Things Not Taught in Residency that Should've Been....
1) Dealing with patients with Borderline Personality: Where I did residency they didn't teach much about this other than just they needed DBT then taught pretty much close to nothing about DBT nor was anyone in the department skilled in utilizing DBT as a treatment. Add to the problem that a significant portion of patients coming into the ER had a cluster B personality and the staff members including the psychiatrist didn't know how to deal with them either and usually admitted them despite...

Unreal.
Just letting you know it's a bit of a venting post. So, I had an intake yesterday, the guy had classic symptoms of borderline personality disorder, drinks a liter of liquor daily. He demanded to be diagnosed with bipolar disorder and be started on meds for that. I got him admitted for inpatient detox. History gathering showed no major mood symptoms in absence of drinking. I got inpatient doc to call me, he did not bother to read my notes. Didn't bother to even treat the etoh use disorder... Unreal. (Source: Student Doctor Network)

How do you guys handle people asking for narcotics
How do you guys handle people coming in asking for narcotics or benzos? I'm still a resident in training and I've been trying to figure out how to avoid unpleasant experience with those manipulative drug seekers with borderline personality. I've once said No straight up to their face, which made the patient storm out of the room swearing at me. Another time, a patient came in for acute visit to I&D an abscess and wanted to discuss his/her chronic pain at the end of visit. This time I tried...

Is bipolar with multiple cycles in a day (ultradian cycling) actually bipolar?
I've read some lay accounts from people who claim to have a sort of ultra-ultra-ultra rapid cycling (ultradian) version of bipolar I, where they reportedly cycle multiple times in single day, but I've also heard that these types of "cycles" can be better explained by emotional regulation deficits, such as those seen in borderline personality disorder, and thus aren't indicative of true bipolar disorder. A quick pubmed search reveals relatively little literature on ultradian bipolar cycling,... Is bipolar with multiple cycles in a day (ultradian cycling) actually bipolar?
