We all need some positivity!
Staying positive at work
Being a vet has showed challenges to the positive part of my mind. It comes from the natural unpredictability of medicine. You can never know whats coming through those doors. A dog bleeding out from a road traffic accident, a cat with a failing heart or confrontational people.
We were not taught about wellness at Uni. We were told incidence rates of suicide and mental breakdown at the age of 18; then examined on the statistics! Personally I don’t think any group of people should be prophesied such a bitter relationship with life.
My aims as a clinician is to love life, keep learning, and offer the best care for my patients.
