she held my hand

dr. barry is such a sweet doctor. it was almost 8 pm. i thought she wasnt coming in like she promised to do. she had promised to come in to see me before she left today.
anyway. i figured she forgot. it was late. i figured she’d gone home.
but no. 8 pm and she arrives into the ward.
she sat with me and we talked for a few minutes. she said to me, you probably thought i forgot about you. i’m sorry. the day just ran away with me. it’ll be 9 before I am out of here.
is that a dedicated doctor or what?
but just before she left, she took my hand in hers. she squeezed it and said, take care, we’ll talk on wednesday, i kept my hand in hers for a few seconds, and she didnt pull away.
I love her so much. My heart feels so full of love for her right now.

  1. I am so happy you have found a wonderful doctor. That is a huge blessing and is rare to find one that compassionate. They are rare but they are out there. I had one of those as well until he had to retire due to his own health problems, unfortunately. I worry about him and pray he is doing well. He was my psychiatrist for about 20 years and he sounds a lot like yours. He was so compassionate and I know he genuinely cared for me as a person as well as his patient. I told him was Jesus like because he saved so many people’s lives his wisdom, love, compassion and caring. He was so humble and would get so embarrassed when I complimented him. He truly saved my life and I wouldn’t be here today without being so blessed to have him as a Psychiatrist. I will always love him. I am happy you have a great one. She sounds like a beautiful inside and out kind of woman. She truly cares. That is so awesome. I am very happy for you. You deserve to have a good doctor to help you and I am sure she cares for you because you are such a wonderful lady, as well. Love and hugs, Sue

  2. She is an awesome doctor. I am grateful you have such a caring and loving doc. That is so important in recovery. I miss that in my therapy. I have a caring psychiatrist but i don’t have a caring therapist. Going to try one Mon
