The Key To Entry


With the brief injunction from my mother to ensure I spoke up or suffer the consequences I returned to the consulting room of Dr M. We took our seats and he smiled before adjusting his suit trousers, pulling them up at the thigh. I cast a quick glance to his nether regions but no hole had yet emerged.

“Now Mr Tudor, we did not make much progress last week. It is of no concern. I wondered if you perhaps felt more amenable to speaking with me on this occasion?”

I started to nod and then spoke.

“Very well.”

“Excellent. What would you like to talk about?” he asked.

“Why am I here as in why am I sat in your consulting room,” I clarified before he started providing me with some smart alec response as to the meaning of my existence. I knew why my family had insisted that I see Dr M and more recently underline the necessity of speaking to him, but I wanted to know what he thought. That way I would be better prepared to deflect him.

“Why do you think you are here with me?” he answered casually. Marvellous. He was one of those people who answered a question with another question.

“I asked first,” I pointed out. He nodded.

“Your family are concerned about you.” I snorted which seemed to take him by surprise.

“Those bastards only care about themselves.”

“Why do you say that?” asked Dr M seizing on my remark.

“It does not matter, go on, you were saying.”

“Your family are concerned about you. I met with them and they provided me with background information. I am aware that you are a high achiever and have always been so. Your family are concerned however that you stop at nothing to get what you want, that you have disdain for most people and you leave a trail of carnage in your wake. I think that is a succinct way of putting it. They want me to discuss this with you and to receive my opinion.” he explained.

“It’s bullshit all of it,” I remarked. My voice was low but the venom was tangible. Dr M remained silent.

“I have no idea what they are talking about. I stop at nothing to get what I want? They have never complained about my achievements before. They don’t like it that I am outshining them. That is the problem here. They always do this. Try and make their problems my problems, I am sick and tired of it. I have forged my own path and done bloody well too and all they want to do is bring me down. It is jealousy. That’s why I have little to do with them. Did they tell you that? I bet they tried to make out that I am aloof and never attend family gatherings didn’t they? They never invite me to them. I keep in touch most with my younger brother and he tells me about these gatherings and I always find out after the event. Did my younger brother speak to you?”

Dr M nodded.

“Who else?” I asked.

“Both your parents, your sister, your younger brother and your cousin, Charlotte.”

“Huh, the usual cabal. All of them are liars. Do you have any idea what it is like having to put up with all of them? My god it is a wonder that I am a success. My mother is always trying to pin the blame for her shortcomings on me. She would love to plant a microchip in my head and control me. That would be ideal for her. She has controlled my father for years. He isn’t a bad fellow really but he fell under her spell and believes anything she says and if he dares not to well let’s just say he has suffered the consequences too many times before so he has learned his lesson. It’s weak of him and I hate him for being like that. He should stand up to her rather than be her metaphorical punching bag. Always tries to keep the peace at first and then takes her side. He is brainwashed and my sister is just as bad. Jesus she always defers to my mother, but then she could never make a decision for herself. So Charlie has weighed in as well has she? Do you know why doctor M? It is because she wants me for herself and I won’t let that happen. Bet they did not tell you that did they? She is totally in love with me and because I have rejected her this is how she goes about paying me back by making up lies about me. I would not put it past that harpy to try and section me you know. You don’t want to believe anything that lot say to you.”

Dr M was jotting down the odd note as I spoke. Yes, make some notes Dr M and you can tell them what I think of them. How dare they? How bastard dare they make out like I am the one with the problem. I should be used to it by now but it still infuriates me. I stood up, agitated at this unwarranted attack on me.

“This is what they always do doctor. I am the one who was suffered at their hands. Years of it but they twist it around and try to pin the blame on me. I have made the best of a bad hand and they cannot stand to see me doing well so they conjure up this. Liars the lot of them.”

I was pacing up and down in front of the fireplace and fighting to resist the urge to grab one of the logs and hurl it at the large mirror which hung above the fireplace.

“I wish they were all dead doctor, you have no idea. The times I have wished that they would get wiped out in some car accident or a building falls on them when they are inside. They have made my life hell and just as I am pulling free of them they pull this stunt. I hate them. I am surprised at my brother joining in with this as well, I thought he had some sense.”

“Your brother expressed considerable concern about you and wants to help you,” offered Dr M.

“I don’t need any help. I suggest you fill your sessions with them. You will have plenty of material for your shrink times or whatever publication you write for. My mother is a control freak with a drink problem,my father is spineless, my sister is a professional victim oh yes, ask her about her failed marriage but make sure you have the bleeding heart and violins to hand. My cousin, well as I said, she is a lecherous nymphomaniac and as for my brother, he has gone down in my estimation joining this cabal of perfidy.”

I spat the words out as I waved my arms around, windmilling through the air. I felt a little better for this explosion of annoyance and I returned to my seat and sat down. Dr M was still writing.

“So Dr M there really is nothing to see here. I know you will want to make some money from us and I respect that, you are like me, you see an opportunity and exploit it. Nothing wrong with that. Let me give you a tip. You need to suggest working with those liars and parking your involvement with me. You have nothing to achieve here but as for them, well you will make a fortune sorting out the quagmire that is their lives.”

I sat back and smiled as Dr M continued to write. I had spoken up just as she had urged. I had done as I was told. Again. This time though I was fighting back.

    H.G. I seem to be missing some crucial information. In your article on Death you wrote “I have only attended one funeral in my life and that was my father.”  However in this article you write about your father in the present tense and in another article you wrote that your mother and father were paying for the Dr. Can you please expand on this.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      My father was alive. Then he died.

  2. Pati says:

    HG you really showed that you couldn’t care less about your family members, wanted then dead in car accident wow no empathy .
    But you are upset that your dad could have been different since your mom was a N. And he put up with her. Now you know how we feel when we need to stand up to our N. The problem is they wont let us as they are control freaks and reject it. Your dad tried and I can understand.
    You really showed your anger wanted to throw the log though .Good luck with your sessions in the future HG!

  3. Lorelei says:

    He’s on meth probably.

    1. santaann1964 says:

      No he clearly stated cocaine and painkillers.

      1. Lorelei says:

        Thanks Santaann.

  4. arcola6035 says:

    HG, I found this very interesting. I’m thinking this may be silly to ask, but do you have any other posts that talk more about your family and your past? Thanks

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Yes and in particular read my books

  5. AR says:

    Is what you said about your cousin true?

    1. HG Tudor says:


  6. kel2day says:

    Do you see it differently now? From reading this, and not knowing you or them in real life, I could see how your family would be concerned about you. It sounds like you were filled with fury and mistrust, and I think they were looking out for your benefit. I’m not sure why they would do it otherwise. Your brother was especially concerned about you, and you know he truly cares about you. Your mother does probably derive pleasure from agitating you, but she’s a narcissist, so you can understand why she does what she does. You’re a narcissist too, so you landed on your feet and are even better off for it. I guess you win.

  7. santaann1964 says:

    The doctor got some truth. Does she understand any of it as of yet? Do you use drugs?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Define “drugs”.

      1. santaann1964 says:

        Crack, heroin, pain killers, cocaine! I doubt it but I thought I would ask.

        1. HG Tudor says:

          No. No. Yes. Yes.

          1. santaann1964 says:

            So honest. Hmmmmmm. I guess the drugs enchanted your ability to feel superior. As I learned addiction or drug use. Do you use them to feel different?

          2. santaann1964 says:

            I meant enchance

          3. HG Tudor says:

            No, I use them to get more done.

          4. santaann1964 says:

            Don’t believe it! Sorry . Take an energy drink! 😐

          5. santaann1964 says:

            Wait let me change that comment. Yes I believe you that you use cocaine and painkillers to get things done ✅ BUT that’s not the whole truth. You see there is some truth but not all! 😘

          6. HG Tudor says:


          7. Pati says:

            Santaan,they say energy drink cause heart attacks ! I just eat chocolate gives me some energy! Or coffee !, I need to get some more energy to leave my N so I can run run run

          8. mommypino says:

            HG, cocaine causes long term health problems. Just saying…

          9. HG Tudor says:

            Only for the weak.

          10. lisk says:

            I’m shocked at this. I imagined that, besides a fe cocktails, you treated your body like a temple.

          11. HG Tudor says:

            No other people treat it like a temple, they are called worshippers.

          12. Pati says:

            I don’t know if I am reading correctly Did you just say yes to cocaine ? Correct me if I am wrong

          13. Kim e says:

            He did say yes to cocaine. You will learn hear that there really are no secrets. We have to speak the truth to learn from others experiences. Sometimes it is shocking but necessary. Like it took me a long time to wrap my head around the fact that HG is not an angel………LOL

          14. Pati says:

            Kim, most definitely honesty is very important .I know HG would never lie in his blog. I agree we need to learn from.each other. Even us empaths are not Angel’s sometimes .

          15. santaann1964 says:

            Come on, he’s a Narcissist, he does lie. Lol

          16. HG Tudor says:

            Not here, I do not need to because you do not know who I am.

          17. santaann1964 says:

            Ok I believe u! Thank you for the Empath fuel Mr.H

          18. HG Tudor says:

            Fuel is the sole preserve of narcissists.

          19. Kim e says:

            Pati, I am an angel on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the months that end in the 27 and every other leap year.

          20. Pati says:

            Good for you Kim !

          21. Violetta says:

            HG on cocaine is coals to Newcastle. The traders on the floor NYSE have always been partial to it, because it makes them more aggressive (!)

          22. Lorelei says:

            Thank goodness for no to the first two. Yuck. Yuck.

          23. kel2day says:

            We’ve asked before how he managed to get so much done, and now we know. Lack of sleep and cocaine aids his time management. Narcs always cheat, lol! I’ll stick with the hard way, lots of sleep and besides I hate recreational drugs – talk about a rabbit hole!

          24. Pati says:

            Kel2day, my life is super duper busy too,but when I get a chance I would sleep in till noon anyday. Which I did today tackling this bad cold.

          25. kel2day says:

            Pati hope you get well soon, but at least there’s something good about a cold! Lots of sleep!!

          26. Pati says:

            Exactly Kelly, yes I am lying down as we speak. Lazy day today . Thank you hugs

          27. kel2day says:

            🤗 😘
