Run-Down of Week 3

This week has been more of the same. We have been doing lots of patient interviews, and while they are still interesting, I would like to talk to somebody who is not experiencing psychosis.

Unfortunately, our public psychiatry is so poorly funded that we really only have the beds for the sickest and those in the most dire need. This means that we see the most extreme cases and people at their worst. 

I feel bad for them, know they will probably improve with treatment and enjoy the interviews, but I would like some time doing something a little different, variety being the spice of life and all. 
We have another 5 weeks in psychiatry, and I don't really mind, but it will be nice to do something else for a little while.
