HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS: The patient is a 29-year-old female who is here today with the above-noted complaints.

She has been squeezing them and some of them are very bruised and irritated. She also states that she is having significant pelvic pain and would like to go back and see Dr. XYZ again. She also states that she took herself off of lithium, but she has been having significant mood swings, anger outbursts and not dealing with the situation well at all. She also has had some psychiatric evaluation, but she states that she did not feel like herself on the medication, so she took herself off.
