Firm Belief

GruntDoc reports from ER:

"Patient presents with CC ‘all my organs have been removed’. When queried as to how they’d be alive with no organs, answers ‘they put someone else’s’ in’. After exam showing no signs of drug or alcohol abuse, and notable for none but trivial scars of living, I pointed out that I’ve seen lots of patients with organ transplants, and they have rather remarkable scars, but you don’t. ‘They replaced my skin after’ was the response. There’s always an answer that refutes rationality."
