Today we had been exposed to adolescent patients. And the HEADSSS way of interview is the primary focus. It is difficult to take history in this kind of patients for the first time. They even ask us if such information are really necessary to be revealed. Thanks to my partner Jhing. She is really a good historian that sometimes, out of my disordered way of communicating with people, I just add on some questions so as not to disrupt her way of taking history. When I forgot that our small-for-his-age GIN patient has to be examined with privacy, she reminded me that the patient is in his early adolescence.
Today I was also disappointed of myself for being incomplete in PE, and not checking Traube’s space when it is necessary. But at the least, I was relieved for some moments because I accept my flaw. I did not bother to make a false finding.
Today is the last day of OBGyne. Test of values, because during the exams, the first page of my test paper had answers. My initial decision upon noticing it was to look at my classmates to see if they have the same reaction as mine. I was not able to see any in their faces. And so I opted to answer it by copying the same answers, although I know the answers of some questions. Yes. I made a bad decision out of previous situations when we face the same thing in class. We just leave it as is and copy the answers upon the instructions of the proctor. I even noticed that I am the only one without a number 8 item which I reported to the proctor. Nevertheless, my lost mind never bothered, or forgot to report the case of the first page.
Before the feedback, I was surprised that I was the only one with that kind of test paper. I began to think. Fortunately, a friend told me of the right way in that test of values, which I initially dread to act on because of possible reproach from Dr. Antonio. Thank God everything went well.
31 + 29 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 = 366
31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 = 365
31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 = 243
366 + 365 + 243 = 974
974/365.25 = 2.67
