Glued to your seat for 2 years?

Deputies in Ness City, Kansas, responded to a call from a man that said that there was something wrong with his girlfriend. This is what they found in the guy’s bathroom: Deputies said a woman in western Kansas sat on her boyfriend’s toilet for two years, and they’re investigating whether she was mistreated. Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said a man called his office last month to report that something was wrong with his girlfriend. Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman’s skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital. “We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital.” Whipple said. “The hospital removed it. She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body,” Whipple said. “It is hard to imagine. I still have a hard time imagining it myself.” He told investigators he brought his girlfriend food and water, and asked her every day to come out of the bathroom. And her reply would be, “Maybe tomorrow,” Whipple said. According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom.

Shrink Chairs


When I started this blog, I had no idea what I would encounter. For me it was and still is an adventure. Take this example: Saul Robins who studies the chairs the New York City shrinks use to see their patients from…I must confess not the most design chairs, but they may be comfy. Actually they have to be comfy while the shrink seats in it the whole day 🙂

Initial Intake
As Featured in the New York Times House + Home Section
This ongoing body of work examines the chair of the New York psychotherapist from the point of view of their clients.
It is from this vantage point that I am interested in exploring the perceptions, associations, and responses to this very private environment.
For many, the role of the psychotherapist holds significant weight, and the importance given to him or her is one of great influence in many people’s lives.
