An unusual meeting. After complaining of fatigue and confusion caused by keeping up with details in reality and dream state, patient claims that during a hostage situation at a mental hospital, a paranoid schizophrenic patient injected him with a Ketamine-like anesthetic. WOW. Patient denies experiencing any form of hallucination of course, while continuing to maintain that he is experiencing two equally valid realities.
The positive: patient experienced fear of paranoid schizophrenic patient in his dream, who was threatening to blow up the mental hospital and his hostages along with it. Clearly, patient is aligning his own mental state with that of the hostage taker. In the dream, patient's well-being depended on neutralizing the hostage taker - thus acknowledging the danger of his own mental state, and taking action to overcome it. Thus patient is dreaming of madness, and the possibility of overcoming it.
The negative: First of all, I doubt patient would have inquired about anesthetic if he wasn't hallucinating, so there's that. Secondly, when given a chance in the dream to ameliorate hostage situation with the truth - advised by the dream world psychiatrist - patient chose to back down, propagating a heroic scenario where he saved the day with untruths. When facing the heart of his condition, he retreats. Will follow this concern through next week for careful consideration during next report to PD.
