What Bryan brought out so well relates to all of us.  Yes, it is sometimes very
painful to admit we have these human characteristics and traits.  Yes, it DOES
concern us as histotechnologists.  We are a caring people (I hope) and the more
we know, the more we can understand, the better we can relate, deal, work and
resolve these issues.  This is part of our healing profession, believe it or
not!  I have worked with too many people who did not understand one whit about
what was going on in their co-workers lives.  This created animosity that could
have been aleviated had the workers been sensitive or compassionate to the
situation and did a little bit of befriending to the co-worker having
problems.  None of us truly knows what is happening in the private lives of our
co-workers; it is the rare person indeed who reaches out to assist, to become
involved, to care.  Those who do are truly blessed by a friendship and
thankfulness for doing the reaching out.  The more we assit in healing by
befriending our co-workers (until proven otherwise), the better our working
environment will be.   Sharon Osborn
