To Whom It May Concern:
I wish to inform you that the creator of this website, Beth Pittman, has been evaluated by me and diagnosed with what I can only call a delusional obsession with a series of books written by someone she refers to as “Herself” and a show called Outlander. Upon my first meeting with her, “Sassenach”, as she calls herself, indicated to me that she had fallen through time. She also wildly claimed to have deep emotional and personal ties to some people from the 18th century called Jamie & Claire Fraser along with their family, friends, enemies and even their animals. She calls this Jamie person “The King of Men” and has spoken of something called “Droughtlander” which I can only assume is a terrible state of being as she thrashes wildly about when the word is mentioned. It is quite disturbing to watch and I fear she will only spiral further into this delusion unless something is done. When I suggested she read other books or watch other shows, she gave me the most searing glare and started to mumble about hearing drums in the fall as well as seeing a cross on fire. She states these symptoms are caused by what she refers to as echo in the bone disease. I have never heard or read of such a thing. Whatever it is also seems to cause her to want to breathe snow and ashes and, most terrifying to me, she says she must write it all down in her own heart’s blood. I believe she has reached a particularly irreversible and incurable stage of the disease and I have decided to discontinue treatment for my own safety and sanity.
In summary, please read this blog with extreme care, keeping in mind the delusional state of Mrs. Pittman, pardon me, of “Sassenach”. From a clinical standpoint, I believe this incurable condition may be transferable to others who are susceptible to such myths and fairy tales, books and shows. In fact, I have spoken with other professionals who are seeing the same symptoms spreading to other individuals and groups around the world. This appears to be happening particularly in North Carolina, where this echo in the bone disease originated and is where the patient lives. I am dreadfully concerned this could signal the beginning of an epidemic and I have no idea what this means or what the consequences of this delusional obsession will mean to Mrs. Sassenach, excuse me, Mrs. Pittman, or, for that matter, to the entire world moving forward. Proceed, therefore, with extraordinary vigilence as to your own welfare. In fact, Sassenach’s last words to me were “Sláinte” which I believe may have been a curse as I fear I may have contracted the disease and am now feeling quite odd. What is that insane buzzing noise?
