One major downfall of practicing so close to home was having to treat people they were personally connected to. Personal feelings couldn't interfere with their practice of medicine. They had to act professionally.

How would I be able to maintain a professional demeanor while watching my sister suffer? And what would my colleagues think if they saw me break down? I pushed those thoughts to the back of my mind. I couldn’t worry about that now. My big sister needed me. It wouldn’t be the last time that Fellease or someone else I knew showed up at the hospital during my shift. One time, I barely missed an old friend.
