The Humbling Moment I Realized That I Am Not Perfect

Surgery

The moment I realized I was not perfect occurred when I was lying on a gurney in the pre-op area at the University of Washington in Seattle. A surgical intern was digging around in my arm to find intravenous access while my parents sat off to the side praying. In that moment, I transformed from a doctor to a fearful patient being prepped for an urgent surgery for a rare medical disorder called achalasia.

By: Starla Fitch

Did you know that bad moods are contagious? It’s true.

Nothing deflates your good mood like a friend, spouse or co-worker who is wearing their “grumpy pants” for the day.
