Hi, I am back.
It’s been a while. I know.
Today is the 2nd day of Psychiatric Posting, and it’s been a dramatic day, for me.
During clinical in the teaching room, my friend presented about delusional disorder case where the wife had idea of jealousy-infidelity towards his husband. However, in the physical examination part, she had forgotten to calculate the BMI of the patient.
So, SIr G asked somebody else to do it. A did the calculation, so did I.
I took out my phone out of my pocket, and press calculator. “Oh underweight, I said to myself”
Then I kept it back.
Not long after that, beeping sound is heard, TATADOCOMO sent me a message. I quickly, put my phone on silent mode.
Okay. Let me tell you the seating arrangement first..
So, I was sitting in front of Sir G. It felt so awkward to maintain eye contact 24/7,( plus I could not think of answer of his bombastic questions), so I tend to shift my gaze downward and hold my pencil case, stared at it blankly.
But most of the time, I was taking down points that he had been mentioned on my notebook. My hands are on the desk and I face downward.
So I heard he kept throwing sarcasm about some of us are keen playing with phone.
How “attention is arrousal but ill sustained” in some people. I had no clue.
Toward the end of the class, he looked me in the eye, and said
“You are sitting right in front of me, but I know you’re playing with that. I heard the beeping sound”
I was like “NOOOOOOOOO. I didn’t”
“Then you must be day dreaming”
My group mates, as expected, they were bursting out laughing. I didn’t say anything, trust me my phone is in my pocket all the time. I know it’s no point of being defensive in this situation.
Ai even told me that I had no sight at all, as I didn’t realize that Dr G had talking bout me an hour ago.
Dear Dr G,
I think you are the one who are the one who paranoid. Just like the patient.
How I wish I can say that,
