Me: Well, I’ve given it a lot of thought, and I’m leaning towards a diagnosis of histrionic personality disorder and/or bipolar I with psychotic features, with a possible dual diagnosis of substance abuse that is exacerbated by post-partum depression and/or psychosis. I don’t have the exact DSM-IV codes as of yet, but I’d be happy to get them for you if it is necessary for charts and such.
The World: Dude. It’s Britney Spears. Is that fancy talk for “batshit crazy?”
Me: *sigh* Yes. Yes it is. You know, I spent a LOT of money to go to grad school and learn those fancy words, dammit.
The World: You need a hobby, girl.
Me: So…you’re saying you don’t need those codes?
