I often leap onto my soapbox and forget to mention all the great things about my life and job. I must thank Joel Rose who did the NPR article for Day 2 Day, and did a fantastic job focusing on the positive aspects of my practice. I am so grateful for his spectacular interviewing and editing skills, I can't get over what a great job he did on the article.
And also, thanks to the many people who have sent encouraging replies or emails to the blog or the NPR piece. It always renews my spirit to hear other docs talk about the real priorities in family medicine, and to hear patients that appreciate docs who really do care, and are supportive.
And also thanks to my sister Kath, for sending the letter to npr in the first place.
And of course to Al, because I'd be nowhere without him.
And, I wouldn't want to leave out my friends and family, the support and stress relief are beyond measure.
Happy New Year.
