MEDICINE/Quote of the Week

Mandy* (a 24-year-old woman in a manic state): So you're a medical student? Where do you go to school?

Me: Yeah, I go to University of Vermont.

Mandy: Are you a working girl?

Me: No, I'm a medical student.

Mandy: Were you ever a working girl?

Me: No, why?

Mandy: You look like you could be.


"Other elements of mania may include delusions (of grandeur, potential, or otherwise), hypersensitivity, hypersexuality, hyper-religiosity, hyperactivity, talkativeness, an internal pressure to keep talking (over-explanation) or rapid speech, grandiose ideas and plans, and decreased need for sleep (e.g. feeling rested after 3 or 4 hours of sleep)."
