A year of pandemic: Through the lens of photographer Hans Gutknecht

Masks, it may sound silly, but I can’t wait to be able to see people’s faces again. Photography has been my life, picking up my first camera when I was 12 years old and never setting one down. I have always been a photographer that focuses on people and telling their stories through my lens. We all have adapted to the pandemic by masking up and staying home the best we could, as faces disappeared under protective coverings for the past year to guard against the deadly COVID-19 virus, photographe...

From giving up gambling and getting fit to coping with grief: how our lives changed in lockdown

Here, six readers describe how lockdown inspired them to turn their lives around As soon as he heard about the impending lockdown, Alex Harrison, 34, drove to his local casino in Liverpool and asked them to ban him for life.

A pediatrician finds her “why”

Last Friday, as I sat finishing up notes on the last of my almost 30 physicals (this number is never any surprise for us pediatricians this time of the year, it’s back to school week, so every Thomason, Dickinson, and Harrison is lining up for sports physicals and regular physicals and all sorts of clearance and medication forms that need to be filled out and turned in “yesterday.”) I took a deep breath and exhaled, my mind filled with the events of the day. As is customary, my beloved patients ...

Mom with ALS faces doubt and uncertainty as clinical trial progresses

When Lisa Wittenberg got a van in April that could accommodate her wheelchair, she got her nails done, ate at In-N-Out Burger and shopped at Target.

The 46-year-old mother of two was diagnosed in August 2017 with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS.  Also known as Lou Gehrig’s dis...

How to find purpose in the age of burnout

A recent sports injury required me to have surgery. As a cardiothoracic surgeon, my experience as “the patient” reminded me of lessons-learned years ago on finding one’s purpose. You should never underestimate your capacity as a health care professional to dramatically impact the lives of your patients. As a pre-med in college, I interviewed at Johns Hopkins Medical School under an early decision program. I was beyond excited. After my interview, I returned to my small college in upstate New Yor...

Lack of advance care planning puts some populations at risk

Photo: Sheila Sund via Flickr More than a quarter of older Medicare beneficiaries have yet to document their advance care planning (ACP) wishes, according to a recent study by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco. Latinos, African-Americans, those with lower education levels and people with lower incomes were at greatest risk of not discussing or carrying out ACP. That leaves many people subject to receiving end of life care that they may not want and may go against thei...

Caring for Trauma Survivors and Caring for Yourself in the Process: Everyday Tips for Non-Professionals

Elise just told me about her past. I knew she had been through a lot, but not all that. She said her mom hit her and left bruises when she was a kid, her neighbor touched her where she didn’t want to be touched, and I guess her brother was alcoholic. There was a lot of other stuff, too. It has gotten better in the last couple years so that is good. I have known their whole family for a long time and never knew any of that. What do I do now? I want to help somehow, but is there anything to do? I...

What Makes Relationships Happy and Healthy? Couples Therapists Weigh In

We tend to hold the misconception that healthy, happy relationships happen naturally. Organically. Even effortlessly. They move along an assembly line without requiring much, if any, intervention on our part. Because we worry that if we have to work at a marriage, then maybe it simply isn’t meant to be. This month we asked couples therapists to reveal the biggest lessons they’ve learned about healthy, happy relationships. And their lessons mainly focused on work—the kind you’d do in the garden: ...

Psychologists have identified the length of eye contact that people find most comfortable

It's a dilemma extremely familiar to anyone with social anxiety – for how long to make eye contact before looking away? The fear is that if you only ever fix the other person's gaze for very brief spells then you'll look shifty. If you lock on for too long, on the other hand, then there's the risk of seeming creepy. Thankfully a team of British researchers has now conducted the most comprehensive study of what people generally regard as a comfortable length of eye contact.For the research publis...

The stories of my medical school mentors

Popular shows like Gray’s Anatomy, ER, and House, MD have given the television watching public a good eyeful when it comes to the inner workings of medicine, hospitals, and emergency rooms. They have also shown us how the personalities of those who take up the stethoscope and reflex hammer run the gamut from the sweet, demure, tentative types to the sons of bitches who cut first and ask questions later. I can look back and remember a few attending physicians who trained me and shaped me and some...
