Patient Name: Kelly Wiseling
Year of Birth: 1973
Occupation: Programmer, SII
Original Complaint (physical): None. Kelly is hearing impaired.
Original Complaint (psychological): Too easily upset.
Brief Summary: Ms. Kelly Wiseling is a deaf woman with a sharp tongue and a quick temper. Her childhood was dominated by a mother who desperately wanted a hearing "normal" daughter. Kelly was forced to function in both the hearing and deaf worlds, and now she feels alienated from both of them. Although she has a strong interest in sex--and worries needlessly that she may be a nymphomaniac--her past is marred by romantic disappointments. Total number of sessions: 11.
Brief Impression: Kelly is sensitive about her deafness, easily angered, and emotionally labile. She'd like more control over her emotions so as to appear immune to perceived insults and snubs.
Tentative Diagnosis: None yet.
Current Medications: None.
