So fractured, and I had not eaten well or slept well, or even changed the expression on my for months. I am sitting in a cubicle, behind paper-thin curtains and I shook with the effort not to cry. I was an inch away from defeat… but I knew I had to do. Because I’m not the patient. I was the doctor. In this powerful memoir, Joanna Cannon tells his story as a medical assistant visceral, heartbreaking snapshots. Walk with her through the wards, in front of an extraordinary and daunting moments: from attending his first post-mortem, sitting with a patient through their last moments of life, to learn the power of a good or bad word choices. These moments, and the small, sustained acts of kindness and connection that mark the life of the hospital, teach her that emotional care and mental can be just as critical as the restoration of a heartbeat. In a profession where weakness remains a taboo, this moving, well-written book brings to life the living, stories of doctors and patients – and shows us why we need to take care of those who take care of us.
