back at work

i have a suspicion that i am having anxieties about seeing patients again after taking about a month off from hospital visits.  what am i afraid of?  my patients are really sick.  they are more sick than i could have imagined.  recently i have worked with patients who are recovering and weren’t terminally ill.  now all my patients are in some phase of terminal illness diagnosis.  i’m coming in to closer contact with pain and suffering than i feel comfortable.

  1. Agreed. You’re making a difference and making their pain a little more bearable. They’re better off having you around than not. Keep up the good work in the hospital and on the blog

  2. You’ll be alright, help one patient at a time and just remember that you’re making a difference in their life and giving them hope. You’d be surprised how peope recover from the worst when they have hope in their hearts 🙂
