         (Woman enters, can be any age)

The medication does help, doctor.  I can feel it....see it in other's faces.  They look at me and I don't see fear in their eyes anymore.  That should be a good sensation, I know. 

It would make me happy....if I were normal.

But I'm not.

That I know, too.

You see, the sad voices, they're not shouting any more...not screaming, not reminding me of all I have to be sad about.......

Now....the sad is just ……whispering.

Faintly, like a breeze in the leaves of a tree nearby, but not too close ......

And you say you want me to take more of this medicine......that if I'm better with a little, then more.....more will make me even more better......

I don't know.....I'll have to think about it......a little more…

You'll have to ....give me some more time.

        (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

The problem is......I like the whispering sad.......

         (Exits into the sad)
