What Psychiatrists Say & What They Mean

Permanent Linkby CrackedGirl on Mon Jul 25, 2011 3:36 pm

Your case is very complex and I would advise we refer you = I can't be bothered to assess you myself.

How are you feeling? = I don't really care

And does that thought make sense to you? = You are clearly mad as a hatter

What is your latest lithium level? = I cant be bothered to look it up myself

Don't worry, things won't get worse = Haha, yes they will

I think we should adjust x medication = I am doing it anyway and if you say no you are being uncooperative and/or lack insight

I think we should discuss this with the home treatment team = You are going to be admitted

When is your next CPA meeting? = You are annoying me and I want to see you sweat

How do you feel about that overdose? = Why did you take paracetamol you stupid person?



Just some that come to mind. I am def not anti psych but knowing what Drs think I can imagine this is some of what goes through their heads. Note this thought process is not exclusive to psychiatrists it is a general medical habit, I think born out of stress. But not so fun when you are on the other side of it. Tho I promise there are good, kind and nice Drs out there.

Thanks for this! It's so true.
Blame it on me, but know that I won't regret one iota.

Its scary to think about :( coz i think most of the time this is exactly right. My doctor is lovely and i think??? (i like to think) that she does care, but the mental health team in my area are pretty crap..at least in my experience.

I concur! Excellent list, Cracked!!

Here's one that got pulled on me two years back after an accidental overdose:

Toxicologist: "Ok I'm clearing you to leave the hospital; the pdoc is going to evaluate you and then you are free to go"

Translation: "Hey, Dumba$$, you OD'd, so the pdoc is going to nod and smile to whatever you say and then tell you you're going to the psych hospital because you're a liability and for legal reasons we must commit you for 72 hours"
Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall. - Confucius

How do you feel about a voluntary admission? = If you say no then hahaha the butterfly nets and MHA assessors will be on their way...
