That's what She said

Me: So how does your ex-wife feel about this change?

Client: Oh, she's okay.  She's come to terminologies with it.

If you haven't seen it yet, go on over and read this post by SocialJerk about ethics and working in the social work field.  I couldn't have said it better myself.

You know it's bad when...

...you are writing case notes and keep thinking you have put information from the wrong appointment because you're pretty sure this stuff just happened yesterday.  Which it did, because for once you are up to date on your notes.  And it feels so wrong!

Double whammy at the hospital today.  Two of my clients are there, and there is a case conference for one today, so I'm going to try to visit the other afterwards.

In one case, the client was doing so well and getting a lot of things going on in his life.  So many things in fact, that I believe he stressed himself out to the point of triggering a psychotic episode.

In the other case, the client has been unwell for a while, but this is the first hospitalization required in over 10 years.  Sigh...

At least both have been moved out of intensive and onto the general psych unit.

The Greatest Day

Client quote of the day for sure:

Client: It's the greatest day of my life!  I can't hear anything anymore!
Me: What? You can't hear?
Client: I can't hear the voices anymore, they're gone!
