GP burnout stories: 'My reaction to a suicidal patient was resentment'


Okay, nice stats. On the surface it even looks like about half the doctors are unlikely to take time off due to stress in the foreseeable future. What a load of cr#p. That survey did not reach the target population, ie those of us who were already too tired, stressed and burnt out to give a sh&t. At that point, we have already reached out to all the "help" initiatives, received b$gger all from them, gave up, and decided to think for ourselves. At that stage one gives these "surveys" the same consideration as one would give the derriere of a small rodent. And in case anyone is wondering, yours truly doesn't drink to excess, and does not turn to drugs. So there. Hah.
