Dear Wheels: I understand your concern, but fear not!!! You are not a burden.... We have many frequent flyers...and you cannot help but establish a relationship!!! Like some others have said, we often feel, when you must return, that we have failed! Our training is aimed at wellness, and healing! When someone has a chronic condition, it is hard... you become attached, and that can be dangerous...! You cannot be objective in care, and sometimes leads to not doing the right thing...you can care to much...! It also endangers our hearts, which, believe it or not, do get broken.... so do not fear...it is love, that you are seeing... because lets face it... if you had your choice, you would not be at the hospital!!! Talk with someone, social services, or a teaching nurse, or someone on staff you trust.... get your feelings out in the open...so you all can deal with them, and give you the most quality you can have!!! Be well!!!
