I write so often about my physicians. I have expressed confidence in their work, been critical of office operations, praised one, and when it was warranted I railed against indifference. As we all know, there are two sides to a story, but I am not a physician so I can’t speak to that other side.

I read this post from Greg Smith’s blog today. And I’ll bet that I can safely say that it shines a light on what most doctors must experience when they work with patients who are severely challenged.  It made me feel really good and I think you may well feel the same way.

    Oh, my, as a homecare physical therapist, I can so relate to this. Especially now that I’ve been a patient a time or two. It’s one of the reasons why I objected early on to having the words ‘hero,’ ‘courage,’ ‘warrior’ and others of that ilk applied to me when I was diagnosed with cancer. I see people every day at work who deal with life-altering and lifelong and life-threatening health issues, some of them cancer, most of them not. I’m just grateful I have been able to get back to work and help some of them, even when I’m not in the best of shape myself. Nothing like a little perspective. Thanks, Greg, and thanks, Scorchy.
