Transcript of Session between Charles Balis, M.D. and Mr. Decker Jenkins, Thursday, October 2, 1997 at 10:00 am.

Dr. Balis: Hello? This is Dr. Balis. Is there any one there?
Mr. Jenkins: Hello, Doctor.
Dr. Balis: Hello? Could you speak up, please? I'm having a very difficult time hearing you.
Mr. Jenkins: Doctor, I hope you remember me, because I really need your help again.
Dr. Balis: Who is this?
Mr. Jenkins: It's Decker. Decker Jenkins.
Dr. Balis: Decker Jenkins? How are you? It sure has been a long time.
Mr. Jenkins: I guess it has. I don't really know. Time doesn't seem to exist for me any more. However, it does seem like it has been a long summer--almost a lifetime.
Dr. Balis: How do you mean, Decker?
Mr. Jenkins: Well, a lot has happened since I stormed out of your office last. I was a very angry young man at that time. Things have changed for me recently. Well, there was some change at least.
Dr. Balis: Can you give me a for instance?
Mr. Jenkins: Well first, before I begin to tell all, I need to know if I can begin my sessions with you again?
Dr. Balis: I'll be happy to see you again, Decker. But there can be no more disappearances--no more storming out of my office and cutting off all communication for months at a time, understand? Now, if that's acceptable...
Mr. Jenkins: Well, I've learned that there are no guarantees in life, so I can't promise that will never happen again. But I can tell you, Doctor, that I have no intention of going through hell and back again. I will do everything in my power to keep my end of the bargain.
Dr. Balis: Good. Now, Decker, you sound very down. Are you all right?
Mr. Jenkins: Well, I will feel much better as soon as I get back there.
Dr. Balis: Where are you, Decker?
Mr. Jenkins: I'm in Chicago. I've been here for a while now. I found my father, Doctor Balis.
Dr. Balis: In Chicago?
Mr. Jenkins: Yes. I also found out a lot about why I am the way I am. I realize now...I mean I fully realize that the only way for me to survive in this world is to have help from people. The only problem is that I don't trust anyone. Except you, of course. You have done nothing but good for me. I don't understand why anyone would want to do good by me, but you have nonetheless.
Dr. Balis: There were others that wanted to help you, Decker. Your boss...uh, I don't remember...
Mr. Jenkins: Knopff? He means well, I guess. But after what I did, I doubt he will be speaking to me again.
Dr. Balis: Hmm. It seems we have a lot to talk about.
Mr. Jenkins: Yes, Doctor, we do. And I would like to start as soon as possible. I will be back in San Francisco tomorrow. If it is all right with you, I would like to start as soon as I get back.
Dr. Balis: Are you in trouble, Decker?
Mr. Jenkins: When I get back, Doctor.
Dr. Balis: We can meet Tuesday, October 7th, at 11 am.
Mr. Jenkins: That'll be fine. Thank you, Doctor Balis. Goodbye.
Dr. Balis: Goodbye, Decker.
