Love the old medical stories.
Bedside manner, so hard to teach, but without it all the skill in the world, may go unnoticed.
As a smoker myself, when I was talking to the relatives of patients on the ICU, I often used to offer cigarettes around. It seemed to give an easy way into a conversation, that was often going to be very difficult.
Have got my light box on for the first time today, hope to stave off the winter blues, especially as I am now not going to be able to travel for my dose of winter sun.
