“You have such a smiley face! Cheers me right up”, said one of my patients. I learnt a lot about the depth of my compassion this weekend. Long hours spent caring for patients, some of whom far less poorly than my John at home.
I may be a trained professional but I am also human; an exhausted & a-lot-on-her-plate human who is trying her best. I was worried though that all of this might impact on how I deal with situations that can strain anyone’s kindness. So hearing I have a smiley face meant a lot!
Oh PS- For all my friends starting F1 induction tomorrow- good luck!!! It will be an incredible year: your 1st as a Doctor ❤️ (Photo creds: Pixabay)
