Really real mental health lunch time post.
Psych doc in this place: “ if you’re having any thoughts at all of harming yourself at all we will have to put you in a crisis unit.”
Me in my head: “dumb fucker, did you even glance at my chart, even a little. Even a glance? Did. I. Stutter. any of the dozen times they’ve asked me that today?”
Psychiatrists are strange little beings. They really don’t know much of anything except medications and count on the nurses and the social workers to do the actual work.
Don’t get me wrong. Medications are super important and therefore so are the pdocs but holy shit.
And no, I’m not heading to the crisis unit. The social workers and nurses seem to know what they are doing though.
