Retreat

It’s the season for retreating for many of us. This time of year I am systemically faced with the culmination of the year’s deeper meaning. Most years a lot of things bubble up to the surface around November and December- leaving me a little raw and cracked open come the end of the year. I…

The sun and the sky

Every time someone asked how my week was going this week the only word I had that came to mind was “testing.. it’s been a testing week.” Was it the new moon? Maybe. From challenging (albeit normal) bumps in the new business road, long work days, dreary weather, and unexpected fallouts from old support systems-…

Wishful Thinking or Panic?

The policies on how we manage low back pain are changing. A new revision to international guidelines in low back pain management will be leading GPs in a new direction when it comes to the initial treatment of a very common condition.

Texts, posts, time spent, phone calls- from patients, friends, colleagues,…

Delegation

There was a moment when I was a 3rd ish year AT student, working at a provincial level multi-sport event. An athlete went down in the middle of the competition mat and in my head I thought “wow that was a good ankle sprain!”- then milliseconds later realized that everyone was looking at me.. and…

Forecast

Letting things go is hard. Until, you do. I had a good childhood. I was never left without, and I was always surrounded by people who loved me. I had a childhood that doesn’t stand out, so much so that until recently I even haven’t had a lot of stand out memories. I used to…
