I cannot fathom the emotional toll these last few weeks have had on you and your colleagues. Everyone is grateful for the hell you guys are putting yourselves through while fighting this bastard of a virus. I am an independent pharmacy owner in rural Mississippi and have started to have patients testing positive. The majority down here still do not understand the severity of what is currently happening. I truly believe the hell you guys are going through will lead to better ways for Official I’m not the Superhero i’m the PaPa with superpower shirt us to attack this virus and eventually save lives.

I’m sorry. I’m sorry society is failing. People are rallying because the infectious disease is invisible and doctors are not. COVID-19 outside of a hospital is an invisible threat that changes the fabric of people’s lives without their understanding of why. I wait for the shift from invisible disease to “That thing that killed (insert-family-member-here)” and worry about how best to adapt the systems we have to help the most people we can. I fret that we can’t do enough and that we’re not doing enough. I’m already irritated at everyone clamoring about how to make the best decisions without any responsibility for making those decisions and enforcing them. I worry about the Official I’m not the Superhero i’m the PaPa with superpower shirt burn-out and secondary trauma happening to all healthcare providers right now, and what little can be done to help it. Which I guess is a long-winded way of saying, keep writing. I’m here if you need an ear to listen. Keep on doing what you’re doing.

I’m thankful as a medic, I haven’t had a true mass casualty incident to triage. Most patients I had when I had command of a scene was 10 – all low acuity, and help quickly arrived. I can’t imagine what making those decisions does to a person. Even with all the knowledge, and all the training, it isn’t an easy choice. I listened to an Official I’m not the Superhero i’m the PaPa with superpower shirt podcast episode about the triage procedure of helicopter transfers for patients in hospitals during hurricane Katrina. That was such a sobering experience, just listening to it. Can’t even imagine what stories you’d have to tell.
