A compilation of actual conversations with
My MSOP Guardians
So, you’re new to treatment...
With all due respect, I completed 3 years of treatment before I arrived here
Which is why we put you right into Phase 2
But you give Phase 2’s to everyone, even people who refuse to do treatment
Well, anyway, you are beginning Phase 2...
I was actually finishing Phase 2 before... ready for Phase 3
But the records show you haven’t completed any of our required tests
I completed and passed 2 maintenance polygraphs, I’m ready for my Full Disclosure test
We want you to take another maintenance poly first, just to get comfortable with the room
I’m willing to do that as long as it doesn’t delay my Full Disclosure test
It’s not called “Full Disclosure” anymore it’s now “Detailed Sexual History”
No matter what it’s called, I completed and presented that at your other program
You need to redo the paperwork again, here it is
Okay, but uhm, it appears as if this is the wrong paperwork
You’re arguing with us an awful lot
I’m advocating for myself
You rebut everything we say
I try to correct factual errors before they become documented as facts
See, you’re doing it again.
Oops. Sorry, I’ll work on that.
We think you need more time in treatment first
But I’m not getting more treatment, I’m just repeating classes I already passed
You still need to complete 3 steps before you get advanced
I’m ready, willing and able to do those 3 things to get advanced
You know Treatment’s more than a “to-do” check-list to complete
But you’re the one who said I need to do these 3 things to go to Phase 3!
Your sense of entitlement is slowing your progress in treatment
You’re right, I’m so sorry
Now you’re just placating us to get ahead
No, I’m not...
Now you’re arguing again
I’m not arguing!
Yes you are.
I give up!!
See, we were right
