    Many years ago I was working nights and received a transfer from a medical floor. The man was in a very psychotic episode. He called me by my first name (I go by my middle name), knew how many children I had and where I went to grade school. I live in a small community about an hour from where I work. Occasionally I have a patient from there who knows me through my parents or husband, even though I don't know them. I assumed this was the case with this man.

    I came back a few days later and he had completely recovered. His psychosis had been related to a medical issue. When he saw me he immediately gave me a hug and said: "I didn't think you were real!" He told me he remembered that night and believed he had died, was in heaven and that I was an angel. He had no connection whatsoever to me and had no idea how he knew those things about me. Still gives me chills!

    My favorite was a note made by the psychiatrist after a patient had intentionally kicked me in the stomach. "Patient is well aware of right from wrong. In my opinion needs a therapeutic trip to jail."

    We are a good team and injuries are rare on our unit, but a few serious ones have occurred. I was assaulted and injured one time in the 26 years I've worked on my unit. I missed 5 months of work and still deal with some chronic pain from the incident. My advice is to remember our patients can be completely unpredictable and the unexpected can happen even when you do all the right things.
