    I have a patient with an Axis 1 diagnosis of BADI MRE depresses with SI.. The Axis II diagnosis is mild MR, borderline PD. I understand the Axis II diagnosis but I'm clueless on the Axis 1.

    Another reason why abbreviations are so troublesome and should be avoided as much as possible.

    It also doesn't help that abbreviations used often vary among facilities :/
