I’ve been running a physician suicide helpline for nearly ten years. People write me tomes of emails. They’ll conclude with “I feel so much better for sharing this for the first time. Don’t worry about calling me back. Thank you for reading this.” Writing is healing, especially when shared with someone who won’t report you to a medical board. You may write me 24/7 with your confidential email here. I highly recommend that you write daily in your own journal. You are also welcome to join our trauma writing retreats or any of our peer-to-peer support groups.
