Just curious if any of you psych residents felt that you have or are developing a psych disorder yourself while in residency, or if you're worried that could happen during your practicing career? The reason I ask is because I'm interested in psych, though I feel that I have some depressive tendencies (usually due to family issues that get me down) for which I have never received any professional help. I'm a bit worried that the more I learn about psych, or I'm around psych patients, that my own mental health will suffer. Am I justified in thinking this, and is this anything you guys can relate to? If so, did it curtail your interests in psych? Of course I could be just stressed out studying for my MCAT and overwhelmed with considering career options too.
