On the first day of a pediatric ophthalmology residency, my colleagues and I met up at a quiet spot outside the pediatric hospital in the northern California city of Palo Alto.
As the sun set over the San Joaquin Valley, we walked toward the office, and a few of the residents were seated on couches or sitting in front of computers.
We sat in a corner of the room and asked each other questions about our patients.
They seemed to have little interest in discussing what happened the day they were born, but they all wanted to know about their own children.
I was excited to talk with them.
My patients’ medical conditions had long been my first concern.
I knew what they looked like, how they moved, what their mouths and ears looked like.
I could tell that the answers to some of these questions were difficult, but not impossible.
My practice, in fact, was in the midst of a massive, multi-year effort to try to figure out how best to help our patients understand their own bodies.
But my questions were not about the medical condition of the patients.
Instead, they were about how to help my patients understand and respond to the world around them.
We would have dinner together to share our medical and physical histories, or we would talk about what we were doing to try and help them feel more comfortable and less stressed about the world they lived in.
This kind of openness and empathy was what I loved about being a pediatrician, but it was also what frustrated me.
For one, I had a lot of patients who were very different from me.
Most of them were not happy about their bodies.
They had no idea how they looked, how their mouths, hands, and feet felt, or what their minds and bodies were like.
When my colleagues sat with them, they felt as though they were doing their own research, which wasn’t very helpful.
The people who were the most troubled and unhappy were the ones who had no knowledge of their own body or their bodies’ anatomy.
I wanted to help them understand what they were experiencing, and I also wanted to give them the tools to understand how to care for themselves better.
I needed to help their children understand that their bodies were their own and that their body was their own.
And I also needed to let them know that I could be a part of their healing.
The most difficult thing about my work in pediatric ophtology is that we are very lucky to have children with different bodies and different health problems.
Because of the nature of my practice, we have a number of children who are just different.
We are fortunate to have one pediatric oophthysmologist and one pediatric neurologist, both of whom have expertise in children’s neurology and who specialize in children with epilepsy.
We also have one ophthalmic neurosurgeon who specializes in children who have macular degeneration.
I am lucky to work with parents who are well-meaning and compassionate, but also who are not completely understanding their children’s body, their health, and their future.
And yet, for many of these children, their bodies are so different from ours that they cannot even understand that they are different from us.
The only way to help the children who suffer from epilepsy is to let our bodies be a source of comfort, to understand what our bodies are like, and to give our children the tools they need to understand that.
This is not a problem unique to me.
In fact, in a number the ophthalmosciences, the pediatricians are also involved in a variety of other important aspects of their patients’ lives, from managing the childrens diets to caring for the children’s childrens physical and mental health.
The challenge for my pediatric othtologists is to help children understand what it means to have their bodies as the center of their life, not as an extension of their mind or body.
We have to understand why our bodies have the ability to make us feel happy and to feel healthy, and we have to give children that understanding.
But we also have to recognize that our bodies do not care about us, and children do not understand this.
If they do not get that understanding, they may not understand what we are doing to help.
That’s where the power of empathy comes in.
What is empathy?
Empathy is the ability of a person to see and feel something about another person, without the need to be told what to think or do.
We need to learn empathy to have a chance at loving another person.
We don’t need to say, “I care about you.
You are beautiful.”
We need the ability, without any reason, to say: I feel this.
I’m glad that you have a great job and that you’re doing so well at your job.
“We also need to develop the ability for empathy to go beyond just a simple act of feeling compassion.
Empathy isn’t just about how we
