I hate psych!!

  1. I had a test today. 58 out of 100 questions were psych. I dreaded taking this test because- you guessed it- I HATE PSYCH. I will die a happy woman if I never hear the name Erickson again. And if he weren't already dead I would hunt Freud down and shoot him in the face with a large caliber bullet. Of course, I probably feel that way because I was criticized for my lack of potty training progress and I had a secret longing for my father. Just venting here.

    I believe that's an example of reassuring, which is a nontherapeutic form of communication. Just one of many reasons why I hate the psych rotation.

    Well that's just me...a problematic...nontherapeutic member

    Psych wasn't really my thing either, but I did ok. Best of luck!

    Psych was fine for me. I thought of it much like mythology, which was very interesting for me. Don't ask me why it came easy for me (I always fell asleep in lecture...too late in the day) but get the jist of it and try not to stress over it. Relax and you will be amazed at the amount of information you retain. I think the kicker for me was I thought some of the diagnoses were so off the wall that it made it stick in my mind.

    Happy studying!!!

    Thank-you RNonsense for your positive response! Actually, I did okay. I got an 82 on the test. I'm just whining, but it feels soooo good!

    I have diseases of the liver and gallbladder to thank for my 82%. If it was all psych I would have failed.

    You did score well for something you despise. Unless your school is very different from mine you'll be visiting alot with Eriksen so don't forget him. I love psych. But Abnormal bout drove me crazzy. it was not until we did the psych rotation in nursing school that I really began to like it, where we could finally put it into practice and see/feel the differentiating DX's. Eriksen was good for me because it let me define what it was I had been experiencing as an adult and hadn't resolved when i was a child and a ward of the state.

    As for Mr.Freud, I once tag-lined a paper with the prose " I wonder if Id is short for idiot?"

    ~~Be well~~
