Finding solace in A&E


Heartbreaking on so many levels. Is not General practice so awful that Kate cannot work in it, when she wants and needs to ? The Contract is not really a job with life/ work balance. Never really was, with 80 hour weekend call etc, but it id dire now. Kate is an example of how terrible it is. If you are slightly stressed or anxious, it cannot be done [ See Peverley]. Been there. Wife was 40, children 10 and 6. It takes years for the sorrow to subside. I went to counselling and it was really, really helpful to ease and cope with the utter anguish of it all.
