Note from my teacher after turning in one of the assignments.
"Really thought provoking reflection- especially your macro level interventions. That macro “eye” isn’t something everyone has, especially in their foundation year, when individual practice is primary on our minds!”
The more and more I delve into my studies for this profession, the more I think the macro level will be my niche - government. We’ll see how it goes! A long road ahead of me awaits!
Last week was rough on me but today made me see that the work I do really does make a difference. A former patient called the office and requested to speak to my coworker and myself to tell us how well he is doing after being discharged. He thanked us for being there for him and it all hit me so fast… Hard work pays off and my passion for my work is stronger than the few bad days ( which occur because of the staff and not the patients, surprisingly huh ) !
Not even ten minutes into the movie and I was pulling myself together not to sob uncontrollably when they showed Rue’s family on that podium in District 11. Snow that was not okay, NOT OKAY AT ALL! Or that unexpected glimpse we got of Annie when they showed Finnick’s reaping and Mags’s…
You’d think the patients would be the ones to potentially bring emotional scars but surprisingly enough my first battle wound came from a staff member. This is insane. Just trying to process the work environment…I just..idek.

HOW YOU GON DO ME LIKE THAT!? *sobsincorner*
