Did you know that you can medically be an idiot? SERIOUSLY!

I work in healthcare and therefore I have a book of diagnosis codes. These codes are universal for the healthcare field for everyone to know what diagnosis a patient has.

As I was looking for another diagnosis in the "I" section I came across this and thought it was GREAT! :)

Idiot, Idiocy (cengential) 318.2

amaurotic (Bielschowsky)(-Jansky)(family)(infantile(late))(juvenile (late))(Vogt-Spielmeyer) 330.1

Microcephalic 742.1

Mongolian 758.0

Oxycephalic 756.0


So all-in-all today I learned that you can be diagnoses as an idiot and apparently in many different ways! :)

Now I think I should call my daughter's biological father's physician and ask him if the diagnosis is properly logged into his chart or not. ;)


**BTW: I am in NO WAY picking on ANYONE who actually may HAVE this diagnosis!**
