    One thought on “Physician Suicide Letters Answered”

    1. Full disclosure: I edited this book. Fuller disclosure: Therefore I benefited more than any normal reader. I read it multiple times, never got bored, was deeply moved and enraged.This book changed my whole understanding of the problems we face trying to find affordable, compassionate, competent medical care. This book made very personal the cancer at the core of medical training: an accepted culture of bullying, abuse, and sleep deprivation tantamount to torture. And this is a worldwide cancer. [...]

    2. I am a rural family doctor, privileged enough to train in systems that felt fairly supportive to me as a learner, and to not have lost any colleagues to suicide to my knowledge. . . But still reading the introduction aloud to my co-resident and dear friend as we were driving to a conference, I had to stop for tears because Pamela's words ring true- "Even though I still have a sparkle in my eyes and joy in my heart, a piece of me is missing. I can never get it back. I've tried. My innocence is go [...]

    3. I started this book and was in tears from the first chapter. This is as gritty and real as true life gets. As a nurse suffering from work related PTSD, this hits so close to home. The system is broken in so many ways. It is broken for patients, providers and front line caregivers. The only people our current system works for is insurance companies and CEOs. If there is any cause you take up, may it be for the people who take care of us in all aspects of life from birth to grave. Doctors and nurs [...]

    4. Pamela Wible, who pioneered the first community-designed ideal medical clinic in America, now presents us with heart rendering notes and letters of physicians and medical students who died due to suicide. She explores and touches on the silent epidemic of abuse and harassment in Medical schools and hospitals and what can be done about it. (This is not unique to the US but happens worldwide.) This is a matter that demands our attention. At present, a cloak of secrecy gets pulled over this phenome [...]

    5. I'm an Industrial Psychologist, so probably on the fringe of this group. Nevertheless, I resonate with the pressure and a sense of isolation. The work Dr Wible is doing is amazing. May it create a more supportive and caring culture amongst practitioners! Sad to realize that there is so little help for the helpers. Debriefing opportunities seem essential. Many people experience hard times at work. Somehow the Executive and Life Coaching options seem to circumvent the stigma associated with counse [...]

    6. Very enlightening book on the apparently not-uncommon phenomenon of physician suicides. The book contains actual suicide letters as well as letters to the author reaching out for help. The author, herself a physician, has carved out a niche as an advocate for changing the medical system to make physician suicides less likely. The book was thought provoking but I wish it had been a bit more "substantial" in terms of research.

    7. It took me an extremely long time to get through this book because it is so heart-wrenching. Many of us see Doctors as people whose job it is to heal, but I think we forget that they need help too. Each letter was a different story and perspective, and I thank Dr. Wible for allowing these people's voices to be heard, and for being a voice in the community to stand up to such a large and pervasive issue that is often kept quiet.

    8. Thank you, Dr. Wible, for all that you’ve done and continue to do. I hope that every medical student or physician in practice can be made aware of your research, material, and helping heart if needed.

    9. Full Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book by Dr. Pamela Wible in exchange for an honest review. I am currently a 4th year medical student.Physician suicide is a dense, frightening topic that is oftentimes ignored or taboo, especially in the worst sphere—the medical profession. In publishing real suicide letters, Dr. Wible is attempting to bring this haunting topic to light in an effort to combat the reasons underlying the medical profession that has caused so many physicians in various [...]

    10. I found this book a couple of months ago. I don't buy books, so I spent the first couple of months trying to find a free copy in the community. After many unsuccessful attempts, I decided to buy the kindle version (my first kindle version). I am a pre-medical student, and I told myself that I had to read this book. I can say that anyone who wants to go into the medical profession (especially physicians) need to read this.We are in an era where there is stigma against mental health issues not jus [...]

    11. I am SO PROUD that Pamela is my doctor!I chose Pamela as my doctor because the family doctor I had seen every year for over 20 years didn't recognize me in the waiting room. I had only been able to see her for about 15 minutes each year for my physical. I always had a list of questions prepared, but felt I needed to hurry. I blamed my doctor for acting rushed - like she didn't care. Until now I should have given her a hug!I am truly thankful for Pamela and the extra time she takes to get to know [...]

    12. I read this book in 2 sittings. Such an insightful look into the difficulties in practicing medicine, the barbaric way it's taught, & the affect it has on physicians. We are witness to such horrible things & often mistreated (especially during med school & residency); how could it not affect us? 400 doctors kill themselves each year; the equivalent to an entire medical school. Even though depression runs rampant in our profession, it is seen as a weakness to seek treatment. This book [...]

    13. I've always known what I was walking into when I decided to go into medicine. I didn't realize how rampant suicide was, however. I have a new perspective on the field I'm going into, but I'm still going to do it. This is my calling; this is my passion. I just realize that whatever I do and whatever I feel is to be expected and I can't keep it to myself. I have resources and options. I've recommended this book to my other Pre med friends. We'll get through this.

    14. Nothing revelatory for those in medicine. I wish more people would read this and understand what we go through.
