Today I had one of those days where I felt like public enemy number one! Do you know the days I mean?
Don’t get me wrong, I did some work that made me feel good and got some nice feedback from patients. But, most of the day was spent giving unwelcome news, making decisions to manage risk and generally being ‘bad cop’.
The amount of times today, I’ve wanted to say, “Look! I’d rather we could work together and get along, but the long and short of it is- I’m not here to be your friend, I’m here to keep you safe!”
The trouble working in the environment that I do, is that trying to keep people safe, does not always match their plans…
Still, I remind myself why I do this… And it’s so, so, utterly worth it.
And go back again tomorrow.
