    So terrible about Dr. Lorna M. Breen taking her own life. IT IS DIFFICULT working hard to save patient’s lives and having them die, you can’t help but think about it. Doctors, PLEASE try to do something different and very enjoyable after work, preferably with family or friends; do NOT be alone in these times of so much trauma, deaths and dying. You simply CANNOT SAVE THEM ALL. It is NOT your fault nor did you fail, it’s the very virulent nature of this dreadful virus, Please try not to let it affect your own lives!
