Dr. Kathryn's Page: Motor Vehicle Accidents and PTSD

When we hear of pivoting and changing and rebranding, many of us do not think about what this week's guest did. At 56yr young, she found herself enrolling in medical school! Today, many moons later, she is a successful family practitioner and goes about her day saving lives. She describes suicidality as "a moment of hopelessness" which as we know can spiral into the worst-case scenario. Listen to her thoughts about female physicians and suicide, and what word she uses to describe her life before medicine. :) How did a motor vehicle accident and PTSD combine to create who she is today? Quotables: "I am a mother" "You make a lot of sacrifices to become a physician" "Life throws you good and bad curves" Books:  Healthy in the Campus.  Healthy on the Set. Where to find her: Mercy Personal Physician: Kathryn Boling, MD --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/uchenna-lizmay-umeh/support
