Court Reporting Student Admitted to Hospital for Shock After Family Members Stop Asking When She'll be Done with School…

Ingrid Smith, a high-speed student at the famed College of Court Reporting in Hobart, Indiana, was admitted to St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart when she nearly died of shock in her family home the other day.

Ingrid was walking into her kitchen to make herself a snack. Knowing that her mother was preparing the family dinner at the same time, Ingrid was fully expecting her to ask how much longer she had until she finished school. When Ingrid's mother failed to inquire, Ingrid became lightheaded and had to immediately sit down.

Ingrid’s mother noted that her breathing was extremely erratic and she was deathly pale, so she immediately called for Ingrid's father to take her to the hospital. As Ingrid's father picked her up and placed her into the back seat of the family car, Ingrid's condition worsened when her father failed to ask her anything about court reporting school for the entire duration of the trip to St. Mary Medical Center.

Upon arrival at the hospital, the admission staff asked Ingrid a series of questions regarding her background. When none of those questions included "What's your occupation?" Ingrid became increasingly woozy, and her father demanded that she be admitted immediately.

Dr. John Sap, the internist on call, was called back early from his coffee break to examine Ingrid. Dr. Sap was able to see that, upon entering the hospital room, Ingrid was under extreme duress. He approached her very carefully and gently sat down beside her. “Hi Ingrid,” he said. “I’m going to ask you some questions to see if we can figure out what’s causing your symptoms. First, what do you do for a living?" "I'm a court reporting student," Ingrid replied. "You mean those people that type everything in court? You have to go to school for that?" the doctor said. "Yes." replied Ingrid. “I've been in school for many years," she said. "How much longer do you have?" the doctor inquired.

As soon as the doctor asked that question, a medical mystery occurred right there at St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart, Indiana. The color immediately came back to Ingrid's face, her breathing normalized, she no longer was woozy, and she felt a surprising sense of relief. "It’s been several hours since somebody asked me that question. I feel SO much better now!" Ingrid remarked. Ingrid was discharged from St. Mary's five minutes later. Dr. Sap believes that Ingrid suffered from extreme shock. After having spent the last few years being

asked constantly by her family when she'd be done with school, her body reacted violently when her family failed to inquire during that one hour  

Dr. Sap instructed Ingrid's family to continue asking her about school on an hourly basis. He also encouraged her family and friends to inquire about her amount of student loan debt and when she will hit her loan limits as well. He believed that this constant inquiry would keep Ingrid from experiencing another scary episode of shock.

From the desk of someone at College of Court Reporting. Happy April Fools’ Day! Have fun! Grit, dedication, determination -- not too much longer!
