Taking the Pulse on Today's Energies!
Dr. Jeanette welcomes Dr. Michael Myers, MD to discuss the global health event and how healthcare workers and physicians are struggling to keep it together.
"One thing I keep thinking about physicians: they signed up to save, to fix, to help and bring living back to those who are sick and in pain. Most, did not sign up for the battle field, they did not sign up for a soul crisis, they did not sign up to not be able to help. The crisis of PTSD is going to be: they are not God, they are not saviors, they cannot fix everyone and the profession must change." Over the decades in healthcare, we visited the hospital to be healed and returned back to life, we trusted the technology and services would put us back together and we handed over our lives to others to fix. ~ Dr. Jeanette
What is happening now in healthcare is devasting patients, providers, workers and the system of healthcare. How will we rise? It is too early for that discussion but we know there is a long road ahead and the casualties have not stopped mounting. Will the unheard screams be given a voice, will the untouched pain find a way out of the body and will the damage be felt by every soul of our existence or swept under the rug?
Dr. Myers is helping physicians keep themselves together in his local area. Read New York Times article here.
