Nigella Making More Friends

Dr Jen Donovan and Nigella

Dr Jen Donovan and Nigella

Well I hear Dr. Jen Donovan was thrilled to see Nigella (the psychiatry consult service mascot who reminds us to not take ourselves too seriously) yesterday. And well she should because Dr. Donovan started this new tradition of taking Nigella for a walk through the hospital getting small.

Every once in a while, it’s nice to count your blessings. When trainees talk about being interested in specializing in Psychosomatic Medicine, that’s a good feeling–even when they find out just how frustrating it can be sometimes.

Over all it’s a good life, as long as you like running all over the hospital, seeing something different and interesting just about every day, being mindful about all the systemic political and cultural issues–and caring for patients.

Because when all is said and done…it’s just never all said and done.
