[OFF CAMERA] Why did your mom feel you should come in and talk with me today?

[MRS HOUSTON:] She was worried. Mom says I get moody this time of year, every year. I don’t know. Maybe.

[OFF CAMERA:] How are you feeling, when?

[PATIENT:] Not great.

[OFF CAMERA:] What’s not great?

[PATIENT:] Huh. Just down. I’m not doing so well.

[OFF CAMERA:] How’s school?


[OFF CAMERA:] Just ok?

[PATIENT:] Yeah. I left the program at school. I mean I did and… I’m not doing so well.

[OFF CAMERA:] Are the courses difficult?

[PATIENT:] I understand everything. The teachers are getting to be a bit of a pain. The classes aren’t lustrous (Sighs). I’m in this special business program, where you have to come up with a mock company. I just… I just can’t seem to get it done. That, and all my other projects. I’m already late on two of them.

[OFF CAMERA:] Are you having difficult concentrating?

[PATIENT:] Yeah. I’ll read the headlines in the newspaper and like, five seconds later, I can’t remember what I read. And my classes, when I leave the room, I don’t what we were learning about.

[OFF CAMERA:] Are you having any irregular sleeping or eating patterns?

[PATIENT:] (Sighs) I’ve gained ten pounds. Umm… I’ve slept through five of my classes this month if that answers your question.

[OFF CAMERA:] Have you been able to make any friends?

[PATIENT:] [Shrugs] Yeah. Almost immediately. The people are a lot of fun.

[OFF CAMERA:] What do you do with them?

[PATIENT:] Lately, not so much of anything.

[OFF CAMERA:] What happened?

[PATIENT:] Well, it was a blast when I arrived in August. I made friends almost immediately. We went to concerts and shows, we hung out. And we had a lot of fun.

[OFF CAMERA:] You don’t do any of that now?

[PATIENT:] They kind of annoy me a little bit. I mean nothing I can’t get over. They got really dull. They suddenly started playing board games… and then, things also got busy and with the weather, I don’t want to go outside.

[OFF CAMERA:] Do you particularly dislike the cold weather?

[PATIENT:] It’s not like I have a burning passionate hatred for the cold. I’ve always fretted fall and winter. I’m a summer girl. I like the beach and convertibles. And now…

[OFF CAMERA:] You can’t do any of that.

[PATIENT:] No. In fact you can’t do anything at all.

[OFF CAMERA:] Can you tell me what it is you dislike about this time of the year?

[PATIENT:] It’s dark. And grey. And miserable. The whole city changes, it’s not the same city that I loved in August. September was good. It was beautiful. Sunny, crisp days and, the leaves changing at the end of the month and then it just started getting worse and worse. Even… the snow is grey and black. I didn’t know snow got like that, city snow. I thought snow was white and beautiful. But city snow isn’t like that. Everything is grey. It’s miserable.
