​In this line of work, I get to see or hear several unfortunate events. Over the years, I began to appreciate the good in people that previously I may have taken for granted. Some patients have shown me the true meaning of resilience even in the face of great adversities. At times, It is not easy to work with challenging patients. It really helps when I can talk to someone at the end of the day!
