Annoying people? Goodness, Man. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Your caring comes out in your communication style. I worry about how much you do care! My doc told me once that you MUST find a way to turn it off (when you leave for the day?) because you'll end up burnt out and that will only be a tragedy (in that it removes a truly caring person from the profession). She made it very clear that turning it off for a bit does NOT mean that you don't care, or that you have stopped caring, it just means you've put it on hold so you can reenergize. I so love my doc. :D
