Today has been exceptionally warm. I saw several residents at a nearby nursing home today.
One of the residents I see each week wanted to meet outside for her session today. She really enjoys hot weather.
I faced a dilemma. Did I honor this resident’s request, knowing that my relapsing-remitting MS symptoms are extraordinarily heat-sensitive? Or, did I risk the possibility of alienating this resident by not paying attention to her preferences?
I decided to meet with this resident outside today. She sat in full sun, and I chose to sit in shade.
