How do you deal with losing a patient?


Do you ever get over losing a patient? Cause I’m worried that when I lose a patient it will change me not only as a person but as a physician. -anon

Before I can answer your question, we need to talk about definitions of loss.

Understand this: everyone dies. If you are…

Kingdom mentality

Too many people these days dub themselves kings and queens. They don’t even understand the meaning of the titles. People throw these terms around as a crutch. They use these titles to make themselves seem elevated above their peers, significant others, colleagues, etc. and make it seem okay to be a bitch and treat people like shit. This definition is definitely not that of a true king/queen leader; it assimilates more of a dictator’s mentality, no?

On to the actual definition of a king or queen. A king/queen is a leader, a ruler, a diplomat, a level headed individual ready to stand for his/her beliefs and rights in order to run a kingdom well. Therefore… Titling yourself a queen does not mean you get to enslave your friends… Rather, it means you can handle yourself as the creator and ruler of your own kingdom. Instead of using these terms so flippantly, think about the context and what you’re actually using the title for. Are you a queen base on foolish entitlement or are you a capable individual with ready to lead a your own kingdom successfully?

I let it go. It’s like swimming against the current. It exhausts you. After a while, whoever you are, you just have to let go, and the river brings you home.
