Perhaps I moved too quickly with the patient today. Seems he was ready to open up to me, even talking about fond memories. But I pushed for him to trust me with more, and he clammed right back up. Seems afraid that my gestures of friendship had ulterior motives.
I was right about Patient 465791. Patient 389645 today admitted that the two of them have been talking. I am afraid he influenced her.
Perhaps the influence will do them both good. One talking too much, the other not enough. One too trusting, the other not enough. It will have to be monitored though.
