<b>ASSESSMENT: </b>Writer's Block - Severe
Chrissy appears normal on exam today. However, based on her reported symptoms, I feel she is experiencing severe Writer's Block.
I spent considerable time with the patient reviewing this condition and its proper treatment. Treatment prescribed as documented below. Chrissy was informed that the remedy may be perceived as dry and distasteful when it is first experienced. She will need to persist in applying it until it becomes sweet. At that point, she can adjust its application to whatever amount she desires. Use it at least once daily for full effect. The treatment is not harmful in any way and she may continue it indefinitely.
One hour of heartfelt prayer per day for seven days, then as needed.
Return to the clinic if symptoms persist or worsen.
T. Great Physician, MD
