perspective- they'd grown up with this horrible family, but because the family kept it all secret and acted normal around neighbors, the person felt like it must not be a big deal and that they werent allowed to have bad feelings about their bad experience. So having the therapist cry made them realize that maybe what they had gone through was actually a big deal after all. Pretty good point 0_o

@Theorah: lol WHAT? That would be like the most uncomfortable thing ever, lol Id probably end up trying to comfort the therapist. Peronsally I think its better to talk to someone that can listen to your issues with a rational heard, and yeah they can sympathize but if they responded to it by crying it would kinda turn it round, making it seem like its becomming too personal for them =/ May as well talk to a family member or friend.

Hooray! Aha, i've found you! I tried searching for your work here before but could'nt find it. Your post on my page really helped me out. ^o^
Loving this story already. Colour really is an eye opener. Looks great. I love Devin's hair, it's very much my personal taste. ^-^
As for the crying, that really is just akward! Connection (for me) would only get in the way of the ability to just talk things through. Besides you cant force a connection between people. Perhaps it depends what kinda problem you have.(?)
