Sometimes people are in so much pain and have so little hope that they contemplate suicide. A patient confided in me that I am their last resort-that if they don’t see relief, they will check themselves out.

Now I didn’t know what to say except that this person really needed me to be confident and offer hope-I did. I also offered a hug and listened to them vent their frustrations a little.

This person’s gonna be OK.
