One reason I work in medical: seeing someone pull back from the brink of death is priceless.

Seeing a patient come in for a checkup gripping the pill box I gave her at the last visit, seeing the lettering worn off the little flip-doors because she has been using it and it's working and her viral load is way down and she is smiling. She feels better.

And I feel better.

We take for granted our ability to keep ourselves relatively stable and healthy. Some folks need a little extra help.
