1. Rather than “eat when you can, pee when you can, sleep when you can”—you MUST for the sake of your patients, and the rest of your team, and most importantly yourself, take care of YOU. You likely took an oath to do this with the line: “I WILL ATTEND TO my own health, well-being, and abilities in order to provide care of the highest standard” as written in the Revised Declaration of Geneva aka a Modern-Day Physician’s Pledge in 2017. This line had been long overdue. If you need to attend to your basic bodily needs, do so, as a priority. If this competes with your work as an intern or resident, let your resident or attending know to help arrange for temporary coverage. After cancer and birthing two babies, you absolutely cannot care for others unless you care for yourself. As you matriculate into becoming a resident supervising a team, prioritize your intern and co-resident’s needs for self-care, and most importantly your own. With this proper alignment of priorities, and support to honor those priorities, I believe that medicine can remain filled with the whole-hearted compassionate individuals that were hand-picked, who are full of self-compassion as the norm, rather than the exception.
