    Default I really really really wish I could make this face



    It sums up so many of my emotions, especially at work.

    Me: "Do you use recreational drugs?"
    Patient: "No"
    Me: "Do you take any medications?"
    Patient: "No"
    Me: "I'm going to prescribe you xyz"
    Patient: "No, that might make me feel bad if I take it with my heart medicine. And the last time this happened, I just smoked a bunch of pot and felt better"
    Me:

    Me: "Why did you (staff person) just tell the patient all about your ex-husband, your divorce, your kids, your lunch and your personal medications instead of using therapeutic boundaries?"
    Staff Person: "Well, they asked and didn't like group so I told them about me instead"
    Me:

    Grandma: "Today is the worst day of my life. I've never ever felt so bad. I'm getting really old."
    Me: "Gosh, let's go to the ER. That's terrible"
    Grandma: "No, I'll go to the doctor after I finish eating lunch, and then your aunt is coming over to take me to the YMCA to work out and then I've got Book Club."
    Me:

    I REALLY REALLY wish I could make that face. I just wish I could at least get the eyebrows right. I think I have the mouth part sort of down, and I can raise one eyebrow at a time, which works well for me. *sigh*

    Try it! I mean, w/o the red, but I'm sitting here trying it and can get pretty close.

    You will feel better and they might get scared into being less dumb.

    I do my disapproving face.
    I call it my McKayla Maroney face.
    Sometimes I think my face will stick like that.

    My Mom got me one of these for my desk:

    Yes, that would have been me this morning.

    Client comes in for D&A eval, wants to go to rehab, on our dime. I asked all the appropriate questions up front (Do you have insurance? Have you tried a lower level of care? Are you sure you want inpatient, not outpatient? What about this free alternative program? Yada yada yada) and got all the appropriate answers. Decided to go ahead with whole 2-hour eval anyway, even though something seemed fishy about the whole thing.

    The eval lasted 2 hours and 20 minutes. At 2 hours and 15 minutes in, client thought it convenient to mention that his state parole officer told him that if we don't send him to an inpatient rehab within a day or two, the DOC will pay for him to go to rehab on Friday instead (and he just wanted it to look good for PO that he "sought help on his own first").

    I'm having trouble with the mouth part now. The eyebrows are getting good. I sort of have to glare and raise them at the same time.
    "You told the ER you were going to kill all of them, but you were just joking?"
    "Yeah, I didn't think they'd believe me or anything. Can I go now?"


    "I don't use drugs"
    "Your urine tox screen is positive for just about everything"
    "Oh, I don't know how that got there."
    "You don't know how that got there?"
    "No, I guess I must have been standing next to a bad person or something"

    Hilarious. Sorry about the faces but thanks for the faces. Causing other people to laugh at your life is surely the highest form of sublimation.
