I got a letter from a psychiatrist

In this episode of What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast, I receive a message from a psychiatrist who identifies some of the hurtful things my son was saying a couple episodes ago in Won’t Be Ashamed as relating to the Oedipus Complex. She thinks maybe he’s having Oedipal thoughts as he begins to identify with me, and that makes a lot of sense.

She wanted to know what comics I buy my son- it’s The Comic Garage’s Super Box. He just got a new one yesterday, and he was pretty excited.
