I would recommend this career to people who are committed to their education and willing to put in many years of study. I am glad that I have my career and would make the same choices if I had to do it again. You get to help people in ways that others aren't able to, however, you are exposed to difficult and often sad issues on a regular basis. This career can be very rewarding as long as you are able to keep a clear boundary between work and personal life.
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.
