    I read all seven Harry Potter books and watched all eight movies in one week in 2012.
    Coincidence! Also in 2012, as trade for my Star Wars marathon, I watched all Harry Potter movies for first time in one week with my wife.

    Sometimes a pt would present to subspecialty neuro clinic with these for months. Previous Drs. were unable to diagnose. The clinic Dr. went through standard history and physical with pt, all negative, then asked about abuse hx. Dr. was not surprised to hear hx of sexual abuse at young age. Pt had counseling for it at some point and thought it was resolved. Dr. said this presentation is not uncommon and referred to specialized psych.
    I'm good with that - psychogenic seizure...I think the more appropriate term to use, otherwise, instead of pseudo seizure would be idiopathic seizure. It's a seizure from an unknown origin. Not a fake seizure, or false seizure, etc.

    Don't stress- just give pseudo nursing care.

    When this student was having these seizures, the principal kept asking me, "do you think she's faking, do you think she's faking?" I politely told her "it's not my job to figure out if she is faking or not, my job is to make sure she is safe. If she is presenting with seizure like symptoms, then I will follow seizure protocol."

    And not to cause issues between the fandoms, but

    May the fourth be with you!
    To cause issues with 4 different fandoms (Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings):

    WILTW:

    AN is an internet forum, which draws out the worst in anonymous behavior; it is a large bridge and houses many trolls. For all its flaws, it is still a pretty neat place to explore. I came back because I've been so discouraged about nursing, but I'm finding new energy reading from the compassionate, supportive experienced nurses and the whip-smart shiny new nurses (to be). It's good to be here.
    You are no longer allowed to leave. It's in the TOS.

    Fetchalishous in my pink with my new pink fitbit! The counselor that wants to be a nurse has now figured out the Fetchness of wearing pink on Wednesday and is sporting his pink today!

  • May 4

    I just walked in the break room and one of the teachers jokingly said "Hey Pink Panther." I proudly said "Pink is unofficially officially the color for school nurses on Wednesday"...have to represent!

    Big Pharma makes money from people taking drugs for psychiatric disorders. Big Pharma puts pressure on [whoever makes new psychiatric disorders] to make a new disorder so they can come up with a new drug to treat that disorder.

    Just like that "new" opioid constipation "article" that is floating around here...

    </tinfoil hat>
    So here I was, minding my own business, waiting for my appointment at my PCP for my annual well visit ... when BAM! An evil henchman from Big Pharma pops up from the dark corner of the waiting room and throws Seroquel and Latuda samples at my feet! Poof! He disappears, just as the nurse calls my name. As she spies the samples, her eyes narrow, then knowingly she takes my paperwork from my hands and checks off "bipolar disorder."

    And that's my story.

    My best friend is 4'11". I got her a shirt that says "I'm not short. I'm fun-size." She loves it.
    I am also 4'11", and I tell people that I am not short, I am space efficient!
