The patient:physician bond occurs the moment the physician asks…
“Is it okay for me to listen to your heart?”
Acceptance. … The patient accepts the care.
Touch. The doctor touches the patient.
Bond. You give a piece of your heart away to the patient:physician bond. You tell the doctor things of a private nature that no one else knows because some things are not just said to ‘anybody’, ever, but to one doctor in a lifetime.

Remember not to get too serious about life and realize you’re not in it alone. If may feel like you are alone, but betcha that no one’s like you. Keep humor, music, food and art as parts of medicine, representing Quality of Life (QoL). Keep smiling!
And do what you can do, each moment of the day.
