feeling unmatched








These are the subjects 

you taught me, but as I sit in this 

despair, they don’t comfort me.

I need you to teach me more.


Teach me to…

consider the risk factors that led me to this point

take a history of my past to look for signs and symptoms

perform a physical exam (on my life)

find the point of tenderness

assess my current condition

determine if I am stable

investigate my emotions

diagnose my deficiency

create a management plan for my next steps

find the right medication that will get me…
