I love reminiscing about the past. Lots to reflect and learn.
This evening, I went through some of old photos with my parents. We spent some time in the refugee camps back in 1980.
So what have we learnt?
1. When we don’t have much BUT connected and have autonomy=happy
2. Having much BUT not connected and lack autonomy=unhappy and lots of worry
3. Not having much, not connected, and lack of autonomy=really bad news
The latter describes many of the patients we see doesn’t it?
Helping them with connection and empowerment is a good start.
