The time between patients can be so short I barely have enough time to hit “send” on the prescriptions page. Other time, there’s a long lull, like there is right now. This is when I start wondering if I’m making a difference in people’s lives. I don’t think about that when I’m in the zone when treating patients, and I feel confident that I know what I’m talking about. But being here in the office lounge with just my thoughts makes me uncomfortable. I guess I have to be around people more than I thought.
