Our Wiggy patient is already gone.
I predicted she wouldn't last in here for a week, due to her special blend of problems: Bipolar illness, OCD, and Multiple Sclerosis, and by crackey if she didn't flip out sooner than expected.
She threw one fit after another the whole weekend until she was packed up and sent the heck out.
One of our therapists told me that sometimes the MS shorts out the brain and causes erratic behavior, but with all her other mental illnesses, she just can't miss displaying this kind of behavior. It's a sad case, and this patient is sort of cute to look at, but her behavior is so unbelievably bad that it starts to mess with your compassion. It's hard to feel sorry for someone who is so in your face and insulting to everyone around her. She really can't help it and should be pitied.
But she's someone elses "problem patient" now!!
I'm sure the nurses did a happy dance in celebration.
Hope you are all having a happy Monday!
