Food for thought- “The people of today’s youth-oriented, cure-expecting, death-denying society have unusually high expectations of the healers of our time. We expect a cure (or if not a cure, then the prolongation of life) as the normal outcome of illness. The technology of modern health care dominates our expectations of treatment, and our primary focus is on the curative aspects of medicine, not on prevention.” Rachel E. Spector
Why yes, I would love to go and work indoors all afternoon and evening on this glorious September day.
Last night one of my patients told me that she and her husband had smoked for 40 years a pack a day and then one day when cigarettes went up to $1 they quit because it was too expensive and they bought a camper instead.
There was a time during my freshman year of college where I had my classes in the morning and would work maybe 4 hours in the evening during the weekdays and I would come home from my classes and make chai tea and play Zelda Ocarina of Time. Every time I have that tea now it brings me back. I had no idea how good I had it.
