This rotation was my second placement in mental health, the difference being that this time, I’d actually covered the theory before the placement. I liked it, a lot. I liked the shades of grey, the uncertainty, and the challenges.
That I may consider a career in psychiatry seems to provoke one of two reactions in people: genuine enthusiasm, or hysterical laughter. The former mostly from people I know through medicine, the latter from people I’ve known for much longer.
There’s probably no right answer.
