Question Description

Case Study 3 (250+ words, APA format)

Debby, a 63 year old female, presents to her primary care doctor, Dr. Lakewood, for her annual check up. She mentions at the beginning of the appointment that she hasn't been sleeping well and asks a prescription of sleeping medication. After doing a routine physical exam, Dr. Lakewood asks some background information about her sleeping problems. Debby states that it started about one month ago and was probably due to the change in temperature with the start of summer, as it gives her increased hot flashes. Dr. Lakewood presses Debby, asking if any other notable events happened about one month ago. After thinking for a minute, Debby states that her best friend Suzanne was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer the same week the sleeping problems started, but it can't be the reason because Suzanne is doing very well with her initial treatment. Debby also remembers that her husband came home from work stating his retirement account had taken a hit in the stock market, but they had worked through a plan with their accountant to build the account back up. When pressed further, Debby mentions that she has her annual mammogram coming up next week but she is sure it will be normal.
