My Manic Patinent
I had a 23 year old truly manic female come in by EMS. She had been manic for days. Off her lithium and talking a mile a minute. EMS was called by a neighbor when she stormed into his apartment and started throwing his stuff off his balcony because she felt it was all evil.
Me: "Hello ma'am, my name is ER Doc."
Patient: "I know who you are. You were in my dream."
Me: "Oh really?" (expecting a compliment)
Patient: "Yes, you were satan burning on the cross!"
Me: "Who me!? Are you sure you don't have me confused with someone else?"
Patient: "No, you were definitely satan burning on the cross. You are evil."
Me: "But I am nice. And it is the day before Easter. I was even going to go to church tomorrow. Maybe I was an angel going to save the person burning"
Patient: "No you are satan and you were burning on the cross.
Me: "OK, well I will have to call Psych Doc then."
