DOCTOR COMMENTS FROM HOSPITALIZATIONS

"Appears to be on the edge of a psychotic break."

"Patient feels devil is after him."

"Incoherent...paranoid...grandiose..."

“I think what is outstanding here is that the patient is mentally ill, in fact psychotic and most likely has been for years.”

“It is obvious that he is delusional, that he shows incoherence of thinking”

“Feels he is controlled by an unseen power”
