Meeting Arthur

April 2nd, 2009

Arthur is a nomad, like many of the people he works with. He is also a L.I.C.S.W. I met him at Bread and Jams. I had been going there for a while and felt compelled to comment on the staff, especially Carlos. I had just met Arthur and didn’t know what to think of him. I told him that the staff made the place what it is. I meant it as a good thing. Arthur said, “I’ll take that as a compliment.” I don’t know much about what’s in the  DSM  [Official Site] [Wikipedia], but I guessed that his diagnosis had the word ‘Narcissism’  in it. I can say that because I was not under the cone of confidentiality then. I don’t know what I can say now except that he is an interesting case, but I’m concerned that I may not be able to do him any good.
