Psych Ward

Hosted ByRoss Shields

PSYCH WARD is the bastion of super-strange psycho Ross Shields. As "The Rossman", Ross was fired by some of the biggest alternative music radio stations in the USA for being uncontrollable, insane, and a danger to himself and others. Safely locked up in his own Psych Ward, Ross is now simultaneously superintendent, doctor, and patient, with a cast of characters including Nurse Sonja,Reverend Hibachi and an unwitting cast of supporting characters. Not for the faint of mind.

Trichotillomania: worse than getting bit by a pigeon at Winn-Dixie?

Dr Ross and Nurse Sonja Watkins discuss Trichotillomania and interview several patients.  Dr Ross shares his near-death experience with an aggressive pigeon at Winn-Dixie.

Before we get to the Trichotillomania calls, let’s check in with you.

Are you OK?  Maybe you should take off your jumpsuit and lay down on the table and let Dr Ross and Nurse Sonja take a good, long look at your medulla oblongata.  

Dr Ross saves a 9 year old kid from being a victim of Polio.  Stay away from the Pearl River unless you want to become a Polio person.  

Have you seen Dr Ross’ eyelashes?  Please put them in a Ziploc bag so that you don’t catch Rispoli.  Call the hotline and give us the coordinates of the bag, because we can send someone over with a gurney to pick that up.

Patient phone calls:

Rebecca is on the line.  Dr Ross takes 3000mg of valium and then he takes her call.  Rebecca developed Trichotillomania at 12.  She shares her story with us and patiently listens to Dr. Ross.

Jennifer calls in and gives us her background.  After we confirm that she has a uterus, she talks about having Trichotillomania for 20 years.  That’s a long time to suffer with it, so Dr. Ross wants to go ahead and treat her.  He might also treat himself.  After all, Dr. Ross is the patient, doctor, and superintendent at Psych Ward.

We’ll hang up and listen.
