In the caring professions, where we connect at such a deep level so quickly, where human life is in our hands there are often many more questions than answers. From teachers, doctors, nurses, care-givers, we expect miracles or at least results. The burden that can be crushing. The need to talk, not to merely carry on in silence is critical to success and to well-being. There is a great deal of truth in your story.
