It took me almost seven years to realise that I actually had a problem. I guess that you forget about your own problems when helping others with theirs. Being a psychiatrist Is hard work, but I find it hard to stay committed to my work and on task, you may not think this is a very big issue but when you are dealing with peoples lives and strong medication it can become very serious. I have only just realised that I actually need help that's why I am writing this, to reflect on my problem and try and see what I am doing wrong. I mean sure, I have helped people in the past but I have just become lazy with my work that's why I feel I cannot continue working; the patient deserves better. Over the past few years I have found that I hardly listen to my patient's problems, I feel very distracted.

Sometimes I have to have several cups of coffee just to get me to work each day and often I prescribe them medication that they don't even need. That's what happened to Mrs Stevenson, I am now risking a horrible lawsuit because she is now suffering from constant psychotic episodes from the drug that I prescribed to her.
