I stumbled upon this quote as I was cruising around online today, and thought I'd share it with everyone. I can say I've wished for this myself...
I wouldn't demand a lot of my doctor's time. I just wish he would brood on my situation for perhaps five minutes, that he would give me his whole mind just once, be bonded with me for a brief space, survey my soul as well as my flesh to get at my illness, for each man is ill in his own way. Without such recognition, I am nothing but my illness.
