I work on an inpatient psychiatric unit. We all know where that falls in the hierarchy of specialties.
We have a patient who was diagnosed with cancer while on our unit. My favorite comment of the day came from the well respected oncologist seeing him: "People always ask me how I can do what I do, but I have no idea how you all can do what you do!" His new found respect made my day and from the smile on his face, the psychiatrist's too.
There are so many different types of illnesses, patients, settings and situations. It's a good thing every specialty has people who were made just for each individual's suffering. Hope all of those searching for where they belong will soon find their place.
