    Thank you so much Pam for this great presentation. In my department of now 22 OB/GYN physicians if one doctor was lost to suicide there would be untold damage. If 2 physicians did were lost I can’t imagine what would happen. 6 1/2 years ago we lost the groups practicing patriach due to heart disease and cancer and our group disintegrated into madness. We got no counseling or support but were corralled by the board into signing a contract stating what they were going to control us or we could leave.

    Our lives suck. I had four deaths in less than a week in hospital some cardiac arrests and some stemis . They gasp last right in front of you and then you have the family and their emotions. You don’t knowYou don’t know them. You have never seen grandmas and grandpas before but you can never disconnect emotionally.

    The grief that you see in the eyes of a sister who’s watching her brother die in front of her is not easy to comprehend.
    A wife of 60 years saying goodbye to her husband or vice versa is not an easy thing to watch. A Daughter holding her dying mother hand who expires right in front of your eyes is not some thing one can disconnect from. We cannot go home without being affected by all this.
    And The system is fucked up all it demands is more from us they don’t treat us or the patients as humans.
    More paperwork more explanations more regulations.

    Seeing family members at bedside side when they’re gasping their last and they r still hopeful That their loved one is going to come back iz not easy to watch.

    The CEOs don’t watch that, the medical boards dont watch these scenes , the regulators don’t watch these scenes , the people sitting in Washington DC making policies do not watch what we see every day.

    Listening to a grandma conversation with her husband who had cardiac arrest and had flat line on monitor and a daughter standing in grief there, was really heart breaking. Yes we can say the patient was too old. But For them he was their universe , everything. They will go home to see an empty chair of his and empty room, they may also think they are hearing his Voice sometimes.

    Walking back from ER it felt so heavy inside. I was tearful And when I came home I had to wait in my car in garage till the eyes dried before i went in home.

    The CEOs, the boards, and ABIM’s the regulator sitting far away and controlling us threatening us do not see any of this. I’m sure there are thousands like me in medicine who feel the common human pain every day but they can’t even bring it on their lips because otherwise we fall below the systems expectations of us to be “ robots without hearts “

    we are even scared to openly talk such things.

    Two distressing things that I noticed in Medicine over the last few weeks-
    1- the same medical work force -docs and non docs who risked their lives over past two years , who were “flatteringly” labeled hero’s, are now reduced to zero in many states when these heroes ( now reduced to just “disposable health care workers” by the system ) wanted to exercise their right not be jabbed , they are being fired by the thousands. Imagine the trauma and the suffocation they must be feeling now !!

    2- the medical societies and boards sending threatening emails to their members to comply with vaccine mandates aka Fauci’s agenda , and any logical Scientific, critical discussions about the jabs can be considered “ misinformation” , I don’t see docs anymore having any discussion about medical topics. They have basically taken away patient-doc and doc – doc discussion about pros and cos of medical interventions. We are scared because anything can be reported by anyone listening around as “ spreading misinformation”.
