[My work] has been such an integral part of my growth and development. I think I've been very lucky that skills that I've had and that knowledge that I've had has been valued and has enabled me to earn a living and has provided so much gratification that it builds my sense of self and my self esteem and worth and value... The tools that I've been given have been really crucial in enabling me to meet, and in forming a certain philosophy about meeting, some of life's biggest challenges.
I'm not invulnerable by any means, but I have a much better way of dealing with my vulnerability, with my patienthood, my sisterhood, my friendshiphood, my doctorhood, all of these feel like they've just woven together to make me feel grateful for life, ready for life, valuing life, living very richly. I feel like the religious, the spiritual, the medical, the healing - they're all just coming increasingly together.
