By the Numbers

True Story:

Patient walks in this afternoon with a form to fill out so he can qualify for Medicaid. I have to certify that he is unable to work.

Me: Why can’t you work?

He: Oh, there are a million reasons I can’t work. For starters, I’m bipolar.

Me: Ok, that’s two.

(He also has chronic back pain, diabetes with neuropathy and all kinds of other things that make him think he can’t work. It remains to be seen what I do with the form.)
