I feel more people such as myself have turned to comfort foods opposed to touch. Great to listen 🎶 and know an alternative is exercise to raise selenium levels.

There is really no need for a clinical neuropsychologist in a COVID ICU or a COVID unit. I have wondered what it must be like to work there. I am trying to be there for my professional, hospital colleagues, but it has been hard to truly grasp their experience. Dr. Nick's description touched me. The concept of a vortex trying to suck you and the patient in was very helpful. When I tell someone they have terminal brain cancer it is an emotional experience for me, but I do not have a sense of a vortex sucking me and my patient in and taking us down. In the course of clinical training, we are taught to be empathic and to be with our patients. Being in a vortex with a patient has a very different feel to it. Thank you, Drs. Nick and Sanjay for sharing this. I now have a better understanding.
