Daily Joke: Doctor Trying to Prove to Patient with Mental Illness That He Is Not Dead
A man with a severe mental illness believed he was dead. His family had grown very worried about him and sent him to a mental illness hospital to help him realize he was not dead.
However, it was slow going. He still believed he was dead. He would not participate in group activities and therapy and ate very little as he did not believe there was a point to do these things because he was dead.
One of the doctors assigned to him really wanted to help him understand that he was not dead so that he could live life again. He came up with a plan to try and help his patient.
During one of their one-on-one therapy sessions, the doctor asked, "So do dead people bleed?"
The man let out a loud sigh and said, "Of course they do not bleed. Blood is what keeps the body alive, so no, a dead person would not bleed."
The doctor then proceeded to take out a needle and pricked the patient's finger. He then began to bleed. The patient stared at his bleeding finger and had an expression of absolute shock and surprise.
"Wow!" he exclaimed, "I guess the dead do bleed!"
ANOTHER MENTAL HOSPITAL JOKE
One day, a mother checked her son into a mental hospital after she had grown worried about him when he traded their cow for a handful of "magic beans."
After the psychiatrist ordered a few tests and looked at the results, he informed the mother of her son's diagnosis. He explained, "Ma'am, I'm afraid your son has a strong case of schizophrenia."
"Oh my, I knew there was something terribly wrong when he insisted those beans were magic,” the mother said as she wiped away a tear.
"Oh no, that's not it. Those beans are magic," replied the doctor.
The mother was shocked and said, "Well then, what's the problem?"
The doctor responded, "Well, ma’am, you see, Jack and the beans talk."
