CASE STUDY ONE When Ernest Eaton’s desperate wife finally got him to agree to a comprehensive inpatient evaluation, he was 37, unemployed, and had been essentially nonfunctional for several years. After a week during which ha was partying all night and shopping all day, Mrs. Eaton said that she would leave him if he did not check into a psychiatric hospital. The admitting psychiatrist found him to be a fast-talking, jovial, seductive man with no evidence of delusions or hallucinations. Mr. Eaton’s troubles began 7 years before when he was working as an insurance adjuster and had a few months of mild, intermittent, depressive symptoms, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, and loss of appetite. At the time, he attributed these symptoms to stress at work, and within a few months was back to his usual self. A few years later an asymptomatic thyroid mass was noted during a routine physical exam. One month after the removal of the mass, a papillary cyst, Mr. Eaton noted dramatic mood changes.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
