I had a young guy about 19 years old that was transferred in from a State Mental Facility where he was sent for 60 days to be evaluated. During his medical intake I asked him if he had any allergies. He responded "I'm allergic to flour and milk." I then asked him if he had any medical problems. He responded "I have cancer." I asked him what type of cancer. He replied "Digestive enzyme and I'm on radiation!" I asked him who was his Doctor and when he was diagnosed. He replied "I never went to a Doctor!" I asked him if he self diagnosed himself and he replied "Yes!" While I was taking his vital signs I noticed a piece of string on each wrist and I told him that I liked his bracelets. He replied "Thank you, they bind me!" I asked him what he meant by binding, he replied 'They keep evil away." To make a long story short, I ended up walking him down to Mental Health where we were greeted with "Oh, well look who's back!" Needless to say, he was my very 1st intake and I will never forget that experience...There is never a dull day in Corrections...and there is no other place I would rather be!
