A physician's journey to walk again and how she learned self-compassion

“Suffering something similar in my career, I know the detrimental impact of not having a voice or being heard in the medical community. Medical professionals do not want to appear weak, so they continue until something breaks.

As a pain physician, I understand where the frontline health care workers are coming from. The intense pain and suffering that they are experiencing. I want to help those that feel this pain before it becomes too much. In my writings, I reveal my own personal journey from burnt out to balanced life in medicine and the advice that helped me. I hope it will help you too.

You are not alone.”

Olivia Ong is a pain and rehabilitation medicine physician in Australia.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “The unspoken pandemic in frontline health care workers.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/06/the-unspoken-pandemic-in-frontline-health-care-workers.html)
