We treat patients, not diseases.
All healthcare flows through the relationships between the healthcare provider and patient.
The spoken language is the most important tool in medicine.
—Eric Cassell, Talking with Patients, 1985. (via medicalstate)

These past two years has been a roller coaster ride full of different emotions, heartaches, fights, loss, and many things that made us reflect on ourselves and reconsider how we were living our lives. Beside the things that pushed us a few steps back, we were also presented with infinite laughs, smiles, good company, new friends, old friends, happy memories, inside jokes, love, friendship, and things that we’ll probably remember for the rest of our lives. I’ve done things that I never thought that I would do. I felt things that I didn’t expect to feel. I tried new things. I grew. I learned. I’m still learning. 2013 was fun. But the ending of this year… I couldn’t have asked for a better ending. People are making up for lost time. People are forgiving. I couldn’t ask for more. 2014 is looking pretty good right about now. I can’t wait to go through another year with the people in my life. I’m ready to embark on a new adventure this year and just live, love, and learn. To experience what others don’t even dream about. Let’s make it a good year, 2014.
