Copyright © 2011 by Rowohlt Verlag GmbH, Reinbek bei Hamburg Eine Weile nachdem er das Wort Pause ausgesprochen hatte, drehte ich durch und landete im Krankenhaus. Er sagte nicht: Ich will dich nie wiedersehen, oder: Es ist aus, doch nach dreißig Jahren Ehe reichte Pause, um aus mir eine Geisteskranke zu machen, in deren Hirn die Gedanken platzten, wild herumfuhrwerkten und von‑einander abprallten wie Popcorn in einer Mikrowellen‑tüte. Diese traurige Feststellung machte ich in meinem Bett in der Psychiatrie, so mit Haldol zugedröhnt, dass ich mich kaum bewegen wollte. Die garstigen rhyth‑mischen Stimmen waren leiser geworden, aber nicht verschwunden, und wenn ich die Augen schloss, sah ich Comicfiguren über rosa Hügel sausen und in blaue Wäl‑der verschwinden. Dr. P. diagnostizierte dann eine akute vorübergehende psychotische Störung, auch bekannt als Durchgangssyndrom, was bedeutet, dass man wirklich verrückt ist, aber nicht lange. Wenn es länger als einen Monat anhält, braucht man ein anderes Etikett. Offenbar gibt es für diese spezielle Form von Störung häufig einen Auslöser oder «Stressor», wie es im psychiatrischen Jargon heißt. In meinem Fall war das Boris, oder vielmehr die Tatsache, dass eben kein Boris da war, dass Boris seine Pause machte. Sie behielten mich anderthalb Wochen da, dann ließen sie mich gehen. Eine Zeitlang wurde ich ambulant behandelt, bis ich Frau Dr. S. mit ihrer tiefen musikalischen Stimme, ihrem verhaltenen Lächeln und ihrem guten Ohr für Lyrik fand. Sie stützte mich, stützt mich eigentlich immer noch.
