With tears in my eyes and a swollen heart (in a good way :), I just finished reading this remarkable book. Dr. Hill is an amazing author, palliative pediatric physician, humanitarian, and leader in his field. This is the true story of a very gentle and sensitive boy who grew up to be a medical student struggling to make sense of the hurt and pain he witnessed– and not knowing how to cope with the overwhelming physical and emotional stress that he experienced. This is a “must read” for anyone struggling to find their way through burnout, vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and addiction in the medical world.
