I just want someone to listen and to give me a hug. My internist/mentor is so wonderful and caring, but by now must be exasperated with my whining; moreover, she's got her leadership roles at the medical school and her family for which to care. I shouldn't keep burdening her.
I should learn to comfort myself without imposing on others. Perhaps this writing will help -- if nothing else, at least I can complain without anybody else being forced to read this.
