Food for thought in this New Year!
"You spend 20 years being superhuman, an all-achieving machine, and then... Bam!... suddenly you cant do it anymore." - a doctor-patient
Burnout can strike at anytime in our lives... the very nature of it, means that we don't always see it coming.
In thinking that we are superhuman, we can easily forget, that we need to consistently look after ourselves, in order to remain well, and to maintain our capacity to live, and fully enjoy, our lives.
Doctors are human. Doctors need to take care of themselves, just as they take care of others.
