This form is for the client. It will help you to remember what symptoms you have when you can’t remember (that’s called psychic amnesia by the way). Many clients make a list of the things they want to talk about before each consult. This teaser list will help you with that process. Please don’t mail it to me or email it though. I don’t seem to have the time to review all that info before the consult and it distracts me from my normal way of taking a history. Thanks. 

Instructions: Number the boxes that apply to you. Use (1) for MILD symptoms (occur once or twice a month), (2) for MODERATE symptoms (occur several times a month), and (3) for SEVERE symptoms (you are aware of almost constantly). We are focusing only on those issues that you have been experiencing in the last SIX months. If there are symptoms that you have experienced in the past, please mark that box with the letters (Hx) which means historically experienced. If you can remember the approximate year, go ahead and write that after the symptom.
