Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with additional services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
How long ago was her fall?
How far did she fall/tell me about the mechanics.....
Do she have any other medical problems or take any other medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Thank you for that additional information.
From what you have posted I would not rush to say that what this person is trying to consciously fake increased severity. Her possible legal actions really do not shed any light on this in either direction.
Does this make sense to you?
That sounds good to me.....but proving that they are faking it means first ruling out every physiological/pathological cause -- which can be very difficult to do, as I am sure you know.
You may also want to consult with your psychiatric colleagues on this patient.
Don't forget to mash the positive (excellent is the most fun to push) feedback button.....without this important step on your part the funds you left on deposit are not released and my kids will spend another cold winter barefoot ;)
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
