Dear Spin Doctor,
I find myself in something of a pickle and hope that the advise of another medical professional will help.
A project I have been working on for some time on the effects of detoxification is shortly to see the light of day. It has been 10 years since my last critically acclaimed research was published and there have been constant rumors about when my new work would be ready and I am paranoid about how it might be received.
While I rarely move from my local environment in Compton, Claifornia I have kept myself busy in the intervening years especially in assisting in the careers of colleagues, most notably one from Detroit with particular women issues and another with a slight speech impediment from New York. This is not the first time I have assisted in careers of others that have previously seen me treated with attitude and viewed as some kind of dogg keeper while, despite my medical assistance, another colleague died which left me particularly uneasy.
I do self medicate with strong natural remedies but find these often just make me paranoid and somewhat unmotivated. Please doctor I am turning to your for advise as how to deal with these feelings.
Dr Andre Young.
Well Andre, like many of us doctor’s I imagine you are most most productive while in the lab but working all those hours in such a medicated environment can not always be healthy. I would suggest you treat the publication of your new work as the start of your next episode and get away from it all. Break out, get straight outta Compton and feel free to go 1000 miles and runnin’. While many think LA is the place, there is a whole wide world for you out there, so fuck with an Andre day and take some time for yourself. Your dedication to your colleagues is commendable but don’t worry, while your work together is sure to keep their heads ringin’, a little time apart will not mean they forget about Andre but just make them realise that like other collaborative efforts it is a family affair.
As for your self medication it sounds to me like the situation may be getting a little chronic and would like to suggest your own detox.
Best of luck,
