A funny psychiatric bit from the Daily Express (Sep 04)

'Talking To The Dead'
Two mental health charity workers visited a patient, chatted with her and then left without realising she was dead. An inquest heard the visitors let themselves into the home of a paranoid schizophrenic and found her sitting in the kitchen with the curtains drawn and her back to them. They left when she failed to respond. 'She didn't seem to want us there,' one health worker was quoted as saying.' JH
