    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.

    God bless you on your calling.i have worked in a hospital for 29 yrs and have worked for many doctors.and I have seen doctors treat staff and fellow doctors in a bad ways.some think they are a god and it is like a club.and instead of all working together and teaching as they grow they shame them like they should know it all.they forget it is called the PRACTICE OF MEDICINE. Med school school not be a boot camp.and not one person can know it all.and you are a pioneer in this new field.And please do not give up and yes they need to have changes and be exposed and hurt their pride personality and shame them. Keep up your efforts to I wish I could help you.but
