CHIEF COMPLAINT: Delusions, auditory (and sometimes visual) hallucinations, catatonic behavior (stupor catatonia), and occasional, but powerful, violent outbursts.
HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS: Was diagnosed as schizophrenic at the age of sixteen, roughly six months after a car accident in which she believes she died. Viola believes that she is now living in hell.
PAST MEDICAL HISTORY: Treated at the local hospital for a cracked rib and a broken leg after a car accident at the age of fifteen. This is the accident in which she believes she died. With the exception of the accident and her mental state, Viola is the picture of health.
SOCIAL HISTORY: Born to Pema Sopa, a Tibetan woman, and Mark Farrell, an american, Viola was a happy, bright child who loved the color and richness of her mother's culture. Stories of Nepal fascinated little Viola and she was determined to someday see it. But the rare and prolonged occurrences of odd behavior peppered Viola's childhood. A few times before starting school, Viola was taken home from a family gathering or function because of her lack of mobility, later to be identified as catatonic behavior. As she got older, Viola was a dedicated student driven to do wonderful things, but she catatonia was becoming more frequent.
At the age of fifteen, while riding to school with friends her freshman year, Viola was in a car accident, in which she was not driving, and was thrown from the vehicle, breaking her right leg and cracking a rib. Since the car accident, in which two of her friends were seriously injured and another was killed, Viola has been convinced that she was dead. She died that day in the car accident and this was her hell, to be a prisoner in her own life. This delusion, paired with her catatonic bouts and violent outbursts, was what convinced the doctors that she was indeed schizophrenic.
Although medication seems to take affect, it rarely lasts because Viola tires of feeling "out of touch", making a shift from medication to medication almost impossible. Rare though they may be, the violent out bursts are dangerous, not only to Vi herself but to those around her, often without her seeming to remember what set her off in the first place. Viola occasionally sees and almost always can hear the girlfriend that passed away in the car accident.
