I was admitting this patient into the ER. He was a paranoid schizophrenic who had been off of his medications for a while and was experiencing an agitated episode. He was extremely polite and answered my direct questions coherently. I was quite impressed. He continued telling me about his theories regarding life, the government, and a stream of thoughts about whatever he was thinking about.
The longer I sat there speaking with him and listening, the more he made sense. He made some remarks that I secretly fully agreed with him. He was very articulate and intelligent. Hmmm...it really made me wonder.
Has anyone else experienced something like this?
