"Hey doc, I’ve been holding my pee a long time, cause I knew you’d want some of it" – ER Triage Patient

"In a had to be there funny moment, a pt told my attending she was the one who had cognitive impairment"

"Last week I was anxious, two transfers, clinic and a pt at the outpt clinic told me, "Dr —, You’re going to be okay".  The attending laught so much b/c the pt needed to calm me down!

" ‘You don’t look old enough to be a psychiatrist’; so I referred her to the eye clinic "

"I had a patient’s mom in the ER "drinking" cornstarch out of the box with a straw!"

" ‘What the hell kind of psychiatrist are you?’   This was while doing a rectal during my Internal Medicine month"
