    This is a great column! I struggle with balancing work and rest all the time, but I’m trying to do better. For me, I need to do something mindless to truly shut my brain off and rest. So I’ll typically watch random YouTube videos or put on a rerun of a show I’ve seen a million times.

    Hospital stays for me have always been stressful, so I don’t find them as a reprieve.  I’m so much more comfortable at home.  Reading this though reminded me of the connections we make in the hospital.  It’s kind of sad that those connections are so temporary though.  On rare occasion, even more rare now, I bump into a nurse or respiratory therapist while out. It takes a second to place them out of their scrubs, but then it’s like seeing an old friend.
