Mindline (The Dreamhealers) - M.C.A. Hogarth

I'd love to have a doctor or nurse's perspective on this book. Not having any doctor friends I can consult, all I can say is that the stuff that went down in the last bunch of pages bothered me a lot. I have quite a few all caps notes.

 

Is there a point in medical training when trainees are expected to learn to recognize and respect their own physical and emotional limitations? The fact that Jahir didn't, and that so many people allowed him to do so for so long (even if only grudgingly) when he was practically a walking skeleton, was extremely upsetting. And then he was praised for it.

 

I think I'm past the worst of it. I hope.
