So I have been taking abnormal psychology at school this term. It is a much more introductory class than I had hoped for. The instructor is good, but I get so bored as I have done to much reading and research due to difficult child and husband. During lecture I doodle, but I really do pay attention, and do comment and ask questions. I have an A in the class. Many times I doodle more when the topic comes close to what I deal with at home, as so many of the other students are so clueless. I have to doodle or make comments that would make it all too clear what I deal with at home. Especially what I know about medications(thanks much to those on this board). I am pretty sure the instructor knows that I know something for some type of personal reasons. We have had a couple of in class participation point assignments such as list a time when you were depressed and what did you learn from it? I put difficult child's diagnosis, and I learned that not everything is my fault. I did not know we were turning this in, and that ticked me off. I did not want to reveal too much and did. Big time. We had a test tonight. The short answer question was to list the 5 axis's. The 5th is always a Global assesment of function or gaf. I wrote a page on the gaf, why it was important, how it was compiled, and what scores would typically send someone to outpatient and inpatient treatment. When I turned it in, she turned to the last page. I think I kind of mystify her. She looked up at me and her eyes were popping out of her head. I laughed and walked out of class, and went outside and just completely lost it. I laughed so hard it was great. I am still trying not to laugh. I will remember the look on her face as long as I live. Pure shock. She told us we can get an extra 2.5pts, I just wanted those pts. lol. What is even more interesting, is that difficult child's therapist used to work with her at our local mental health dept. When I told her I was taking this class therapist asked me who was teaching it as she knows many of the instructors. She knew her.
