    The other two reasons were that I was too young to be able to have the presence to be able to fix the "one flew over the cuckoo's nest" culture of how mental illness was treated, and saddened by the realisation that noone was ever cured, just managed with medication so long as they took it, and most of those with psychoses were progressively worse with each admission.

    Yea I can emapthise with all of the above, but then western medicine doens't cure physical health either, it's all about management of symptoms. Easter medicine is about promotion of wellness, again no cures there. Antibiotics are one of the fure cures to have been invented as they treat infeaction.

    I left because I was nackered, I was working from 7am till 11 pm 6 days a week in a care in the community and had enough, but it took my 5 years there after (I nursed during Uni) to really leave.

    Mental health is tricky because there are such a range of issues but the treatments are possitively antiquated and rather scary.

    You seemed to have been trained in good faith and then walked into the wall of ethical dilema medicine is plagued with. Good for you to be trained though.

    I really do apperciate that the real sick ones are genuinelly sick (even folks with full blown personality issues like BPD rather than just stone heads who camp it up a bit). The one thing that used to scare me though was the properly sick ones when they would go off on an agressive phase - you had no power to rationalise or reason with them, because they could imagine you into a monster or all sorts, so you couldn't deal with agressive beahviours in the same way as my primary discipline.

    You are very brave and smart to stay on top of this and I tip my hat to you.

    Maintaining enough insight to recognise and undertake the necessary steps to prevent readmission can be a very difficult thing to do and needs a lot of strength of character and self-discipline
