- Kevin Barraclough, general practitioner
- Painswick, Gloucestershire
I mostly gave up reading the general practitioner trade magazines some years ago. Reading them was like having an endlessly pessimistic friend following you around, whispering in your ear all the time. I would alternate between impotent rage and mute depression. Now that they go into the bin, I no longer feel the entire world is against me, and I've stopped having the injections. The exception, which I always read, is Tony Copperfield's splenic rant in Doctor magazine against all that is wrong with being a doctor in general, and a GP in particular.
