Me: "This patient's asthma attack is like nothing I've ever seen before. She's breathing really strangely."

Not me: "That's because she's faking it."

"But why would she want to fake an asthma attack? We're going to end up intubating her. Who wants to be intubated?"

"She's a psych patient. Why should what she's doing make sense?"

"Because even a psych patient shouldn't want to be intubated."

"She wants the attention."

"And you're 100% sure she's faking it?"

"99%. But you should still treat her like she's faking it."

"And what if she's not?"

"Boy who cried wolf. Serves her right."


"Yes. I have other patients. Page me if she dies."


  1. Did this actually happen? What happened to the "patient"?

  2. I want to find the paid directory submission service ,which can make strategical internet business project, based on directory submission. I strive to win my web contest.
