Let's be honest. CPE is hard. Not as horrible as the middlers made it sound (no offense, friends), but it is hard.
I realized yesterday that I'm starting to feel pretty tired from the summer. This seems alright, since I only have two weeks of CPE left, the last of which will be spent doing evaluations and such. So, I esentially have one week of CPE left. It's been nine weeks of non-stop chaplaincy. On an average day, I document that I've had conversations with over thirty people. That's not including the many brief conversations that I don't document. It also feels rather simple to write just the room number, patient's name, some code to describe our "pastoral care" and how much time we spent with them. It looks like this:
