When I put my lab coat on in the mornings, it always feel akin to strapping on a suit of armor.
Not to defend against my patients, of course.
Disease, I guess. And an occasional sense of futility when patients are non-compliant with their treatment plans, or continue to smoke, etc.
Another day ahead. Hope it brings good things...
I love you all...

13. Sorry, I slept through your very trying afternoon.
Perhaps this will give you a warm and cuddly feeling to carry you through the rest of your afternoon.

8. I wondered about that...
You must see all kinds of ailments that are contagious. How do doctors avoid catching everything they treat?
I know from working in an elementary school.... I'm always using the disinfectant and sanitizer! If a kid sneezes, I call the custodian to disinfect the area! LOL I'm kind of germ-aphobic though. I don't get sick very often though! Must have built up a "resistance" over the years.
