I am halfway through my psychiatry residency and regularly load up your podcast on the way home from work. Not only do I take away great suggestions for interacting with my patients or thinking about their dilemmas, but I usually end up with a smile on my face.
Recently, I had a particularly challenging day in terms of managing tough patient cases. I was feeling a bit down and was looking forward to listening to your show. I was halfway home when I heard you speaking about being polite to others. Then you mimicked having a ferocious, sneezy cold, and I just about lost it. I couldn't stop laughing, and the people in the car next to me must have thought I was having some sort of breakdown. Thank you for your wisdom, insight and directness when helping people sort through their problems but thank you also for being hilarious!
Remember, all of you can send me "letters" too - by email! Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
