LS is a 25-year-old Caucasian male who works as a lawyer at a top law firm in his state. He came to the clinic accompanied by his romantic partner. They are both worried about his condition since it has been affecting his social life and has caused a change in his professional environment.
CHIEF COMPLAINT: “I feel confused about how to act.”
HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS
The patient’s overall life has been affected due to a limited ability to attain emotional stability. When he became aware of the initial diagnosis, he started getting affected by physical symptoms like pain, shortness of breath, or body weakness. All these indicate that the patient was impacted by a response to psychological distress, mainly discovered when a person is experiencing these symptoms. As LS progressed with his life and taking medication, he was asked to take some medical tests, but they did not always show a medical basis. The previous doctor diagnosed him with a personality disorder because psychological distress and physical symptoms were the main symptoms he displayed.
LS has had a rough time adjusting his life so that other people would be accommodative to his personality. He often changes moods quickly and can appear to be an impatient person, yet the issue is known to persons close to him. Career advancement has been a common outcome of LS’s life since he does not allow his personality issues to affect his sustenance.
PAST PSYCHIATRIC HISTORY
The patient got diagnosed with a personality disorder when he was 15 years old. It was imperative for him to receive the diagnosis since he had been frequently affected by emotional distress and unmanageable behavior when he joined high school.
The patient had been prescribed Serotonin reuptake inhibitors which is a type of antidepressant used in patients with personality disorders who get affected by severe physical and psychological symptoms. The medication is an anxiolytic agent who got prescribed to the patient by his physician. LS explained that he researched the medication he prescribed and discovered that patients could become dependent on them. Thus, he managed his medical history by communicating with his nurses since he started taking the medication 3 months ago.
