For this Assignment, I will use “Training title 2” from Symptom Media. According to the Case History Reports document, the patient’s name is Tina, a 28-year-old female who presents with depressive symptoms.
Tina said she felt hopeless, sad and depressed all of the time. She had no desire to leave her bed. As a result, she lost her appetite. She thinks she’s a burden, feels inadequate and guilty. She has reported that she is constantly tired and cannot sleep, leading to a decrease in socialization and an increase in isolation. These symptoms, which have been ongoing for two weeks or more, have affected her ability to take care of herself, as well as negatively affecting relationships with others.
Objective: Tina’s affect was flat and depressed during the psychosocial assessment. She was unable to maintain eye contact. Her speech was slow and her concentration low. Her physical examination revealed no anomalies.
According to the DSM-5 criteria for Tina, she could have three different diagnoses: major depression disorder (MDD), chronic depressive disorders (PDD), or adjustment disorder with depressed feelings.
Major Depressive Disorder (MDD): Tina’s symptoms meet the criteria for MDD, including a depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, significant weight loss, insomnia, psychomotor agitation or retardation, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness, and diminished ability to think or concentrate. This diagnosis is the most likely based on Tina’s symptomatology.
