Empathetic Doctor




I've looked at life from both sides now
Joni Mitchell

Front and back, eh Joni?  Thanks to a patient who showed me this laugh in one my waiting room magazines, I  have a chance to share some of my feelings of being exposed as both patient and doctor. It's been a tough week which I will share in a later post, so the humor helps.  By the way, if you notice a predominance of 60's Canadian singer songwriters in my quotes, what can I say.  It's ma roots.

Brian,
The cartoon and Joni Mitchell say it!!! 60"s music is ma roots too!
I am a patient and fellow member of the "club" that none of us want to belong to (cancer patients). I have survived 11 years after six years in remission following CHOP and an autologous stem cell transplant four years ago. It is an adventure and I certainly saw both sides.

The bad days help make the good days even better!!

My thoughts and prayers are with you!
