When Aaron was an intern, or a first-year doctor in training, he knew something was wrong with him. He had trouble sleeping. He had difficulty feeling joy. He was prone to crying at inopportune times. Even worse, he had trouble connecting with patients. He felt like he couldn’t please anyone, and he found himself susceptible to feelings of despair and panic.
He wasn’t alone. That’s the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.
