Happy New Decade, everyone.  For over 25 years I cared for 4-10 stress illness patients every week.  A big part of the reason for my retirement in August 2009 was the recognition that for every one of them, tens of thousands more were not receiving the care they deserved.  I now work toward changing the training and practice of health care professionals so that this doesn’t continue.  But I knew I would miss the interaction with individual patients. I was reminded of this recently when a friend, who works to alleviate HIV/AIDS in a developing country, included the following quotation in her December holiday letter.
