I Hate The Mental Health Field
I hate my job because of the people I have to deal with day in and day out. I am part of the clerical work force in the mental health system. Everybody else there is there because they want to be. They went to school for mental health nursing, or psychology, or whatever. I just needed a M-F job with my benefits. Well, it turns out that I hate it!! I wouldn't hate it if it wasn't for some of the people I have to deal with.
I have all sorts of compassion and well wishes for the person who is truly ill, the person suffering from schizophrenia, or major depression etc. But the drug induced, meth junkie, gang banger mentally ill thug I cannot stand.
And it seems that we have to cater to these people, and pay for their medication, and write clinical letters for them to take to the judge to excuse them when their thug-despicable-parasite-of-society ***** get in trouble.
I cannot, cannot, cannot, cannot stand them!!! I have been trying to get a different job for the longest time and it seems that I am stuck! Ahhhhhhh I want to scream!!!!
