Not Funny

I feel as if I've neglected to be even somewhat entertaining lately. I blame psych. There's nothing funny or even amusing about psych - it's sad, draining, deeply personal and bathroom humour doesn't enter into the mix. I'm left with nothing.

So I'm afraid for the next 6 weeks you'll have to bear with me as I try to make the most of this rotation. Maybe things will pick up or (at the very least) I'll stop being so serious but otherwise it's tardive dyskenisia, the isolation room, eloping in the milieu and a brooding, boring unlikely RN.

How about a post about the current uses of electro-shock therapy. That's funny. No wait, I mean interesting.

No, it's NOT funny. If you've ever had someone you love get shock therapy, you would never quite get over it.

This is one of those "hang in there" sort of times. You are not our dancing monkey! Even so, do your best to find the comedy outside the ward -- though I guess I shouldn't suggest that movie Crazy People as it's sort of unfortunately topical.

Oh, I know! Picture Dorsinville critiquing your blog for the presence of Objective Correlative and Fractured Representation. Erm, that might just make you cry instead.

Oh, and also, in undergrad I had like seven courses, all about psychiatric therapy, pathology, physiological correlates and ever'thang.

And I never went to a Psych ward to put it in perspective.

Wtf was I doing? Wtf did it all mean? I can tell you all about the pharmacological functioning of Haldol and other antipsychotics, but I can honestly say that I haven't ever spent an hour in a ward with Schizophrenic patients.

Psych is not for everyone, you either love it or you hate it. I find it fascinating, myself.
