If you want to work hard and have a genuine compassion to make others feel better then this is the right career for you! It takes a lot of patience but it can be rewarding. Seeing a patient walk or stand again after working hard with them makes it all worth it. If I would choose a career again, I would definitely still choose physical therapy. It can be tiring and it tests your patience as you deal with different kinds of people such as the patient, their family, and the other medical personnel, but it is worth it. People should know that they must have the passion to be a physical therapist to actually succeed and be happy. If you have the passion, everything will fall into place and it would not seem like work .
In the 18th and 19th century, hatmakers used poisionous chemicals including mercury in their work. As result, many developed pathological symptons -- an estimated 10% went insane. Hence the term "mad as a hatter" and Lewis Carroll's character, the Mad Hatter.
