"[Client] has a daughter [name] who is in the care of [client's] mother in Thunder Bay. [Client] reports having no contact with his daughter, and states that he does not wish to have contact. [Client] has indicated that he thinks she is being well looked after and does not wish to disrupt her life."
This man's wife committed suicide in 1999. She had schizophrenia, as does he. I suspect any reminders of her are just to painful.
Sometimes when I stop to actually read what I record in my notes it just makes me sad.
