So I was at work and showing a new nurse how to search through the medical codes to select the diagnosis she needed when creating her careplan. As I was scrolling through, I came across "sexual masochism" and "sexual sadism". Now mind you, I already knew they existed on the DSM IV. But I guess seeing it just shocked me for some reason. My initial reaction? "What?!? Are you kidding me!?!".

The new nurse jumped back and asked if I was alright. I'm sure I was blushing as I replied, "Ummm, yeah. I'm fine. Sorry, guess I was just suprised to see masochism and sadism listed there".

Wonder if I just outed myself?
