Is anyone in the mental health field?

I hope to be if I get this position as a psychiatric-mental health nurse.

My very first job was working for a psychiatrist.

I was like 14 and filed charts after school,

Kept that job until college,

A personal record.

A few years ago I started going to a community college as a pre-nursing student, with the intent of becoming a psych nurse. I did fine my first semester, had a 4.0, but thanks to depressive/negative symptoms, I essentially flunked out of pre-nursing a couple semesters later. It would have been a mistake; I’m not cut out for nursing.

I am a psychologist.
