Psychiatry is just different. Especially right after doing Gen’s a whole 180o turn the other direction. As it was kind of my first exposure to psyc illnesses, was very blur at start. I do know a bit more now but there still heaps moreto go. I realised a disease is diagnosed based mainly on the signs or symptoms which can be masked or hidden by the patient. Diagnosis and management is hugely based on the feedback from the patient or family. It’s a very interesting field but with lots of grey area. Slow paced though with nice working hours. Will write more about it when I end the run in 2 weeks. Need to finish up the log book and do my CAT.
