Sally also had a generalized psychological vulnerability that was instilled by her father’s Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Her specific psychological vulnerability came from her fathers constant dieting and worry over body shape and size. While her family life was focused around diet and exercise, Sally did not fit the desired look of the family. At age 15 due to the stress of family and friends teasing her, Sally counted calories and lost weight. While this made her feel good she started noticing red marks on her skin and this is when the picking of perceived imperfections began.

The lab tests are conclusive in confirming that Karen has mononucleosis as they showed that her white blood count is increased while her red blood count is normal, this is a sign of infection.

Through a crazy set of events House ties his neighbour down in a chair and forces him to stick both arms in a mirrored box and tells him to clench his still intact hand as tightly as he could and then release. As he releases his hand the stump where his other one used to be was also perceived as the relaxation of a tight grasp seized to hurt
Melinda is going through a lot, but despite that she does not speak. Melinda is more scarred on the inside, but also on the outside. By her thoughts throughout the novel, you can realize that she is in a lot of pain and some of that pain can be accessed on her physically.

In the case presented about a 9-yearold postoperative patient, Carla, the overt discussion surrounds the correct use of pain control by the provider, education of her family, and the rights of patient, family and physician in decision making (Post & Bluestein, 2007, pp. 113-115). Core ethical principles are also questioned in the space between the overt discussions. The moral considerations include the “moral imperative to relieve pain” (Post & Bluestein, 2007, p. 113), the consideration of a child’s autonomy and decision making ability, the autonomy and consent of the family, the autonomy and social contract of the physician and the beneficence of providing to the imperative to relieve Carla’s pain.
