The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat Dr.P, a musical enthusiast, was a man who lived his entire life through music. Dr.P’s family began to notice something peculiar about the way he was unable to recognize anything for what is was. I decided to pay him a visit and decide for myself what the problem truly was. When I reached Dr.P’s house, I was approached with a well-organized home with incredible musical inspirations all around. Dr.P greeting me with a tune describing my shoes then my pants, shirt and my nose. Never once did Dr.P address me as a whole, as if he was only able to see me as a unconstructed potato head. He seemed unable to grasp the concept of my persona. After being greeted with the wonderful tune, I decided to run some tests…show more content…
I have been assigned to 5 cases, one of them being a group of 4 who handicapped men.
