Can anyone explain to me the phrase "She behaves like a redhead on steroids." A doc on the unit said that about a postpartum mom and I must be too wet behind the ears to know what that means. Thanks in advance.
That doctor should be reprimanded for referring to anyone like this if he meant it in a derogatory manner.
Historically people with red hair are "supposed" to be hot, fiery, quick to anger and unpredictable or devil like because they are "hot".
Steroid usage also makes behavior unpredictable and there is a phenomenon called steroid psychosis that can occur that make people have unbelievable strength, have unpredictable behavior and fly into rages with hallucinations and fits of rage.
Combine the two you have an unpredictable, unreasonable female that is quick to temper and possessing unusual strength.
