  1. Essie says:

    Suicide is saddening. We have this image of doctors as someone who can we rely on in times of sickness, someone who will listen to our complaints – someone who is strong. We neglect the fact that they are also humans, and that all the pressure in the field of medicine is just too much. Medical practitioners also need support; they also need help.
