I’ll be switching this space into one that serves as my journal documenting my emotions, reflections, and experiences throughout residency. I’ve only been a resident for 6 weeks now, but have already seen and felt so much. I cannot fathom what three whole years will look like. But I’m excited to share those inner thoughts with myself in an effort to retain the lessons from beautiful, sad, frustrating, and uplifting moments. I’m also hoping to shed some of the heaviness that naturally comes with caring for kids and families through the most difficult times of their lives in this space. My deepest hope is that I’m able to retain the core of who I am as a person and health care provider by treating myself and others with kindness.
See you soon.
