so we have 3 marked tapes

Looks more like they're denoting order now, rather than a specific date. Session 1 part 1, etc. - the 1/2 transcript seems to follow on from the newest.


If that's the case, then there's still one more tape to come-- 2/2-- session two, part one.

I'm not questioning the order of the tapes but rather am wondering about the overall context of them based on her five minutes comment--just noting that she was either being snippy or for some reason only has five minutes of his time.


Ah, sorry I didn't explain very well. From some of the book reviews, we learn that Dr. Viktor Larenz, after his daughter goes missing, retires and moves to an island in the North Sea. The woman is an unwelcome guest when she first visits the doctor. I'm assuming he told her she only had 5 mins, to explain her intrusion.


And I didn't explain very well either enaxor! It had sounded to me more like a conversation than what was assumed to be a therapy session; hence my interest in the five-minute comment.

Here's the audio -

Sounds like a train station to me.


I just realized something on 1/2--right after she says "That's when the problems started," does anybody else hear a waterfall in the background? It sounds sort of like the indoor decorative waterfalls they have in restaurants--too soft to be a real one and too loud to be one of the miniature kind you keep at home.

WOW! Disappear for a couple of days, and ALOT happens. Laughing Well what it seems to me is that our most recent tape received is the first of the series, then of course we can probably safely assume that the therapist wanted more of the woman's time, which would explain why we may hear different background noise on the tapes. I think we can safely assume that the person who is recording is the therapist.

I got a package today with the tape marked 1/1. I probably won't be able to post about it until after Netcast recording tonight.

Space - did the package come from the same San Diego address? Also, what newspaper was it wrapped in, and what date?

I got ARG Mail today!! \o/ And what's more, it was TOTALLY unexpected. The parcel is pretty much the same as all the others. My tape is 3/1.

This time the wrapping was from a tax instruction booklet.




Transcript:
Quote:
Man: I'd like to pick up where we left off, if I may.

Woman: Of course.

M: You said that Charlotte was nearly run over by a car.

W: Yes, that was the first time I saw her.

M: Where did you take her after that?

W: It was... the other way around - she took me! I just followed.

M: How would you explain her... how would you explain her motivation?

W: She wanted to know why her story only had two chapters. She said, "I want to be well again! What happens next?" She told me to finish the book.

M: In other words, you were instructed to keep writing by a character created by you.

W: Precisely! In any case, I was perfectly honest with her. I told her I didn't know how the story ended so there was nothing I could do.

M: What did she say to that?

W: She took me by the hand and promised to show me where the story started. She said, "Maybe you'll think of an ending when you see where it all began."

M: Where did she take you?

W: I... don't know the name of the place but we drove for a while to get there.

M: And how long did it take you?

W: Over an hour. We went through a little village, I remember seeing some old buildings, Russian architecture, I think.

M: Can you describe what you saw?

W: There was a Russian Orthodox chapel on a hill in some woods, we crossed a bridge, continued for a couple of kilometers on the road, then turned onto a forest track and we drove another kilometer and stopped in a narrow lane. I parked the car there.

M: Where did you go after that?

W: We walked down a path; we had to go in single file but I could see she was taking me to a building. It was a little wooden house like a cabin, only nicer.

M: What did you feel?

W: At the time it seemed real, but everything was so luminously beautiful that I can't help wondering whether it was part of the delusion, like Charlotte.

With respect to the medications, here's what a care professional friend of mine had to say:

Quote:
With those drugs, she could be either bipolar or schizophrenic. They are all available in IM (shot) form. That and the 47 month hospitalization tell me she was pretty sick or the mayor of crazytown if you prefer. Also one of them is only available in Canada, not in the US market.


Flupenthixol is the one unavailable in the US. Apparently it is "used mainly for the [treatment] of hallucinations and paranoia [related to] bipolar disorder."

I would suspect that jamesi will be getting a package but since he is in Canada.....that might be causing a delay.

Flupenthixol, in German called "Flupentixol", is available in Germany.

*still hoping w/fingers crossed!*


well if there's a 3/1, there's likely at least two more out there. 3/2 and 3/3. Maybe a 2/3? Dunno

Newsflash!
Contact from P. Martin!

Do not follow me! I knew you would. I knew you would come over and look around.

I have seen your friends; walking down the street and looking for the apartments.

And you know what? They have been so close. I have been so close...

But you shouldn’t look for me. Instead you should look for the truth.
To get started, you should consider the items that you are already holding in your hands.

As a sign of my ongoing support I will grant you one question at this time.

Be careful since this email address allows you to send only one single email to me. All other emails will never reach me.

Discuss your question with the others now so that you all can pick your one question before contacting me.

P.Martin


Okay - we're obviously missing something. What should we ask him (him?)?

P.S. I removed the email address because it looks like it's a Spamgourmet address, and it really will only allow one or two messages through and then dispose of any more, so I wanted to make sure nobody accidentally jumped the gun. Smile
