So now it's 4:30am, and I'm just finishing up my Multi-Grain Cheerios. Eating so early really sucks. I'm still full from dinner last night, but I know I'll be starved by lunch if I don't eat now. And let's be serious--I'll be starved anyway.
Today's my first clinical day on my psychiatric rotation. I have to drive into downtown Atlanta for this one, hence the early rising. Meeting my carpool at 5am, but at least the commute-in traffic won't be too bad.
I'll admit, I'm apprehensive about this. There's such a stigma on psych patients in our society, and it's hard to break away from your thoughts/beliefs without really knowing what it is that you think/believe. They really stress in school that to be a good nurse, especially psych nurse, you have to be 100% aware of your beliefs and schemas. Still working on that, I suppose.
So, try not to judge, right? I'll be trying not to, too.
